Chef notes

Dr. Vincent Pedre, author of "Happy Gut," shares his recipe for these quick, no-cook truffles that are dairy, soy and gluten-free. They're the perfect guilt-free treat!


  • ½ cup almond butter
  • 6 tablespoons coconut oil, refrigerated until solid
  • ½ cup hemp seeds
  • ½ cup almond flour
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder, plus more to coat
  • Unsweetened coconut flakes, to coat
  • Finely chopped almonds, to coat


Mix together all the ingredients (except the coconut flakes, almonds, and extra cocoa powder) in a mixing bowl and form into 1-inch balls.

Roll each ball in the coconut flakes, almonds, or cocoa powder separately to make a variety of truffle balls. Place on a serving dish or set aside in an airtight container.

Tip: The hemp seeds add texture to these truffles. If you like a smoother consistency, grind the seeds in a food processor or spice grinder first.
