Healthy Coconut Truffles

coconut truffles 9

Healthy tasty coconut truffles

Anyone want some delicious healthy plant-based truffles? Try this recipe! The base of these truffles is…wait for it…kidney beans (once blended, they give a velvety texture). You can also use cannelini beans & butter beans.

These coconut truffles are really quick to make and require no baking. It is simply a case of mixing all ingredients in a blender or food processor, shaping into balls and rolling in desiccated coconut. They make fabulous pre-work out snacks, treats for afternoon tea and if piled into a clean jam jar, a lovely gift.

These truffles are enriched with protein powder & chia seeds to provide a protein, fibre and omega-3 boost. If preferred, you can make these coconut truffles into Baileys  coconut truffles; just add a swig of Baileys Irish cream (using a Almond milk Baileys if you want to keep these vegan).

 

Preparation time: approx 35 mins

Makes 16 balls

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup Almond butter
  • 1/4 cup Cooked kidney beans (canned variety is fine)
  • 1.5 tbsp Honey or agave or date syrup (2 tbsp if you prefer it sweeter)
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1/4 cup Coconut flour
  • 2 tbsp Tahini
  • 1 tbsp protein powder (pea, soya bean or whey work well)
  • 1 tbsp Milled chia seeds
  • Desiccated coconut-to coat balls
  • Baileys (2 tbsp; optional)
