Decadent chocolate truffles
These will be your new favourite dessert! You can indulge in these fudgy truffles while still feeling good about what you're eating. Normally, truffles are packed with heavy cream, corn syrup, invert sugar, and many other processed ingredients. I never feel great after eating packaged truffles, so I've created an alternative that still tastes amazing while avoiding refined ingredients and that sugar crash!
These are an easy and beautiful gift to give friends and family, or as a treat to yourself (talk about self-care!)
What you'll need:
1 cup almond flour
2/3 cup cocoa powder
1 tsp ground coffee
4 tbsp maple syrup
2 tsp melted coconut oil
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 pinch of salt
1 tbsp nut butter ( I used almond for a milder taste)
1. In a bowl, mix the almond flour, cocoa powder and ground coffee.
In a separate bowl, mix the maple syrup, coconut oil, vanilla, salt and nut butter.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry, and mix until a dough forms.
2. Next, take 1 tbsp of dough and roll into a small ball with your hands. Place each truffle on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and set aside.
3. To decorate, dip each truffle in melted chocolate and place back on the baking sheet. Top with your favourite things, like shredded coconut, pistachios, or melted white chocolate!
Store the truffles in the freezer and take them out just before eating. They taste even better cold!
