Chocolate Coconut Truffles (plant-based, gluten-free)

5 from 3 votes
These chocolate coconut truffles are SO GOOD!!!!
It’s hard to believe they’re plant-based (no butter, no refined sugar, no cream).
You have to try them.
For today's inspiration, let us look to the poet Rumi:
Sorrow prepares you for joy. It violently sweeps everything out of your house, so that new joy can find space to enter. It shakes the yellow leaves from the bough of your heart, so that fresh, green leaves can grow in their place. It pulls up the rotten roots, so that new roots hidden beneath have room to grow. Whatever sorrow shakes from your heart, far better things will take their place.
I can relate to experiencing the greatest joys after the greatest difficulties have passed.
If you are feeling low today, may this give you hope of a better tomorrow!
