A special thanks to Nita West for this beautiful, snacktastic treat!

15 minutes to make


200g pistachios (100g pistachios & 100g Montagu almond flour if you don’t have enough pistachios)
1.5 – 2 tbsp powdered/caster sugar (Keto use xylitol)
3 to 4 tbsp honey (Keto use eggwhite)
3 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp water, if mixture too dry
1 ½ cups of cooking chocolate – dark 70%
1/4 cup pistachio (finely chopped/crushed for decorating)
Wooden skewers for dipping into chocolate


1. Deshell your pistachios and place in the food processor. You can grind them up fine or leave a bit textured.
2. Mix in your powdered/caster sugar.
3. Add lemon and honey and continue mixing until a dough starts to form. (If your mixture is too dry add 1 tsp of water.)
4. Shape your dough into balls and place in the freezer covered with cling wrap.
5. Melt your chocolate over a double-boiler.
6. Dip each truffle into the chocolate and allow excess chocolate to run off. The chocolate should set quickly if your truffles are nice and cold. Once set, drizzle a little chocolate over the truffles to help the chopped pistachios stick.
7. Remove skewers and serve.
