NO-BAKE PALEO CHOCOLATE PROTEIN TRUFFLES


Jump to Recipe

If you’re looking for a fun treat to make this Valentine’s Day, look no further! These no-bake truffles are not only super easy to make, but are secretly packed with protein and 100% paleo-approved. You need just nine ingredients to make these chocolate truffles which are dipped in a dairy free chocolate coating and topped with sea salt. I used RSP Nutrition Chocolate Avocollagen for the protein in this recipe, but you can use any chocolate collagen.

No-Bake Paleo Chocolate Protein Truffles Ingredients

Almond Butter: For best results, you’ll want to use a creamy almond butter for this recipe. I recommend using an almond butter with just one or two (salt) ingredients. If you have an allergy, you could also use any other kind of nut butter, but there will be variations in taste.

Coconut Cream: I always like to use full-fat canned coconut cream for recipes that call for coconut cream. I chill the can in the refrigerator and use the hardened top half as the cream for this recipe (you may need to microwave to unharden it). If you don’t have canned, you can use a carton of coconut cream.

Coconut Oil: Alongside the coconut cream, coconut oil adds moisture to the truffles and also helps get that truffle-like texture when chilled in the refrigerator. Be sure to melt the coconut oil completely before adding it to the bowl.

Cocoa Powder: I recommend using an unsweetened cocoa powder for this recipe that you can find at any grocery store. The cocoa powder packs in a ton of chocolatey flavor and goes a long way. When combined with the chocolate collagen, the dry ingredients will correctly match the wet ingredients.

RSP Nutrition Chocolate Avocollagen: The protein in these protein truffles comes mainly from the chocolate collagen. I love RSP Avocollagen because it has great taste and low sugar. You can use my code JENN15 for 15% your order! If you don’t have chocolate collagen, you can replace it for extra cocoa powder.

Coconut Sugar: Coconut sugar is the sweetener in this recipe and works perfectly for getting that texture you want. While I have not personally tested it, I think date sugar would work as well. You can find coconut sugar at most grocery stores.

Salt: I’ve included a bit of salt in the actual truffles mixture but the best is topping off the truffles with flaky salt after they’ve been dipped in the melted chocolate. It makes for an amazing bite that has sweetness and saltiness!

Vanilla Extract: Vanilla extract adds a bit of vanilla flavor to the truffles but isn’t necessary if you don’t have it on hand. Feel free to omit or use another extract for other flavors. I think using peppermint extract in this recipe would be super good!

Dairy-Free Chocolate Chips: Melted dairy free chocolate chips mixed with some coconut oil makes for the best coating for the truffles. If you don’t have a preference or allergy, feel free to use regular chocolate chips. To keep the recipe paleo, try a chocolate like Hu Kitchen brand.


How To Make No-Bake Paleo Chocolate Protein Truffles

Step One: In a large mixing bowl, combine the melted almond butter, coconut cream and 2 tbsp of the melted coconut oil. Whisk the mixture together until its completely uniform and one color.

Step Two: Add the cocoa powder, collagen, coconut sugar, salt and vanilla to the bowl and whisk again, until there are no clumps and the mix is a thick consistency.

Step Three: Place the bowl in the refrigerator and let chill for at least 30 minutes, until the mix is hardened and extremely thick. Remove from the refrigerator and use a tablespoon or cookie scoop to form the mix into balls. If needed, use your hands to roll them into spheres.

Step Four: Add the dairy free chocolate to a microwave-safe bowl with the remaining tablespoon of coconut oil and microwave in 30-second increments until completely melted.

Step Five: One at a time, drop the truffle balls into the melted chocolate to completely coat them and place on a sheet of parchment paper.

Step Six: Transfer the coated truffles back to the refrigerator for 15-30 minutes, until the chocolate is hardened. Enjoy immediately or refrigerate for up to five days.
