Healthy Chocolate Truffles recipe made with just 4 healthy ingredients.
(Gluten-Free, Low Sugar, Refined Sugar-Free, Dairy-Free)
Healthy Chocolate Truffles. Decadent, yet so healthy you can eat these babies for breakfast. Yes, it’s no bake chocolaty goodness coming to you today.
These are so chocolaty a better name for them would be Death by Double Dark Chocolate Truffles. Just take a moment to appreciate how much chocolaty goodness that really means.
A lot my friends, a lot.
To make these even more of a homerun for a snack, breakfast, dessert, or uhh, dinner? They are dairy-free, low-calorie, refined sugar-free, and low-sugar.
BAM! Looks like dinner my friends–I mean dessert–or maybe breakfast. Meh, who cares when we eat them; they are delicious, chocolate explosion heaven and they belong in your tummy, like now.
It’s no secret, I love tiny little no bake truffles with all my heart. Every morning, before I work out, I am torn between mint chocolate chip truffles and almond chocolate chip truffles.
Everyday I’m trufflin’.
It’s a strong possibility that song goes through my head every morning… very possible.
Are these normal chocolate truffles? No, they are cute tiny chocolate balls with delicious ingredients, covered with your oh-so-favorite toppings.
My favorite topping, of course, is chocolate. R wanted to try coconut. Since I am allergic to coconut, well, we’ll just have to take R’s word for it that they are delicious.
I can assure you that the chocolate chip truffles were chocolate heaven at its chocolaty finest.
Oh, I should also mention that in addition to being refined sugar-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, and low-sugar, making these truffles requires just one bowl and 4-ingredients.
Oh. My. Word.
Yeah, you have no excuse not to start making these–like now.
Today is Halloween and perhaps you’ll have buckets of candy by the end of the night. Or, if you’re more like me, when you shut down the house, turn off the lights, and watch Hocus Pocus, you’ll need yourself a chocolaty snack.
Hocus Pocus = Best Halloween Movie Ever.
Halloween Trick or Treaters. Why, they may be so adorable to hand out candy to, but holidays just don’t do much for me.
So, if you’re a Halloween Scrooge, take my word for it. Make yourself something delicious (Dark Chocolate Truffles, a.k.a. Death by Double Dark Chocolate Truffles), cuddle under a fuzzy blanket, and watch Hocus Pocus. That’s how I roll.
I cannot wait to try this recipe! It looks divine! In our family, I am always searching for new things to try and when there are not a lot of ingredients, my options can increase which is a major bonus. These look absolute amazing and I am sure it will become a popular favorite within our family in no time. I am now looking forward to seeing what other recipes you have on your site since it can increase not only treats like this one for my family, but it will also provide an opportunity to provide unique gift add-ins for different occasions as well. Thank you so much for sharing this!
Am I able to use all purpose flour or whole wheat flour instead of oat flour? I know that using either will not make it a gluten-free recipe anymore, but none of the groceries near me carry oat flour and I do not have a blender or food processor. I’d really like to make these though!
Yes Megan you can definitely use normal flour if you don’t need to be gluten-free. I’d advise the whole wheat flour as it has more the consistency of oat flour than AP flour – However, I do think AP flour would work also. I’d love to hear how they turned out! 🙂
Lindsay, my truffles didn’t turn out as nicely as yours. I think it’s because I used whole wheat flour instead of oat flour. This was fun to try, though. Thanks again!
Oh no I’m so sorry to hear that Megan! 🙁
Thank you for coming back and sharing though, it is good for others to know. Hope you have a lovely New Year!
can i use another gf flour? i’m gf but allergic to oats and i’d like to make this. thanks.
I haven’t tested this recipe with other gf flours but I have a suspicion that chickpea flour would do well.

I am excited to try these. What kind of chocolate chips did you use?
Our favorite personally is Enjoy Life’s mini chocolate chips but you can use any chocolate chip you wish for this recipe
This recipe needs some revisions. We’re told to “roll mixture into 12 rolls” but it never states when to make them into balls as per the serving size which measures it as a “ball”. It doesn’t even say what size the truffle should be rolled into (i.e. tablespoon/teaspoon). Somewhere in the recipe it should mention a step of rolling it in a coating (i.e. cocoa powder, nuts, sprinkles, chocolate chips).
Off the bat it’s basically just mix these items together, roll it (which doesn’t mean “roll into a ball” you could roll it into a hotdog shape and still be following the directions of the recipe).
With positive reviews it shows that people enjoy the recipe, but the “creator” of said recipe should take a little extra time to dummy-proof what they create. This is like directions for someone who needs a small reminder, not for someone who is newly coming into making food.
The recipe does say to roll mixture into 12 rolls & by looking at the pictures provided I see they are round, like a ball. Also, it states in the “story” before the recipe – “Are these normal chocolate truffles? No, they are cute tiny chocolate balls with delicious ingredients, covered with your oh-so-favorite toppings.”
After you roll them into balls you roll them through sprinkles, chocolate chips or any other type of topping you choose, if any. You can roll them into any number of balls – it doesn’t have to be 12; you can make them smaller or larger – baker’s choice.
