Create the perfect healthy desert for Valentines Day without baking in twenty minutes flat. This Vegan Chocolate Truffle recipe is so easy. They’re chocolatey on the outside and chewy on the inside. The best part is that they are ultra healthy without sacrificing deliciousness.

You can swap out the cashew butter for any type of nut butter. Almond or sunflower butter will work just as well. You can use peanut butter for the kids. I don’t use peanut butter because of the aflatoxins found in peanuts. Aflatoxins are known to cause mold. 

If you don’t have cocoa butter you can use coconut oil instead. But the chocolate will melt quicker when you take it out of the refrigerator. The chocolate on these truffles doesn’t melt at room temperature. Which makes them great for a snack on the go or a desert the can be left out of the fridge. Perfect for entertaining.

These truffles are chocolatly on the outside and rich and creamy on the inside. The cashew butter and oats give this truffle the perfect chewy and creamy texture. Low on sugar and raw vegan. This desert is as healthy as they come!
