Oh my goodness I have no words for how delicious these healthy chocolate covered almond butter truffles are 😍😍😍 I was stressed out today and needing to get my mind off of everything going on so at 12:15 before my 1:00 o'clock class today I decided to make something sweet 😂 I totally made up this recipe as I went along and it somehow turned out amazing😂 they basically taste just like chocolate covered cookie dough😍 I was done by 12:45 so you can see how fast they are to make! You can substitute peanut butter if that is what you prefer😊Here's my recipe: •1/2 cup + one heaping tablespoon of @justins almond butter (this almond butter is found at Walmart in the peanut butter aisle. It's perfect👌) • Roughly 2 tablespoons of honey for sweetening. You can add more or less depending on your preference •1 cup old fashioned rolled oats •Around 1/4 cup almond milk (found by the milk at Walmart. I prefer the unsweetened for recipes) you can add more or less depending on how the dough feels as you make it! Just add a little at a time. • 2 tablespoons of mini chocolate chips (I used @enjoylifefoods mini semi sweet chocolate chips. They are dairy free, soy free, and nut free. You could substitute dark chocolate or eliminate altogether, but since the recipe is bigger anyways, two tablespoons doesn't amount to a whole lot.) You can choose whether or not you want to dip the truffles in chocolate! I chose to dip them today. I melted around 1/2 cup of the enjoy life chocolate chips I used in the dough and dipped the truffles down in it! You can save a few calories and skip the chocolate but I say it's worth it😉 I simply combined all of the ingredients together in a bowl. I used a tablespoon to measure out each ball and then individually dipped them in the chocolate! That's all there is to it. Fast, easy, and delicious! Still working out the number of balls each recipe makes(I saved some of the dough and made just enough today for @rachelmcrabtree and I) as well as the calorie, fat, and carbohydrate content. I am going to calculate it as soon as I can! These are seriously amazing and for the most part, a clean treat made with only healthy ingredients. Go make some!💕

Recipe:

1. Combine the almond butter, honey, old-fashioned oats, and almond milk in a large bowl. Mix until the ingredients are well combined.
 
2. Stir in the mini chocolate chips.
 
3. Using a rounded tablespoon, measure out 1 tablespoon for each truffle from the mixture and form into a ball. 
 
4. Place each ball on parchment paper (you can put the parchment paper on top of a cookie sheet) and pop into the fridge for 30 minutes.
 
5. After 30 minutes, take the truffles out. Melt 1/2 cup dark chocolate in a bowl, stirring every few seconds until it is melted and creamy.
 
6. Take a few truffles at a time and dip them with a spoon into the melted dark chocolate, covering them completely.
 
7. With the spoon, place each truffle back onto the parchment paper. Pop in the fridge for another 30-60 minutes to allow the chocolate to harden.
 
8. Remove from the fridge and enjoy!

These truffles will stay good in the fridge for about a week – if they last that long.
