Dark Chocolate Raspberry Truffles (Keto, Paleo, Vegan)

Dark Chocolate Raspberry Truffles are a blend of fresh tangy berries and a fudgy homemade chocolate rolled into a blissful bite size treat! (Keto, Paleo, Vegan friendly. Sugar-free, dairy-free & gluten-free)Dark Chocolate Raspberry Truffles (Keto, Paleo, Vegan) PrettyPies.com

DECADENT Truffles

Fudgy dark chocolate “dough” + juicy, tart raspberries + bits of buttery soft & crunchy nuts in each bite!

In a shell of dark chocolate, or finely shredded coconut, or a crisp “sugar” coating to really take it over the top!

Quick & EASY to make with simple ingredients, but they look super fancy. “You made TRUFFLES? Impressive!” <- that’s what you’re gonna hear. I almost guarantee it.

For Every Occasion

These scrumptious bites are great to have on hand for a quick snack, healthy little dessert, or pre/post workout fuel. They’re even wholesome enough for breakfast.

Ideal for entertaining & parties since they keep at room temp, and perfect for romance (hello Valentine’s Day!) 

But they also pack well in a lunchbox for a special treat for your kiddos. (My kids LOVE them)

Ready to eat in 10 Minutes (or less!)

Pulse pulse in a food processor. So simple!

Add the remaining nuts & berries at the end to give them a little bit of crunch and texture! *I love love LOVE the added bits of buttery soft walnuts inside!*

Scoop it. Freeze it.

Roll it. Coat it.

SAVOR IT.

5 Main Ingredients

These are simple, basic ingredients I almost always have on hand:

  1. walnuts (or another soft nut, such as pecans or cashews)
  2. raspberries
  3. cacao powder
  4. almond butter (see how to easily make homemade almond butter here)
  5. Lakanto monkfruit (or your favorite sweetener)

This recipe is like my Healthy No-Bake Brownie Bites recipe with raspberries and a coating of chocolate! So they’re super fudgy with a tangy juicy twist! YUM.

Your Choice of Coating

  • Dark Chocolate (sugar-free or homemade using monkfruit for keto)
  • Dessicated coconut
  • Lakanto classic monkfruit granules (look and tastes like sugar!)
  • or no coating! They’re just as delicious if you leave ’em bare 🙂

Naturally Sweetened

I’m a BIG fan of using natural sweeteners in my desserts and I’ve recently fallen in LOVE with monkfruit (and YES, it’s a real fruit grown in Asia). It has such a pure, clean flavor – very much just like real sugar – no bitter aftertaste. And it has zero carbs!

I used just a pinch of Lakanto pure monkfruit extract in these, but if you don’t have it, you can sub any one of these:

  • 2 Tbs Lakanto powdered monkfruit (I blend the classic granules in a blender to make my own powdered “sugar”)
  • Pinch of pure stevia powder
  • 15 drops Lakanto liquid monkfruit drops <– save an extra 25% off with this link
  • 20 drops Sweet Leaf stevia drops
  • 2 Tbs Powdered coconut sugar (for non low-carb/keto)
  • 1/2 cup Medjool dates (for non low-carb/keto)

I always *always* remind people to TASTE as you go 🙂 If it’s not sweet enough, add more sweetener! This recipe is flexible and customizable to YOUR personal preferences.

    I made these before and these truffles are amazing! Even blackberries work, but raspberries are the best.
    I need to make them for a party, however I forgot how many the recipe makes lol. I know you say 10 servings, but is that two truffles per servings? How many truffles does it make? Thank you!
