|Mocha Omega Truffles|
To make about four dozen Mocha Omega Truffles:
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/4 cup olive oil
2 cups sugar
1 cup strong, black coffee
2 tsp instant coffee (or more, to taste)
1 cup flaxseed meal
3 cups quick oats
1 cup crushed almonds
In a large sauce pan, mix olive oil and cocoa powder. Slowly heat, constantly stirring. When the powder is completely melted, stir in the sugar, coffee, and instant coffee. Heat until it starts to bubble, constantly stirring. Add the flaxseed meal and stir again until bubbly. Stir in the oatmeal maintaining a low heat for a couple more minutes.
Turn off the heat. As soon as the mixture is cool enough to touch, start breaking off chunks and rolling into 1" balls, and roll in crushed almonds. They will firm up a little when chilled, if they last that long.
