Matcha Chocolate Protein truffles

IMG_0006Little bit more experimentation with Matcha going on. What with all its wonderful anti-oxidant and metabolism boosting properties, I would be mad to not try and include it in more things. It also brings a great flavour to bakes.

This time I was focusing on creating a very LOW carb treat. I began carb cycling this week as phase 4 of my diet, so I wanted to make something so low carb that I could still incorporate a treat into my diet that fitted my macros. SUCCESS!


 

Ingredients

  • 80g Natural Peanut Butter (I use Muscle Foods)
  • 30g Vanilla Whey protein powder
  • 1 tbsp Unsweetened Almond milk
  • 25g Ground almonds
  • 5g Matcha Green tea powder
  • 20g TPW Zero Syrup Dark chocolate flavour (could replace with other flavours or Walden farms)
  • 20g Dark chocolate chips
  • 10g Chia Seeds
  • Cocoa Powder to dust

Method

  1. Such a simple method, just add all the ingredients into a bowl making the last ingredient the almond milk, and just add enough to form a dough.
  2. Roll the mix into 12 balls and roll each ball into cocoa powder.
  3. Leave to chill and enjoy!
