Peanut Butter Honey Truffles

I made these cute and not too incredibly unhealthy truffles (really PB balls, but "truffle" sounds nice) for the kids at our after school program. They probably won't like them because they are nasty picky brats (jk...), but I think they're very tasty.


Adapted from The Shiksa

Makes about 30 1" balls

1/2 cup oats (blended to a fine powder)

1+ cup peanut butter (natural unsweetened if you have it)
1/2 cup honey (the stronger flavor the better, like lavender or wildflower)
1/2 tsp vanilla
pinch of salt (if your PB doesn't have salt)

Coating options:

(to coat about 3/4 of balls) 1/2 cup shredded coconut (blended to a coarse flake)
(to coat about 1/4 of balls) 2-3 tbsp cocoa powder
or crushed toasted almonds or some other nut, powdered or normal sugar, chopped up raisins, or more blended oats or whatever...

Do your blending - the oats and the coconut. Then mix together the ingredients (oats through optional salt). Taste and adjust to your liking. Roll into balls and coat them with coconut, cocoa powder or whatever you're using. Add more PB as needed. If they're really hard to roll, refrigerate a little first. 

I mixed about half of my batter with about a 1/4 cup of melted chocolate. These need refrigerated a few minutes before rolling.
