Protein Truffles


These protein truffles are filled with essential fats and are low in sugar, making them the perfect snack in between meals.

Protein Truffles

Ingredients:
  • 2 scoops of protein powder in chocolate or vanilla (I use Sunwarrior Vanilla)
  • 1/4 cup of sultanas or chopped dates
  • 1/4 cup of sunflower seeds
  • 1/4 cup of chia seeds (I used a mix of black and white)
  • 1/4 cup of LSA
  • 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 5 - 6 tablespoons of hot water 
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil or coconut oil
  • To coat: 2 tablespoons of cacao powder mixed with 1 tablespoon of stevia/extra chia seeds

Method:
  1. Mix together all the dry ingredients. Add the oil and a few tablespoons of water. Combine until the mixture starts to come together to form a dough. Keep adding water until the mixture is firm but not too sticky. 
  2. Roll the mixture into bite-sizes balls and coat with cacao mix and/or chia seeds.
  3. Let set in the fridge for at least an hour before serving.
