Vegan Chocolate Coconut Protein Truffles

Happy weekend girls!  As promised yesterday, here is the recipe for these delicious chocolate + coconut cheat treats.  This recipe is not my own, although I wish it was!  My gorgeous gf, Jenn, brought over a small batch of these delicious "ferrero rocher" type truffles that were all healthied up.  They lasted approx. 2 days in our house....we kind of liked them :)  So, so tasty and absolutely zero unhealthy ingredients!  They are extremely easy to throw together; the perfect weekend snack.  Enjoy! xx


1/2 c. almond meal
1/4 c. cocoa powder (I used organic, raw cacao powder)**
1/4 c. unsweetened coco shavings (I used raw cacao nibs)**
small handful of walnuts
1 scoop chocolate protein powder
2 tsp. coconut oil
1 tbsp. peanut butter
1 tbsp. sugar substitute (I used organic coconut palm sugar)**
unsweetened coconut flakes.


In a food processor combine almond meal, cocoa powder, coco shavings, walnuts, and protein powder until well combined.

Add in peanut butter, and coconut oil, and sugar substitute & pulse until thoroughly incorporated.

Roll into small balls, and gently coat the outsides with unsweetened coconut flakes.

Refrigerate for at least one hour before tasting.  

Store in fridge, or they can be frozen for up to 1 month.

**Since my obsession with eating as natural as possible is now bordering psycho territories, I substituted the ingredients marked with the asterix in an attempt to make these even more "clean".  You by no means have to use these exact ingredients, and in fact, Jenns version that she made me was a little tastier than my cleaner version.....**
