Black Bean Truffles - The Ultimate Late Night Craving Crusher

OMG you guys, this is no joke, the BEST clean 'dessert' I've ever tried.

I'm not sure about you, but nighttime is my toughest time, in terms of willpower. I always want something after dinner and let's be honest, fruit? Not gonna cut it.

I will usually do Muscle Gain as my 'dessert', but sometimes, I need something to actually eat.

And then this happened...

...and this is why Monica is a fabulous genius.

I admit that when I saw this recipe I saw the words 'food processor' and immediately dismissed it. I don't know why, but I have this preconceived notion that anything that requires an appliance other than an oven is way to difficult for me to attempt. Boy am I glad I got over that today, because this was honestly one of the easiest recipes. You just throw everything in the food processor and hit 'on'!

I just finished a batch of these and barely had enough to actually make because I consumed 3/4's of the 'batter', which is actually fine because it's vegan. You guys. Vegan. Seriously. Yes, and it was the highlight of my day. 

I didn't coat them in chocolate because my batter wasn't thick, it was more like pancake batter so, I couldn't roll balls of them. I ended up putting them in silicone muffin cups and freezing them. Also, I went with the coconut oil instead of PB. One word. Amazing. 

Head on over and see what this amazing-ness is all about and make some immediately. And remember, just because they're clean, doesn't mean you can eat a 5 gallon bucket full of them. I only say that to warn you...because I promise, you'll want to.
