6 Ingredient Brownie Batter Truffles

Servings 8
Prep Time 15 mins
Cook Time 45 mins


For the Filling

  • 1/2 cup almond butter
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • Mini dark chocolate chips (optional)

For the Coating

  • 1/3 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 1 tsp coconut oil


  • Mix together all of the ingredients for the filling in a medium sized bowl. If the batter is too wet, add more cocoa powder. If it’s too dry, add more nut butter, sweetener, or some water.
  • Stir some mini dark chocolate chips into the brownie batter (optional, but recommended).
  • Scoop the batter using a cookie dough scoop and shape each scoop of batter into a ball by rolling it in the palms of your hands (this recipe makes about 8 balls).
  • Place the brownie batter balls on a tray lined with parchment paper and place in the fridge for 30 minutes to harden.
  • After 30 minutes, remove the brownie batter balls from the fridge.
  • Next, melt together the dark chocolate chips and coconut oil (in the microwave or on the stovetop), stirring frequently  so the chocolate doesn't burn. The oil is optional but it helps the chocolate to melt smoothly and keep from burning.
  • Carefully dip each ball into the melted chocolate and coat completely with chocolate.
  • Place the chocolate covered balls back on the lined tray and return to the fridge.
  • Refrigerate until the chocolate hardens, usually 15 minutes.
  • Once the chocolate is hardened, enjoy the truffles!
  • Store the truffles in the fridge for up to 7 days.
