Healthy tasty coconut truffles

Anyone want some delicious healthy plant-based truffles? Try this recipe! The base of these truffles is…wait for it…kidney beans (once blended, they give a velvety texture). You can also use cannelini beans & butter beans.

These coconut truffles are really quick to make and require no baking. It is simply a case of mixing all ingredients in a blender or food processor, shaping into balls and rolling in desiccated coconut. They make fabulous pre-work out snacks, treats for afternoon tea and if piled into a clean jam jar, a lovely gift.

These truffles are enriched with protein powder & chia seeds to provide a protein, fibre and omega-3 boost. If preferred, you can make these coconut truffles into Baileys  coconut truffles; just add a swig of Baileys Irish cream (using a Almond milk Baileys if you want to keep these vegan).
