    Choc Strawberry Truffles: High Protein, No added Sugar, Gluten Free

    This is the follow up to my choc-orange truffles which tasted amazing. These choc-strawberry truffles are also high in protein, are naturally sweetened from dates and contain no gluten.

    INGREDIENTS

    • 1 egg whisked
    • 2 tbs of flaxseed meal
    • 1 205g punnet of strawberries
    • 90 grams of chocolate whey protein isolate
    • 1 handful of dates
    • 1/2 cups to 1 cup of desiccated coconut (depending on texture)
    • 1 punnet of strawberries, half chopped, half blended into liquid
    • 1 tsp of raw cocoa powder
    • 6-8 squares of dark chocolate 70% or better
    • 1 tbs of coconut oil
    • 1 stevia tab

    METHOD

    • Crack one egg in a bowl and whisk
    • Add flaxseed meal, 1/2 cup of coconut and cocoa powder to bowl
    • Take dates and place in food processor with 1/2 cup of hot water
    • Blend until dates are a paste like consistency
    • Chop half of strawberries and add to bowl
    • Add remaining strawberries and blend in a blender until it’s a liquid type consistency then add to bowl
    • Add date paste to bowl and stir well
    • If mixture is too dry, add another egg
    • If mixture is too wet, add more desiccated coconut
    • The consistency should be sticky and gluggy but not dry or wet
    • Place in freezer for around 20-30 minutes
    • After approximately 25 minutes, take dark chocolate squares and coconut oil and place in a bowl then heat in microwave for approximately 1 minute or until melted
    • Add 1 stevia tab to chocolate mixture and stir then pour melted chocolate onto baking paper
    • Remove truffle mixture from freezer
    • Grab another plate and cover with baking paper
    • Using a tablespoon, portion out mixture and roll into balls with your hands
    • Once you have made a ball, drop it in the melted dark chocolate roll it around until it’s covered
    • Place each ball into the new plate with clean baking paper
    • Place back in the freezer for another 30 minutes or until ready to serve
    • Keep truffles in freezer otherwise they will go soft in fridge
