Paleo, Ketogenic and Vegan Chocolate Truffles
These chocolate truffles are so delicious and really easy to make. The only ‘difficult’ part is waiting for the mixture to chill in the fridge! I would recommend making the mixture on the night then leaving it overnight in the fridge.
If you have any latex gloves or washing up gloves you can use these when rolling the mixture into balls, as your hands WILL get sticky! It’s not a must have, but it can make things easier and less messy. Just remember to wash your hands once you put the gloves on – just to make sure any powdered residue (from inside the latex gloves) is washed off before handling the food.
The flavours for these truffles are endless, you can have coffee, toffee, caramel, strawberry, cherry and so on – all you need is a decent extract.If you wanted to go one further you could add nuts, dried fruit, or even have fresh berries in the middle. You can also play around with the coating too, I rolled some in roasted chopped almonds (see featured image) but I prefered them plain. If you wanted you could try toasted desiccated coconut, cacao nibs, powdered erythritol for that powdered sugar look or melted chocolate for a smooth crisp outer shell.
You can easily change the type of nut butter, percentage of chocolate or sweetener used to make these as long as you use the same amounts.
If you are making these for someone who is vegan, you will need to make sure that the chocolate you are using has no dairy in – some dark chocolates DO contain traces or have small amounts of dairy.
Below are the macros for one truffle – based on making 24 orange flavoured truffles. If you change the flavour or add in extras such as nuts or chocolate coating this will change the overall macros, but the information below can be useful to get an idea of how many you can eat!
