    Healthy Chocolate Cookie Dough Truffles (nut-free)

    These truffles are filled with things you would never expect in the same recipe.

    First of all they are healthy. When it comes to truffles, they are usually filled with sugar, cream, etc. aka they are not so clean if you ask me. Remember those cream cheese oreo truffles when you mix a package of cream cheese and crushed oreos together to make a truffle batter? Yup, those happened one too many times way back when.

    Second of all they are NUT FREE people. No nuts in these chocolate chip cookie dough truffles. Usually when we make something a bit healthier, some form of nut is involved. Especially when they are vegan (like these) but the doughy inside is filled with SunButter.

    SunButter Organic is a staple in my pantry. I use in it so so many recipes. Like that Paleo Chocolate Chip Banana Bread that basically gives me my monthly page view spike (no joke), The Best Soft Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies and that Grain-free Chocolate Granola

    SunButter is completely peanut and tree nut free. No soy, no GMO’s, NADA! Just the amazing roasted sunflower seeds in their organic jar. You can pretty much sub any recipe that has nut butter with SunButter to make it nut free. My mom used to make my brother SunButter & Fluff sandwiches as I ate my peanut butter version. So perfect for nut-allergies and for school lunches too.

    Lastly these truffles are also completely grain-free and vegan. They are the perfect dessert for that Hallmark holiday around the corner too. I froze a few for Jord to try once his Whole30 is done TOMORROW. The poor kid hasn’t had sweets in 30 days, I’m so curious what will happen after that first bite of dessert.

    Stay tuned on that front..

    WHAT YOU NEED

    SunButter (sunflower seed butter)

    Coconut flour

    Vanilla extract

    Maple syrup

    Dark chocolate chips (you can also use this brand – code rachLcoconutcups for free chocolate surprise with order!)

    Coconut oil

    QUICK NOTES

    • If you do not have a nut allergy or prefer using another nut butter, feel free to do so. The recipe will still be delicious! The creamier the nut butter the better
    • These freeze really well and I actually enjoy them frozen for a little after dinner or midday treat
    • Otherwise store in the fridge for a few days (they likely won’t last too long 😉 )

    Can you substitute the coconut flour and oil? I’m allergic to nuts, including coconut. Thanks!

    This is so cool! I love the BRIGHT color inside; and it’s neat that they are nut free. 🙂 That would be perfect for any peanut allergies.

    This recipe is amazing! I’m not nut-free so I made it with peanut butter and almond flour and it worked perfectly! I also sprinkled some coarse sea salt on the top and they look perfect! Thank you!!

      Did you sub 1/4 cup almond flour for the 1/4 cup coconut flour? I have almond flour on hand, but not coconut flour. Thank you both xoxo can’t wait to make this!!!!

    These look delicious, but I don’t see what you drizzled over top of the truffles. Is it melted SunButter? If so, does it stay wet, or will it dry a bit?
