6 Ingredient Chocolate Chip Truffles
For the Filling
- 1/2 cup almond butter
- 3 tbsp pure maple syrup or raw honey
- 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 1/3 cup coconut flour
- 1/8 tsp salt (use 1/4 tsp if using unsalted almond butter)
- 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips
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 coconut flour. If it’s too dry, add more nut butter, sweetener, or some water.
- Stir in the chocolate chips.
- Scoop the cookie dough using a cookie dough scoop and shape each scoop into a ball by rolling it in the palms of your hands (this recipe makes about 8 balls).
- Place the chocolate chip cookie dough balls on a tray lined with parchment paper and place in the fridge for 15 minutes to harden.
- After 15 minutes, remove the cookie dough 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 coconut oil is optional but it helps the chocolate to melt smoothly and keep from burning.
- Carefully dip each cookie dough ball in 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 or in the freezer for 2-3 months.
