Ingredients

Scale

Pumpkin Truffles

chocolate coating

  • 5 oz dairy-free chocolate
  • 1/2 TBS coconut oil, melted

Instructions

  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone mat, set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl mix together pumpkin puree, maple syrup and nut/seed butter.
  3. Add in protein powder. coconut flour, pumpkin pie spice and espresso powder and stir until dough comes together.
  4. Using a rounded tablespoon or small cookie scoop, roll mixture into balls between palms of your hands and place on baking sheet. Transfer sheet to freezer for 10 minutes (This makes it easier to dip the balls into the chocolate.)
  5. While the balls are chilling, melt your chocolate (about 3/4 cup chocolate chips) with coconut oil either in 20 second increments on 50% power in microwave, or continuously stirring on stove top on low heat.
  6. Dip balls into bowl of melted chocolate until fully covered (I used a spoon) and transfer back to lined baking sheet. Once all of the balls are fully coated, transfer sheet back to freezer for about 10 minutes to allow chocolate coating to set.
  7. Enjoy!

Notes

plant protein powder – If using another plant protein powder I’d suggest using a blend to yield the same results. If using another protein powder such as all hemp, pea, or brown rice protein you may need to adjust liquid ratios.

paleo friendly option – If you’d like to avoid protein powder and want a grain-free/paleo option, you can use a total 7 tablespoons of coconut flour. If your mixture seems dry, start by adding 1 tablespoon of milk at a time. Coconut flour is can be pretty finicky, so be patient!
