These are quick and tasty treats that satisfy hunger cravings and guarantee energy.
All you need to make these delicious lil’ truffles is 4 ingredients:
1 cup vanilla whey protein
1/2 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
1/2 cup coconut flour
1/2 cup unsweetened almond/coconut milk
*2 TBS dark chocolate melted
*smidge of coconut oil on hands to form truffles
*1/4 cup Cacao Nibs
1st step: roast the coconut flakes until it browns nicely. Set it aside to cool.
2nd: mix your protein powder with coconut flour (you can sub this with almond, oat or quinoa flour, these flours can be eaten raw). Add the coconut flakes.
3rd: add the milk of your choice, I prefer the almond milk. You want a consistency that will bind the ingredients together.
4th: shape into various balls.
5th step is optional: Coat or dunk the truffles in melted dark chocolate. I melted dark chocolate morsels in a glass bowl in microwave and stirred every 10-15 sec. until melted.
Put in refrigerator for 20 min or longer and Enjoy! 😁
This is a batch I made w/out the chocolate and instead I used Cacao Nibs.
Cacao (ka·cow) is the raw, unprocessed form of chocolate. These untreated seeds are nutrient packed and can even be considered a superfood! Cacao beans offer a wealth of antioxidants and essential vitamins and minerals so I throw them in my healthy baked goods all the time.
Here are just some of the benefits that make Cacao a Total Superfood!
- Magnesium and other essential minerals including calcium, sulfur, zinc, iron, copper, potassium, and manganese
- Beautifying: extremely high in antioxidants to protect cells from premature aging.
- Vitamins: B1, B2, B3, B5, B9, E
- Essential heart-healthy fat: oleic acid a monounsaturated fat
