Hi! I came down with little cold yesterday, so I couldn’t finish writing this recipe. But I chugged NyQuil and ate cough drops like candy so now I’m feeling much better. I even went on a 14 mile bike ride this morning. Yay.

I have to tell you that my biggest goal has been to blog on a more frequent basis, thus I spent this past weekend developing three new recipes. And of course, pumpkin season is coming… you know what that means. PUMPKIN EVERYTHING. Are you excited? I am.

But first, some healthy truffles for you.

Yes! The black beans are back. They’re hiding in these fudgy chocolate bites. And they’re AWESOME.

Ummmm please don’t stare at your screen like that. Don’t question the deliciousness! These are addicting! In all seriousness, if you liked my black bean brownies or my chickpea blondies, then I’m sure you’ll LOVE these.

Check out this fun video I made:

So what else is hiding in the truffles besides the beans? Good quality cocoa powder, coconut oil (or olive), a touch of maple syrup, and chocolate protein powder if you’d like a protein boost. I’ve included directions for both versions. Just remember that if you want to keep the truffles vegan, then simply use a vegan chocolate protein powder such as Vega.
