Walnut Truffles





     Two of my favorite foods are Nuts and Chocolate, but my most favorite is Nuts and Chocolate all in one bite.  Hence the Walnut Truffles are born!  These unassuming spheres are so packed with goodness, you will have a hard time comprehending their nutritional value when you experience that first bite!  Each one ounce Truffle is only 120 calories, 4.3g net carbs and 5.3g protein.  Ya know those after dinner cravings that hit like a freight train to the tenth power, here in lies the solution to satisfy without derailing your calories for the day.  So filled with rich decadence, just one will do ya!



Ingredients for 14~1oz Truffle:
1/4 cup Nut Butter (sub with Coconut Oil)
4oz Lily's Stevia Sweetened Dark Chocolate Premium Baking Bar
Dash Vanilla
Dash Cinnamon
Dash Salt

1/4 cup Cocoa
3 scoops Dark Chocolate Collagen Whey Vital Proteins (vitalproteins.com)
3/4 cup Walnuts, broken in pieces

     Melt first set of ingredients in microwave safe bowl for 30 seconds, stir til melted and thoroughly combined, heat for additional time if necessary.  Stir in Cocoa and Whey til well incorporated, then fold in 1/2 cup of the Walnuts.  Add remaining Walnuts to baggie and roll with rolling pin to crumble.  Weigh out 14~1oz balls and roll in crumbled Walnuts, set in fridge to chill.  These can get hard after chilling, so rest on counter for softer product if desired.  Enjoy  :)
