Easy Vegan Cookie Batter Truffles

You’ve made, tried and bought truffles before so we’re not going to tell you anything you don’t know about them, except this is going to be your new favourite. These easy vegan cookie batter truffles taste too good for them to be healthy, but they are.

*makes 12-16 balls depending on the size you make them

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup almond butter*
  • ¼ agave syrup (or sweetener of your choice but flavour might very slightly)
  • 2.5 tbsp coconut four
  • 80g dark chocolate

* Whilst we love this recipe using almond butter, any type of nut butter works just great although peanut butter does tend to be overpowering


DIRECTIONS

  1. In a bowl, combine almond butter and agave syrup with a small wooden spoon.
  2. Gradually add the coconut flour in a combine until a dough is formed.
  3. On a tray, lined with baking paper; roll roughly 1 TBS of dough into a ball and place on baking paper, then refrigerate.
  4. In a small saucepan on the lowest heat, or a double boiler, melt dark chocolate.
  5. With a teaspoon drizzle chocolate over truffles, or dip truffles in chocolate and completely cover.
  6. Place back in refrigerator until chocolate has set, and enjoy!


HEALTH BENEFITS

These are as healthy as a truffle can get. These easy vegan cookie batter truffles are guilt-free, gluten-free, dairy, refined sugar and soy free. They most definitely are vegan friendly, paleo friendly, high in protein and dietary fibre, just the way we like it! Almonds are rich in calcium and magnesium so a healthy addition to these decadent bites. Dark chocolate will also contain good levels of magnesium but it is important to select a good brand of chocolate, one that doesn’t use any nasties and is made with high quality ingredients.
