THE PLANT-BASED COMMUNITY COOKERY SCHOOL
These truffles are nut-free, gluten-free, sweetened naturally AND they’re good for you! Yes, that’s right, despite tasting decadent and festive, these gingerbread cookie dough truffles are made with wholesome ingredients that will make you feel great and give you a lovely boost of nutrients. If you'd prefer not to coat in chocolate, you can double the "gingerbread sprinkle" and roll the gingerbread cookie dough balls in that instead. Although you can buy tiger nut flour and oat flour, you can make your own by whizzing tiger nuts or oats in a food processor or blender.
