Chocolate TrufflesCourse: SnacksDifficulty: Easy
1/4 cup oat flour (simply grind 1/4 cup oats in a blender)
1/2 cup almond flour
1/4 cup cacao powder
2 Tbsp. maple syrup
1 Tbsp. natural peanut butter (the more liquid, the better)
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
2 Tbsp. soy milk
Sprinkle of sea salt – I used Maldon salt
Optional: 3 mashed raspberries to add into a few truffles for added flavor
- Mix almond flour, oat flour, cacao powder, maple syrup, and milk together in a bowl until well combined. Optional: if you are wanting raspberry flavor in the truffle, add mashed raspberries at this step.
- Roll this mixture into balls the size of a ping pong. Place on a plate lined with parchment paper and place in fridge to cool. This makes the truffles easier to work with. Note: If you are wanting to use the raspberries, mash them with a fork in a separate bowl and add half of the almond/oat flour mixture to the bowl. Mix and roll into balls.
- Add chocolate chips and peanut butter into a separate bowl and microwave until melted. Stir every 20-30 seconds so that it does not burn. Repeat this step until it is completely liquid.
- Next, using a fork or spoon, place each truffle in the melted chocolate until covered and return back to the plate. Once all truffles are coated in chocolate, sprinkle with sea salt and store in fridge to cool for 45-60 minutes.
- Enjoy as a delicious snack or share with your Valentine!
