You guys are going to love these if you LOVE chocolate, but also want to stay on track.   These have saved me from eating bad at night!  Give them a try.  It is the perfect snack to “indulge” in.

Makes 11

4 Tbsp Coconut Flour

2 Scoops Johns Killer Cacao Protein

1 Tbsp Cocoa Powder

1 Tbsp Coconut Shreds

3-5 Drops Coconut Stevia

6 Tbsp Vanilla Almond Milk

15 Ghirardelli Dark Chocolate Melting Wafers

1. Mix all ingredients together, besides the dark chocolate

2. Once mixed, take a spoon to grab a little mixture at a time, and roll in a ball with both hands.  Each ball should be about 1/2 inch.  This makes 11, but it depends on how big you want yours. Once done, set aside.

3.  Take all 15 chocolate wafers and melt in a bowl in the microwave for about 1-1/2 minutes.

4. Once melted side aside.  

5. (optional) Grab another bowl and pour about 1-1/2 tbsp coconut shreds for the topping.

6.  take each ball and roll in the chocolate, then to the coconut shreds.

7. Once done, put all protein truffles in the fridge and let cool for about 5 minutes before enjoying!

SOO good you guys!

I like to make double the batch as a meal prep and just have them on hand!  It really is so nice to have and you get your protein in for the day!

CHOCOLATE PROTEIN CAKES

Processed with VSCO with c2 preset

I was testing out a way I could make something delicious and with chocolate, so these protein cakes are simply amazing!  You will be so surprised how good they’re and most importantly you will feel guilt free.   They are packed with protein.  

So just look at it this way, you are basically making your own clean protein bar from home.  No added sugars!

Makes 3.

1/2 cup Almond Flour

1 cup Almond Milk 

1 tbsp Cocoa Powder

1 scoop Chocolate Protein Powder

2 drops Coconut Stevia

1 Ounce Dark Chocolate Discs

3 Cupcake Cups

Coconut oil spray or Light Olive Oil Spray

Optional: 1 Tbsp Coconut shreds

 

  • Mix all ingredients together.  If you need to add more almond milk for consistency, then you can.  Should be creamy.  
  • Spray each cup with oil, then pour mix into each cup evenly.  Place in freezer for a couple minutes.
  • Meanwhile, melt the chocolate in microwave or stove top until creamy.  
  • Take the protein cakes out, and pour 1/2 tbsp onto each protein cake. (Optional: sprinkle coconut shreds on each cake)
  • Place the cakes back into the freezer for 10-15 mins.  

 

They should be a little hard, if you want to eat them like a bar of chocolate, then peel back the cup and enjoy! 

If you want to eat them a little softer, place in the fridge for a 3-5 minutes before eating.  Will be slightly sticky, so you can eat with a fork if you would like.  

SO good!
