Black Forest Protein Truffles

Another under 100kcal recipe!

Inspired by the chocolate cherry dessert, black forest gateau, these rich, gooey protein balls are a delicious healthier alternative to a chocolate bar or cake!

Serving - Makes10 balls

Macros per ball:

71kcal / 5g protein / 7.6g carbs / 2.3g fat / 1g fibre


50g dried black cherries (I got mine from Asda)

30g oats (regular or gluten free)

40g chocolate OR vanilla protein powder (I actually use vanilla as I think it makes the mix sweeter)

20g unsweetened cocoa powder

30g "Choc Shot" syrup (found in hot chocolate section of supermarket)

25g almonds


1. Soak cherries in boiling water for 10-15 minutes (or until soft, plump & squidgy).

2. Place oats & almonds in blender/food processor & blend into "flour".

3. Add all remaining ingredients & 2tbsp of the cherry water.

4. Blend until mix sticks together, spoon out & roll into balls.

5. Place in fridge for 30mins to harden.

6. Eat! :-)

Tip: The mix may be very sticky when first blended. To avoid messy fingers pop it in the fridge for 15 minutes before rolling into balls.
