Chocolate Coconut Truffle Bites: #120 of 1000 Sustainable Food Experiments

These truffle bites are SO GOOD!!!! It’s hard to believe they’re plant-based (no butter, no refined sugar, no cream). You have to try them. Seriously. 

This is part of our 1,000 Food Experiments to create sustainable meals for our family and hopefully yours.

Ingredients ($7.50 for 18 balls)

1 1/2 cup rolled oats – $0.18
1/2 cup cocoa – $0.55
1/4 cup ground flax seeds – $0.40
1/2 cup semisweet or dark chocolate chips (optional) – $0.50
1/2 cup coconut butter, softened – $4.40
1/4 cup honey – $0.56
1/4 cup maple syrup – $0.95
1 tsp vanilla – $0.20

Directions

1. In a medium bowl, mix the oats, cocoa, flax, and chocolate chips together.

2. In a small bowl, mix the coconut butter, honey, maple syrup, and vanilla together. Pour this over the dry ingredients and mix it all up. Feel free to use your hands!

3. Use your hands to press the amazingly delicious mixture into bite-sized balls. Savor at room temperature or store covered in the fridge or freezer.
