Recipe: Peanut Butter Protein Truffles
I have become a mad woman when it comes creating protein based food and I don’t hate it.
Especially on weeks like this past one when I stumble across probably the most delicious recipe known to humankind. I was standing in my kitchen trying to figure out what to make for this weekend because I wanted to make some travel snacks for Gatineau (I am headed there to visit friends and run the half this weekend with some local runners) and I ended up creating magic. It goes down in history as the simplest recipe ever but the secret ingredient is homemade peanut butter.
You read that correctly. I am not even sharing a recipe card for this one. All you do is buy 2 pounds of peanuts from your local bulk bins and throw them in your food processor for a while. I made 2 cups on Sunday night and my jar already looks like this between a combination of furiously eating it and all the baking I have been doing.
So once you have that, you need some protein powder. I am loving the Genuine Health fermented protein in vanilla because it tastes divine, works well with all of my baking and is easy on my stomach. I LOVE IT. If you are interested in trying some yourself, Goodness Me! is offering free shipping on EVERYTHING in their online store until midnight on Sunday night EST.
What did I dream up this week?
Peanut Butter Protein Truffles
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Ingredients (10 truffles)
- 3 TBSP honey
- 2/3 cup Genuine Health vanilla protein powder
- 1/2 cup homemade peanut butter
- 1 TSP Cocoa powder (for dusting)
Stir these ingredients together and try not to eat too much of the dough
Form into balls and dust with cocoa powder
Freeze for 2 hours
Seriously. These turned out even better than I could have imagined and I love that they can be used as a dessert, healthy travel snack or out on the race course or wilderness for fuel.
If you try them out, leave me a comment and let me know what you think.
Have an amazing Wednesday!
