These 5 ingredient dark chocolate peanut butter truffles are vegan, gluten free, & absolutely delicious! They’re naturally sweet and make for a great no-bake, healthier dessert.
I initially thought of this idea while I was watching the Gonzaga-South Carolina game on Saturday. I had just finished my lunch and was craving something sweet, but not TOO sweet. I’ve never had a huge sweet tooth (which you would know if you’re an active blog reader), so it was weird that I was craving dessert.
During half time, I went to go and fix some peanut butter toast (my go-to snack recently), but then I realize I wanted chocolate, which NEVER happens. At the same time, I heard my mom say something about truffles and there it came to me- dark chocolate peanut butter truffles!
Being the sports loving foodie I am, I whipped these up as I watched, and photographed them in-between the first and second games. That is dedication. In all honesty- I made these on a total whim. I didn’t even follow any recipe guidelines- just went with what I wanted. This sounds weird to say, but I didn’t even try to make them vegan, paleo, & gluten free, which again, is so unlike me.
Needless to say, I devoured this batch in two days.
The basis of these is easy- flour, peanut butter, & maple syrup. I know a lot of people have used coconut flour before, but I actually like how the oat flour consistency turned out. It allowed the peanut butter mixture to thicken, but didn’t give it a weird taste or anything. Next, you gotta do the chocolate drizzle, which is MANDATORY. I defiantly added leftover chocolate drizzle once the photos were taken 😉
