A few days ago I had bought puffed rice for the first time. To be honest I didn’t like its taste, so I decide to make something with it. So yesterday I came up with the idea of making hazelnut truffles with it. They turned out fantastic, so tasteful and healthy! Note: you could also use another type of cereals such as coco pops. Another way to enjoy these truffles is to cut them and add in your morning oats. Heavenly combo! Feed your kids with this kind of sweet treats and not storebought ones. They are full of conservatives and sugar. A few days ago I was in a super market and decided to read the labels on the cereal packages. They are supposed to be good for us, right? People, we are talking about marketing tricks! They are not healthy since they contain lots of sugars! Not to mention ingredients we have not a clue what they are! The more unknown words I have when I read a label, the less likely it is to buy this product.
Don’t forget that «we are what we eat!» Happy Tuesday, dear friends!
Ingredients (yields 14 truffles):
1 cup raw hazelnuts (120 gr.)
1 1/2 cup puffed rice (45 gr.)
2 Tbsp cocoa powder
3 Tbsp agave syrup
1/2 cup soy milk (chocolate flavoured is preferable)
1/2 tsp vanilla extract (optional)
about 100 gr. vegan chocolate for coating
In a blender pulse hazelnuts until perfectly ground. Then add cocoa powder, agave syrup, vanilla extract and milk and pulse again until well combined. Transfer this paste in a bowl and add puffed rice. Stir with a spoon until well combined. Cover with a plastic wrap and put in the fridge for 2 hours. Then form truffles with the dough, lay them on a platter. Melt chocolate in a baigne marie. Using two forks dip each truffle in melted chocolate. Lay them on a bakinh sheet lined with parchment paper. Allow to cool and store in a container in the fridge. Enjoy!
