Pecan Coconut Truffles

So yesterday I had this great idea.  I was going to make a sweet spread out of pepitas and pecans.  You know, with a little spice for the season?  Well my idea was a fail because my spread never got to the right consistency.  So instead of scrapping the whole thing, I turned them into delicious truffles!  If you like my Coconut Truffles, you will love these!

I added the coconut to hide the not so appealing color of the truffles.  You could also coat them in chocolate if you like.  These are a cinch to make and taste so good!  They would be great for holiday parties along with my Pistachio Truffles.

  4. Once firm, roll the balls into a small amount of water and then roll them into the coconut.

  1. Glad it happens not only to me. I think that's why I'm not a huge fan of baking.:) Like I can bake and do but prefer to spend my time developing savoury recipes and at same time always have dinner ready.:) Anyways, these look good! What kind of coconut flakes are those?
    1. Thanks Olena! All I had in my cupboard was coconut chips so I pulsed them a few times in the processor to get them into smaller pieces. I usually buy the Let's Do Organic brand.
      1. Ahahaha. I buy the same ones. Very creative! I love how you use what you have on hand and nothing goes to garbage.:) I do the same.:) I was thinking I've never seen that shape of coconut flakes.:)
        1. Yes, we waste nothing around here. Even the leftover pulp from juice has a place. We put it in my daughter's homemade formula. :)
  2. In this you use a food processor.. I was just wondering if this type of recipe (and all the other no bake bars and balls) would turn out in a Vitamix? I was looking at some of the Laurabars or the cookie dough bites also. Has anyone tried this?! I do not have a processor!! Yet.. :).
    1. You can try. If you use a recipe with dates, you will need to soak them ahead of time. Then they should easier to make in Vitamix.
