These chocolatey treats are a cross between a fudgy dark chocolate truffle and delicious, tender cookie dough. They are RICH AND DECADENT AND SO ADDICTIVE!
Where are all my dark chocolate lovers at?!? I made this especially for you. With a deep chocolate-nutty flavor and a smooth, fudgy texture, these truffles will soon become your favorite treat!
This lovely dessert (or snack) is SO EASY to make! All you need is 6 simple ingredients, 1 medium bowl and 5 minutes of your time. The best part is, these truffles are undetectably healthy. They are made with cacao powder (so high in antioxidants!), peanut butter and oat flour. And even though it’s, well, chocolate, these little fudgy bites can be a great afternoon pick-me-up or post-workout treat! They are protein-rich, fiber-rich and super nutritious! But they taste like a fancy, luxurious dessert.
You can store them in the fridge for up to a week (or freeze them for up to a month), though I don’t think they will last that long. They have a fudgier texture at room temperature, so I like to take them out of the fridge 15 minutes before eating them, but who am I kidding, they are delicious straight out of the fridge too!

Peanut Butter and Chocolate Truffles
- ½ cup smooth peanut butter
- ¼ cup oat flour - use gluten-free if necessary
- 3 Tbsp cacao powder
- 3 Tbsp coconut nectar or maple syrup
- 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 3 Tbsp toasted peanuts
- Add peanuts to a blender or food processor and blend until coarsely ground. Transfer to a small bowl and set aside.
- Combine peanut butter, coconut nectar and vanilla extract in a medium bowl. Whisk until combined.
- Add oat flour and cacao powder and mix until well combined. The dough should be slightly firm and form easily when squeezed between your fingers. If it's too soft and sticky add more oat flour, one tablespoon at a time.
- Roll into 10-12 balls. And then roll each ball in peanut crumbs.
- Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week (or freeze them for up to a month). They have a fudgier texture at room temperature, so I like to take them out of the fridge 15 minutes before eating them.
