{Vegan Orange Coconut Oatmeal Truffles}

Saturday, March 27, 2010

If there's one easy and inexpensive vegan dessert that's absolutely killer, it's this one.

6 tablespoons rolled oats
2 tablespoons grated coconut
1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
1 heaped tablespoon grated orange zest (zest of one small orange)
5 dried dates, medium size, chopped

2 tablespoons coconut oil (don't use more than suggested)
2 tablespoons agave syrup
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Coating (Optional) - a non negotiable in my book.
unsweetened cocoa powder
grated coconut


Combine all dry ingredients in a food processor and mix. Then add coconut oil, agave and vanilla and blend for about 45 sec - 1 minute. Out of the batter, form balls of the size of a cherry between the palms of your hands. Roll the ball in your preferred coating and place them in mini cupcake liners. Keep in fridge until serving.
