Delicious Vegan Chocolate Truffles with Ginger and Sweet Chili Pistachios

By Gracie Carroll

Recipe testing is a funny thing. Sometimes you can spend hours developing a new idea, only to discover that it just doesn’t work. On the contrary, there are times when you come up with something that stops you in your tracks and makes you go, “WOW” and “OMG!!” as you start jumping for joy. This is one of those recipes that I completely fell in love with as soon as I had that wonderful first bite.

To be honest, my palate is more savoury than sweet, and I have a total addiction to extremely spicy foods which I can only assume comes from my Korean heritage. Although I do love to bake, I don’t often eat much of any desserts or baked goods I create, and my preferred choice in sweets is always a piece (or two) of great dark chocolate.

When I recently made a batch of my favourite Gluten Free No Bake Energy Balls with Spirulina, I started thinking about how I could make a chocolate version that would still be just as healthy. When I started flipping through some of my favourite healthy cookbooks for inspiration, I came across Gwyneth Paltrow‘s Chocolate Truffles recipe in her latest cookbook, It’s All Easy, and it instantly sparked ideas for how I could make it my own.

Since I love when dark chocolate is paired with ginger or chilli flakes, I wanted to create a version of healthy homemade truffles that have a kick to them. The result? These incredibly delicious and super easy to make Vegan Chocolate Truffles with Ginger and Sweet Chilli Pistachios! See below for how to make them.
