Maple Walnut Cheesecake Truffles

Faith Gorsky


If you’re in need of a holiday treat without the guilt, then these Maple Walnut Cheesecake Truffles are for you.

These itty bitty power-packed treats are deceiving; despite being small, they pack a serious punch of protein and whole grain. Plus they’re naturally sweetened with a touch of maple syrup, gluten-free (just be mindful of the brand of oats you buy; be sure to buy from a company who offers certified gluten-free oats because some companies process their oats on the same equipment that they use to process products containing gluten), and dairy-free.

Faith, you are my fave. I am all about recipes like this one that make simple, healthy swaps without sacrificing flavor. These Maple Walnut Cheesecake Truffles have made their way to the top of my must-make-now list. ~Betsy
