Peanut Butter & Jelly Protein Truffles
Two things before I jump into this recipe:
1. We will soon be launching not one but TWO new ranges of exciting and delicious ready-to-eat Protein Pow foods! If you want to get a heads up the second we launch them, make sure you’re signed up to our newsletter (link here and below) and I’ll be announcing all our crazy news on there first:
2. Secondly, if you’re one of the thousands of people who check this website every day for new recipes, allow me to apologize for the fact that I have had the same ‘recipe of the day’ for more than a day sometimes on our homepage. Please know there are over 1.5K recipes on this website though (you can browse them by date here) so if you’re hungry for new content, please explore – and make – recipes from the archives as I doubt you’ve seem them all! You can, of course, expect more new and regular recipe content from me via the homepage once our products are launched. Until then though, keep checking both the recipe category page, homepage, and newsletter with gusto and I’ll shower you with food any/all ways I possibly can!
OK, now let’s talk about truffles: Peanut Butter & Jelly Protein Truffles to be precise. This recipe comes from the new Protein Pow cookbook (leaf over to page 70). The recipe is a homage to two of my favorite combos: peanut butter and jelly. Making these truffles is extremely easy, quick, and they’re absolutely delicious! Perfect for a mid-afternoon pick-me-up-treat or a snack when you’re feeling like something sweet but perfectly healthy, filling, and delicious.
3 tablespoons smooth peanut butter
1⁄4 cup whey protein powder (note, if you want to go veggie, use pea but please also add almond milk to the mixture and a bit more of the stevia to ensure your texture and sweetness level is just right)
4 tablespoons reduced- sugar strawberry jam
3 tablespoons coconut flour
1⁄4 cup oat flour
1–2 teaspoons liquid stevia drops or your sweetened of choice
1. In a medium-size bowl with a spatula, add all your ingredients together until you get a soft dough. If your dough is too wet or sticky, add a bit more of the coconut flour. If your dough is for any reason too powdery, add a tiiiiiny bit of almond milk or even water but when I say a tiny bit I mean a tiiiiiiny bit – a little goes a long way!
2. Roll your dough into 9 little balls.
