Pumpkin Truffles

Pumpkin Truffles

It’s still 90º in Texas, but I’m already making all kinds of fall-themed, pumpkin snacks and treats. These whole food pumpkin truffles are perfect for fall and so easy to make. With added protein they’re a fantastic mid-day treat or post dinner dessert!

Ingredients:

1/3 cup pumpkin

1/4 cup Georgia Grinders Maple Caramel Almond Butter**

3 Tbsp coconut flour

1/8 cup maple syrup

10 g vanilla protein (I used Quest brand & it was about 1/4 scoop)

1 tsp vanilla extract

2 tsp pumpkin pie spice

2 scoops Vital Proteins unflavored collagen peptides (optional)

chocolate chips

coconut oil

**could use regular almond butter if needed

 

Instructions:

Add everything except chocolate chips and coconut oil in a large bowl and mix until combined. Use a cookie dough scoop or your hands to make uniform balls and place on a tray with parchment paper. Refrigerate for an hour. Melt the chocolate chips with the coconut oil in the microwave, stopping to stir in 30 second increments (took 1:30 for mine). Coat each truffle in chocolate and top with sea salt. Store in the fridge or freezer.IMG_6466
