Chocolate PB Protein Truffles

I’ve been on the hunt for some delicious protein balls but it seems that every time I make them, they end up chalky or really high in fat from all the peanut butter.  I stumbled across @GraceFitUK’s recipe and after reading some of the reviews, decided to test them out.  To my surprise, they weren’t chalky and actually tasted like truffles!  I made some minor adjustments to her recipe to tailor it to my likes but it’s pretty darn close.  Below is the recipe I used.  Please let me know if you try this recipe out and how you like it!

Ingredients:
120g Chocolate Peanut Butter Unico Nutrition Protein Powder (code “LAURA” for 15% off)
50g almond flour
40g cacao powder
1/2 tbsp cinnamon
Almond milk
Shredded flakes

Directions:
Mix protein powder, almond flour, cacao powder and cinnamon together.  Gradually add in almond milk until mixture is fully coated and wet.  This is usually about 1/2 – 1 cup. Roll dough by the tablespoons into balls and then into shredded coconut.  Once coated, place the ball on a wax paper lined cookie sheet and repeat.  Place balls in refrigerated until set.  Once set, store in air tight container in fridge.  Makes approximately 20 balls.
