If you're a fan of my Healthy Snickers Bars, you're gonna love this recipe!
If you know me, you'll know that I am absolutely obsessed with creating healthy little "treats" that taste delicious, and can also satisfy my sweet tooth. Before I created these guys, my Healthy Snickers Bars had been "that thing" for a while. (They're definitely still one of my all-time favourite healthy treats!) But, since we all have a little more time on our hands while quarantined at home, I wanted to see if I could increase the protein content in these chocolate-covered treats and still make them taste as delicious.
Behold, my Salted Peanut Butter Protein Truffles.
I'll be honest... I didn't manage to increase the protein by very much. Even though I added two scoops of Garden of Life's Sport Plant-Based protein, it only seemed to increase the overall protein (per serving!) by one gram compared to my snickers bars. Regardless, the result is a sweet lil' peanut butter & chocolate flavour bomb that tastes great and is also MUCH lower in sugar (5g as opposed to 11g per serving) than my Healthy Snicker's Bars - which helps to reduce the spike in blood sugar that eventually causes even more cravings soon after you eat a high-sugar treat.
10/10 would recommend. Give these a try for a delicious after-dinner or pre-workout snack!
