These truffles are so delicious and so very chocolate-y. With no cooking involved they are easy to make and a great recipe for kids as well.

They are vegan and gluten-free

Chocolate coconut oatmeal truffles
Makes about 30 truffles.

1 cup of oats - gluten free: I use Bob's Red Mill.
1/2 cup shredded unsweetened coconut. I use Sprout's organic.
1/2 cup coconut oil - I use unrefined, organic.
1/3 cup agave or honey (but won't be vegan, then)
5 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder. I use Trader Joe's fair trade, organic.
3 tbs water
1/2 tsp vanilla sugar or extract.
4 drops of almond extract (optional)

For rolling: 1/3 cup of shredded unsweetened coconut.

Combine all ingredients with a fork. Make sure all the fat has been mixed well with everything else. If they seem dry, you can always add another tbsp of water, but wait until everything is very well combined before making that call.

Roll into just under 1 inch balls and cover in shredded coconut.

Now for the difficult part: chill for 10-15 minutes. This will make them a bit more firm and give the oats time to soak up the moisture. 10-15 minutes can seem so long all of a sudden, right? ... but so worth the wait ;)







It might seem dry when you start stirring...



However, after about 30 seconds you should see all the ingredients combining nicely like this.



Roll into balls and cover with coconut. Chill for 10-15 minutes. This will make them a bit more firm and give the oats time to soak up the moisture.

They will keep in the fridge for several days. Question is: will you let them?
