Almond Butter Protein Truffles - The New Go-To Dessert

Updated: Aug 4

As I learn more about macronutrients and pay attention to how they affect my body, I have found ways to incorporate more protein into my diet. I prefer to get most of my protein from plant sources, and sometimes that means using protein powder. I have a sweet tooth especially after dinner, which has inspired making healthy sweets out of protein powder! Here is an easy recipe for a decadent treat, without sugar.

Almond Butter Protein Truffles

Makes 12 truffles, or 4 servings


Ingredients:

1/2 cup vegan protein powder (or whey, see note)

1/4 cup chocolate chips (can substitute this for other flavored chips or dried fruit)

1/4 cup chopped walnuts (or other chopped nuts)

1/4 cup oat flour or quick oats

1/3 cup almond butter (can use peanut, cashew, etc.)

2 - 4 Tbsp almond milk***

1 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp cocoa powder (optional)

2 tsp maple syrup (optional)

Pinch salt


***Whey protein powders will need less almond milk.


Directions:

Combine all ingredients except the almond milk. Mix.

Slowly add the milk, a tablespoon at a time, until a cookie dough consistency forms. The dough might look crumbly or dry, but it will hold shape once formed into balls.


Spray a small baking sheet with olive oil (or use parchment paper).

Roll the dough into 12 small balls with your hands, and place onto the baking sheet.

Freeze for 30 minutes. They are ready to eat! Store these in an air-tight container in your refrigerator and enjoy for up to a week.


Experiment with other mix-ins, such as chia seeds, cranberries, shredded coconut, and more!

Nutritional information may be different based on the protein powder you use or other substitutions.
