Take a Hike with Quick 5-Minute Protein Truffles

I love to go hiking and take snacks along the dirt trail me with. Cliff Bars are great, trail mix, protein bars, etc. I found a nice recipe for quick 5-minute protein truffles. When can you go wrong with truffles? Like, never. 

Quick 5-Minute Protein Truffles

  • ½ cup unsweetened nut or seed butter (such as peanut, cashew, sunflower, or tahini)Protein Truffles
  • 3 tbsp. honey, agave nectar, or pure maple syrup
  • Dash fine sea salt
  • 2/3 cup lightly packed sweetened vanilla whey protein powder
  • Coating(s) of choice: mini semisweet chocolate chips, unsweetened cocoa powder, shredded coconut, finely chopped nuts or dried fruit, matcha tea powder, or quick rolled oats

Mix the nut-butter, honey, and salt in a medium bowl. Add protein powder, stirring until completely combined (it will be firm). Because protein powders vary in texture, add a bit more powder if mixture feels too wet and some milk (or water) if it feels too dry; you want dough-like consistency. Scoop 1½ tablespoons of dough and shape into 1-inch balls. Place one or more of your preferred coatings in a shallow dish and roll balls in coating, pressing lightly to adhere. Pack in zip-top bags and refrigerate until ready to go (pack in cookpot or plastic container to prevent squishing).
