Healthy Six Ingredient Peanut Butter Truffles
Makes about 15 truffles
Add the dates and non-dairy milk to a high-powered blender or food processor. Pulse a few times, then blend until pasty. You may need to scrape down the sides a couple of times. Taste test— you’ve just made caramel out of dates, and it’s delicious!
Add your peanut butter and coconut oil or butter to the blender. Blend until a thick, smooth paste forms.
Slowly add in flour a few tablespoons at a time until the mixture forms a cookie dough consistency. Scrape the “cookie dough” into a bowl.
Line a cooling rack, cutting board or small baking sheet with wax or parchment paper. Using a tablespoon or a small scoop, scoop balls of dough. Roll each ball between your hands to make it smooth, then place on the wax or parchment paper. Once all dough has been scooped, place the sheet of truffles into the freezer for 15 minutes.
After 15 minutes, melt chocolate chips with 1 tsp. coconut oil (stovetop or microwave). If using the microwave, place in a microwave safe bowl, and heat in 30 second increments. Stir, and continue to heat every 30 seconds until chocolate is smooth.
Roll each dough ball into the chocolate, then place back onto the same parchment paper. Sprinkle with flakey sea salt immediately (if using), then repeat with all dough balls. Place finished truffles into the fridge to cool for another 15 minutes, and serve. Store in fridge or freezer in an airtight container. Truffles will keep for a couple of weeks in the freezer.

These healthy truffles have a caramel-like consistency and taste like peanut butter cookie dough — except they’re healthy! You could even omit the chocolate if you wanted to, but who would do a thing like that? Live your life, people! I like to eat these as a sweet snack when I am craving something sweet or chocolate midday. They also make a great dessert for those with dietary restrictions for different reasons.
