You are going to love these truffles. They are super rich, so you’ll only want to indulge in couple at a time.

Ingredients:
3/4 cup coconut oil and/or 3 chucks cacao butter
1/3 cup agave nectar
1 cup raw cacao powder
1 tsp Maca powder (optional)
1/2 tsp vanilla power or vanilla extract

Coating for truffles
-cinnamon

Place coconut oil and/or cacao butter in a large heat resistant bowl and submerge in a pot of hot water and wait until it melts.

Once coconut oil/caco butter is melted, add the agave, maple syrup, cacao powder, maca and vanilla powder. Mix until well combined.

Place the mixture into the fridge for about 30 minutes or 15 minutes in the freezer.

Put your choice of coating for the truffles on a plate. (I used a combo of cinnamonn mixed with cacao powder and some lavender)

Take the bowl out of the fridge and take a tablespoon and scoop amount of the cacao mixture and roll in between palms until you get a smooth ball then roll in your choice coating until completely covered.
Put truffles in the freezer. Take out 10 minutes prior to serving.
