Below is a recipe that will be sure to satisfy any sweet cravings that you may be having!
1/8 cup whey protein
1/8 cup ground hazelnuts (could also use ground almonds)
1 tbsp almond milk (enough to bind the ingredients into a dough)
2 tbsp chocolate nut butter spread
5 whole baby pretzels
5 chopped baby pretzels
5 squares (50g) dark chocolate
1. In a bowl, combine the whey protein, ground nuts (hazelnuts or almonds), chopped pretzels, chocolate spread and a tiny bit of milk.
2. Mix into a dough. If your dough is too sticky, add a bit more of the ground nuts to dry it up and make it malleable. If it’s too dry, add a tad bit more of the milk.
3. Divide into 5 balls.
4. Melt your dark chocolate and coat the balls in the dark chocolate.
5. Top with a tiny pretzel.
6. Refrigerate for a couple of hours or leave in the fridge for 20 mins or until the chocolate sets.
Macros per truffle (out of the five you get from the ingredients above): 97kcals, 4g protein, 6g carbs and 6g fat.
Note: Do note that the macros of your truffles with depend on the kind of chocolate spread you use. You can go with one that is low in protein and obviously your kcal will go up, sugars will go up, and your protein will go down. Or you can go with a no-sugar-added spread that’s high in protein and (relatively) low in sugar. If you want, as well, you COULD just use plain unflavored nut butter for this and some cocoa powder. Just bear in mind you’ll want to add some kind of sweetener to your mixture. Something like vanilla or toffee stevia drops would be fantastic or any kind of sweetener you like best to be honest. You can also mush in some dates in there for sweetness! Just play with the idea and have fun with this one.
