5 Minute Protein Truffles

½ cup natural, unsweetened nut or seed butter (peanut, cashew, sunflower or tahini)

3 tbsp. honey, agave nectar or pure maple syrup

1/8 tsp fine sea salt

2/3 cup lightly packed all natural sweetened vanilla whey protein powder

  1. Mix the nut or seed butter, honey and salt in a medium bowl until blended. Add the protein powder, stirring until completely combined (mixture will be firm)
  2. Protein powders vary in terms of their dryness. Hence if the mixture seems too wet, add a bit more protein powder, or some ground oats or flax seed meal, until the mixture comes together like a dough. If the mixture seems too dry, add some milk (non-dairy or dairy) or water one tbsp. at a time, until the mixture comes together as a dough
  3. Scoop about 1 ½ tbsp. of the mixture into your hands and shape into 1”balls
  4. If desired, place one or more of the suggested coatings in small dishes, Roll each ball in the coating, gently pressing to adhere. Place the balls in an airtight container and store in the fridge.
