Nofu Truffles

In the old days, one of Abby's very favorite Holiday candies were the peanut butter buckeye's. She was always hopeful I would run out of the chocolate to dip them in as her preference was just the peanut butter.

I had some nofu needing to be used or tossed. Decided I could "try" to replicate that for her.

1 cup nofu butter(Search blog for Nofu Butter- how to turn your tofu/nofu into fake peanut butter!)
(salt if needed, we had lightly salted this batch of nofu butter so I gave this a quick dash to get that great sweet and salty we all love about peanut butter)
2 Tablespoons coconut oil
1 1/2 cup powdered sugar(give or take.)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla(homemade)

Place the coconut oil, nufu butter in microwave safe bowl. Just 15-25 seconds softened it up enough to be able to mix the them together until smooth. I then added 1/2 cup at a time of powdered sugar(cornfree is getting easier to buy or homemade)until it was pretty thick, but not quite thick enough to roll easily.

Then I placed it in the fridge for 30-1 hour to get it hard enough to roll into bite size balls.

I rolled a few in fine coconut shreds, a few in powdered sugar and a few plain, just the way she loves them.

Yummy! What a great holiday treat, plus another safe candy to add to her list!
The Injera items seem really interesting. Has it been hard to eat them because they look so much like chocolate but doesn't taste like it? Plus having a safe tortilla seems great here in Texas!

:-) Oh no easy to eat! Before project elimination we ate a lot of black russian bread which is even darker, and always a multi cultural diet- just pushing a bit further for Abby to have a varied and nutritious diet now instead of cooking funky for our taste buds. no kidding right? Safe tortilla is important here! I actually have a safe gf,corn free etc regular tortilla I make as well, but this was more fun and tastier! :-)
