Ingredients

Bottom Cake Layer

1/2 a chocolate protein cake or approx 5-6 chocolate protein muffins or any mixture of protein cakes you want about approx 200-300g of Cake (this will really depend on the cake you use) Here is a chocolate cake by Elkie or here is a chocolate cake by me

40g Lightest Cream Cheese (3%Fat)

20ml of almond milk

10g Vitafiber syrup can use any syrup

Peanut layer

20g Peanut Flour

10g Coconut Flour

10-20ml almond milk

10g Peanut Butter

 Few drops of liquid sweeter (stevia) optional

Cookie and Cream layer

20g Cookie and Cream protein powder or Vanilla Protein powder

10g Coconut Flour

10-20ml almond milk

1 crushed Oreo

Few drops of liquid sweetener (stevia) optional

Coating

80 sugar free dark chocolate

8g melted coconut oil 

Method

1.Break up the chocolate cake into a large bowl so it resembles breadcrumbs

2. Add the cream cheese and mix it into the cake crumbs

3. Add the syrup , then slowly add the milk until the mixture comes together to form a dough.

4. Divide the dough into smaller pieces, I made 20 mini from my cake mixture. This will depend on how much cake you used and how big/small you want the truffles to be.

5. Roll the divided pieces into balls and place on a lined baking tray in the freezer for 20 minutes.

6. Meanwhile make up your peanut layer , add the ingredients of the peanut layer into a small bowl and slowly add in the milk bit by bit until it comes together into a soft dough. You may not need all the milk or if its too wet add a little more peanut flour to the mixture , You should be able to form a soft dough.

7. Now divide the mixture into about 10 pieces. Repeat the process for the cookies and cream layer but add in the crushed oreo at the end, Also divide mixture into 10 pieces

8. Take the semi frozen cake truffles out of the freezer. Now place your peanut dough onto a piece of cake truffle and shape into a square, repeat for the remaining peanut dough. Do the same for the cookies and cream dough . when you have finished place the truffles back into the freezer for another 20 minutes .

9. Start to melt the chocolate and coconut oil over a water bath, the coconut oil helps thin the chocolate and gives the chocolate coating a nice sheen.
10. Take the semi frozen truffles out of the freezer . Prepare another baking tray with baking paper and coat each truffle with the melted chocolate . I found that it was easier place the truffle on the fork and spoon the chocolate over, that way you don’t end up using too much chocolate all at once as you can shake off the excess gently.

11. Place on baking tray and leave to set in the fridge. You can freeze these truffles or it will keep in the fridge for a week (if it lasts that long lol ) The macros will vary depending on cake used, type of chocolate etc

It’s almost 90 degrees here in Wisconsin. For us northerners that is WAY too hot! Not used to this heat at all after we go through 6 months of freezing temps! The oven was broke for the last 2 weeks but I still wanted to get some recipes made up for the site, but with this heat maybe it was for the best not to do any baking anyway. Looking through my recipes I definitely needed to get more no bake recipes together anyway, so it was perfect timing. With only 7 ingredients, and very little heat source, these Salted Caramel Truffles would be perfect for an afternoon snack with very little heat needed!

Ingredients:

  • 28g Coconut Flour
  • 2 Caramel Cubes
  • 1 Scoop Salted Carmel or Vanilla Protein
  • 1-3 oz 0 cal pancake syrup(optional)
  • 14g Coconut Oil
  • 1oz 0cal Caramel Syrup(optional)
  • 14g Dollop Gourmet Salted Caramel Frosting

Instructions:

  1. Grab a Bowl and place in the coconut oil, microwave until melted.
  2. Next proceed to add in the remaining ingredients minus the frosting.
  3. Mix all ingredients well until a dough like substance is formed.
  4. Once dough is formed, make into 6 even sized balls. I placed these in the freezer for 15 min just to help bring everything together.
  5. Next, place your frosting in the microwave until it melts.
  6. Remove truffles from freezer and evenly coat each one with the frosting.
  7. Lastly I used some 0 cal caramel syrup and drizzled over each one. Place back into fridge to store.

IMG_20151104_215910Hey guys!

 

I know, I am sure you thought I was dead…. but in fact I am not. I have just been super busy with work, training, baking, and anything else that can get fir into there.

I made these “truffles” I will call them awhile back and haven’t been able to get them on here. You could also describe these as oat balls, or hell whatever you choose! I wasn’t 100% happy with these so I figured I would share and you guys can give them a shot! Maybe you will love them!

 

Let us Begin,

What you will need:

40g oat flour

30g chocolate protein

70g Pumpkin

11g Chocolate sugar free fat free pudding mix

1 serving of your favorite peanut butter( I used mocha and toffee flavors)

30g Honey

2 Stevia Packets

14g semi sweet chocolate chips

Favorite Coffee Grounds ( I used Alphamind. Go check them out and use “Rhine” to save 20%

 

All you need to do is mix everything together, other than the chips and coffee grounds(although you could put a bit of grounds in the mixture if you would like). Once everything is combined throw in the freezer for at least 15 minutes so you can use it.

Take the mixture out and roll it into even balls. I ended up 16 total balls. Now take your chips and melt them down. Once melted take each ball and dip it in the melted chocolate. Once its dipped sprinkle some coffee grounds over the top before it hardens.

(Oat flour is just ground up oats)

 

There you have it! All done! these would make for a great pre workout snack!
