Vegan Chocolate Peanut Butter Truffles


Happy Valentine’s Day! Here’s a delicious guilty free treat to try.



Start by processing one quarter cup plus two tablespoons of large flake oats with a blender or food processor until it becomes flour-like in consistency.

Next, separately process or mash a quarter cup of pitted dates until smooth.

Mix together oat flour, dates, one tablespoon of cocoa powder, a quarter cup of natural peanut butter, a quarter cup of puffed millet (or cereal of your choice), a tablespoon of pure maple syrup and a pinch of salt until well mixed.

Roll mixture into 12 truffles and keep refrigerated. 


You can bag them up and give them to friends and family!
