Chocolate Avocado Truffles
Yield 10–12 truffles
- ¾ cup unsweetened dark chocolate
- 1 avocado, pitted and skinned
- 1 teaspoon chocolate-flavored liquid stevia
- ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
- Pinch of ground cinnamon
- Pinch of sea salt
- 1–2 teaspoons raw cacao powder, for coating
- Place a heat-safe glass bowl inside a medium saucepan filled with 1 inch of water over low heat. Place the chocolate in the bowl and allow to slowly melt, stirring occasionally.
- In a separate bowl, mash the avocado. When the chocolate has fully melted, remove from the heat and transfer it to the bowl containing the mashed avocado. Stir them together, then add the stevia, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and salt. Stir until fully combined and free of clumps. Refrigerate for 30 minutes, or until cooled and hardened.
- Scoop the mixture into 10 to 12 equal-size balls and roll them until they are smooth.
- Place the cacao powder in a shallow bowl. Roll each ball in the cacao powder and serve immediately. Store any leftover truffles in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week.

These chocolate avocado truffles are a fantastic dessert recipe that is low-carb, ketogenic and fat burning. The combination of avocado and dark chocolate provides healthy fats, fiber and anti-oxidants to help the body produce good hormones that optimize your metabolism.
Stevia is our favorite natural sweetener because it is one hundred times sweeter than sugar and has no effect on blood sugar. Adding in the cinnamon gives a unique cinnamon flavor and adds in more anti-oxidants that support blood sugar signaling patterns.
