Ingredients And Substitutions

These are the main ingredients and substitutions for Sugar Cookie Truffles. Scroll down to the recipe card for a full list of ingredients and instructions.

The base of this recipe is made with almond butter which gives these truffles that lovely texture without all the chocolate. You may sub for cashew butter, oat butter or tahini for a nut free option.

Maple syrup is a unrefined sweetener that I love to use in my recipes, it adds a perfectly sweet taste, similar to a sugar cookie.

We will use both almond and vanilla extract for these truffles. The almond extract is a must as that’s what brings out that unique taste in sugar cookies.

I prefer to use oats for this recipe as one bite will keep you fuller, longer. However, you may sub for almond flour as well. However, you may need to add more in to reach the right consistency.

We’ll dip and coat these truffles in melted white chocolate and top them off with Christmas sprinkles.

These are so delish! My kids and friends love them – I love anything with almond extract and the flavor balance is so good. And so fun to decorate!

I made these last week and they turned out so good! I substituted 1/2 cup of the oat flour for protein powder and ended up adding some almond milk to get the right consistency. I highly recommend making these!
