Healthy Chocolate Dipped Almond Truffles
Yield: 16 truffles
Nutrition: calories 88.8, fat 6.8 g, carbs 2.8 g, fiber 1 g, sugars 4.4 g, protein 2.3 g
- 1 cup almond meal flour
- 1 Tbsp coconut oil refined, melted and cooled
- 1 Tbsp Agave nectar, brown rice syrup or good quality honey
- 1 tsp vanilla extract, always use a good quality
- 2 Tbsp unsweetened almond butter
- pinch of sea or kosher salt
- A few drops or powder, natural Stevia sweetener to taste, optional
- 1 to 2 Tbsp unsweetened vanilla almond milk to form the truffle balls
For Chocolate Coating:
- 3/4 cup vegan dark chocolate chips
- 1/2 tsp avocado oil or any vegetable oil
- 1/8 tsp almond extract, optional
- Place a cookie sheet in the fridge and set aside.
- In a medium-mixing bowl, place the almond flour in the bowl and mix up with a whisk to break up any clumps.
- Add the rest of the ingredients up until the almond milk. Mix well. Slowly add the almond milk 1 tablespoon at a time until you get a good consistency to make small balls. Once you reached this, start rolling to make 16 truffle balls.
- Place parchment or wax paper on the cold cookie sheet and then place the truffles on and set back in the fridge for at least an hour.
- When you are ready to take them out, in a small microwave safe bowl, add the chocolate and small amount of oil and microwave for 25 seconds. Take out, stir and do this again until the chocolate is nice and smooth and shiny. Add the almond extract and mix.
- Dip the truffles in the chocolate and lightly coat. I use a wooden skewer to do this or two teaspoons work also. You will have enough to coat all 16 truffles.
- Place back in fridge and let set up.
Enjoy every decadent bite!
