You will never crave a store-brand peanut butter and chocolate candy again with these homemade truffles. Made with almond butter and melted dark chocolate, you can add any toppings you like such as coconut, chopped nuts, cocoa powder, or dried fruit. Make a bunch of these to save in your fridge as a quick, sweet snack that won’t make you crash later thanks to 8g of protein, 5.1grams fiber, and little added sugar thanks to unsalted almonds, almond butter, and dark chocolate cacao.
1 cup unsalted, creamy almond butter.
1/4 cup unsalted almonds.
1 cup rolled oats.
1 tablespoon honey.
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt.
1 teaspoon coconut oil.
4 ounce dark chocolate 70-85% cacao.
Line a baking sheet or glass dish that can fit in your fridge with parchment paper. Blend almond butter, almonds, oats, and honey in a food processor. Once fully combined, roll into 1/2 inch balls. Place the balls on the baking sheet or in the dish, and let the truffles cool for 15 min. in the fridge.
Melt dark chocolate and coconut oil over a double broiler, or microwave on high in 20 sec. increments until the chocolate is melted and smooth. Cover the truffles with the melted chocolate and add any toppings.
Freeze for 30 min. to harden the chocolate. Remove from freezer, and store in your fridge.
