Pumpkin Spice Truffles

It's that time of the year for pumpkin everything. It took me a minute to hop on the pumpkin train, but I'm here now. I'm going to be honest, the filling of these pumpkin truffles legitimately tastes like a pumpkin pie.  They take a little patience to make, but they are totally worth it.

Pumpkin Spice Truffles
Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
  • 3/4 cup thick nut butter (I used almond butter)
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup almond flour
  • 3/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
Instructions
Place all the ingredients except the chocolate chips in a bowl and mix until combined. Then place the mixture in the freezer for at least two hours (or overnight). The longer you leave the mixture in the freezer, the easier it will be to roll into balls. After the mixture has chilled, roll into balls and place on parchment paper (on top of a baking tray). Melt the chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl using 30 second increments. Stir after each increment. Dip the truffles into the chocolate to coat (I use a spoon). Then place on the parchment paper. Put them in the freezer to set for at least an hour. Store these in the freezer.
