Ingredients for 12 truffles:

  • 120g almond flour
  • 60g cooked beetroot
  • 50g organic almond butter
  • 20g acai powder
  • 10g cocoa powder
  • 30g (2 Tbps) Maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 60g 85% organic dark chocolate
  • 1/2 tsp coconut oil

Directions

  1. Add the almond flour, beetroot, almond butter, cocoa powder, acai powder, maple syrup, and vanilla extract to a bowl.
  2. Blend all ingredients until smooth and well combined.
  3. Scoop the batter with a Tbsp and roll into a ball. Moisten your hands with clean water to prevent the batter from sticking to your skin.
  4. Put truffles into the freezer for 30 minutes or overnight.
  5. To make the coating, place chopped chocolate in the top of a double boiler or a heatproof bowl set over (not in) a saucepan of simmering water.
  6. Add ½ teaspoon of coconut oil and let it melt, stirring occasionally, for about 2 to 3 minutes.
  7. Remove the truffles from the freezer.
  8. Using two forks, dip truffles, one at a time, in the melted chocolate, until evenly covered and move to a tray lined with parchment paper.
  9. Once all are covered in chocolate, add extra melted chocolate on top and sprinkle with acai powder.
  10. Freeze for 10 min or refrigerate until firm.
