Home made truffles sounds quite technical right? Well actually it’s one of the most simple things to make! If you are new to baking with protein or baking at all, then I really recommend starting with this one. Rich and chocolatey, but ridiculously low in fat and calories, these truffles contain quality whey protein and have a subtle coffee kick thanks to the real Coloumbian coffee in TWIST’s delicious espresso protein drink. This makes them the perfect mid morning or mid afternoon pick me up, whilst also helping you hit your protein quota!
Prep: 10 mins
Yields: 10 truffles
30g Chocolate protein powder
30g Peanut flour
5g Unsweetened cocoa (plus a little extra for coating)
2tbsp Cold espresso
1In a bowl, mix together the chocolate protein powder, peanut flour, cocoa and stevia. You want this fully combined before adding the coffee.
2Stir everything together until it forms a crumbly mixture. Then get your hands in and knead the mixture until it forms a dough.
3Divide the mixture into six and roll them into balls.
4Roll the balls in a little extra cocoa and put them into the fridge to chill for at least an hour. I suggest using a Tupperware container or covering them with cling film to stop them drying out.
