    These sound goodI assume the 2oz of coconut should be dried/flaked and unsweetened, correct?
    Is there a calorie count available?
    Is only one truffle considered a portion?

      Hi Ryan – Correct regarding the coconut being dried and unsweetened. We don’t post calorie counts on our recipes, but there are websites/apps where you can enter ingredients and it will generate a calorie count for you. And yes, depending on your body composition and goals, I would say 1-2 truffles would be a “serving.”

    What about the cacao? Isn’t that considered sugar?

      Hi Cari – Typically cacao is unsweetened, so there would be no sugar in it.
