Sweet Treats

I am doing my best to kick a severe sugar addiction but when I just have to have something sweet I turn to these little round cuties. They feel guiltless and are the perfect snack with an afternoon cup of tea. (READ: I eat them with my morning coffee because the addiction is that bad.) They are a great snack for the minis too. I tell my kids they are "cookie dough". They are low in sugar, high in protein, and require no cooking at all. Yup, little chocolate nut balls. I swear they taste so much better than they look...

Chocolate Nut Truffles:
1 cup oats
3/4 cup walnuts
1/2 cup cashews
1/4 cup shredded coconut
3 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons all-natural peanut butter
1/2 cup semi-sweet chips

Combine all the ingredients together in the food processor. Blend for 2-3 minutes, remove top, and use a spatula to scrape ingredients down sides. Blend again until batter becomes a thick paste. Roll batter into bite-sized balls. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour and enjoy!

** I keep mine in the fridge in a sealed container. Truffles last up to 1 week when refrigerated.
