Serves: 22, serving size: 1 10 g truffle

Calories: 28, Protein - 1g, Carbs- 5g, Fat - 0.5g

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup milk of choice (the macros for this specific recipe were calculated using Silk Unsweetened Almond & Coconut milk)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 80 g (1/4) cup maple syrup
  • 80 g + 1 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • pinch of salt

Directions:

  • Warm the milk in the microwave or over the stove. Using a fork, whisk in the maple syrup, salt, and vanilla
  • Add the 80 g of cocoa powder and stir until the mixture comes together to form a thick paste. (This takes some effort!)
  • Lay a sheet of plastic wrap over the truffle mixture so it doesn't dry out, and chill in the fridge for an hour. With dry hands, roll into 10 g balls (about the size of a standard bouncy ball)
  • Sprinkle the truffles with the reserved cocoa powder to finish. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator
