Flourless Cookie Dough Truffles
A sweet treat without the guilt!
For the cookie dough
- 2 cups or 1 can chickpeas (If using dried chickpeas , soak overnight and then boil until soft before using.) You can also sub white beans if you wish.
- 1/2 cup gluten free rolled oats
- 2 tsp ground vanilla beans or 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 3-4 T maple syrup
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
For the chocolate
- 1 3.5 oz dark chocolate bar or 1 cup Enjoy Life nut free chips
- 1/4 cup flax milk
- In a food processor , grind the chickpeas.
- Then add in the oats and continue to mix for another minute.
- Lastly, add in the remaining ingredients for the cookie dough and mix until everything is combined.
- Roll the mixture into balls, place them on a lined baking sheet and stick them in the freezer for a couple minutes.
- While the balls are chilling, make the chocolate coating.
- Using a double boiler, melt the chocolate and milk together while stirring constantly.
- One the chocolate is melted, roll each ball in the chocolate and place them back on the parchment lined baking sheet.
- Once all the balls are covered in chocolate, store them in the fridge. They will get way too hard in the freezer.

Once all the truffles are coated in chocolate, they will need to chill in the fridge for about 30 minutes to set the chocolate coating.
