This recipe is great for when you have a really sweet tooth but don’t want to spike your blood glucose levels. Each truffle is about 80 calories and has 6 grams of protein and less than 1 gram of sugar! Try making them for when you next have friends visit. I used vanilla flavoured protein powder but if you’re nuts about nuts, try using peanut butter flavour or choc/peanut flavoured protein powder.
Coffee chocolate protein truffles
½ cup carb free vanilla (or plain) protein powder
1 cup almond meal
½ cup cocoa powder
1 tbspn toffee or caramel flavoured stevia drops
1-2 shots fresh coffee
1 block Lindt 90% cocoa chocolate (melted) mixed with 2 teaspoons stevia powder
½ cup chopped peanuts and matcha powder for decoration
Combine protein powder, almond meal, cocoa powder and stevia drops in a mixing bowl. Add just enough coffee to combine ingredients so that the mixture is firm and can be rolled into balls. Refrigerate or freeze for about an hour before dipping into melted chocolate then rest one side into the chopped peanuts or matcha powder for decoration and crunch then allow to set on a tray covered with baking paper until set. Refrigerate again until ready to serve (makes about 20 truffles).
