2 tablespoons almond butter
1 cup chocolate protein powder (I used Orgain© vegan protein powder)
¼ cup cacao powder
1 tablespoon stevia
1 tablespoon almond or coconut milk (add a few drops more if needed to form balls)
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons coconut oil
5 tablespoons maple syrup
½ cup unsweetened coconut flakes and more for coating
Mix all ingredients together and form into 1 inch balls. Coat with coconut flakes and refrigerate.
Looks like a truffle, but it’s another sweet treat with protein powder
Why I like these: They satisfy my sweet tooth and have 6 grams of protein per ball. They have great fat from the almond butter and coconut oil and are free of processed sugar and gluten.
