Chocolate Coconut Truffles

These are sugar-free (sweetened with agave), and super darn good. They take care of a chocolate fix without leaving you feeling guilty or sick after! 

·  1/2 cup coconut butter/oil, warmed to soften
·  3/4 cup agave nectar
·  2 teaspoons vanilla extract
·  1/4 teaspoon sea salt
·  1 cup dried shredded coconut
·  2 1/4 cups cocoa powder, preferably raw, sifted (I use DARK chocolate powder.)

In a high-speed blender, blend the coconut oil, agave nectar, vanilla, and salt. Add the shredded coconut, 1/2 cup at a time, and blend until smooth.
Transfer the mixture to a bowl and stir in 2 cups of the cocoa powder until thoroughly combined. Place the bowl in the refrigerator for about 10 minutes or more to set slightly.
Place the remaining 1/4 cup cocoa powder onto a small plate. Spoon heaping tablespoons of the chocolate mixture and roll them into balls. Roll these in the cocoa powder (or coconut!). Store the finished truffles in the refrigerator.

Agave nectar is the best isn't it?! My husband might just love these.
