Holy Dessert, Batman!

OH. MY.

This is HEAVENLY.

I use coconut oil for cooking because it is stable and does not turn into a trans fat at high temperatures.  But I had yet to use it for much else….until today.

I wish I had exact measurement for you because you seriously…SERIOUSLY have to try this.

Sugarless Coconut Truffles

*about 1/2 cup coconut oil (mine was in the solid state)

*about 1/4 cup carob powder (or use cocoa powder)

*a tiny amount of stevia (more if you use cocoa powder since carob is naturally sweet.)

Or

*a few tablespoons honey or other natural sweetner

*a few tablespoons finely ground flax seeds

*a few drops of vanilla extract

I’m telling you—-these are amazing!!!!!!
Oops I forgot to tell you the rest.

Scoop with a spoon and form into small balls and place in freezer.

Coconut oil melts at about 76 degrees.  Talk about MELTING IN YOUR MOUTH!!!!!

If you’re interested and I highly recommend becoming interested in coconut oil and it’s many uses and health benefits, you can check out this link here.

It’s all over the web though so feel free to leave a comment with any more information you may have or ways you use it.

I use it as a body lotion and sometimes a makeup remover.  There is an awesome natural deoderant recipe that uses coconut oil, arrowroot powder and baking soda here.  That’s next on my list of things to try.

And for those who are still concerned that eating fat makes you fat, I recommend reading Nourishing Traditions by Sally Fallon or Eat Fat, Lose Fat by Mary G. Enig or Know Your Fats also by Mary G. Enig.

I’m sure there are many more resources out there.  I do believe that the fat-free craze was dumb.  I was SOOOO into it, only consuming about 30 grams of fat a day in high school.

Most are realizing that was NOT the answer to the obesity problem or other health problems.  Real fat is in nature.  (Just to be clear–NOT TRANS FATS)  Highly processed sugar and corn syrup are not in nature.

Don’t get me started.  You could say that the new fad is all about avoiding sugar….Well, onto the bandwagon I go!!!!

What were we talking about?  Oh yah—here are a few pictures of the truffles:

At first it seems like too many dry ingredients but just keep working it through.  I used a fork.

These pictures do not do it justice but here they are in the freezer.

    I can’t wait to try these! I am IN LOVE with coconut oil… seriously. I find any excuse to lick the “leftovers” off a spoon. I love it on toast and pancakes and french toast. I love it on my face. I love it in the crust for mocha silk pie (mixed with Kahlua, pecans and grated chocolate). Yum. And to stir-fry veggies. Jed makes fun of me because everyday at least once I say “I love coconut oil, it’s sooooo delicious!”

    I tried the oil several times in my hair and even the tiniest bit was greasy for me. Maybe curly haired people can use it with success.

    I will try these and I will not use carob or stevia. Stevia is too planty for my tongue and carob is used as molasses (in syrup form) in Peru and disgusting in my memory, even though I know the powder is different. I just can’t get past it. Maybe I will use agave because I have some. I have read conflicting reports about agave and I don’t know what to believe. Any thoughts on if it is good or not so good for you as a natural sweetener?

    I sooo want to try these! They are totally up my alley! And I’m interested in the natural deodorant recipe, so let me know when you try it. Never thought I’d say those two things together.

    Jaime- I’ve heard conflicting things about agave also but I say it’s still better than refined sugar so whatever. I talk to so many people that don’t like stevia. If I use too much it makes me cringe and I can’t do it but just a tiny bit seems to work great for me. I really think you’ll like these! Very coconutty and melty and oh so delicious.
    Amy- I’ll let you know when I make the deoderant. We’ve tried to find a natural and cheap option THAT WORKS for a while and this looks promising to me. She also adds some essential oils which aren’t necessary but I bet that would be nice!

  4. Hello dude, I really like your site. With the abundance of misinformation regarding this subject on the web, it’s great to see some refreshing content. Keep up the good work!

  5. I love it! Could perhaps be a tad more polished, but it’s far better than what we use at the moment, nonetheless

    Oh, how I love desserts! :) I’ve been using coconut oil, too when I fry or even for salad dressing and it’s good. I bought mine from http://products.mercola.com/coconut-oil/ It’s a little bit expensive but good thing is that it never fails me since then. Could you post more of your recipes with coconut oil? I would really love that if you do! Thanks!

    植牙在歐美國家已相當普及,但國人對人工植牙仍然較為陌生,甚至仍有許多人採取排斥的態度。根 據牙醫學會的統計,台灣目前植牙五年成功率已高達95﹪,可見台灣人工植牙技術已相當成熟。
