Chocolate Coconut Protein Truffles

Truffle Ingredients:

  • Chocolate protein powder, 60 g
  • Coconut flour, 3 tbsp
  • Unsweetened shredded coconut, 2 tbsp
  • Unsweetened cocoa powder, 1 tbsp
  • Organic stevia blend, 1 tbsp
  • Unsweetened almond milk, 2 tbsp
  • Coconut extract, 1/2 tsp

Coating Ingredients:

  • 60% cacao dark chocolate, 1 oz.
  • Coconut oil, 1 tsp
  • Unsweetened shredded coconut (optional)

Directions:

  1. Combine truffle ingredients in a small mixing bowl.
  2. Mix until a thick dough forms. Add a teaspoon of milk if the dough is too crumbly, or a teaspoon of coconut flour if it’s too sticky.
  3. Roll dough into eight 1-inch balls (1 tablespoon each) and place in the freezer on a plate.
  4. Melt dark chocolate chips and coconut oil using a double boiler. If you don’t have a double boiler, simply fill a small saucepan 1/3 to the top with water, nest a small metal mixing bowl (or another saucepan) inside and bring water to a simmer over medium heat. Stir chocolate as it begins to melt.
  5. Roll each ball in melted chocolate one at a time and immediately sprinkle with shredded coconut (if desired). Place in the fridge for 5 minutes to harden the chocolate. Enjoy!
  6. Store in the fridge up to one week or in the freezer up to one month.
