3 Ridiculously-Easy & Delicious Truffle Recipes - dairy and sugar free - AIP options

{I love having healthy treats that I can whip up in a hurry like these Almond Joy® Bars, Chocolate Mint Grasshopper Bars, Chocolate Avocado Truffles, or these No-Bake Coconut Cookies.  So I am thrilled to have Jessica from Delicious Obsessions share these 3 Easy Truffle Recipes with us today, that just happen to be vegan truffles--they're pure healthy genius!}

There is something so decadent and so satisfying about truffles.

At least to me.

They have to be one of my all-time favorite candies, but they were always too hard and time consuming to make.

I like easy. The easier, the better.

In addition to some recipes being difficult, some were also time consuming.

Top that off with the fact that I am on a crazy restrictive diet and it's a one sad state of affairs.

The list of what I can eat is much shorter than what I can't. Woe is me, right? 🙂

So, I got to work developing a truffle recipe that met my needs:
- easy
- fast
- delicious, and
- allergen-friendly.

After some experimenting and some flops, I have found the perfect balance of ingredients, all of which I keep stocked in the pantry at all times, so I can easily whip up a batch of these whenever I need.

Having friends over for dinner and need a quick dessert? Truffles.

Invited over to someone's home and want to bring a gift? Truffles.

Need to add something healthy to a treat box of basket? Yes, truffles.

If you want the recipe to be even easier, you could easily just spread the mixture out in a glass dish and boom, you have delicious fudge bites. Skip the ice cream scooping altogether and you've shave a good 5 minutes off your day.

You're welcome. 😉

Peppermint Chip Truffles

Print Rate
Servings: 16 truffles
Calories: 162kcal

Ingredients

Instructions

  • In a small saucepan, whisk the coconut butter, coconut oil, and coconut milk over very low heat until smooth. You just want it to be warm enough to melt the coconut oil and create a smooth mixture.
  • Remove from heat and add your cocoa powder, stevia, peppermint extract, and salt. Stir until smooth and well-combined.
  • Add the chocolate chips and stir until combined.
  • Cool the mixture down in the fridge for 10-15 minutes or until it just starts to firm up a little. Remove from fridge and stir well. You'll see the texture of the mixture change to what looks like fudge.
  • Using a small ice cream scoop (mine is 1 tablespoon in size), scoop the mixture out onto a tray lined with wax or parchment paper. You could also use a spoon and roll the mixture into balls with your hands. The scooper is easier, but you could bypass this completely and just spread the mix out in a small glass dish and cut into fudge bites.
  • Store in the fridge or freezer, but let them come to room temp before serving. They taste better that way. If you leave them out too long, they will get super soft, but they won't completely melt like other coconut oil-based candies.

  1. The coconut milk in the recipes... Is that just the thick coconut cream from the can or the the milk after it's been shaken?

  2. These look so good! Anything with coconut butter is my friend! My mum used to make coconut fudge with it and it was SO delicious!

  3. Lol, I can definitely relate to being restricted! These look delicious though, and it's nice that you found a treat that you can eat!

  4. Oh. my. goodness. These look fabulous. And now they are so easy I have NO EXCUSES 🙂 I just love getting your emails!
