From Grace:

The fudgiest bites that only FEEL indulgent!

If I’m being completely honest, I hit a huge wall when planning out a recipe for this blog. I had chocolate and peanut butter and dessert in my head – but zero direction.

How am I supposed to make something with collagen? Will the texture be compromised? How can I make this easy to execute for even the busiest of people?

But then I remembered a recipe I tested in the past for homemade chickpea cookie dough that took literally 6 ingredients and 10 minutes to make in the food processor. So, I threw caution to the wind and decided to blend chickpeas, chocolate collagen, peanut butter, some sugar, flour, and cocoa powder in a blender; folded in some crushed peanuts and chocolate chunks for texture, formed the dough into balls, let them chill for a few hours, and kept my fingers crossed.

The result upon taking a bite of the chilled dough ball was the absolute fudgiest, decadent, chocolate treat I’ve ever made in my career as a food blogger. My mind was absolutely blown! I managed to create a protein and fiber-packed chocolate truffle WITHOUT compromising on taste.

These truffles are incredibly versatile too! Not into nuts? No biggie! Just replace the nut butter with sunflower butter, cookie butter or even tahini. Then, add your favorite fillings–dried fruit, coconut, seeds, or even crushed cookies! Get creative and create your ideal (healthier) box of chocolates!
