dairy free peanut butter and chocolate truffles

Indulge your sweet tooth with this chocolate confectionary. You may sometimes confuse it with the valuable fungus of the same name, but the two truffles actually are more connected to each other than you think. The sweet confection is named as such as it resembles the edible part of the highly prized (and priced) fungus. Give a food gift that’s not only healthy and delicious, but also homemade.


Dairy-Free Peanut Butter and Chocolate Truffles
Makes 16 pieces


¼ cup Refined coconut oil

¼ cup Soy milk or almond milk

½ cup Coconut sugar

2 Tbsps Unsweetened cocoa powder

¼ cup Peanut butter

1 tsp Vanilla extract

1 ½ cups Quick cooking oats

⅓ cup Roasted cashews, finely chopped


  1. Combine the coconut oil, soy milk, coconut sugar, and cocoa powder in a saucepan and bring to a gentle boil. Whisk until combined then turn off the heat.
  2. Transfer the mixture into a bowl. Add the peanut butter, vanilla extract, and quick-cooking oats. Mix well and refrigerate for an hour.
  3. Scoop a tablespoon of the mixture and with oiled hands, roll into balls. Afterwards, roll them onto the cashew nuts to coat the truffles.
  4. Place in lined boxes and keep the truffles in the chiller until you’re ready to give them as gifts.
