  • 1 15 oz can black beans , drained and rinsed
  • 1 1/2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp mocha protein powder (I use Vega Brand)
  • 1 tsp espresso powder
  • 5 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 16 oz package dark chocolate chips


  1. Place all of the ingredients besides the cocoa, protein powder and espresso in a food processor and process until combined.

  2. Using a spatula, scrape mixture into a medium sized bowl and add cocoa powder, protein powder and espresso. Mix with spatula until fully combined.

  3. Place mixture in the freezer until somewhat firm, about 20 minutes.

  4. Roll mixture into 1" balls (about 1 tbsp worth) and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

  5. Place back in the freezer to chill for 30 minutes.

  6. Melt dark chocolate in the microwave or broiler style. Transfer into a deep cup or bowl for easy dipping.

  7.  One by one, use two spoons or forks to hold the truffle and dip into melted chocolate. Place on wax or parchment paper to set.

  8. Keep refrigerated and ENJOY!
