Author: Heather Mangieri, RDN


  • 1 cup vanilla whey protein powder
  • 1/4 cup almond flour
  • 1/3 cup almond butter
  • 1/4 cup almond milk
  • 1 tbsp dark molasses
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp all-spice
  • 1/12 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup white cohocolate chips (coating)
  • 1 tsp coconut oil (coating)
  • 1/2 tsp golden sanding sugar (decoration)


  • Combine the almond butter, protein powder, almond flour, molasses, almond milk, vanilla extract, salt and spices in a food processor and process until a thick dough is formed. If the mixture is too dry, add additional milk, 1 tbsp at a time until you get a smooth but thick, cookie dough consistency
  • Roll into 18 round truffles. Place in refrigerator to set. 
  • While that dough sets, prepare the coating. Combine the chocolate chips and coconut oil together in a bowl and melt in the microwave, stirring every 30 seconds until melted.
  • Roll the truffles in the melted chocolate, then place on Parchment paper. Sprinkle with gold sanding sugar then let harden at room temperature. 
  • Store in an air-tight container until ready to eat.


  • {NOTE}: The type of protein powder that you matters. I use whey protein powder, but there are even differences in the way the protein will react in the recipe even within brands. Adjust the liquid accordingly. The dough should be thick, so if your dough is crumbly, add an additional tbsp of almond milk until you get a smooth but thick, cookie dough consistency.
