Choices of Sticky Sweeteners
Monk fruit sweetened maple syrup is my sticky sweetener of choice, as it is keto-friendly and sugar-free.
Pure maple syrup will work, but this is only suitable for those following a vegan and paleo diet.
Coconut Flour & alternatives
- Coconut flour is key in order to help form the truffle center, along with allowing it to hold its shape.
- Another alternative is Blanched almond flour will work, but be sure to double the amount, at a minimum. Sometimes, you may even need to add even more.
Healthy Chocolate Chips
The chocolate coating allows these keto chocolate truffles to be stable at room temperature, along with easier ways to use them as edible gifts.
Following are the best options to avail:
- Keto chocolate chips– Prefer to use stevia-sweetened chocolate chips. Because these chocolate chips are low carb, sugar-free and don’t have a bitter aftertaste.
- Paleo vegan chocolate chips– Enjoy Life chocolate chips are dairy-free and refined sugar-free, and melt beautifully.
- Homemade keto, vegan and paleo chocolate– You can easily make your own homemade chocolate coating. Simply melt a 100% unsweetened chocolate bar and add liquid stevia, to taste.
