Rich and decadent with dark chocolate and intensely fragrant from the sharp notes of warm spices, these Paleo Spiced Chai Truffles are perfect for gifting, parties, or just a mid-afternoon treat to soothe your chocolate craving.

Why You’ll Love This Recipe

  • Packed with Delicious Flavor: The sharp cardamon, fiery ginger, bold cloves, fragrant anise, and piquant cinnamon enliven the truffles with a bouquet of flavors and aroma.
  • Rich in Antioxidants: Black tea contains a group of polyphenols that have antioxidant properties. These antioxidants may help decrease the risk of chronic inflammation and disease and improve your overall health (1).
  • 10 Grams of MCTs: This recipe contains 10 grams of MCTs. MCTs have been shown to increase energy, curb appetite, clear brain fog, maintain blood sugar levels, support metabolism, and more (2, 3, 4). 

Here’s What You Need

  • Hu Chocolate Gems: To give the truffles their base of decadent chocolate flavor without any added sugar.
  • Unsweetened Full-Fat Canned Coconut Milk: To help make the truffles silky and creamy and add healthy fat.
  • Organic Black Tea: To provide the truffles with rich tea flavor and anti-inflammatory compounds.
  • Organic Coconut Oil: To add healthy fats and help the truffles solidify to their desired texture.
  • NativePath Vanilla Chai Coffee Creamer: To provide sweetness and extra chai flavor with the added bonus of collagen and MCT. 
  • Medjool Dates: To help add structure and a natural sweetness to the truffles.
  • Ground Cinnamon: To give the truffles a warm and comforting flavor. 
  • Whole Cloves: To help complement and round out the flavor of the cinnamon.  
  • Ground Ginger: To add a bold, sharp flavor to the truffles.
  • Cardamom Pods: To provide a blend of sweet, peppery, pungent, and aromatic flavors signature to Chai. 
  • Star Anise: To add a distinct licorice flavor to cut the sweetness of the truffle.
  • Unsweetened Cocoa Powder: To add the signature finishing touch to the truffles.


  • Truffles are such a versatile recipe you could substitute tea and Chai spices with any flavor profile you choose. Coffee and pumpkin spice is my personal favorite.
  • You can also get creative with the outer coating. Try using chopped nuts or unsweetened coconut for added texture.
