They look like truffles but actually they are almond butter balls :)


  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup finely chopped pitted dates
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup almond butter
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • pinch ground nutmeg
  • pinch ground cinnamon


Place oats in the bowl of a food processor and process until finely ground. Add dates, 2 tablespoons cocoa, almond butter, vanilla, nutmeg and cinnamon and process until finely ground and sticking together. Place remaining cocoa powder in a shallow bowl. Roll truffle mixture into balls about 2 teaspoons each, pressing firmly for mixture to stick together. Roll truffles in cocoa powder and chill until ready to serve.
