Vegan cookie dough truffles are a yummy snack when you're craving something sweet. So tasty, easy, and kid-friendly!
1 cup gluten-free oat flour
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1 tablespoon coconut oil, softened
1 tablespoon almond butter
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Pinch sea salt
8 oz. + 2 tablespoons chocolate chips or carob chips, divided
Optional: flaked sea salt
In a bowl, mix together the oat flour, maple syrup, coconut oil, almond butter, vanilla extract and sea salt. Stir well, then add 2 tablespoons of the carob chips. Roll into 8 bite-size little balls. Feel free to double the recipe if you want a larger batch. Refrigerate the cookie dough balls for about 12 minutes.
Using a double boiler or a stainless steel bowl placed over a saucepan of boiling water, melt the chocolate chips or carob chips. One at a time, drop the chilled cookie dough balls into the melted chocolate, turning it to completely cover it. Carefully place on a piece of parchment paper. Repeat with the remaining cookie dough balls. Feel free to sprinkle with flaked sea salt before they cool and harden. You can also use a spoon to drizzle a little extra melted chocolate on top. Chill the cookie dough balls again before serving.
