What you need for these Brownie Butter Truffles!

  • chickpeas
  • almond butter
  • pure maple syrup
  • almond milk
  • vanilla extract
  • almond flour
  • cocoa powder
  • dairy free chocolate chips
  • coconut oil
  • salt

Y’all I have done it again! And by it I mean used chickpeas in a deliciously decadent dessert. Chickpeas are the main ingredient of these truffles and they work absolutely perfectly in this recipe! Next up is the almond butter. You could use any creamy nut butter here, but I love almond butter with brownies and brownie like desserts. I think the almond and cocoa flavor just work best together! The rest of the batter consists of maple syrup to sweeten, vanilla extract for flavor, almond flour to thicken, and cocoa powder for that chocolatey goodness.

All that is needed for the outside chocolate shell is some dairy free chocolate chips melted with a little bit of coconut oil. So easy and so delicious!

How to make these Brownie Batter Truffles!

  1. Blend chickpeas, almond butter, maple syrup, almond milk, and vanilla extract in a high speed blender or food processor until smooth.
  2. Move the mixture to a bowl and add in the almond flour, cocoa powder, and sprinkle of salt.
  3. Roll the batter into balls, place balls on a baking tray, place in the freezer. If initially the batter is difficult to roll into balls you can freeze before rolling.
  4. Freeze rolled balls for about an hour.
  5. Melt the chocolate chips with coconut oil in the microwave or with a double boiler.
  6. Coat each ball in the melted chocolate. (Optional Fun Drizzle: wait for the initial coating of chocolate to harden and then drizzle more on top)
  7. Store in the freezer and enjoy!

  1. These look so good! Can I skip the coating and just eat them as “energy balls” or would they fall apart?

    • Kayla Berman

      Thank you! You totally could leave the coating off and they wouldn’t fall apart, but it does add a really delicious flavor. I don’t think they would be as tasty without the chocolate on the outside.

  2. Thanks for sharing! Do they keep long?

    • Kayla Berman

      Yes!! I store them in the freezer so could last weeks or even months. I think I still have some in the freezer from February! Before you eat them just let them sit outside of the freezer for a little to soften and then you’re good to go.

    These are so amazing! I love the idea of using chickpeas, and you can’t even taste them! Says it makes 12 balls but I was able to make 26 from this, I suppose it would depend on the size of the ball you make but I’m just saying that it creates a good amount of dough! 10/10 would definitely make again 🙂
