Paleo truffles

My mum’s birthday was coming up and I wanted to give her a special treat. She doesn’t like to eat sugar, dairy and gluten, I could say she is almost paleo.
So I had to find the right recipe for the right treat, and here we are.
Paleo truffles was the answer.
There are two different recipes fro the truffles I’ve made, both of them are really really simple and delicious! A good thing to keep in mind while making them is that the flavour won’t change even if the shape is awful.
These two recipes were adapted from here and here

1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
1 cup raw pecans
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup 70% dark chocolate chips, for coating

Scoop the dough and roll it into smooth balls. Place the balls on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and place them in the fridge.
Melt the cup of dark chocolate chips, and remove the baking sheet from the fridge. Roll each ball in the melted dark chocolate, then return them to the parchment paper to set.
Return the chocolate truffles to the fridge or freezer until ready to serve.
