Vegan Chocolate Banana Truffles with Coconut Flour

These Vegan Chocolate Banana Truffles melt in the mouth, are super healthy and have the perfect balance between the chocolate, banana and coconut taste.

This vegan amazing dessert requires no refined sugar, only the sweetness of the bananas.

The coconut taste arrives from the flour instead of shredded coconut, so you have the flavour without the fat and the cocoa is unsweetened and abines perfectly with the banana.

And the best thing about this healthy truffles? It ONLY requires those 3 ingredients.

The Ingredients

banana, coconut flour and cocoa to make vegan chocolate banana truffles
  • Banana: any variety. Just bare in mind that all the sweetness of the truffles will come from them. I always go for the ones that are already so ripe that break when I peel them.
  • Coconut Flour: I use the flour instead of shredded to make the dessert oil-free and they hold better the texture because are finer and drier. (a bit more info about the flour from the Healthline blog)
  • Cocoa: unsweetened and without any milk added, pure cocoa.

OPTIONALS

To cover the truffles:

  • Shredded Coconut
  • Crushed Nuts
  • Cocoa Powder
  • Orange Zest (mixed with the coconut or cocoa)
  • Dark Chocolate sprinkles

To add a pinch in the truffles mixture:

  • Cinnamon Powder
  • Vanilla Extract
  • Nutmeg Powder
  • Sugar or Sweetener (if you must)

These Vegan Chocolate Truffles are healthy and have the perfect balance between the chocolate, banana and coconut taste. Only 3 ingredients.

Ingredients

  • 9,3 oz ripe Bananas, about 2 big ones, without the peel

  • 2 1/2 to 5 tablespoons Coconut Flour (depending on the bananas)

  • 2 tablespoons Cocoa, a bit more to cover the truffles

Directions

  • Peel the bananas and cut in halves. Steam them for about 5 minutes, until they’re very soft. The time will depend on how ripe they are.
  • Blend or use a hand-mixer to reduce the bananas to liquid.
  • Transfer to a bowl, add the cocoa and mix well.
  • Start by adding 2 1/2 tablespoons of coconut flour, always mixing. The amount will depend on how ripe are your bananas. The older they are more flour will be needed. There’s a short video above showing the consistency we are aiming for.
  • Take the mixture to the fridge for 10 minutes and you are ready to roll the truffles.
  • Roll them over cocoa powder, shredded coconut or any type of crushed nuts.
  • Take them to the fridge for at least 1 hour before serving.

Notes

  • Please check the section The Ingredients for possible substitutions.
  • The truffles can be kept in the fridge
