  • 1-2 strawberries cut into small chunks, OR 2 tsps crushed freeze-dried strawberries (we buy ours from Amazon or Trader Joe's)

Chocolate Coating

Optional Toppings


  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.

  2. In a medium mixing bowl, combine all the truffle ingredients together in the order they appear (starting with the cashew butter) using a fork followed by your hands to knead into a cookie-dough texture. Add more liquid sweetener, milk or cashew butter if the dough seems too dry and alternatively, add more almond flour if the dough seems too wet.

  3. Scoop out 1 teaspoon of the mixture and roll it into a ball, then use your palm to flatten it. Add 1 or 2 small strawberry chunks to the middle. Scoop another 1 teaspoon of the mixture and place it on top. Use your fingers to pinch and seal the truffle and shape into a ball.

  5. Meanwhile, add chocolate and coconut oil into a heat-safe bowl and melt over a double-boiler. Or, heat in the microwave in 20 second increments, mixing well in between, until smooth.

  6. Use a spoon to dip the truffles into the chocolate, then return them to the lined pan. Top with crushed cookies or freeze-dried strawberries, if desired.

    Return the pan to the fridge or freezer for 10-15 minutes, or until the chocolate is set.
