Number of Servings: 20

Ingredients

    1 - 2+ cups quick oats (use only 1 cups for first mixture; save remaining for added thickening)
    cup almond milk
    cup+ cocoa powder
    6-7 Tbsp maple syrup (or 3-4 Tbsp Agave)
    cup walnuts
    cup raisins
    3 Tbsp almond or peanut butter

Tips

Note: truffles taste best if allowed to reach room temperature after refrigeration, keep covered to keep from drying out.


Directions

Combine maple syrup, almond milk, and cocoa in saucepan. Mix at medium-low heat until fully mixed, about 2-3 minutes. Add nut butter and stir for additional 2 minutes. Add oats, raisins, and walnuts to the mixture. Stir at low heat until liquid is absorbed by the oats and fully combined. Consistency should be thick enough to form a loose cookie ball. If necessary, add remaining oats (about cup). If consistency is still not thick enough, continue to stir at low heat for additional 3-4 minutes. Using a spoon and fork, shape into loose ping-pong ball sized shapes and place on a tray to cool. Using a sprinkle of cocoa powder in the palm of your hand, further shape into a small ball using both palms and a circular motion. Place on serving tray and lightly sprinkle all balls with cocoa. Makes about 20, keep refrigerated for 12 hours.
