What makes Almond Joy Truffles a good choice for a healthy snack?
Almond joy truffles are a healthy treat made with plant-based iand natural ingredients. They offer a good choice for a healthy snack because they are low in calories and fat with a good source of fiber and protein. You can easily adjust its sweetness if you make your sweetened condensed milk from scratch or use dark chocolate instead of the semi-sweet version. Also, since almond joy truffles are vegan, they are an ideal snack for those looking for a healthy alternative that is also plant-based and will not be as bad for you.
Recipe changes are always a little bit of an experiment. Sometimes you can easily substitute one type of ingredient for another or leave it out altogether. Coconut flakes are sometimes hard to find, Don’t worry; you can replace them with desiccated coconut, which is readily available in any Asian or baking store. Sweetened condensed milk also comes in a vegan option, but if you want to make your own, you can swap it out with one can of full-fat coconut milk and ⅓ cup of maple syrup or sugar. You can adjust the sugar level based on your preference to make it a less sweet version. All you have to do is simmer over low heat until it becomes thick and somewhat off-white in color.
If you want to add more layers of flavor and texture to your recipes, why not experiment with other alternatives? Though almonds are the ingredient of choice in this recipe, you can easily replace that with any other type of nuts you love. We like pecans, walnuts, and sometimes pistachios. Don’t be afraid to experiment with different flavors. You might just find your new favorite amazing flavor!
Almond Joy Truffles
- 3 cups coconut flakes unsweetened
- 1 cup sweetened condensed milk store-bought, vegan
- 24 pcs whole natural almonds roasted
- 24 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips vegan
- Line a large cookie sheet with wax or parchment paper. A silicone mat can also be used as an alternative.
- Combine coconut flakes and vegan-sweetened condensed milk in a medium mixing bowl. When pressed together, the mixture should retain its shape.
- If it doesn't hold its shape, add a tablespoon of condensed milk at a time until it does.
- Scoop 1.5 tablespoons of the coconut mixture, shape it into balls, and place them on your prepared cookie sheet. Place one almond on top of each pile.
- Place the mounds in the refrigerator until firm for about 30-minutes or in the freezer for faster cooling time.
- Melt chocolate using a large microwave-safe bowl according to package directions until just melted. Avoid overheating.
- Using a spoon, gently pour melted chocolate over the truffle. Lift the truffle out of the chocolate with a fork and allow any excess chocolate to drain back into the chocolate bowl.
- To help remove extra chocolate, lightly tap it against the side of the bowl. Allow the truffles at room temperature to let the chocolate harden. Return the truffles to the lined tray.
- Serve these lovely truffles immediately. For leftovers, store them inside the refrigerator in an airtight container to retain their freshness.
