Ingredients And Substitutions
These are the main ingredients and substitutions for Pumpkin Pie Truffles. Scroll down to the recipe card for a full list of ingredients and instructions.
To keep this recipe nut free, I used granola butter. However, you can also use a seed butter like sunflower seed butter or any other nut butter such as almond or cashew butter.
Use pumpkin puree and not pumpkin pie filling.
Pure Maple syrup is a great sweetener since it’s unrefined. However, you can also use honey or agave.
Coconut flour is a great grain free flour option and adds a sweet, yet subtle flavor. Feel free to use oat flour or almond flour in replace, however, it’s not a 1:1 swap for coconut flour so you will need more than what is written for coconut flour.
These truffles are loaded with pumpkin pie spice and cinnamon for added pumpkin flavoring.
You can use dark or white chocolate for the coating. If you are vegan make sure you use a dairy free and vegan chocolate, otherwise, any kind will work.
How To Make
ONE: In a medium bowl, combine the granola butter, pumpkin puree and maple syrup and mix until well incorporated.
TWO: Add in the coconut flour, pumpkin pie spice and cinnamon last and mix with a rubber spatula.
THREE: Using a cookie scoop, scoop the dough and roll into a ball with the palm of your hands and then place on a baking sheet that’s lined with parchment paper.
FOUR: Melt white chocolate in the microwave or on a double broil with a touch of coconut oil. Then, dip and coat each truffle in the white chocolate before returning to the baking sheet that’s line with parchment paper. Place in the freezer for roughly 15 minutes to full harden. Remove and enjoy!
Tips And Tricks
