RAW Protein Truffles

RAW Protein Truffles

Yields 22 to 44, depending on size

Ingredients: (use organic)

1/3 cup raw coconut butter
4 Tablespoons (about 1 heaping scoop) Garden of Life RAW Protein, vanilla flavor
2 Tablespoons chia seeds
pinch of pink Himalayan sea salt
3 teaspoons 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


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. 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 Tablespoons 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.
