What ingredients do I need for these brownie batter truffles?

If you want to make these tasty truffles, here’s what you’ll need:

  • cocoa powder
  • almond butter (or other nut/seed butter)
  • salt
  • pure maple syrup (or raw honey)
  • pure vanilla extract
  • chocolate chips (I used dairy free, see below)
  • coconut oil (optional)
Do I have to use almond butter?

No, you don’t! If you don’t want to use almond butter in this recipe, feel free to use any other nut or seed butter. Cashew butter, peanut butter, sunflower seed butter, hazelnut butter, and walnut butter would all work.

How can I make this recipe nut free?

If you need to keep the recipe nut free, be sure to use a seed butter (sunflower seed butter or tahini) instead of a nut butter. You will also want to replace the coconut oil with dairy free butter or another neutral oil or just omit it from the recipe.

6 Ingredient Brownie Batter Truffles

Servings 10
Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 45 minutes
Total Time 1 hour


For the Filling

  • 1/2 cup almond butter
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder (or more)
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup (or raw honey)
  • 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. The batter should be firm enough to roll into balls and shouldn't stick to your fingers. If adding mini chocolate chips to the batter, stir them in now.
  • Scoop the batter using a small 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 8-14 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 a cooling rack and allow the chocolate to harden (feel free to return the chocolate balls to the fridge to help the chocolate to harden faster).
  • Once the chocolate is hardened, enjoy the truffles! Store the truffles in the fridge for up to 7 days.

    These are really delicious and so easy to make! Thank you! I think that one could even halve the amount of maple syrup and they’d still be sinfully tasty!
