Pumpkin Truffles (Vegan and Gluten Free)

Pumpkin Truffles.  Are you sick of pumpkin yet?  I am so obsessed with pumpkin recipes these days.  These pumpkin chocolate truffles are delicious and they would be perfect for a Thanksgiving dessert.

I had to stop myself from eating more than one.  These pumpkin chocolate truffles may be my most favorite pumpkin dessert recipe yet!  You can’t really go wrong with pumpkin and chocolate!


Pumpkin Truffles - My Whole Food Life


These pumpkin truffles are a little bite of heaven.  You only need 7 ingredients to make them!  They are vegan, gluten free and paleo.  Imagine a pumpkin cream covered in chocolate.

Perfection!  I used chocolate chips in my recipe, but this would also work with my 3 ingredient chocolate recipe.  If you choose to use that, don’t add the milk.  Just make the chocolate sauce as is.  I hope you enjoy this as much as I did!

    1. No, I'm definitely not sick of pumpkin recipes yet! I wait for this season! These look amazing. I've never seen anything like this, actually. Even though I'm not sick of muffins, pumpkin bread, or PSL yet, this is definitely different. Bookmarking this to try soon!! Thanks for sharing!
    2. How could anyone be tired of pumpkin yet! It's only September!! OMG I ride the pumpkin train right to Thanksgiving. Thanks for sharing this and mentioning Thanksgiving - must get on my meal planning for that too. Saving this :)
    3. I love anything pumpkin and so does my family. The only thing is I have a son with a tree nut allergy. Has this been made with regular butter and regular milk?
        1. Thanks for the yummy recipe. The coconut butter looks like a yogurt consistency and you mentioned milk as a substitute. Would you recommend yogurt instead of milk or does it really matter?
          1. Yogurt may be a little too soft. Coconut butter is more of a peanut buttery consistency. It just looks a little watery in the photo because I didn't stir the jar very well.
            1. Is coconut butter the same as coconut peanut spread (found in peanut butter aisle) or like butter found with Earth's Balance products in dairy department?
    4. Hello - thank you for all of the AMAZING recipes. My boys have been so much easier to transition over to whole food healthy eating due to your website. They LOVE to get on the computer and scroll through the recipes to see which new thing we can try. Is there a sub for the coconut butter that is dairy free? I want to make these today, but do not have coconut butter on hand....Thank you for all of your hard work!
    5. Hi! These look delicious! I am looking forward to making them! I don't have coconut butter but Googled how to make your own. There's a lot of info on how to make your own CB and it's very easy and less expensive! Thank you Melissa for another great healthy recipe to satisfy my sweet tooth!
      1. Thank you! It's super easy to make your own. I do it all the time and actually have a post on that as well. I hope you enjoy the truffles!
    6. Does the coconut butter affect the taste of the truffles? We have a severe coconut allergy in our house, but a love of all things pumpkin.
      1. You can try making these with cream cheese instead of coconut butter, but you will need to add more sweetener to mask the tartness of the cream cheese. Not 100% sure it will work though.
