Since treats (especially those with a helping of chocolate) are pretty much "required eating" this weekend, the menu calls for something quick, low-mess, low-fuss and no-shopping required. When we had a few scraggly, solid-brown bananas hanging out on the counter for a little longer than the heat deemed worthy, I knew I had to get rid of them one way or another. What can I say, the cheap side of me always outweighs the complete couch potato side! I decided to capitalize on the natural sweet, nutty flavour of ground tigernuts in place of almonds or oats, which also added a boost of fibre, iron, magnesium and electrolytes to the "dough"- and with no nuts, no added sugar and no grain flours it was a treat I felt practically virtuous serving to my family, while enjoying the rich, cookie-dough flavour inside the dark chocolate shell. I can't imagine not finding the original recipe on Healthy Sweet Eats now!

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles
1 large, over-ripe banana, mashed well
1 tbsp coconut oil
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
½ tsp butter flavouring, optional
¼ tsp liquid stevia
pinch fine salt
2 ½ tbsp coconut flour
2 ½ tbsp tigernut flour
2 tbsp mini chocolate chips (I used stevia sweetened chopped dark chocolate but found these chips sweetened with erythritol and stevia)
dark chocolate, melted, for coating (not included in NI - I used stevia sweetened dark chocolate)
- Mash the banana, coconut oil, vanilla, stevia, salt and nutmeg together in a medium bowl.
- Stir in the flour and ground tigernuts until completely combined, and then mix in the mini chocolate chips.
- Roll the dough into 12 balls and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
- Freeze for at least 1 hour.
- Dip the frozen truffles in the melted chocolate and place them on a lined cookie sheet until set
