A final recipe for National Chocolate Week for you - Birthday Cake Protein Truffles. Just because, well, why wouldn't you?
These deliciously-simple truffles take all of 5 minutes to whip up, yet are utterly delicious. They're the perfect treat to enjoy when you fancy something something sweet and chocolatey - maybe even cakey (I know that's not a word) - but don't want the hefty calorie and sugar count that goes with it.
BIRTHDAY CAKE PROTEIN TRUFFLES
1 scoop vanilla protein powder (I used Sci-Tec Direct)
1/3 cup Sukrin coconut flour
3 tbsp Sukrin zero calorie icing sugar
2 tbsp coconut milk
1 tbsp melted butter
1 tbsp honey
1-2 drops Capellas cake drops
50g sugar-free white chocolate
1 tsp Lucy Bee coconut oil
1) In a large bowl, mix together the dry ingredients, then stir in the wet. Test the mixture and add some more icing sugar, if you want it sweeter. If the mix is still a little sticky or sloppy, stir in a touch more protein powder, then shape into truffle-sized balls. Place in the fridge or freezer to firm up.
2) Once your truffles are set, gently melt together the white chocolate and coconut oil, then stir to combine. Dunk each truffle into the white chocolate to coat, then decorate with sprinkles. Leave to set once more, then enjoy!
