Hello, hello! Today I am sharing simple healthy truffles recipe made with only 4 good-for-you ingredients! This is the perfect, healthier snack made with no heavy cream, flours or refined sugar.
You’ll need 4 ingredients for these simple healthy truffles! Yup, that’s it, just 4! They are chickpeas, cocoa powder, peanut butter and rice syrup.
Whether you use chickpeas already cooked and tinned, or cook them yourself , they’re a great source of fiber and protein.
If you are a bit surprised or put off by the fact that chickpea is one of the ingredients, please trust me, you will never know it is here!
If you do want to make these truffles a bit crunchy, coat them in some melted dark or raw chocolate and sprinkle with touch of salt. D*I*V*I*N*E
To make these even more rich and decadent roll each truffle in a topping of your choice. I decided to roll mine in cocoa powder, but you could use desiccated coconut, crushed nuts or cocoa nibs.
Here's the simple healthy truffles recipe
