If you fancy something a little indulgent, look no further than these avocado chocolate truffles. All the decadence with no added nasties...
1 avocado, stoned, peeled and mashed
2 tbsp maple syrup
170g dark chocolate, melted
4 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
½ tsp vanilla extract
50g desiccated coconut
Combine the maple syrup, melted chocolate, cocoa powder and mashed avocado in a large bowl. Thoroughly mix so that it becomes a smooth paste before covering and placing in the fridge for around 30 minutes or until the truffle mixture has hardened slightly.
Lightly grease your hands with coconut oil and shape the individual truffles with your hands. Once the truffles are round, roll them in the desiccated coconut and place them on parchment paper before returning them to the fridge for another 30 minutes.
Once the truffles have hardened, remove from the fridge and enjoy.
Leftover truffles can be kept in the fridge for up to four days in an airtight container.
