As for these truffles, I had trouble deciding on a name. I'll tell you why. They taste JUST like strawberry cake balls. But they don't require ANY baking. Which makes these sweets a quick and easy treat to put together. I thought of truffles because they're also no bake, round, usually have a coating, and pretty. And these taste like strawberry cake batter! That is when I made up my mind. Enjoy!
½ cup coconut flour
1 scoop vanilla protein powder
¼ cup gluten free oats
2 Tbsp. xylitol or stevia
2 Tbsp. sugar free maple syrup
White Chocolate, melted
Red food coloring
1. Combine all truffle ingredients, except maple syrup, in a food processor or blender. Turn on and blend for about 1 minute or until mixture appears well combined. At this point, it looks crumbly but holds together. Add in the maple syrup and blend until mixture is smooth and comes together.
2. Line a flat dish with parchment paper. Using your hands, roll about 2T of truffle batter in your hands, forming a ball. Place the truffle on parchment paper. Repeat this process until 18 truffles are made.
3. Roll each truffle in xylitol and place back on the parchment paper. Melt the white chocolate and stir in 2 drops of red food coloring, if desired, and drizzle white chocolate on each truffle. Top with sprinkles and place the truffles in the fridge for 1 hour. Remove and serve immediately. Enjoy!
