Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles

Servings 20
Prep Time 30 minutes
Cook Time 1 hour

Ingredients

For the Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

  • 1 (15oz) can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 cup pure maple syrup (or raw honey)
  • 1/3 cup almond butter (or other nut/seed butter)
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • chocolate chips (I use dairy free and refined sugar free)

For the Chocolate Shell

  • 3/4 cup chocolate chips (I use dairy free and refined sugar free)
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil

Instructions

  • Add all of the cookie dough ingredients to a food processor (except for the almond flour and chocolate chips) and process until the batter is smooth. You could also try blending the ingredients together in a high speed blender if you don’t have a food processor. I haven’t tried this, but it might work.
  • Once the batter is smooth, stir in the almond flour and chocolate chips by hand (use as many chocolate chips as you like).
  • Scoop the batter with a cookie dough scoop and roll into balls then place on a tray lined with parchment paper. Place cookie dough balls in the freezer to harden for 30-60 minutes.
  • Once the cookie dough balls have hardened, melt together the dark chocolate chips and coconut oil (in the microwave or using the double boiler method), stirring frequently  so the chocolate doesn't burn.
  • Remove the cookie dough balls from the freezer and coat each one in melted chocolate then place back on the lined tray. Drizzle with any remaining melted chocolate and sprinkle with sea salt (optional).
  • 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 5 days or in the freezer for 2-3 months.

  1. Half cup of salt seems like it may be too much, right?

    1. Oh my goodness!! Yes, thank you so much for catching that! It’s fixed now.

  2. 5 stars
    Love it. These truffles are so delicious! After I took it out from the freezer and stored it in the refrigerator, can it still be eaten for 7 days? or only 5 days? Thanks.

    1. I would recommend only about 5 days in the fridge. So glad you are enjoying them! :)

    2. I like to store them in the freezer since they will last for months and just get a couple out an hour or two before eating them!
