Peanut Butter Chocolate Oatmeal Truffles

Absolutely delicious recipe. It ends up being about 100 calories each, but beware: you could very well sit there and eat the whole batch. My only alteration to the recipe was that I used those 60% vegetable oil sticks instead of pure butter.

  • 2 cups rolled old-fashioned oats
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 3-4 tablespoons peanut butter (I used crunchy, but creamy is also fine)
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
Combine oats, sugar, cocoa and mix. Mix in water, vanilla, butter (I melted it first), and finally peanut butter. Roll the dough into balls about 1 inch thick. Roll it in powdered sugar to coat as much as you like. Chill in the fridge at least half an hour.
