Ingredients
  • For the cookie dough:
  • ½ cup almond butter (like this)
  • ½ cup almond flour (like this)
  • ¼ cup grass-fed gelatin* (like this)
  • ¼ cup coconut oil, melted (like this)
  • ¼ cup butter, softened
  • ½ tsp real salt (like this)
  • ½ cup mini dark chocolate chips, fair trade please! (where to buy)
  • 2 Tbs. organic maple syrup (grade B is best)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • *Make sure you use the RIGHT kind of gelatin. Look for collagen hydrolysate. The brand I like is in a green can. This is the kind that won't gel.
For the chocolate coating:
  • ½ cup dark chocolate chips
  • 2 Tbs honey
  • 2 Tbs coconut oil (where to buy)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
Instructions
For the cookie dough:
  1. Combine all ingredients except the chocolate chips in a mixing bowl. Stir until well combined. Then stir in the chocolate chips.
  2. Scoop out small dough balls onto a cookie sheet (I love to use my handy cookie dough scooper for this). Chill in the refrigerator for 15 minutes.
  3. Take slightly chilled dough balls out and mold them into perfect balls by gently rolling them between the palms of your hands. Place back in the fridge for thirty - sixty minutes.
For the chocolate coating:
  1. Place all ingredients in a small sauce pan over low heat. Stir continuously until the chocolate is completely melted and everything is well combined. Turn heat off but leave the pan on the warm stove top.
Assembling your truffles:
  1. Pull out your chilled dough balls. Drop one in the chocolate sauce and with two forks gently toss it around until it's fully covered. Tenderly scoop the ball up using the two forks and allow the excess chocolate drip off before transferring back to the cookie sheet.
  2. Once all dough balls are covered, chill covered truffles in the fridge for another 15 - 30 minutes, or until the chocolate is well set.
  3. Eat and enjoy now! Or, keep chilled to enjoy later. These truffles can be kept out at room temperature for an hour or two (hello, holiday parties!), but will keep better for longer time periods in the fridge.
