I have to say I was scratching my head for a while to think what I should name these. Eventually I said let's call it oatmeal Truffles. Reason why it was hard was I have put in so many goodies in it. No matter what you choose to call it, these truffles are healthy and tasty at the same time. They are loaded with fiber. When you want to increase the fiber intake for yourself or for your family, this one is a easier way to do.
The measurements are really mostly rough estimates, you can add or remove the things that you like. It's very versatile and you can change it according to your palette.

Apricot - 1 Cup
Craisins (Dried cranberry) - 1/2 Cup
Dates (Pitted) - 1 Cup
Prunes - 1/2 Cup
Oatmeal - 3/4 Cup
Cocoa Powder - 2 tbsp
Molasses - 2 tbsp
Brown Sugar (Optional) - 1/3 Cup

Method of Preparation:
~ Place apricot, craisins, dates and prunes in a food processor. With processor running, add all other items one by one. The mass should come together.
~ Once done, take out and make little truffles.
~ I add coconut last, so that the texture remains in the truffles.
~ I sometimes roll these in some coconut flakes to give it a professional look.
