3 ingredient cookie dough truffles that taste and feel just like a decadent dessert but are made with NO grains, oil, eggs, or refined sugars. They’re gluten-free, vegan, and a healthy and delicious way to satisfy those chocolate cravings!
The best things in life are
free covered in chocolate…
… and [chocolate] sprinkles…
… and taste like dessert when they’re actually made with only a few (read: 3) super healthy ingredients. Meaning that these 3 ingredient cookie dough truffles are basically one of the best things in life…
Especially since they’re so crazy easy to make. Like, literally 3 ingredients.
First, dates*. Nature’s caramel and the perfect sweetener. Not only because they help hold the base of these truffles together, but because they help keep them refined-sugar-free and add a nice touch of fibre and minerals. It’s the little things.
Next, almond flour*. I usually make my bites with ground oats, but I wanted to try to keep these grain-free so I went the almond flour route… and it kind of knocked my socks right off. I don’t know the magic behind it, but I always find that almond flour adds a slight buttery taste to whatever I use it in, without having to actually use any butter – perfect for when you want something to taste like cookie dough.
And finally, chocolate*… because, like I mentioned earlier, the best things in life are covered in chocolate and I hope you love these particular things.

- Add the dates and almond flour to the bowl of a food processor or high-speed blender and process on high until they have fully combined to form a sticky dough. The mixture should stick together easily when pressed without being overly sticky. If you're having trouble getting it to stick, add a tablespoon (15 ml) of almond milk until the right texture is reached.
- Using a tablespoon, roll the dough between your hands to form individual balls. Set them aside on a plate lined with parchment paper, and repeat with the remaining dough.
- To prepare the chocolate coating, melt the chocolate in the microwave or over a double broiler, stirring periodically to ensure no clumps remain. Using a toothpick, dip each ball into the melted chocolate, gently tapping the side of the bowl to remove any excess. Place back onto the parchment-lined baking sheet and repeat until all truffles have been coated. Sprinkle with toppings, if desired.
- Refrigerate for ~15 minutes, or until the chocolate has set. Store the truffles in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
