Chocolate Nut Butter Truffles

Thank you Lara Bar and Costco for inspiring and sponsoring today's post. #LaraNutButter  #Larabar.


I have a confession, I'm addicted to nut butters. You name it I've probably tried it or it's currently one of ten jars in my pantry. It's a habit I just can't kick. From smoothies, to toast, to baked goods I probably eat some form of nut butter everyday...

Today, I have a special treat for you! Not only did I recently discover the best nut butter since sliced bread, but I have a tasty and simple recipe using said nut butter. Are you ready for it? LARABAR is making nut butters! You heard it here first! Costco (North East and Bay Area) will exclusively carry Lara Nut Butter by LARABAR in Chocolate Coconut and Banana Nut.  I can't even contain myself.


After a week of numerous taste tests the Chocolate Coconut nut butter is nearly gone....oops! But this momma loves apple topped with nut butter as an afternoon snack. It's a downfall, but I'm a total snacker and personally I love anything that's a grab and go. Let's face it life gets busy and you just need some that's easy yet some what good for you. Well, let me introduce you to the most delicious Chocolate Nut Butter Truffles.

These babies are perfect as an afternoon snack or post dinner treat. All you need is one! I suggest making a batch during Sunday meal prep. While they'll last up to a week in the fridge you can alway double the batch and freeze half for down the road. Just saying.
