Indulgent cacao truffles with black beans – only 5 ingredients needed!
Evening babes, are you ready for my newest obsession? These cacao truffles are seriously addictive, they are so delicious and taste super indulgent, but are made with all healthy ingredients and the texture is just amazing – they pretty much just melt in your mouth, YUM!
I know the whole black bean thing might sound a bit weird, but you cannot taste them at all – a lot of healthified recipes says that you can’t taste that weird ingredient and then you totally can, but that is not the case here, they just taste super sweet and dessert-like, promise! ;) Other than giving the truffles the perfect texture, the black beans also adds extra protein and fibre + key nutrients like copper, manganese, vitamin B1, phosphorus, molybdenum, magnesium and iron.
And if you are still not convinced about the black beans, then a simple google search will show you just how popular an ingredient they are in healthy desserts. I mean, that many recipes can’t get it wrong, right?! I was a bit skeptical at first, but after trying different yummy treats with black beans, then I just had to jump on the black bean bandwagon with these yummy truffles. I have to say that I can’t really take any credit for the idea though, I simply tried to recreate some yummy black bean truffles that I tried in LA + I am far from the first food blogger to share a recipe for this kind of treat, but they were just too good to not add to the blog, I hope you will love them as much as I do ♥
If you still find the whole black bean thing a bit too odd for your taste, then I can recommend giving these chocolate truffles with avocado a try instead – they are SO delicious! ♥
