Simple And Quick Cake Truffles
If you are like the average person who doesn’t have a lot of time to make healthy snacks and treats, then this recipe is for you.
Making recipes that are simple and quick is my favorite!
This entire recipe takes literally 5 minutes or less to make.
You could absolutely eat it as soon as it is all mixed together, but I highly recommend you put the truffles in the refrigerator for 10-15 minutes, just to firm up a bit.
They are delicious when cold and firm…and refrigerated truffles seem to take away some of the “grit” that almond flour tends to have.
How Much Protein Is In These Truffles?
There are only about 2.5 grams of protein in each truffle, so if you are having it as a snack, go ahead and have a cup of collagen coffee or hard boiled egg white to get more protein in your snack.
Low Carb Sweetener Substitutes
This recipe calls for Trim Healthy Mama Gentle Sweet, which is just a mixture of xylitol, erythritol and stevia. I make my own Gentle Sweet without the xylitol and use it in recipes that call for Gentle Sweet.
If you do not have these sweeteners, you can use your favorite low carb sweetener…just be sure that it measures like 2 Tablespoons of sugar for this particular recipe.
For example, if you use Monkfruit classic sweetener, you would use 2 Tablespoons, but if you use Super Sweet, you’ll need about a 1/2 Tablespoon since it is much sweeter than Gentle Sweet.
Can I Use Baking Blend Instead Of Almond Flour?
THM baking blend contains coconut flour which can make your goodies dry if you use too much.
You can play around with baking blend and even cut the recipe in half while you’re experimenting.
Just remember that these truffles will firm up in the fridge, so the batter may seem very moist after mixing. That’s perfectly fine.
Before forming the mixture into balls, put the bowl of batter into the fridge to solidify just a bit…it is easier to scoop out Tablespoon portions after it’s been chilled for a few minutes.
Of course, no one is stopping you from eating the batter straight from the bowl after it’s been chilled!
