Not going to lie; when I first made this recipe, I thought it was a total failure! I was recipe testing for a super fudgy brownie. I got the consistency I wanted, but they fell apart. Instead of composting them, I made them into delicious brownie truffles!
What you’ll love about brownie truffles is the taste. You won’t even know that it is paleo-friendly, which is perfect for the holidays! I don’t know about you, but I always pack my own desserts. It makes life so much easier for you, but also whoever is hosting the party.
The brownie truffles are packed with antioxidants from the cacao powder and naturally sweetened with maple syrup! They’re super simple to make and can easily be made in advance. I recommend storing them in the freezer as they taste 10x better and will firm up a bit.
I truly hope you love these truffles as much as I do! When I have them in the house, I can’t control myself…Let’s dig into the recipe! Some other chocolate desserts you’ll are some double chocolate cookies or some fudgy brownies!
Nutella Brownie Truffles
- 1 cup Pumpkin Puree

- Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a 9 by 9 pan.
- Mix all the ingredients until well combined.
- Pour into the pan and bake for 20-30 minutes.
- Once cooled enough to touch, store in the freezer until firm.
- Scoop out 2 tbsp measurements and roll into balls, and roll into the topping of choice.

I highly recommend these for all your holiday gatherings for those with or without food allergies. They won’t be able to tell that they’re paleo (trust me on this)!
