*Thank you Vital Proteins for sponsoring today’s post so I could make these blueberry truffles. As always, all opinions are mine.*
Most of my Summer was spent PERFECTING this healthy chocolate blueberry truffles recipe and it was absolutely worth it.
People usually wonder: Are truffles healthy for you? Can you make healthy truffles without dates?
And the answer is a big YES!
These RAW healthy truffles are made by combining fresh blueberries, oats, coconut oil, honey and some collagen peptides.
Then, they are dipped in dark chocolate and made PRETTY by drizzling some blue chocolate…hehehe.
These fruity truffles are perfect for Summer time and bursting with fruity blueberry flavors.
Also, did you know that the chocolate and blueberry flavor combination totally ROCKS?!?!
If you have made my blueberry lime chocolate clusters before, you know what I mean!
I know that some of you are probably thinking these should be called energy balls or energy bites.
But honestly, they were round, dipped in chocolate and looked like MOCK truffles…heheh.
They are great as a snack, dessert or any time you want to INDULGE in something fudgy, fruity and choco-licious!
Absolutely GUILT FREE!
Here are some important TIPS to remember, when making raw healthy truffles:
- Unlike traditional truffles, these truffles need to be chilled overnight or at least 6 hours. That makes the mixture firm and easier to handle and most importantly, it’s easier to roll into balls.
- Also, unlike regular truffles, these chocolate blueberry truffles have a bit of a texture but they still taste INCREDIBLE!
- You must store leftover truffles in the fridge or else they will start melting. That’s because they have coconut oil, which becomes liquid at room temperature.
- The great thing about this chocolate blueberry truffles recipe is that you can alter the quantity of ingredients to suit your preference. Don’t like oats? Use more coconut instead. Don’t like honey? Use molasses as a sweetener. Don’t like dark chocolate? Use milk chocolate or semi-sweet chocolate or even white chocolate.
- Wearing disposable plastic gloves makes it easier to roll the mixture into balls. It’s not as sticky or messy!
- I used a hand-held blender to mix all the ingredients together but you can easily use a food processor too.
I did a video tutorial for this recipe to help your follow along.

How many grams of protein does this add. And how many r in the collagen mixture?
I don’t really know how to calculate that… Sorry! :S
If I don’t have protein powder, can I make it without? Thanks!
Yes, you can omit it.
