Healthy Snack Recipes #2

Cocoa Oat Truffles

Ingredients


1 cup rolled oats
1 cup pitted dates, chopped
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup raw, natural almond butter
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon

Directions

Step 1:
Place the oats in the bowl of a food processor and process until finely ground.

Step 2:
Add dates, 2 Tbsp cocoa powder, almond butter, vanilla, nutmeg and cinnamon and process until finely ground and slightly sticking together (it will form a loose batter).

Step 3:
Place remaining cocoa powder in a shallow bowl. Roll truffle mixture into balls (2 or 3 tsp per truffle), pressing firmly for mixture to stick together. Note: if you use 2 tsp per truffle, you will end up with 40 calories per truffle. If you use 3 tsp per truffle, you will end up with 60 calories per truffle. I also spread the “batter” out on a plate because it was easier to scoop up with my 1 tsp measure. After a few presses in between my hands, I ended up with these perfect little cocoa balls. Note: do not roll the batter in your hands (to form a ball) – it will fall apart. Make sure to press it firmly with your fingers/hands until it binds together, kind of like if you were playing with play-dough.

Step 4: Roll truffles in cocoa powder and chill until ready to serve (I chilled mine for about 1 hour).
