Paleo Chocolate Coffee Coconut Truffle Desserts

No Cooking, Super Fast, Totally Delicious

This is one of my favorite desserts ever, and you can make it into any flavor you want – it doesn’t have to be coffee-flavored or chocolatey.

The basis for this dessert is coconut butter. If you’ve been following my blog for a while, then you’ll probably know that I LOVE coconut butter.

If you’re new to coconut butter, then check out these 2 posts: 12 Ridiculously Addictive Coconut Butter Recipes and How to Make Coconut Butter.

To start off, you want to melt 1/2-2/3 cup of coconut butter in a bowl (you can melt it in the microwave – just remember to take off the metal lid if you’re melting the entire jar). It doesn’t need to be too melted – just enough to for it to be vaguely stir-able. If your apartment is as hot as mine is, then it might already be soft enough!

Then just add in your choice of flavors – I like pure cocoa powder with some freshly ground coffee beans and a sprinkle of coconut flakes. Then I sweeten it with just a tad bit of honey.

You can use any coffee of course (freshly ground, already ground, whatever you want). I actually used Bulletproof coffee, although I have a feeling that Dave Asprey will think it’s a waste of his coffee!

Then just mix everything up, and you’ll be ready to put it into ice-cube trays. Place 1/4 teaspoon of coconut oil into each ice-cube tray first – this makes the tops of the desserts smoother as the oil fills up any gaps in the mixture and gives it a slight marbled look.

Then just spoon in your mixture into the ice-cube tray and pat it down.

You should be able to make 6-7 of these desserts with the recipe. Freeze them for 4-5 hours (it will probably harden in an hour or two, but I haven’t tested this out). If you’re really lazy, you can also just eat the mixture straight from the bowl without freezing it!

Let the dessert defrost for around 15-20 minutes before serving it (otherwise it’ll be too hard to bite into). It’s perfect with a cup of tea or coffee or as a quick snack.

I love the ice cube tray idea. never thought of that. i’m sure i’d eat the whole thing in one sitting!!

    Louise - August 15

    I actually found it difficult to do so because it’s so filling! I can usually only eat 2 in one sitting.

Edwin - August 14

so… here I am again… 😛 im about to start prepping this recipe… so most likely I’ll be happy with the outcome…:)
thank you for so many easy recipes and soooo yummy!

    Louise - August 15

    🙂 Let me know what you think – I love this one (one of the healthiest Paleo desserts, apart from perhaps the Paleo jello).

Angy - August 16

I am going to use my silicon mini muffin cups instead of an ice tray! I will let you know how that goes. Can’t wait to try these.

    Louise - August 16

    Let me know how that works!

Melissa - August 22

I used a mini-muffin pan, which works just as well. Thanks for the recipe!

You Rock!

    Thanks 🙂

Davide.c - October 2

beautiful! but i don’t have any access to coconut oil, can i use something as an alternative?



    Louise - October 2

    Do you mean coconut butter? Any nut butter or perhaps even cocoa butter should work.

Diane - November 11

Ground coffee?? Really?

    Louise - November 11

    Yep – I used freshly ground up coffee beans. You can use your own coffee preference (instant, pre-ground).

      Diane - November 12

      Okay, just wanted to be sure you didn’t mean instant. Thanks so much. Sounds yummy!

I followed your instructions for making coconut butter, then made these delicious truffles.
I filled tiny paper truffle cups with about 1 tsp. or so of the mixture, then put them in the frig to harden. I didn’t use coconut oil.
They are just wonderful, and a little bit really does satisfy that sweet craving.
Thank you!

    Louise - January 9

    That’s great!

Hi t?ere! Do you use Twitter? I’d like to follow you if that would b? ok.
I’m ab??lutely enjoying your blog and look forward to new posts.

    Louise - January 19

    Thanks – yep, my twitter handle is ancestralchef

Natalie - February 18

Can you use just coconut oil instead of coconut butter?

    Louise - February 18

    It would change the texture – I would add in more coconut flakes if you only use coconut oil.

Natalie - February 18

Oops! ALSO- Can you use used coffee grounds instead of raw ones?

    Louise - February 18

    Hi Natalie – do you mean coffee grounds that has been used to brew coffee already? I guess so (although I’m not sure it would taste quite as good), and I would dry them out first.

mabel - March 14

Do you mean coffee powder that is used when brewing coffee or instant coffee powder? Won’t it taste like saw dust?

    Louise - March 14

    I used freshly ground coffee beans. Coffee beans are quite tasty, and the small amount that’s added just provides a slight crunch and flavor.

Megan - March 31

I’m all out of honey, do you think I could substitute pure maple syrup instead? I can’t wait to try these. Thanks!

    Louise - April 2

    Yes – should work fine 🙂

Connie - May 1

These are yummy. I used a mini muffin pan and was able to make 8. I ate two and I am quite satisfied. I used freshly ground coffee and it added just the right amount of crunch and slight bitter flavor that I love! These are so yummy, not really sweet but just enough to quiet the sweet tooth without waking the sugar monster. Thanks for a great recipe.

    Louise - May 2

    Thanks so much Connie – I love these too 🙂

William - June 10

My husband hate coffee, is there any other suggestion in place of coffee?

    Louise - June 10

    You can just omit the coffee, or else use dried tea leaves or ground nuts to give it a slight crunch.

Mary Richter - August 21

Thanks for the recipe. I just made these and also made my own coconut butter. They taste great. I used my caramel shaped chocolate mold and did not use any extra coconut oil. I tried 1 and it popped right out once frozen. They’re about half the size of an ice cube.
