Hi there, Slim Sanity readers! Alysia was the first person to ever offer me the opportunity to guest post way back when my blog was just a little blog baby, and I am honored to once again be sharing a recipe with you.

I am one of those people who loves having people try desserts I’ve made, only to find out later they are 100% healthy and good for them. Now don’t get me wrong, I love a decadent, sugar-filled dessert every once in a while, but I also enjoy creating better for you versions of traditional treats.

I used to be obsessed with the blueberry truffles from See’s Candies. As in, I could demolish an entire box in seconds flat. That kind of obsessed. Some kids got peanut butter cups in their Christmas stockings. I got blueberry truffles.

All this is to say, I wanted to find a way to recreate one of my favorite chocolates in a way that wouldn’t result in a sugar overdose while also packing a slyly disguised protein punch.

So I give you: healthy blueberry truffles made with chickpeas. Thats right, and I swear you would never even know they were in there if I didn’t just spill the beans, quite literally. It will be our little secret.

Blueberry Truffles

Yield 12 truffles

Ingredients

  • 1 can (15 oz) chickpeas
  • 1/4 cup almond butter (or other nut butter)
  • 2 tablespoons frozen blueberries
  • 2 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup (honey would work nicely as well)
  • 1 bar (86 g) dark chocolate

Instructions

  1. Combine chickpeas (drain them first), almond butter, blueberries, coconut flour, and maple syrup in a food processor or high speed blender and pulse until well combined.
  2. Roll mixture into truffle-sized balls and place in the freezer on a parchment or wax paper-lined baking sheet while you melt the chocolate.
  3. Melt chocolate on the stove (in a metal bowl placed over a pot of boiling water works best) or in the microwave.
  4. Remove truffles from freezer and roll in dark chocolate. Place them back in the freezer until the chocolate sets.
  5. Store in the fridge or freezer.
