After Eight Chocolate Protein Truffles

Who doesn’t love devouring a box of chocolate truffles every once in a while? While that may not be quite so great for the waist, it’s definitely good for the soul.

However, thankfully these After Eight Chocolate Protein Truffles are a much healthier treat, free from refined sugars, and loaded with flavour and crunch.

Created with my favourite flavour of GoNutrition Whey Protein 80 (Triple Chocolate), these are a dream to make.

After Eight Chocolate Protein Truffles Ingredients:

1 cup medjool dates, pitted and chopped
1 cup chopped nuts
1 tbsp raw cacao
2 tbsp GN Whey Protein 80 in Triple Chocolate
1 tbsp almond or coconut milk
1⁄2 tsp peppermint extract
Handful dark chocolate chips or cacao nibs

Method:

1) In a food processor, blitz together the dates and nuts until they start to stick. Add in the cacao, protein powder, splash of almond milk and peppermint extract and blend until it forms a dough-like texture.

2) Fold the chocolate chips in, then roll into truffles (if your mix is too dry, add a splash more milk. Too wet, and add more cacao or protein).

3) Set in the fridge, before dipping in melted dark chocolate.

4) Enjoy your protein truffles!
