6 Ingredient Chocolate Chip Truffles

Servings 8
Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes


For the Filling

  • 1/2 cup almond butter (or other nut/seed 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 chocolate chips (I use dairy free and refined sugar free)

For the Coating

  • 1/3 cup chocolate chips (I use dairy free and refined sugar free)
  • 1 tsp coconut oil (optional, but recommended)


  • Mix together all of the ingredients for the cookie dough (except for the chocolate chips) 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. Next stir in the chocolate chips.
  • Scoop the cookie dough using a cookie dough scoop and roll each scoop into a ball by using 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 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. It also helps to thin the chocolate, making it easier to coat the truffles!
  • Dip each cookie dough ball in the melted chocolate and coat completely with chocolate then place back on the lined tray. Once all of the cookie dough balls have been coated with chocolate, return them to the fridge.
  • Refrigerate until the chocolate hardens, about 15-30 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.
