116. cocoa oat truffles.

There is no way to take a pretty photo of these. But trust me, they taste WAY better than they look. In fact, they are delicious! And they have no refined sugar! They are a great way to satisfy the chocolate craving!

Heres what you do:

1 cup rolled oats
1 cup finely chopped pitted dates
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder, divided
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Pinch ground cinnamon
  1. Place oats in vitamix or food processor and process until finely ground.
  2. Add dates, 2 tablespoons cocoa, peanut butter, vanilla, and cinnamon and process until finely ground and sticking together.
  3. Place remaining cocoa powder in a shallow bowl.
  4. Roll truffle mixture into balls about 2 teaspoons each, pressing firmly for mixture to stick together. Roll truffles in cocoa powder and dust lightly with powdered sugar if desired.
  5. Chill until ready to serve.
