We hope you enjoy these easy high protein chocolate peanut butter truffles too!
As I mentioned before, I coated these high protein truffles in white chocolate. White chocolate truffles are so pretty…but feel free to coat these in dark chocolate or milk chocolate if you prefer. The dark chocolate has the least amount of sugar.
Here is where I am kicking myself. I didn’t take any pictures of us making these. I was fine through the cocoa powder and peanut butter, but as soon as I whipped out the white chocolate to melt, the vultures had arrived. My family hovered over the dipping process, trying to stick fingers into the chocolate, sneak tastes, etc!
(*I received a bag of peanut flour and cocoa powder from Anthony’s Goods, one of my favorite companies. They have a ton of amazing products, most of which are even gluten free! All opinions are my own.)
The stars of this easy truffle recipe are the peanut flour and cocoa powder. Add in my favorite gluten free vanilla protein powder and peanut butter, and you have a delicious high protein snack that kids and grownups will love.
