These Dark Chocolate, Orange and Almond Protein Truffles are sure to blow your mind!
Think of the most indulgent, snack sized treats that you can enjoy every time you pop into the kitchen or even take a bunch of them to work with you (But you might want to avoid this if you don’t want to share!)
Check out the recipe below…
1/2 an orange (seedless and peeled)
4 tbsps coconut flour
1/2 cup of chocolate whey protein powder (see Note below for subs)
3 tbsp cocoa powder
1/2 cup of ground almonds
1 cup of almond milk
2-3 pitted medjool dates (depending on how sweet you like them)
5 squares of dark chocolate
1. Blend all your ingredients together using a handheld blender or food processor.
2. Shape the batter into little balls or truffles. If your batter is too sticky, add a bit more cocoa or coconut flour until your batter has a soft and malleable consistency.
3. Melt your dark chocolate in a bain marie (a glass bowl on top of a pot of boiling water).
4. Cover your truffles in melted chocolate, add some grated orange on top, and refrigerate for an hour or two.
5. That’s it!

Note: If you want to use unflavoured whey protein powder, you can. Just make sure you sweeten your batter by adding some kind of sweetener or an extra date or two.
