RICH DENSE AND CHOCOLATEY!
We all need a good treat every once in a while and dark chocolate is therapeutic for me!
I made a batch of my chocolate truffle bliss balls and these beauties always hit the spot! They freeze really well so you can always make a big batch and save them for later.
If you want to make these nut-free, simply use sunflower butter instead of a nut butter!
Top them up with anything you fancy! I like hemp hearts, cacao powder, and a mixture of a little cinnamon and coconut sugar!
If you want to go a little extra, you can put something in the center too! I love a toasted hazelnut which reminds me of a ferrero rocher or a dried cherry, the sour and dark chocolate work so well together!
Chocolate Truffle Bliss Balls
The perfect chocolate bite
- 1 cup gluten-free oat flour – (I grind gluten-free oats in my bullet)
- 1/2 cup smooth nut butter of choice (use sunflower butter for nut-free)
- 5 Tbsp date paste or 4 Tbsp maple syrup
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup cacao powder
- 1/3 cup dark chocolate chips
- Crushed nuts
- Hemp Hearts
- Cacao Powder
- melted chocolate
- A mix of cinnamon & coconut sugar
- Crushed Freeze-dried strawberries
- mix the nut butter and maple syrup together well. microwave or heat on the stove until melted together.
- Add all ingredients to a food processor and blend. If too dry, add a tbsp at a time of your milk of choice till you get a good consistency to make the balls. It shouldn't be too soft, more on the firmer side.
- Add chocolate chips and mix them in with your hands so they’re evenly distributed.
- Roll into balls and place on a lined tray.
- Freeze for 15 minutes so that they harden, store in the fridge. Enjoy!
- (Optional to roll into the topping of choice or add something special in the center before freezing like a hazelnut)
