Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles [Gluten Free, Refined Sugar Free]

 

 

Looking for a sweet treat for you lovies on Valentine’s day?? This is not only sweet, it is much healthier than anything you can buy at a store.

No it’s certainly not low in calories or fat, but it is refined sugar free and gluten free!

A little indulgence for Valentine’s Day is needed, don’t you think?

 

I’ve made them tree times now until I finally got the texture and taste just right. I adapted my Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Chocolate Cake recipe for the idea of the cookie dough. It is JUST perfect now, JUST perfect!

I’ve made them with oat flour and King Arthur Gluten Free Flour and we liked the King Arthur better. I’ve also made them with regular honey and creamed honey which is slightly thicker. The creamed honey was found at Whole Foods Market and although expensive provides a nice thick texture which gives the dough a bit more firmness when rolling.

 

 

They don’t have to be perfect looking and you can even roll them smaller if you want to get more than 12, but this is what I went with, just big enough!

 

 Notes on Chocolate Chips:

  • You can use whatever chocolate chips you like. For allergy friendly, Enjoy Life is Nut, Soy & Dairy Free. I found sugar free chocolate chips by the brand Lily’s sweetened with stevia at Whole Foods. A reader mentioned that Grain Sweetened chocolate chips have been found at the Atkin’s store online.
