Hey Friday-loving peeps!
As promised from yesterday and even earlier than that here’s the current adaption of my Christmas Chocolate Truffles. They are very similar but I’ve swapped the Natvia (stevia) natural sweetener for Norbu (monk fruit). I must say Norbu is defs on my fave list at the moment and if possible I think this chocolate truffles taste even better than the originals. I did have to alter quantities a bit but I’ve got it down to a tee, considering I’ve made it for my group fitness classes the past couple of weeks.
I reassure them that they are better for you balls (oh I won’t go there) and I think they expect a half par result, because surely healthy (ier) must mean not as tasty…right? WRONG. They aren’t low calorie (but since when is the nutritional value of something dictated by its’ energy- hello avo) but they are lower calorie than typical chocolate truffles. They are high in free, have no added sugar and use completely clean and wholesome ingredients (I would say organic full fat butter is the best choice but go with any butter type spread you wish).
Clean Chocolate Truffles
Adapted from my original Christmas Chocolate Truffles
Makes 20 + servings (depending on ball size)
- 1/3 cup of boiled water
- 1/2 cup of Norbu
- 3/4 cup of skim milk powder (or full cream), sifted
- 3 tbs of organic full fat butter (or any variation), melted
- 1 cup of traditional rolled oats, grinded/blended
- 1 cup of desiccated coconut, plus extra for rolling
- Boil the jug and place 1/3 cup of boiled water into a bowl.
- Pour the Norbu in and mix until dissolved as much as possible (don’t stress about granules)
- Sift the milk powder into the bowl and add the butter.
- Mix together to form healthy condensed milk.
- Grind/blend the oats using a blender (handheld works for me- I just cover the top with a teatowel to save mess) until only a few chunky bits remain. Place oats in with the condensed milk.
- Add the coconut.
- Mix together until combined.
- Begin rolling teaspoons of mixture into balls and cover in more coconut.
- Once done leave in the fridge (don’t worry if they seem a bit squishy the fridge will do the trick).
- Serve and enjoy!
Have you got any healthy (ier) Christmas treats to share?!
