Recipe: 10-Minute Coco-Raspberry Protein Truffles

These little goodies are as easy on the eyes as they are to eat! With rich undertones of vanilla and nutty flavors from coconut and almond butter, the sweet-tart raspberry center is sure to get your attention.

They’re the perfect protein-packed treat for any age. And the best part is you can whip up chewy bites in just 10 sweet minutes!

Our protein truffles are gluten- and dairy-free, low sugar-impact, plus high in heart-healthy coconut oil, protein, and fiber – everything you need to roll steadily through your day. You can make a quick batch on Sunday, and be ready to grab-and-go on the fly during the week.

There are so many ways to customize this recipe! If the raspberry zing in the center isn’t your thing, try replacing it with a freeze-dried strawberry or  stevia-sweetened mini chocolate chips. You can also roll your finished truffles in crushed almonds or cacao powder instead of coconut.

Chocoholics can swap out the vanilla protein powder for chocolate or even mix in an extra tablespoon of cacao powder. The important thing is that you use a high-quality, clean protein powder (without whey, soy, sugar, or GMOs) to give these truffles the nutritional oomph you’re after.

Pro Tip:

Not all dried fruit is created equal! Be sure to choose freeze-dried over regular dried fruit because the freeze-drying process doesn’t concentrate the fructose in the same way that traditional drying does.

Freeze-dried also lets you skip that sugary hit that makes you crave more sugar later. It also helps you avoid common additives and preservatives like sulfites that are a common allergen and can provoke a histamine response.  (Read this blog to learn more about histamine in foods and what that means for you.)
