Dark Chocolate Protein Truffles

//Dark Chocolate Protein Truffles

I recently posted this recipe on our other blog, but it was so yummy I wanted to share it with all of our BURSTClub readers.  I hope you will get brave and try it!  Don’t be afraid of the avocado or dates in this recipe!  The avocado gives it a creamy, mousse texture and the you won’t even know there are dates sweetening these truffles!

If you’re like me, a sucker for dark chocolate, you’ll love these!  Try them out and let me know what you think!!!



Dark Chocolate Protein Truffles


  • 2 cup walnuts or cashews
  • 1 cup Medjool dates, pitted
  • 1 small Hass avocado, cut into small chunks
  • 2 Tbsp. raw honey
  • 1/3 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • ½ cup cocoa or cacao, unsweetened
  • 3 Tbsp. protein (we use Shaklee chocolate or vanilla protein)


Optional Toppings:

  • pinch of salt
  • shredded coconut
  • cocoa nibs
  • sesame seeds
  • chia seeds
  • finely chopped nuts
  • finely chopped dark chocolate pieces


  1. Place the nuts and dates in a food processor and pulse for 1-2 minutes, until finely chopped and the mixture begins to stick together.
  2. Add remaining ingredients to food processor and pulse until well blended. The fudge “dough” should stick together and be moist.
  3. Remove fudge from food processor and form into a ball.  Then break off small chunks and roll into about 15 small balls.
  4. Roll the balls in the toppings of your choice (or sprinkle if using sea salt).
  5. Once rolled, place the balls in the fridge so the coconut oil can firm up.
