What you will need

  • 1 cup peanut butter: (use the runny kind that is made from only peanuts & salt).
  • 2 tbsp cacao powder: cacao powder nutritious and is high in iron, magnesium, and potassium. This is why I prefer baking with cacao powder, but you can definitely substitute the cacao for cocoa if you don’t have any on hand. Here is a brand of cacao that I like to use, but there are many others.
  • 3.5 tbsp coconut flour
  • 3.5 tbsp almond flour: you can find coconut and almond flour at almost any grocery store. If you only have one on hand, you can use that for the whole recipe (for example, if you only have almond flour, you can use 7 tbsp almond flour and no coconut flour). You can also sub for oat flour in this recipe. I have not tried this recipe with any other types of flour.
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup: another liquid sweetener like agave or honey would also work.
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • dash of salt
  • 3 tbsp mini chocolate chips: I recommend using mini chocolate chips for this recipe, because if the chips are too big, the truffles won’t stick together as easily. The brand ESC has great dairy free mini chocolate chips.
  • 1/2 cup melted chocolate chips to coat the truffles

How to make the brownie truffles

In a large bowl, combine the pb, cacao, coconut & almond flour, maple, vanilla, and salt. Mix them well until you get a thick dough. Then fold in the chocolate chips.

Roll the dough into balls, about 1 inch in diameter. I made about 14 with this recipe.

Melt some dark chocolate in the microwave. (Microwave for 30 seconds, take it out, stir the chocolate with a fork, and repeat until all the chocolate has melted).

Dip each truffle in the melted chocolate, then remove it and place the truffles on a baking tray. I recommend lining the tray with parchment paper, so it is easier to clean up after.

When all of the truffles are covered in chocolate, refrigerate them until the chocolate hardens. I then topped mine with a bit of extra cacao powder, but that part is only for decoration and optional.

Your brownie truffles are ready to enjoy! Store them in the refrigerator for up to a week.

How do I store the truffles?

Store these brownie truffles in an airtight container in the fridge. They will actually be just fine left in a closed container at room temperature as well, but I have not left them out for more than a day, so I am not sure how long they last that way. They last in the fridge for up to a week.

Can I substitute for a different flour?

You can either use all almond flour, or all coconut flour for this recipe, if you don’t have one or the other. You can also replace the almond/coconut flours with oat flour. I have not tested this recipe with any other flours, so I cannot say if they would work.
