Chocolate {Black Bean} Protein Truffles
Prep time
Total time
These healthy truffles are too good to be true! Rich, fudgy and made with black beans, cocoa, and naturally sweetened with honey! You'd never know they were made with beans.
Serves: 16
  • 1 (15.5 oz) can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1½ Tbsp coconut oil
  • ¼ tsp vanilla extract
  • 2½ Tbsp honey
  • 2 Tbsp chocolate pudding powder (or chocolate protein powder)
  • 5½ Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 (16 oz) package Chocolate CANDIQUIK Coating
  1. Drain and thoroughly rinse black beans. Place beans, coconut oil, vanilla and honey in a food processor and blend until smooth. Add chocolate pudding powder and blend again until combined. (note: mixture may become very thick and may need to be transferred into a bowl to mix)
  2. Using a spatula, scrape mixture into a medium sized bowl and stir in cocoa powder. (note: taste and add more or less to liking)
  3. Place mixture in the fridge (or freezer) until somewhat firm, about 20 minutes).
  4. Roll mixture into 1" balls and place on a baking sheet lined with wax or parchment paper.
  5. Place back in the freezer to chill for approximately 30 minutes.
  6. Melt Chocolate CANDIQUIK according to package directions. Transfer into a deep cup or mug for easy dipping.
  7. Re-shape balls (if needed) and using a toothpick, dip each ball into chocolate coating and place on wax paper to set; sprinkle if desired.
  8. Tip: keep refrigerated.
*When dipping truffles, remove only a few at a time, keeping the remaining truffles chilled before being dipped. *When rolling truffles, wet hands slightly to prevent sticking.
