Oat Milk Coconut TrufflesPrint Recipe
- 72 g coconut butter
- 1/4 cup monkfruit sugar
- dash of salt
- 1 tap cinnamon
- 15 ml ginger flavored or regular maple syrup (use Lakanto maple syrup if keto)
- 80 ml organic oat milk
- 25 g best quality cocoa
- dash vanilla or freshly grated tonka bean powder
Place the coconut butter, oat milk, sugar and salt in a microwave safe bowl and blitz on high for about 90 seconds. Take it out and stir it until smooth, if it is not smooth then place it back in the microwave for 30 seconds at a time- until all the coconut butter has melted and it becomes a homogeneous mix.
Add the maple syrup, vanilla, cinnamon and cocoa and stir with a fork to incorporate. The end result will be a smooth, glossy dark chocolate mix. Use a spoon to carefully place the liquid chocolate into the silicone chocolate mold of your choice and then chill in the fridge until set for about 2-4 hours.
Take the mold out the fridge and pop out each chocolate. If you dont like the way it comes out ( they are rather soft even after chilling in the fridge), they will be cold enough to roll into little balls as I did and then store in layers between parchment paper in the fridge.
You need a silicone chocolate mold to get these shaped up.
I feel like I say this a lot, but I was really surprised at how banging these came out. They are creamy, sweet, and antioxidant rich but also perilously addictive, as in they may not last a week in the fridge. Good thing they are only 30 calories each right?! Oh, and if thats not enticing enough, these chocolate truffles also fit into any diet you are following these days. Keto, vegan, paleo, plant- based, yum train, or I dont give a shit about any diets thanks. It comes together rather quickly, the chocolate left behind is honestly a bigger chuck of your time then pulling the truffles together. It would also assist if you dont do what I did and start licking the bowl and all the silverware, the glowing strand of chocolate have a way of making onto your face, in your hair, on the ceiling… but at least its fun. What better thing to do when ones husband got called into work at 9pm at night? Could have watched some Netflix violent historical drama, but I decided the next best comforting thing to do was to make chocolates. Having a little coconut butter on hand I went along a tad bit based on my standard chocolate recipe and think that one just got de-throned. Bonus points if you roll the chocolate in the cocoa powder after its set and molded, fancy pants.
