5 Ingredient Healthy Ferrero Rocher Truffles

Print

Many people think that eating healthy and wholesome food is only to do with looking good and being at a good weight. But for me it is to do with feeling good on the inside and eating food that nourish the body. Making delicious desserts that taste just as good as junk food but that make you also feel good is amazing.
These Ferrero Rocher truffles are full of raw cacao, good fats and no sugar. They’re a healthy and indulgent treat with all the flavour and texture of the traditional Ferrero Rocher Truffles without all the processed ingredients and refined sugars.

Cacao powder is the purest form of chocolate on planet earth and can be considered a superfood offering a wealth of antioxidants and essential vitamins of Group B and E and minerals (magnesium, calcium, sulfur, zinc, iron, copper, potassium, and manganese), polyphenols called flavonoids with antioxidant properties, essential heart-healthy fat, protein and fiber. These nutrients have been linked to a number of health benefits: lower blood pressure, promote cardiovascular function, neutralize free radicals due to the high levels of antioxidants, improve digestion, enhance physical and mental well-being by stimulating hormones such as endorphins that increase serotonin (this works as a a libido-booster).

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

Making anything from scratch, including desserts, is always a good option if you want to feel good about what you're putting into your body. Where else could you find Ferrero-Rocher-like raw chocolates with only 5 ingredients other than in your own kitchen? These raw truffles are nutrient dense and full of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. The best part is each one is only 80 calories, so you don't need to worry if just one isn't enough-go ahead and grab another one to satisfy your sweet tooth!

    Recipe sounds fantastic but you talk about using roasted hazelnuts. Can you tell us what temperature you roasted them at and for how long.

    The ingredient list calls for vanilla extract. The directions say vanilla powder. Which one is it? I have both.

    In step two you mention vanilla powder but I do not see it on the ingredient list. It seems like something is missing. Can you re check ingredients and let me know please.

    just made these- super easy to make, and tastes very similar to FR. thanks for this recipe i will definitely use again. i may try a variation using macadamia nuts and coating truffles in cacao powder.

    I would love to make these, but wanted to check the ingredient amounts first. It calls for 1/2c hazelnuts. Could that be an error? it seem unlikely that amount would yield 18 truffles with a nut in each center.
    Thanks!

    When I was a kid, I used to take spoonfuls of nutella and put them in the freezer. Delish, but not so great for you… these taste JUST like that, but actually healthy!

    So when I tried these they kinda fell apart a little. So I made them again using just one tablespoon of coconut oil, and that totally worked! I think they would even be awesome as little halloween treats so kids can eat “candy” that’s GOOD for them.

    I was hesitant at first because I was like – could they really be that easy? and still taste good? SO I made these last weekend for a family picnic and couldn’t believe how easy and tasty they were. The flavors of the hazelnut and chocolate really pop! I liked them slightly warm and gooey…the kids kept asking for more! Definitely making again!
