Paleo Vegan Almond Joy Truffles (V, GF): a fun recipe for homemade candy truffles that taste just like Almond Joy! Made refined-sugar free. Vegan, Gluten-Free, Paleo.
First there were candy bars and now there are… TRUFFLES!! Who’s excited?!?
Can there truly be enough Almond Joy treats?
If you said “yes,” I will see you next Monday! For everyone else, let’s gather ’round the Almond Joy fire! Alright, that sounds a tad dangerous… and yummy!
Meanwhile, I think there is no such thing as too many homemade Almond Joy treats! And neither does my mom! Especially since she continues to ask for the next Almond Joy creation every time I see her. 😉
Something about the holidays just begs for truffles, candy, fudge, cookies, brownies, and all the tasty things. Alright, I’m gonna go ahead and shout out my newly minted (but no mint-included, to avoid any confusion) Vegan Gluten Free Chocolate Cupcakes. They’re SO good. And honestly, cupcakes need some holiday love too!
Wait, what was I saying?
Right! Holiday, candy, my mom… Well, since Thanksgiving is safely tucked behind us, and we have all the super fun gift-giving extravaganzas ahead of us, let’s get started!
Also, by the by, how was your Thanksgiving? Also, if you were in Canada, allow me to super belatedly ask you how your Thanksgiving was? And if you didn’t celebrate Thanksgiving, what fun adventures did you get into? 🙂
I can and I must live vicariously through you!
As for Erik and I, we spent some super quality time with my mom, my sisters Penny, Monica, Jenny and their husbands, plus Jenny’s two little ones: Dylan and Kai.
But can you believe that Kai is about to turn four-months-old already? One second, he weighed almost nothing and had the tiniest little fingers I’d ever seen (even on a Barbie!! Okay, I exaggerate). And now he’s in that super adorable chubby phase, where he’s always smiling and looking around the room. He’s even trying to communicate with us now! I mean, grunting is totally communication right?
Anyway, it’s times like these that I feel so grateful to be with family. Yes, they totally drive me crazy, but they’re just… wonderful. 🙂
This year, we won’t be seeing two of my sisters for Christmas, so it was just so important to me that we soak in all the time we could over Thanksgiving.
Anyway, enough of this wistfulness! And onto these Paleo Vegan Almond Joy Truffles. I made an advanced batch for my mom and sister for Halloween and they just LOVED it. They’re lots of fun to make, and maybe even qualify as a tad bit crafts-y. The best part: DRIZZLE.
Always the drizzle.
I also whipped up a few extra healthy holiday dessert recipes for everyone to share: no bake chocolate coconut bars, chocolate coconut cups, gingerbread homemade breakfast bars and ultimate peanut butter chocolate bars (yes, they are as good as they sound). But I’m totally kicking myself for not making my pecan fudge, pumpkin chocolate chip oatmeal breakfast cookies and maple pecan brownies. Maybe for Christmas?
Meanwhile, I’m already thinking of all the ways to give these almond joy truffles for the holidays! They’re perfect for gift-giving, or if you’re so inclined, gift-receiving as you should totally make a batch for yourself. They’re awesomely shelf/room temperature stable, and also delicious straight out of the fridge or freezer (if chilled desserts float your boat).
As always, if you got too sleepy to read the post and just need the basic deets/finer points of these Paleo Vegan Almond Joy Truffles, here they are! These dessert truffles are:
- soon-to-be your favorite new homemade almond joy recipe
- made with just 5 ingredients
- bursting with delicious coconut flavor
- dipped and drizzled in just the right amount of chocolate
- the perfect healthy holiday dessert recipe to satisfy your sweet tooth cravings
- vegan, paleo, gluten-free, dairy-free
- one of the tastiest ways to enjoy a vegan almond joy
- …and really a paleo almond joy! 😉
- wonderfully refined sugar-free

I’m serious as Christmas Day gift unwrapping, these are SO fun to make! There’s just something about making your own candy that’s goshdarn satisfying. So if you’ll grab the coconut, I’ll grab the chocolate and extra almonds for munching (need to keep the energy up during candymaking, of course). It’s such a wonderful treat to make and bake all the healthy homemade desserts with you. I can’t wait to hear what you think of this recipe. In the meantime, tell me:
What’s your favorite truffle flavor?
Sending you all my love and maybe even a dove, xo Demeter ❤️
