Almond Butter Coconut Truffles

This is a healthier alternative to chocolate truffles and just as easy to make.   It combines two of my favourite superfoods, almond and coconut, and can be very moreish.  I dipped mine in grated coconut and some cocoa powder to add an extra layer of flavour and to look pretty!
