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.

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.
