Vegan Peanut Butter Truffles! Super sweet and raw, to boot.



Why is it that when someone says the words 'vegan' or 'raw' others automatically say 'no'? It's so strange to me that these foods are seen as lesser substitutes to their omni counterparts. It's still food, gosh darn it. Step outside your little comfort zone and fight the dark lords of the culinary world, all Indiana Jone style.
These little gems will kick any non-believers arse. Seriously. I could only eat a couple- they are just that sweet. And they really don't take much effort. Ever eaten peanut butter and jam on a spoon? That's what this tastes like but it's good for you.

Time: 10 minutes
Makes: 14


Ingredients: •One cup of sultanas.
•Two tablespoons of all natural peanut butter.
•One tablespoon of chopped peanuts.
•One tablespoon of water.
•Two tablespoons of crushed peanuts (just take some of the chopped nuts and hit them with a rolling pin, crush them in a coffee grinder or a mortar and pestle.)

Method: Put all of the ingredients, except for the crushed nuts, in a food processor and blend until the mixture clumps.
Take out of the blender and roll into small balls. Roll these balls in the crushed peanuts and place them in the fridge. They keep well in the freezer, too.
