Mint "Chocolate" Truffle Bites (AIP)
Chocolate. That wonderful thing you miss once you start the Paleo Autoimmune Protocol. Don't worry, with just a few minutes and a few ingredients you can eat something chocolatey again.
This "chocolate" recipe uses carob powder to replace cocoa. Now, I admit carob is no exact replica of chocolate. But when used the right way it is a VERY close substitute! You'd swear that these were real chocolate-mint flavour. Which makes me very excited! Chocolate mint and I are BFFs from way back. Oh, how I missed you. These fudgey, minty, bites of deliciousness will take care of your chocolate (& mint) cravings! Plus, they are super healthy and pack a good punch of healthy fats.
A bonus of using carob powder is it's natural sweetness. The sweetener in this recipe is optional, as the sweet potato, coconut & carob are all sweet on their own. Perfect if you're really needing to watch your sugar intake. And yes, I said sweet potato. Don't be weirded out; it is really the magic ingredient here. Trust me.

Can I sub pumpkin for the sweet potato? Have some to use up
Absolutely! Just adjust sweetener to taste. ;)
Chocolate mixed with mint sounds like a great combination
