Cherry Almond Chip Truffles

Prep Notes

The delicate sweetness of cherries & almonds combines nicely with the welcome crunch of cacao nibs. Dipped
in a rich chocolate coating makes these truffle a decadent chewy treat!


1 cup almond butter
1/3 cup brown rice syrup
1/3 cup pure maple syrup
1 1/4 cups brown rice cereal (I use Erewhon Crispy Brown Rice Gluten Free)
1 1/4 cup almond flour
1/2 cup dried cherries, chopped
1/4 cup cacao nibs
1/4 tsp pure almond extract
1 (10oz) package Gluten & dairy free chocolate chips (I use Enjoy Life)
1-2tsp coconut oil


In the work bowl of a food processor combine almond butter, brown rice syrup & maple syrup. Blend until smooth. Add rice cereal, pulse a few times. Add almond flour, pulse a few times until mixed. Add chopped dried cherries & cacao nibs & almond extract, pulse until well incorporated, stop periodically and mix in with a spatula. Pulse on high for a few seconds to finish it off.

Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment or wax paper. Roll into small balls. Freeze until firm.

Melt chocolate chips & coconut oil in a double boiler on the stovetop over low heat, or melt in a microwave safe bowl in 30 second increments until melted. Dip in melted chocolate and chill until firm.

Makes about 55 truffles, depending on the size they’re made.
