OK, I admit it: I only write this blog so that I can always eat all the yummy stuff myself. That’s why right now I ate two more of the delicious Chocolate Cashew Butter Truffles. But hello, I have to be able to describe exactly how they taste. Maybe I’ll take a third while I’m at it?
Chocolate Cashew Butter Truffle
Small private excursion – HUSKIES
Oh yes, before I continue with the delicious truffles again, a few news about the husky mom. Today I got again a super video from our breeders. The little puppies are so cute and we (especially my husband) can’t wait to finally see the little ones. Sunday, 10.2.18 is the day. We are already sooooooo excited and also look forward to a video. Since I don’t want to annoy all FOOD JUNKIES here on the site too much with funny and cuddly dog videos, there’s an extra homepage WAPI & YUMA! Just have a look.
But now there is only info about the delicious vegan truffles
Why did I come up with this exact recipe? Because I would like to make Truffle wanted to make that do without dates. Dates are healthy and full of fiber and minerals, no question. However, they have quite a high glycemic index because they contain a lot of natural fructose. But I wanted to have a different variant, with a higher protein content – but at least as tasty.
Once again, raw cacao is involved, some maple syrup and coconut flour. But why coconut flour?
I have briefly summarized the advantages here:
- high fiber
- low carbohydrate
- rich in protein!
- Contains only a quarter of the calories of coconut flakes
For me, these truffles are the perfect answer to a healthy praline, vegan snack, or protein-packed energy boost before or after a workout. But you don’t have to be physically active to burn energy. Because you also need brain power when studying or in the office.
Yummy! In terms of taste, you can look forward to a creamy, chocolaty, coconutty temptation that practically melts in your mouth and has a slightly sticky effect on the palate (like a really good caramel candy). Now all that’s missing is a delicious cover, I’d say? Here are a few suggestions:
But these are just a few suggestions from my side. Here you can try out and get creative. I’m thinking carob powder, lucuma or cocoa nibs? The variations are limitless. Let me know what you love most and feel free to comment at the bottom of the page.
