You already know I'm a huge chocolate fan (as evidenced by my almost daily chocolate breakfasts), and given the fact that Valentine's Day is all about the chocolates and flowers (let's be real here), why not save some dinero this year make your sweetie these 5-ingredient chocolate strawberry truffles?

Skip the store-bought ones that are full of sugar and artificial ingredients and whip up a batch of these bad boys. They're super simple to make, use only 5 ingredients, and double as an awesome little snack.

5 ingredient chocolate truffles made with almond butter

Remember those almond butter truffles I shared over the summer? Well, we've taken that same base and tweaked it a bit to make these fudgy, rich, sweet and dark chocolate truffles. And we only had to add one extra ingredient!

We'll start by whipping together the almond butter and maple syrup into a smooth, fluffy texture. Then we stir in some raw cacao powder which is high in antioxidants and other trace minerals, some coconut flour to firm them up and make them a little extra fudgy and then roll them in strawberries.

Pretty much a 1. 2. 3. and DONE. type of deal here!

The strawberry coating comes from grinding up freeze-dried strawberries, which I just have to say are AH-mazing!

The ones I like to buy are organic, non-GMO and have just one ingredient: strawberries!

I still am baffled by the whole freeze-drying process, but it's pretty dang awesome. It turns all sorts of fruit into crunchy little chips that you can snack on, use in cooking and baking, add as a garnish to smoothie bowls or oatmeal AND turn into a gorgeous powder like this!

Once you've rolled your truffles in the strawberry powder, I like to keep them in the fridge. They firm up a bit and it helps them really get that fudgy texture.

And because these babies are packed with healthy fats and protein, they'll actually leave you satisfied after one (or two). #bonuspoints

So whether you're celebrating with a partner, having Gal-entine's Day, chillin' with the fam or just flying solo (which I think is kinda awesome!!), these 5-ingredient chocolate truffles will satisfy that sweet tooth in a way that no other chocolate can! ♡

  • Mix together almond butter and maple syrup until fully combined and smooth. Add cacao powder and coconut flour and stir until almond butter begins to thicken and turns into a dough.
  • Roll 1 tablespoon of dough into small balls and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Repeat until no dough remains. Set aside.
  • Add the strawberries to a food processor (or blender) and blitz until they form a fine powder. Transfer powder to a small dish and roll each truffle in the strawberries until all sides are coated.
  • Place in the fridge for 1 – 2 hours to firm up. Enjoy straight from the fridge for a fudgy truffle bite!
