The secret ingredient to making this snack protein packed are the chickpeas which, make these protein cookie dough truffles perfect any time of day, especially when paired with a cup of coffee for a pre-workout snack!



Ingredients / Truffle

Vanilla protein powder: 1 scoop

Canned chickpeas (unsalted and cooked): 3/4 can

Coconut sugar (or low-carb granulated sweetener): 1 tbsp.

Coconut flour: 1 tbsp.

Chopped dark chocolate (or dark chocolate chips): 1 square

Ingredients (optional topping)

Dark chocolate: 2 squares

Directions :

  1. In a food processor, mix all ingredients together except for the chocolate chips. Mix until you’ve formed a paste or dough. Taste the cookie dough to make sure it’s sweet enough! If not, add more sweetener.
  2. Add in the chocolate chips. If your mix is too sticky, add a tiny bit more of the coconut flour—just a half teaspoon at a time—until you get your desired consistency.
  3. If you want to coat your truffles, melt the dark chocolate and dunk your truffles before placing them on an aluminum-foil-lined tray. Set in the fridge for a couple of hours before serving.
