These Protein truffles are organic and sweetener free, they’re a must try! The recipe is down below…
39ml cartooned coconut milk
16g of whey protein powder
9g coconut flour
12g chia seeds
21g buckwheat groats
36g medjool dates
10g cocoa powder
5g coconut sugar
1. In a food processor, blend all ingredients together until you get a paste that you can roll into balls – or truffles – using your hands. If your mix is too wet or sticky, add a bit more of the coconut flour. If it’s too crumbly, add more milk (by the tsp – you don’t want to end up with a soup here).
2. Melt 1/2 bar of dark chocolate (in a bain marie – a glass bowl on top of a pot of boiling water).
3. Dunk the truffles in there and place them on a tray lined with either tin foil or baking paper.
4. Stick them in the freezer for 9-10 minutes or until the chocolate sets.
Macros per truffle (out of four decent-sized ones): 160kcals, 7g protein, 18g carbs (out of which 4g is fibre so net carbs: 14g), 7g fat.
Please note that the reason these truffles are higher in carbs than protein is because we sweetened them with dates and coconut sugar. If you want to lower their carb content, just sub the dates with stevia (or toffee flavdrops) and add some seed or nut butter to bind the mix together.
