One of my husband’s favorite cookies are Oatmeal Raisin with Walnuts.  I happened to come across this recipe for Oatmeal Cookie Dough Truffles and I knew with a couple of changes that I could clean it up!  These turned out amazing!  In between bites my husband proclaimed them to be his new favorite ‘cookie’.  ENJOY!

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup roasted unsalted cashews
  • 1/3 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 tbsp unsweetened applesauce (recipe here)
  • 1/3 cup + 3 tbsp raisins, divided
  • 3 large pitted Medjool dates
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract

Preparation:

  1. In a food processor (or powerful blender), combine cashews and oats.  Process until you have a coarsely ground mixture.  Transfer the mixture to a small bowl and set aside.

    Process cashews and oats until finely ground

  2. Place the applesauce, 1/3 cup raisins, dates, cinnamon and vanilla into the food processor and blend until you have a thick paste.  Add back in the cashew mixture and process all the ingredients together to form your ‘dough’.
  3. Remove the dough from the food processor and place in a small bowl.  Gently knead the remaining raisins into the dough.
  4. Using the palms of your hands form the dough into 10 bite sized truffles.  If the dough is too sticky to roll into truffles simply refrigerate for about 5-10 minutes.
  5. Place the truffles in the refrigerator for 10 minutes before serving.  ENJOY!
