When it’s not your birthday but you want cake, you toss a bunch of ingredients into a bowl and hope for the best. At least that’s what I do. Just kidding, there is some method to my madness but in this case there was a lot of luck involved.

I don’t always get so lucky and have my creations turn out perfectly on the first try. These truffles are pretty darn close to perfect.

I used Leaner Creamer to sweeten my truffles. If you can’t find Leaner Creamer you can replace this with coconut sugar or a baking stevia.

I used PEScience Select Gourmet Vanilla protein powder because it tastes like if an ice cream cone and a cupcake had a baby in powdered form. Get 30% off use code PBCHOCO.

Healthy Cake Batter Protein Truffles

Healthy little bites of cake batter that will satisfy any sweet tooth!

Ingredients

    Truffles
  • 2 scoops vanilla protein powder (I used PEScience Gourmet Vanilla 30% off code PBCHOCO)
  • 2 tbsp. coconut flour
  • 2 tbsp. all natural sugar-free maple syrup or sticky syrup
  • 2 tbsp. coconut oil, melted
  • 2 tbsp. sweetener (I used Leaner Creamer, see notes for substitutions)
  • 1.5 tbsp. unsweetened almond milk
  • sprinkles
    Vanilla Coating
  • 1/2 scoop vanilla protein powder
  • 3 tbsp. water
  • 1 tbsp. coconut oil, melted
  • 2 tbsp. sweetener (I used Leaner Creamer, see notes for substitutions)

Instructions

  1. In a bowl, mix together your protein, coconut flour and sweetener.
  2. Stir in melted coconut oil and syrup.
  3. Stir in almond milk, you may need to add a half tablespoon more depending on the type of protein you use. You don't want your dough to be too thick or too dry. Think cookie dough.
  4. Separate your dough into 7 evenly sized balls and place them in the freezer for 5 minutes while you prepare your coating.
  5. For the coating, mix together the protein powder, sweetener and warm water. Stir in your coconut oil until complete incorporated. Be sure to add the coconut oil last or the consistency will not be correct.
  6. Remove truffles from the freezer and dip each on the coating using a fork. Let the excess drip before placing on a piece of parchment paper.
  7. Garnish with sprinkles if desired.
  8. Place in the freezer for 5 minutes before serving.
  9. Best if stored in the freezer and then thawed a few minutes before consuming.

Notes

You may replace the Leaner Creamer sweetener with coconut sugar, baking truvia or baking stevia, macros will change.
