Non-Dairy Chocolate Truffle Cookies
- 1 cup Cheerios cereal
- 1/4 cup quinoa flour
- 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/3 cup cocoa powder
- 2 tablespoons coconut oil
- 1 small egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Powdered sugar, to taste for garnish
- Put the Cheerios, quinoa flour, baking powder, salt, sugar, cocoa powder and coconut oil in a food processor. Process to mix.
- Add the egg and vanilla, and continue processing for a few seconds until a very soft dough has formed. Transfer to a plastic bag and freeze for at least 1 hour. You can also freeze overnight.
- Preheat the oven to 375 °F.
- Remove the dough from the freezer. Form balls by the rounded teaspoon and roll in powdered sugar. Arrange the cookies, with plenty of space between each dough ball, on a baking sheet lined with a silicone baking mat or greased parchment paper. Bake for 8 minutes.
- Remove from the oven and let the cookies cool on the baking sheet before transferring to cooling rack to cool completely. Serve and enjoy!
- Roll the cookies in chopped walnuts in place of the powdered sugar for a different texture.
