Chocolate peanut butter truffle bites

Chocolate peanut butter truffle bites

Might be one of the most heavenly chocolate truffles I’ve ever tasted. Very easy to make, with only a few ingredients and melting-in-your-mouth-kind-of-yummy. Any further description unnecessary - let’s get baking!

Chocolate peanut butter truffle bites

Makes 12

Ingredients

3 dl / 1.2 cups rolled oats

1 dl / 0.4 dl cacao (preferably raw)

1 tsp ground cinnamon

1 pinch flakey salt

12 fresh dates, pitted

1/2 dl / 0.2 cups unsweetened crunchy peanut butter

Frosting

8 fresh dates, pitted

3 Tbsp cold pressed coconut oil, room temperature

5 Tbsp water

1/2 dl / 0.2 cups cacao (preferably raw)

1 pinch flakey salt

How to

For the base: Mix oats, cacao, cinnamon and salt in a food processor. Add dates and peanut butter and mix until a sticky batter (I like when there are still some crunch to it so I tend to not mix until completely smooth). Add some more water if it feels too dry. Firmly press the dough in to a a small baking mold (covered with parchment paper). Put in the fridge.

For the frosting: Mix all the ingredients until completely smooth in a food processor. Spread out the frosting over the base. Put back in the fridge for an hour before serving.

Cut in to 12 pieces. Powder with extra cacao and sprinkle with salt before serving. DIG IN!

PS. Store in the fridge, or freezer (if any left…)
