5-MINUTE PROTEIN TRUFFLES

 

So easy, it’s almost not a recipe. The beauty of these bite-sized beauties is that they are totally customizable. Choose your preferred nut butter, protein powder flavour or topping – and make as big a quantity as you need!

Plus, they’re ready in 5 minutes, so no need to practice delayed gratification

 

Ingredients:

½ cup nut butter (peanut, almond, cashew or tahini all work well)

3 table spoons of brown rice syrup, honey or maple syrup

2/3 cup of whey or vegan Supreme Labs protein powder

Suggested toppings:

-       cacao nibs

-       shredded coconut

-       buckwheat nibs

-       crushed seeds

-       finely chopped dried fruit

-       matcha powder

-       chia seeds

 

 

Method:

1.     Mix the nut butter, honey and protein powder in a bowl or blender until bended. The mixture should be firm.

2.     If the mixture is too dry, add milk, one tablespoon at a time, until the mixture comes together as dough.

3.     Roll into 1-inch balls, and roll onto toppings if using.

4.     Pop in some Tupperware and refrigerate – or just smash a couple with a cup of tea.
