These healthy chocolate truffles are a delicious chocolate dessert that are rich and fudgy, but still very healthy. They are made with simple and nutritious ingredients, are gluten free, dairy free, and refined sugar free. Perfect for holiday baking!
It’s Friday and the last day of #ELWCookieWeek aka Erin Lives Whole Cookie Week and boy do I have a healthy treat for you. Healthy and fudgy, decadent and rich, ooey and gooey dairy free chocolate truffles. These are incredible and you will never believe they are actually made from healthier ingredients.
Typical truffles are made from heavy cream, lots of rich buttery chocolate, and other decadent ingredients. Not these little babies.
These truffles are made from nutrient dense ingredients that won’t leave you with a sugar hangover and it’s totally cool if you eat more than a handful. I seriously wish I had discovered these healthier truffles earlier in my life.
They seriously are so easy to make too, all you need to do is boil down some of the ingredients, add in the rest, and let chill. Then roll into balls and coat in whatever you would like. I coated mine in coconut sugar, but you could also coat them in coconut shreds, cacao powder, chia seeds, cacao nibs, or cinnamon.
I even thought about drizzling them with chocolate as well and it may have crossed my mind to dunk them in chocolate as well. Because there is no such thing as too much chocolate…right?
The truffles came with me to Tom’s house when I went a few weeks ago and his roommates were going crazy over them, like they each individually went into the container and were raving about how good they were. I always consider that a win when the boys of the house enjoy my healthier recipes 🙂
If you are looking for a sweet little treat to make for the holidays, these easy healthy chocolate truffles are exactly what you need to make.
They are simple, melt in your mouth chocolate goodness.
- In a medium saucepan, melt coconut oil, coconut cream, and almond butter over low heat. Just enough for oil to melt! Too much longer and almond butter will burn.
- Turn off heat and stir in cocoa powder, vanilla, coconut sugar, and salt.
- Chill in refrigerator/freezer for at least 30 minutes.
- Roll into balls and coat in more coconut sugar or melted chocolate chips.
- Store in fridge or freezer.
