Easy, decadent, and healthy! These grain-free, dairy-free, and refined sugar-free Peanut Butter Vanilla Protein Truffles with Chocolate Ganache are the perfect treat.Truth be told, I am not a fan of protein powders. We’ve just never really “mixed well” together. I’d try different blends in smoothies and they always left a grainy feel in my mouth. Not really what you’re going for when you’re downing your morning smoothie.

But I believe that sometimes it’s a good idea to try again. Your taste buds change, what your body needs changes, and plus, trying again helps keep you from being too picky.

So when Sunwarrior sent me a sampling of their raw vegan protein blends, I was determined to find a satisfactory way to include them in my diet. And this simple dessert goes beyond satisfactory. It’s pretty dang good.

These grain-free, dairy-free, and refined sugar-free Peanut Butter Vanilla Protein Truffles with Chocolate Ganache are the perfect treat.Most people add their protein powders into smoothies, and as much as I love smoothies, I have plenty of those on my site, so I decided to go for something a little less traditional.

Dessert.

Thankfully, it’s that wonderful time of year when it’s acceptable to be thinking about everything dessert, so I decided it must be a sign that I was supposed to make something sweet out of the protein powders. 

As soon as these little beauties came out of the freezer I began drooling over them. Adding the ganache drizzle made them almost irresistible during our little photo shoot.

Why? Because you have to wait so dang long to eat the food! Moral of this side note: learn to shoot photos faster.)

Easy, decadent, and healthy! These grain-free, dairy-free, and refined sugar-free Peanut Butter Vanilla Protein Truffles with Chocolate Ganache are the perfect treat.When I handed a finished product to my husband (my ultimate taste tester) he announced: “I love protein powder!” And as I was editing the photos, my 8-year old peeked over my shoulder and reminisced, “Ohhh, those were soooo good! I wish you’d made more of them.”

I guess that means my protein powder comeback dessert was a success. 😉

If your relationship with protein powder has been on the down and out (like mine), I’d encourage you to give Sunwarrior’s blends a try. All their blends are made from rich, raw, plant-based protein sources and boast a complete amino acid profile.

And, of course, give these Peanut Butter Vanilla Protein Truffles with Chocolate Ganache a try. I can guarantee you won’t regret it! 😉

  1. I have to say, I put protein powder in a medley of things. Chia pudding and smoothies are top–but brownies, gluten-free, are ace with the protein!

    Great giveaway, and recipe, Raisa!

    CJ

  2. Oh my goodness! I saw these on Full Plate Thursday and had to come by and say how amazing these look! I’m really loving that chocolate drizzle – so perfect!

  3. These look so good. I haven’t stocked protein powder in the pantry for a few years, but maybe I’ll add almond meal to these instead. Yum!

    1. Thanks, Jelli! Almond meal might work, or even cocoa powder, since it has more of the same consistency as protein powder. I hope you like them either way! 🙂

  4. Yes, total protein powder lover. My fave way to use it is in “ice cream” for instance I will combine frozen cherries, protein powder, stevia, a little ice cold water and some stevia sweetened vegan chocolate chips in my Ninja and pulse it until the cherries are broken down and it has an ice cream consistency.

  5. I have to be honest, I have never tried protein powder, Raia, but this looks like a wonderfully delicious way to start! Thank you for sharing your Peanut Butter Vanilla Protein Truffles with Chocolate Ganache with us at the Hearth and Soul Hop. Your photographs are beautiful!

  6. I don’t use protein powders but my husband and son do–especially after a run or ride. They like to put it in smoothies.
