Raspberry Truffles

With Valentine’s day coming up I decided to make these yummy raspberry gems. I’ve made a similar version to this before without protein powder but I love trying to create a healthy treat with an extra protein boost so I altered my old recipe and they turned out great! See the recipe below.

RASPBERRY TRUFFLES

INGREDIENTS:

Truffles:
• ½ Cup old fashioned oats
• ½ Cup raw cashews
• ⅔ Cup Slightly thawed raspberries
• 1 Scoop (30g) LeanFit CompleteGreens protein powder
• 1 Tbsp Maple syrup

Chocolate Coating:
• 140g Dark Chocolate, chopped
• 1 Tbsp Coconut oil

METHOD:
Set raspberries out to thaw for about 15 minutes. In food processor add oats and cashews and process until little bits. Add protein powder, slightly thawed raspberries and maple syrup, process again until you get a paste like texture. Line a cookie sheet or flat surface with parchment paper and using a small cookie scoop or tablespoon portion out truffles onto parchment lined dish. Place in freezer to set for about 30 minutes. Combine your chocolate over double boiler and melt, stir in coconut oil until melted and remove from heat. Remove truffles from freezer, if needed roll slightly with hands to smooth out ball shape. Coat each truffle with chocolate and place back onto parchment lined dish, sprinkle with freeze dried fruit or chopped nuts if desired *see note. I used freeze dried pomegranate seeds chopped up. Drizzle with extra chocolate if desired. Can be stored in fridge or freezer (If storing in freezer, allow 20-30 minutes to thaw before serving). Yield 18 truffles.

*NOTE: If you would like to sprinkle with freeze dried fruit or nuts make sure as soon as you coat 1 truffle in chocolate sprinkle prepared topping onto chocolate before it hardens.
