Vegan Protein Chocolate Truffles

Vegan and protein rich dessert and…. HEALTHY?! Yes! Rich in fiber from black beans and dates with no added refined sugars (excluding the chocolate topping). This is a healthy treat you can enjoy with out the guilt. 

 

 

The protein powder I used in this recipe is called Garden of Life Vanilla Organic Raw Protein Powder, although if you want an extra chocolatey taste use the chocolate variety. Please note that each protein powder brand will have a slightly different flavour and texture. Genuine Health Fermented Protein Powder and Iron Vegan Sprouted Vegan Protein Powder are other brands I also recommend.

 

 

Pumpkin seed butter is used in this recipe for a nut-free option but you can also replace with almond or peanut butter if you can tolerate nuts. Sunflower seed butter is another great nut -free butter option that can be found in your local natural food store.

 

 

This treat is great for diabetics who are watching their sugar intake if you exclude the chocolate topping. 

 

The best way to indulge in these treats is to have them at room temperature, they are a soft and gooey texture but not too chewy. Store in the fridge or freezer and thaw at room temperature before consumption.
