Want a dessert with benefits? Yes, there is such a thing! These truffles are kind of like a healthful peanut butter cookie dough that’s coated in cocoa powder. The “dough” of these truffles is packed with protein; it contains a creamy base of chickpeas, peanut butter and plant-based vanilla protein powder.



1. Rinse and drain chickpeas well. Add well-drained chickpeas, protein superfood powder, coconut nectar (or agave nectar), coconut oil, salt, and almond extract to a food processor. Cover and puree until extra creamy, about 2 minutes. Add the peanut butter and blend until well combined, about 1 minute.
2. Roll mixture by hand into 16 balls, about 1 slightly-rounded tablespoon each, and place onto an unbleached parchment paper-lined baking sheet.
3. Add the cocoa powder to a small bowl. Roll each ball in the cocoa to coat. Chill in the refrigerator until firm. (Note: When truffles are at room temperature/slightly warmed due to the blending in the food processor and rolling by hand, the cocoa coating can become partly darkened/moistened, creating an interesting marbleized effect! If you prefer a more even cocoa coating, re-roll in cocoa after chilling the truffles.)
4. Store in the refrigerator. Box up as desired for gifting, keeping chilled.
