Let's make these vegan chocolate-covered coffee bean truffles!
TO make these coffee truffles you will need a high-speed blender or a food processor. I used a food processor because it works perfectly for this recipe.
In a food processor add dates, water, and almond extract. Blend until smooth and creamy.
Transfer this mixture to a bowl and add oat flour, almond meal, cacao powder, coffee and combine.
The last step is to form coffee beans. Simply scoop 1 tbsp of the mixture and roll the bowl into your hands. If the mixture is too sticky, then use rice flour for your hands and for coating.
Lastly, flatten the ball and create the shape of a coffee bean using a toothpick.
Melt the vegan chocolate with coconut oil and coven each coffee bean truffle thinly.
Put the truffles into the fridge for at least 1 hour before serving. Enjoy!
