Valentine’s Day Protein Truffles Recipe

Happy (almost) Valentine’s Day!

I’m not really a Valentine’s Day person, since I prefer pull ups and burpees to sappy romance and greeting card holidays (anyone else?). However, I am a huge fan of chocolate—specifically dark chocolate—so I’ll use any possible reason to make something new that’s chocolatey and delicious.

These dark chocolate protein truffles are not only delicious, they’re also packed with protein and healthy fats and use only a small amount of natural sweetener for an extra boost of wow. Trust me, they’re at least 10 times better for you than any candy you’re going to buy at the store, and they’re so good you won’t even feel like you’re being deprived when you make them for your sweetheart (or yourself).

Dark Chocolate Covered Mocha Protein Bars

I don’t know about you, but I’m a big fan of chocolate, coffee, and protein. So putting the three together to create mocha flavored protein bars just seemed like a very logical—and delicious—idea.

Plus, since most store bought protein bars are loaded with sugar and uncool ingredients, it’s a better option to make your own whenever you can. And since these bars require no baking and are easy to throw together, you can make them whenever you’re in need of an easy, totally satisfying, protein-packed snack.

Dark Chocolate Protein Cupcakes With Peanut Butter Greek Yogurt Frosting

Who can say no to a cupcake?  

Actually, I can. Most cupcakes are loaded with sugar, flour, and unhealthy ingredients. And though I can never turn down a slice of homemade pie or a really good chocolate chip cookie—cupcakes are one of those foods that I’m pretty good at avoiding most of the time.

Until now. Because not only do these chocolate cupcakes have no flour or added refined sugar, they’re also full of protein and good carbs like oats. Their texture is moist and delicious, and can even be eaten for breakfast (as I just did), they’re so healthy.

And the frosting… mmm the frosting. The frosting makes these cupcakes go from pretty good cake to amazing cupcakes.

Decadent Holiday Gingerbread Protein Truffles


Love gingerbread around the holidays, but don’t like what it does to your waistline?

Yeah, me too.

I’ve always had a thing for gingerbread molasses cookies, cakes and everything else. But since most gingerbread treats are packed with butter and sugar, I do my best to avoid it (most of the time).

So that’s why, after going grocery shopping one day and avoiding the temptation to buy everything gingerbread in the entire store, I decided it was time to make a healthified version of my favorite holiday treat. I put together these protein truffles, and… whoa! I think these may just satisfy every gingerbread craving I’ve ever had.

Spicy and sweet, chewy but still soft, with a layer of dark chocolate on the outside, these gingerbread truffles are all the gingerbread you could ever desire.

And, since they’re packed with protein and contain no added sugar, you don’t even have to feel guilty about eating them.
