Now these are GOOD. They’re those little heavenly treats that you just can’t seem to stop eating…but this time thy’re good for you! With a soft, creamy salted almond butter center surrounded by a rich shell of dark chocolate they really are the perfect treat, and pretty good for sharing too(or not ;)).
I came up with this recipe after accidentally getting a little maple syrup in my almond butter, and discovering it becomes thicker and almost mold-able…perfect truffle texture! With a little sea salt, the truffles have a gorgeous indulgent flavor and the dark chocolate provides a perfect contrast to the creamy center, adding a pop of chocolate-y flavour.
Made of wholesome ingredients, these truffles are nutrient packed, energizing, full of healthy fats and totally good for you. Just 4 simple ingredients, and no funny stuff.
You can switch these truffles up and create endless flavour combos. Add a little cacao powder to the filling for double chocolate, orange zest for chocolate orange, use another nut or seed butter(peanut works amazing!), or throw in some freeze-dried or dried fruit for an extra burst of flovour. The options are endless!
Do I need to say any more? Round up these four simple ingredients and whip up a batch of these delicious almond butter truffles.
- 100g creamy almond butter
- 15g maple syrup
- 10g coconut flour or ground almonds
- Pinch of salt(optional but recommended)
- 70g dark chocolate
- In a small bowl, combine the almond butter and maple syrup until thick and creamy.
- Add the coconut flour or ground almonds along with the salt, and mix well.
- Using your hands, roll around 1 tbsp of the mixture into a ball, and place on a tray. Repeat for 6 truffles.
- Meanwhile, melt the chocolate in a heat-proof bowl over a pan of boiling water
- Remove the truffle filling from the freezer, and roll in the melted chocolate. They should immediately start to harden. Once coated, place back on the tray and drizzle with any remaining chocolate.
- Leave until the chocolate is fully set, then enjoy!
