Yes, these chocolate truffles are made with black beans! I know what you’re thinking. No, they don’t taste of black beans! These vegan 4-ingredient black bean truffles are chocolatey, fudgy, simply delicious – and no bean taste at all!
Two years ago I made vegan Easter egg truffles with adzuki beans. And these bean truffles were unexpectedly so delicious that I had to make the truffles again – this time with black beans. Black bean truffles are full of protein and fiber, low in added sugar, naturally gluten-free, nut-free and vegan, and made with only 4 ingredients: black beans, sugar, cocoa powder and cocoa butter (or coconut oil).

- 1/4 cup dried black beans
- 4 tbsp powdered sugar

Cook Black Bean
Optional: Soak the dried black beans in cold water overnight. Rinse and drain.
Cook black beans with 1 cup water in a pressure cooker for 25 – 30 minutes. Let the pressure release naturally. Drain and allow to cool.
Black Bean Paste
Place black beans, melted cocoa butter (or coconut oil), powdered sugar and cocoa powder in a food processor and blend until smooth.
Strain black beans through a fine mesh sieve. Then stir in the melted cocoa butter (or coconut oil), powdered sugar and cocoa powder.
Black Bean Truffles
Put the black bean truffle mixture in the fridge for about 30 minutes to firm up.
Scoop out tablespoonfuls of the truffle mixture and form into balls. Put back in the fridge to chill for approximately 10 minutes.
Optional: Using a fork or toothpick, dip the vegan black bean truffles into melted chocolate or roll in cocoa powder.
Store the vegan black bean truffles in the fridge and consume soon after making.
