2 cups rolled oats

1 teaspoon ground flax seed
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
18 Medjool dates, softened in hot water for 20 minutes and then pitted
2 tablespoons of water
In a food processor add the oats, walnuts, cinnamon, flax seed, and salt. Keep it running until you reach a meal-like consistency. Transfer the mixture to a separate bowl.

Pick off about an inch of the mixture and roll in your hands. Carefully slide truffle on to skewer.
