Nut Butter Truffles!(GF/DF/Vegan)

Hello Everybody,

 

Welcome to the second day of coconut flour week! I hope our enjoying this concept. Today I thought I would share a recipe with you thats a spin on a classic dessert. Truffles are, for me, a Christmas thing, but this recipe makes them an all year round thing now! Peanut butter, and almond butter are great, in moderation, and have a lot of good things in them. So, this little dessert is pretty healthy for you, mixed with the coconut flour, so I hope you enjoy them!

 

 

You will need

For the Truffle Mixture

  • 1 Cup of Nut Butter (I used Almond, and Peanut)
  • 3/4 Cup of Coconut Flour
  • 1 teaspoon of Vanilla Extract/Paste

For the chocolate outer layer

  • 2 Cups of dairy free chocolate chips

 

Let’s go…

  1. Line a small baking tray and set aside.
  2. Get a large mixing bowl and stir your nut butter, coconut flour, and vanilla extract together until everything is combined.
  3. Place in the freezer until the mixture is firm enough to scoop and mould (about an hour).
  4. Scoop the mixture into small balls and place onto your prepared baking tray, and place back in the freezer until firm.
  5. Melt your chocolate, either in a bowl over simmering water, or in the microwave. Whichever you prefer!
  6. Remove one truffle at a time from the freezer. Place the truffle on the end of a fork, and using a spoon, pour the melted chocolate over them until it is fully covered.
  7. Hold the truffle to one side so all the extra chocolate melts of, before placing it back onto your baking tray.
  8. Continue to do this technique until al truffles are covered!
  9. Enjoy 🙂

*if you would like other flavours in this, try melting some orange/coffee chocolate and coat the truffles with this 🙂
