Oh coconut, how I’ve missed you. But, now you’re back! So, let’s have a torrid love affair in the shape of a truffle, okay?
Coconut Carob Truffles – Vegan, Grain-free, Nut-free, Sugar-free
1/2 cup roasted pumpkin seeds, ground fine in a coffee grinder
1/2 cup carob powder
1/2 cup unsweetened, finely shredded coconut (plus more for rolling)
15 drops NuNaturals Vanilla liquid stevia (or to taste)
1 t. vanilla
1/4 cup coconut milk
Mix all ingredients until thick dough forms. Roll into balls. Roll balls in additional coconut. Refrigerate. Eat.

I’ve missed your treat posts and I’m glad to have you back! These look healthy and wonderful.
Kathryn, I’ve missed posting treats! I’m glad to be back, too. Hopefully, there will be more to come.
Deanna, these look amazing! So beautiful and healthy! I love carob, chocolate too, but carob has its own uniquely decadent flavor. Thanks for posting this!
Thanks! I’m still off chocolate of all forms, so carob it is for right now. Mmmm….good thing I LIKE carob, eh?
Carob is fantastic! And these look delicious. Glad you’re back to (some) treats! And thanks for adding this to WW this week. 🙂
what a fabulous recipe! so delicious!
I just found your blog and I’m really looking froward to trying out your grain free stevia sweetened treats!
Welcome! I hope you enjoy the recipes.

Thank you so much, Lauren! I’ll read all about it and see what I can do to participate!
Clearly, I STILL need to get some pumpkin seeds! Yum, Deanna. We have a vendor at our farmer’s market who makes a very similar truffle each week with carob and each week I go I buy all that she has left. Then Son and I enjoy them for breakfast. I didn’t make it to the farmer’s market this week and Son was not happy with me. 😉 But neither was I! Thanks for this recipe. Glad you’re back in coconut land. 🙂
Oh they are SO easy and so delicious. You really must try making them yourself. Of course, that might put the poor food vendor out of work. 🙂
