Oatmeal Chocolate Delights

1. 250g oatmeal ground
2. 50g cocoa powder
3. 50ml almond oil or 125g butter
4. 5 TBS orange juice
5. 1 stalk vanilla pods
6. 3 TBS honey or maple syrup or 200g sugar
7. Coconut or pecan ground (for coating) :-)

1. Combine all ingredients except coconut or pecan.
2. Roll into dough and leave in the fridge for an hour.
3. Form into small balls.
4. Coat with coconut or pecan.
5. Leave in fridge for another hour, but if you can't wait, you can also eat it now.
6. Ready to serve.

Additional Information:
J made this in school today. He wrote down the recipe and wanted to try it at home. Today, I picked him up early at 2.30pm. So we had a cozy time making this together before heading for his piano class.

Although the original recipe uses oatmeal, the amount of butter and sugar makes it very unhealthy. For those we made together at home, we made it healthier. I basically cut down the 200g of sugar to one-third. I did not use butter. It still tasted super chocolaty and sweet.
