Toasty Coconut Truffles for The Body Ecology Diet

I ground toasted coconut the other day into what I thought would be a fine powder to sprinkle on top of a cake. When I lifted the cover from my grinder, an amazing smell greeted me. Instead of powder, there was a mass of sticky paste. I changed plans, as any good chef must do from time to time, and made these cute bonbon balls of goo instead.

You’ll notice lakanto listed in the ingredients. This natural sweetener does not feed harmful yeast or bacteria, which makes this a perfect recipe for those on The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D). Diabetics too, because lakanto doesn’t influence blood sugar or insulin release. read more

Sunny Cocoa Truffles ~ Recipe

These heavenly bonbons are free of most common allergens and acceptable for those who are avoiding refined sugar and/or on stage 2 of The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D). If you have food sensitivities, you know how hard it is to find treats that taste good with “allowed” ingredients; especially if you’re traveling or away from your kitchen.

I always keep a few different treats ready in the freezer that I can pull out when a craving hits. I also pack them in my purse or my kids’ lunchbox. During the holidays, I package them with other bonbons in tiny paper boxes (buy from party store) or wrap a trio in parchment paper for stocking stuffers. read more
