Experimenting in the kitchen can lead to success or failure but today I succeeded. Yes for the win! Cereal truffles turned out perfect.
Here is the recipe and check out more pictures below.
Jungle Munch Cereal Truffles
•2 Cups Cereal (I used Jungle Munch by Natures Path Organic EnviroKidz)
•1 Cup Dates, soaked
•2Tbsp cottage cheese (Vegan use 1Tbsp almond milk)
•1/2 Cup nuts/seeds (I used mixed almonds, cashews and walnuts)
•2Tbsp vanilla protein (I used @VegaTeam Vanilla Protein)
Chocolate sprinkles, cocoa powder, coconut & sprinkles (nuts would be good to).
Soak dates in hot water for about 15min. Process nuts/seeds in food processor until little bits, empty into bowl and set aside. Drain dates from water and place in food processor with cottage cheese or almond milk, pulse scraping down sides until smooth paste texture. Add cereal, processed nuts and protein powder to date mixture, process until all combined and cereal has processed down. Line dish with parchment paper and using cookie scoop or tablespoon scoop mixture onto parchment paper. Roll into balls, using water on your hands as needed as it can get sticky. Get your toppings ready and roll balls in until coated with topping. Place in mini cupcake liners and store in fridge until ready to enjoy. Yield 16.
Scoop mixture onto tray with tablespoon.
Roll into balls using your hands slightly wet with water.
Get your toppings together and roll balls until coated.
