Recipe Flashback: RAW Protein Truffles

Posted by: Garden of Life on Monday, February 11, 2013

We love this RAW Protein Truffle recipe from Brittany and Julie of We{Heart}Vegan. If you are looking for a great healthy treat to share with your Valentine's this year, this is a great recipe to do just that!

 Why Garden of Life RAW Protein truffles? This is why Brittany and Julie love our RAW Protein:

- The source of protein comes from an organic and raw blend of sprouts including sprouted brown rice, amaranth, quinoa, millet, buckwheat, garbanzo bean, lentil, adzuki bean, flax seed, sunflower seed, pumpkin seed, chia seed, and sesame seed (17 grams of protein per serving)
- The powder contains live probiotics and enzymes
- There are no fillers, artificial flavors, or synthetic nutrients
- On top of this, the protein powder is USDA organic, raw, vegan, gluten free, dairy and lactose free, contains no isolates, artificial sweeteners, or preservatives

   

Raw Protein Truffles

 

Yields 22 to 44 depending on size

 

1/3 cup raw coconut butter
4 Tbsp. (about 1 heaping scoop) Garden of Life RAW Protein, vanilla flavored
2 Tbsp. chia seeds
Pinch of pink Himalayan sea salt
3 tsp. raw maca powder
1/3 cup raw sunflower seeds
1/3 cup raw pepitas
1/3 cup raw walnuts
2/3 cup raisins
2/3 cup dried cranberries
1 cup raw nut butter
About 1 cup coconut flakes to roll the truffles in

 

Directions:

 

In a food processor, combine the coconut butter, protein powder, chia seeds, salt, maca, nuts, seeds, and raisins. Process this into a nearly fine meal. I have a small food processor so I did this in a couple batches. Once processed, transfer to a mixing bowl.

 

With a spoon, combine the protein/nut mixture with the raw nut butter and cranberries. Stir well to incorporate.

 

Mold the truffles into balls (about 2 Tbsp. per truffle) using your hands then roll in coconut flakes. Set aside onto a plate or tray. Once all the truffles are rolled and covered in coconut, place in the refrigerator to set.

These truffles are great at room temperature or chilled (they’re a little harder when they’re cold). Enjoy guilt free at any time of the day.

I would blend it with coconut milk and maybe a banana, and put it in the ice cream maker with the chocolate chips to make ice cream. Read More
