Paleo Mint Chip Truffles

This easy Paleo Mint Chip Truffles recipe has only 7 ingredients and is full of healthy fats to keep your motor running! To make this easy sugar-free dessert recipe you’ll need coconut oil, coconut butter, macadamia butter, peppermint, dark chocolate, stevia, and salt.

Low-carb Mint Chip Truffles are a fantastic keto snack. I love eating them right after one of my easy workouts. I exercise for an hour a day by walking, weight lifting, or doing Pilates or yoga. Although not intensive, I have found this type of excersie very helpful in reducing inflammation.

Packed with healthy coconut oil, these truffles also help reduce inflammation. They’re wonderful whether you’re a fan of mellow workouts like me, or high intensity exercise. This low-carb high-fat (LCHF) dessert is perfect for refueling after a CrossFit session. Personally, I love eating desserts such as Paleo Mint Chip Truffles that are packed with coconut oil. Why? Because coconut oil contains medium chain triglycerides (MCT’s) that are thought to boost your metabolism.

This recipe for healthy Mint Chip Truffles is based on one by Diane Sanfillipo. In addition to being a fabulous low-carb recipe, Paleo Mint Chip Truffles are also a fantastic gluten-free, dairy-free dessert.

I used to make this recipe with a teaspoon of honey. If you are accustomed to eating sweets, you will want to do so. Since going on a low-carb high-fat keto (LCHF) diet, I have been making them with no sweetener other than stevia. To find out more about the keto diet, check out my Keto Diet Recipes page.

I adore the combination of chocolate and mint! If you’re like me, you’ll want to check out these easy low-carb chocolate mint recipes:

    I just made these and they taste amazing! I love mint and chocolate together! These truffles have a great texture and mouthfeel and are super-rich and super-satisfying for a sweet craving.

    Yum these look delicious I am definitely making these tonight. Just need to buy a few ingredients which I have been meaning to get for a ages now but have been too lazy!

    I just made these tonight and they were delicious. They really tasted like chocolate to me — they have the creaminess and richness of chocolate. Before freezing them, they were like chocolate chip cookie dough. I’m so happy to have a “treat” that is really satisfying and grain-free and sugar-free.

    I actually used a few drops of stevia with no other sweetener in my truffles, and they turned out delicious. I also used almond butter, because it’s what I had. I also used Baker’s unsweetened chocolate cut into little slivers to mix in.

You are truly an inspiration…..I admire your dedication to wellness and health, not only for yourself but for sharing your knowledge and experiences with others.

    I just made these last night exactly as written, and they are delicious. I’m usually not a stevia fan, but I can’t taste it in these at all. Instead of making balls, I poured the blended batter onto a parchment lined baking sheet and refrigerated overnight. I just broke it up like bark, and the thin pieces are so yummy. Very rich taste for such a little treat. It’s so wonderful that it has health benefits as well! Guess I need to try more stevia recipes from this site. Thanks very much for this one. It’s a winner!!

    Yum! I love peppermint and chocolate. It is my second favorite combo of flavors, the first being chocolate and peanut butter. ;) I’ve been researching the paleo diet and it really intrigued me. We even have a food truck where I live called the Caveman Truck and his food looks really good.
