These Chocolate Almond Truffles are so easy to make! You only need a few ingredients and away you go!
If you’re anything like me and incredibly in love with the combo of peanut butter and chocolate, these truffles will be a delight! They are sweetened with maple syrup and the combination is so tasty. Plus, they’re bite sized and make a great snack!
There is really nothing not to love about these little bite sized treats of perfection. They’re made with almond flour, quick oats, maple syrup, almond butter, and coated in delicious chocolate!
These Chocolate Almond Truffles should be stored in the fridge. They’re actually tastier that way anyways!
- Almond Flour – This is easy to find at most stores. I get mine at Costco in a big bag.
- Quick Oats – Its important to use quick oats because they are much smaller. You can use regular rolled oats, but the oats will be more pronounced in the truffle.
- Maple Syrup – I love the addition of this in the truffle. You could use honey as well.
- Almond Butter – You can use any smooth nut butter here. Almond butter has a more runny consistency, so you may need to add a bit more of another nut butter in order for the truffles to stick together.
- Chocolate – I used milk chocolate chips here, but use any chocolate you like! When melting the chocolate, make sure to stir it often over low heat. You don’t want to burn it. I use a double boiler, but you can use a microwave too.
- Sprinkles – Completely optional but add a little something extra!
How to Make Chocolate Almond Truffles
- In a large bowl, mix together the almond flour, quick oats, maple syrup, and almond butter. The mixture should stick together well. If it’s too dry, add a bit more almond butter.
- Using a cookie scoop or a spoon, scoop out tablespoon sized balls of dough. Roll into a ball and put on a plate. Continue until all the batter is used.
- Put the plate of truffles in the fridge while you melt the chocolate.
- Pour the chocolate chips in a double boiler and melt over medium heat. Once the chocolate starts to melt, turn off the burner and continue to stir until all the chocolate is melted.
- Roll each truffle in the melted chocolate and scoop out with a fork. Place the truffle on parchment paper. Continue until all the truffles are coated with chocolate.
- Sprinkle the truffles with sprinkles and pop them into the fridge.
- Once the chocolate has hardened, transfer to a sealed container and store in the fridge.
