    I was thinking about making these, and now I think I have to make them! I couldn’t find coconut flour at my local market, and I don’t really feel like making the trip to a bigger store, think I could substitute almond flour or coarsely ground coconut flakes?

    Hey Lauren! I think almond flour would work. You might need a little bit more, however. Just start with the same amount (6tbsp) and add more if needed so that the dough holds together in a ball. Hope you like them!

    These are genius! I’m planning on gifting a variety of raw/semi-raw truffles for friends and family this year – these are definitely going in the mix.

    Can Agave Necter be used instead of maple syrup?

    Hi there, love your site and have made lots of oh-so-awesome dinners – thanks! Quick question for you – I have just come back from our local bulk barn looking for raw pecans, to no avail – can anything else be used? I have raw cashews????

      Hi Deb,
      Sorry for the delayed response, I was traveling for the holiday. I think I would try walnuts or almonds over cashews (I think they would taste better) but cashews would probably still function. Enjoy!
