Hey loves! Hope you’re all having a fun weekend and getting ready to have a fun Halloween weekend.
Today I have a perfect last minute that for you to try! If you saw my last post for the pumpkin cookie dough, this recipe is just another example all the many things you can make with it!
I met my friend Christine a few days ago to make these truffles for her youtube channel (which you should totally check out if you’re looking for some epic workouts!) and these truffles turned out SO AMAZING! By the time we were done with the video half recipe was already gone! They are super easy to make and if you want to watch the recipe video you will find it on her channel next week.
This recipe is really one of my favorite ones, it is so light compared to other cookie dough recipes, since we’re using pumpkin as the base, but so flavorful and it has the perfect amount of sweetness you need. Plus, it is high protein! I love using Livwell protein powders on my recipes, they are one of my favorite companies when it comes to protein powders, or I might even say they are actually my favorite! Their vanilla protein powder is insanely delicious, it has a beautiful aroma and doesn’t give you any weird aftertaste many protein powders have, Christine loved it too and it is truly what makes the cookie dough even better!
Gastrawnomica’s Chocolate Covered COOKIE DOUGH Truffles!
High protein, low fat, low glycemic index, paleo, gluten/oil free
1 pumpkin cookie dough recipe (we doubled the recipe)
1/3 cup vegan chocolate chips
Almond/soy milk if needed
Toppings of choice
First step is to prepare the cookie dough. Once ready, leave in the freezer for 10 minutes to make it firm. Remove and make your round balls. Freeze again for 10-15 minutes. While the cookie dough is in the freezer, start melting your chocolate chips, we did it on a double boiler. The vegan chocolate chips we used were from the brand Enjoy Life, seems like they are not as fatty as other brands so we added a bit of soy milk until we had a super smooth and creamy consistency of melted chocolate. Make sure your heat is not too high or you’ll burn the chocolate.
Start dipping all your truffles in the chocolate until well covered. Put on a plate and freeze for 25-30 minutes until firm. We also made some squares and topped with the remaining chocolate we had.
Once ready, serve on a tray and top with your favorite toppings. We used goji berries and a sprinkle of sifted coconut for the truffles.
COOKIE DOUGH TRUFFLES = HAPPINESS ♥
