These truffles are worth the two hours and thirty minutes it takes to make, because they are sooo good. The secret ingredient that gives them a smooth creamy texture is avocado, one of nature’s greatest powerhouses. Enjoy this guilt-free treat.
1 ripe medium avocado
½ C dates, soaked and drained
¼ C dark cocoa powder and 2 Tbs. reserved for dusting
1 ½ Tbs. melted coconut oil
1 ½ Tbs. Coconut flour

Prepare an assembly line with a plate and a parchment paper.

Scoop one tablespoon of the batter and roll into a ball
Roll the ball over the cocoa powder on the parchment paper. Place it on the plate
Repeat until all batter is rolled into balls and covered in cocoa powder
