Chopped caramelised hazelnutssee recipe below post
Line a large plate with baking paper and set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the oat flour, cocoa powder, sweetener of choice, protein powder if using it and chopped hazelnuts and mix well.
In a microwave safe bowl or oven the stove, melt the hazelnut butter. Pour the hazelnut butter over the dry mixture and mix until it is crumbly. Using a tablespoon, pour the dairy free milk of choice until the batter is firm but mixable (try to aim for them to be on the stickier side).
On a large plate, cover with the chopped caramelised hazelnuts and set aside.
Using your hands, form into small balls. Add a single hazelnut into the centre of each ball and roll in the chopped hazelnuts until completely covered and no longer sticky. Repeat the process until all the batter is used.
Freeze for at least 20 minutes or refrigerate for an hour.
* For paleo version, use coconut flour OR a blend of almond and coconut flour ** Adjust to desired sweetness *** Do not use straight whey- It makes the mixture very difficult to form into balls **** Depending on the flours used and protein powder used, you may need more or less. With the paleo version, I used over a full cup. Bites can be left at room temperature but will be soft. Best kept in the fridge or freezer and slightly thawed.
