For Nougat Lovers……
If you have never been inspired to eat healthier, and you think that it can’t taste good if it is good for you, I am here to rescue you from your nightmare. First, healthy eating is all about balance. You don’t have to be 100% good, 100% of the time. Most people find that eating at the 80/20 ratio is totally doable and can be achieved with little to no feelings of regret. But what I love to do is make foods that are 100% healthy and 100% indulgent as often as I can. Today’s recipe is going to fulfill all of your nutrition, and chocolate dreams. Yes, I said nutrition, and chocolate in the same sentence. You are never going to believe how healthy, tasty, and easy today’s recipe is!
Imagine this for a second, a whipped chocolate truffle with bits of crunch chocolate on the inside and rolled in crunchy goodness on the outside. The fluffy center reminds me of a Three Musketeers bar. I haven’t had one in years, but I remember the taste, and the texture like it was yesterday. If you are a nougat fan then you are going to be head over heels in love with these tasty little treats. Let me give you a quick run down on their nutrition to get you really excited!

Now you tell me which is a better idea!
The ingredient that makes these truffles so magnificent, and mouth watering, is the Soom tahini. I decided to use a mixture of their plain tahini and their chocolate tahini and the results are amazing! Their tahini is vegan, gluten free, organic, dairy free, and peanut free. Their seasame seeds are single sourced white Ethiopian sesame seeds. The texture is so silky and smooth. It is an amazing replacement anywhere you would normally use peanut butter, like right off the spoon. 😉 I am in love! I know you will be to so I am going to let you go and make a batch so you can sit back, relax, and enjoy!
How do you eat your tahini?
Whipped Chocolate Tahini & Chia Truffles
By Angie Gouchenour
¼ cup Soom plain tahini
¼ cup Soom chocolate tahini
2 Tablespoons Sugar 2.0
78 grams vanilla protein powder (I used No Udder Protein/4 scoops)
2 teaspoons chocolate covered chia seeds
2 Tablespoons white chia seeds for rolling
In a medium bowl stir together both tahinis, the Sugar 2.0, and vanilla protein powder
Stir in chocolate covered chia seeds (You might need to use your hands to incorporate them evenly)
Squish the dough and roll it into 12 balls
Place the white chia seeds in a bowl and roll each ball in the seeds until covered
Place them on a sheet pan, or plate, and freeze for about 30 minutes.
Transfer to the fridge
Allow them to thaw before eating
NOTE: If you just put them in the fridge, and don’t freeze them first, they get crumbly.
