Protein Truffles Recipe

One of my favorite things to do is open my fridge or pantry, see what I have and try to come up with a new recipe.  This weekend I had some down time so I did just that and made these really easy and healthy Protein Truffles. The perfect on the go snack!

Protein Truffles

This recipe is for about 5 servings and each serving packs 12 grams of protein and is a great source of potassium, calcium, fiber and iron.

Ingredients:

  • 10oz Pitted Dates
  • 2 Scoops Protein Powder (I used Dymatize ISO 100)
  • 1/8 Cup of Old Fashioned Oats
  • 1T Local Honey
  • 1t Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2t Cinnamon (or to taste)
  • 1oz Good quality chocolate chips
  • Water

Combine all ingredients in a food processor, add tiny amounts of water to desired consistency. Should be very sticky.  Once all combined, roll into balls, about 1-2 Tablespoons each and should make roughly 15 balls.  Feel free to sprinkle goji berries or seeds on top, I had pumpkin seeds so I put some on top.  Put in freezer for an hour and enjoy! Keep in freezer and take out right before you eat them.  They won’t get frozen hard, they will stay a perfect chewy consistency.

Enjoy!

Protein Crepes

So, I had made this really cool step by step video on how to make these and then my phone decided to tell me I needed an update and I accidentally clicked yes in the middle of making these crepes and lost my video.  Either way, they are amazingly easy to make so no video needed!

Ingredients:

  • 3 Egg whites (or roughly 1/2 a cup)
  • 1 Scoop Protein Powder
  • Dash of cinnamon
  • Local Honey
  • Filling of choice

Combine egg whites, protein powder and cinnamon in a bowl and mix well.  Place a small pan on the stove at Medium heat and pour about 1/3 of the mixture in the center of your pan.  Then swirl the pan around in circles until the batter fills the whole bottom.  It should be pretty thin.  These cook quickly so as soon as it is slightly brown on the bottom, flip over to cook the other side.

Fill with your fruits of choice, I did banana and strawberry.  Then drizzle with some local honey.

Enjoy!

Sweet Potato and Lentil Soup

I have a confession to make.

Lentils used to scare me.

I never knew how to cook them or really even what they were.

So I did some research and was pleasantly surprised at what I found.  They are from the legume family and are packed with protein (about 30% of their calories). Lentils are also a great source of iron, phosphorus, copper, fiber, folate and manganese.

Next up, I needed a recipe. I could not find one online that I loved, so I mixed a combination of recipes into this one, easy (super delicious) recipe!
