Peanut Free Cookie Dough Truffles
As many of you all ready know, my youngest son has these allergies and my oldest has a peanut allergy. It's very easy to sub the peanut butter in these truffles! I've successfully made these with sunflower seed butter and both versions are incredibly tasty!
Creating recipes that can accommodate many of us with allergies and those of us who choose to eat sugar-free and low carb for health reasons, is what I strive for here. Not only is my priority sugar-free recipes, but also I try to make them as low carb as I can and gluten free since this how I eat on a daily basis and what makes my body feel at it's best.
My family ate these truffles up in a matter of days! I think they will be a new favorite of yours as well!
Sugar-Free Low Carb Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Truffles
- You can replace the almond milk with any milk of choice.
- If you prefer not to use Swerve, replace with a sweetener of choice and also eliminate the liquid stevia if using maple syrup or honey.
- If you don't have chocolate liquid stevia for the outer chocolate coating you can use clear or vanilla stevia or even use a favorite candy bar you like. Using an all ready sweetened candy bar, like sugar-free Lily's Sweets with stevia in it will still increase the nutrition info here.
