These Keto truffles are such a delightful treat and really simple to throw together. They are nutty and soft on the inside and covered in crunchy sugar free chocolate on the outside. There’s no need to turn the oven on and they contain only 5 ingredients.
- 200 g / 1 cup almond butter
- 50-75 g / 1/2 cup almond flour or more, depending on the thickness of your almond butter
- 8 drops stevia equivalent to 2 tsp sugar
- 2 tbsp sugar free syrup
- optional: 1 tsp cinnamon
- 70 g / 2.5 oz sugar free chocolate alternatively chocolate with 90% cocoa solids or unsweetened chocolate, see notes
Blend the almond butter with the sweeteners and 50g (1/2 cup) almond flour. Check consistency. If your almond butter is quite runny, as was mine, add another 25g (1/4 cup). You are looking for a dough-like consistency that can be easily rolled into balls without being squishy or falling apart.
Roll into balls weighing ca 10-12g. I got 25 from my mix.
Melt chocolate in the microwave (in 30 second bursts) or in a double boiler.
Using a spoon, coat each ball in chocolate. This adds ca 2g to the weight of the praline. I melted an 70g chocolate bar, but ended up using only around 50g.
5.Place the chocolate-covered pralines on a sheet covered with parchment paper and let them set in the fridge for ca 20 minutes.
You can use any sweetener you like in this recipe. Personally, I find that by mixing sweeteners you don’t get that one overpowering taste which makes sugar free sweets taste like “diet food”.
If you aren’t a fan of stevia drops or you don’t have a sugar free syrup in the house, simply sweeten your sugar free truffles with erythritol. Use 3-4 tbsp, depending on your sweet tooth.
You can use sugar free chocolate, 90% chocolate (stir in 1 tsp of powdered erythritol if you wish) orunsweetened chocolate (stir in 1-2 tbsp of powdered sweetener) to coat.
I calculated the nutritional facts on the basis that a sugar free chocolate is used. If you use a dark chocolate with 90% cocoa solids, the 50 g you will use will contain ca 5 grams of sugar. Divided between your 25 pralines, the amount of sugar per praline will only go up by circa 0.2 grams.
Enjoy and thanks for sharing! 😀
