Black Onyx Protein Truffles
I made these truffles for the first time a couple of years ago (here’s that post) and have, since then, made them multiple times! They’re really good, almost like oreo-filled truffles because of the onyx I used inside. Now, if you don’t have black onyx, don’t worry. You can use regular cocoa powder too! If you do want to give black onyx a go though, you can get it here in the US (it’s where I get mine). Whichever cocoa you choose to go with, try this recipe! It’s super easy, quick, fun and yum-yum-yummmm: delicious. Here’s the video I posted on our Instagram. Below it is the full recipe and macros!
1 tablespoon Black Onyx cocoa powder (read Note below for subs)
1/4 cup ground almonds
1/2 teaspoon vanilla sweetener (I used vanilla stevia drops but any would do)
1/8 cup whey (I used our gorgeous unflavored one)
1 tbsp almond milk
3-4 squares 85% dark chocolate
1. In a bowl, mix all of the above ingredients except for the dark chocolate and milk. Bind everything with the milk, little by little, until you get a moldeable dough. Add 1 tsp at a time to ensure your mix at no point becomes runny. You want a play-doughy type of dough you can roll with yours hands.
2. Roll your dough into four balls – or truffles.
3. Then, melt the chocolate in a bain marie (i.e. a glass bowl on top of a pot of boiling water). You COULD melt the chocolate in the microwave too but a bain marie melts it more evenly and ensures the chocolate doesn’t burn.
4. Once the chocolate has melted, dunk the truffles in there to coat them. Use your hands or a spoon!
5. Transfer them to the freezer for 30 mins of the fridge for an hour and… KAPOW! They’re ready to deliver the most intense cascade of nommage your tastebuds have ever had the pleasure of experiencing.
