I love these Peanut Butter Protein Truffles because they are super easy to make and are amazingly delicious and good for you. These are a great dish to take to a party or a small get together with friends. Trust me, you will be the hero of your get together with these delicious truffles. I may or may not also make these for the kiddos for an afternoon snack too. They have become one of my guilty pleasures I just cannot stop making!

There are very few ingredients for this recipe and clean up is so easy. What’s not to like?

I start off by mixing everything in a mixing bowl with a handheld mixer or my stand mixer and then I roll all of the mixture into small balls. I then melt the chocolate in my Instant Pot, and then drizzle all of the yummy chocolate on the balls. There are all kinds of different foods you could put on top of them. I also like coconut and peanut butter. Skies the limit on what you could put as the outer coating. After that, I store them in my freezer for 10 minutes and then put them out for everyone to enjoy.

I highly recommend doubling the batch if you want any for the next day because they will be gone before you know it! I’d love to know what you topped your Peanut Butter Protein Truffles with.  Be sure to leave a comment with all of your delicious topping recommendations!

Peanut Butter Protein Truffles

Print Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup organic peanut, almond, or sunflower seed butter
  • 3 tablespoons 100% pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup dairy-free chocolate chips
  • 1/2 tablespoon extra virgin coconut oil
  • unsweetened coconut flakes optional but recommended

Instructions

  • In a bowl combine the peanut butter and maple syrup using the whisk attachment for a hand or stand mixer. Whisk until the mixture turns into a cookie-dough like consistency.
  • Divide mixture and roll into 16 balls. Line them up on a cookie sheet or a plate lined with parchment paper.
  • In a separate bowl combine the dairy free chocolate chips and the coconut oil. Microwave for 60 seconds, then whisk. You can use your Instant Pot as a double boiler to melt the chocolate.
  • Using a fork carefully place a peanut butter ball in the bowl with the chocolate and coat it. If you decide to use the coconut flakes, I highly recommend this, transfer to another bowl with a couple tablespoons of coconut flakes and gently coat. Repeat this process until all the balls are coated.
  • Place in the freezer for 10 minutes before consuming. Store in the refrigerator.

    1. Trish, I’ve made them with natural peanut butter, I just added a scoop of protein powder to get the right consistency and they turned out great!!

        I made them with natural peanut butter. They were super soft (I had to keep them in the freezer until it was time to eat, then eat immediately). I’ll try with regular peanut butter, or adding protein powder (like Sarah suggested) on my next batch!

  1. I’m nit seeing nutritional info— how many grams of fat.. calories… carbs especially !!
    These taste phenomenal !!

  2. Just so you know, the chocolate and coconut oil is AMAZING to make chocolate covered strawberries!!!

  3. If I we’re to use fresh ground peanut better I need to add a scoop of protein powder per batch? I’m thinking of doubling the recipe to have on hand in the fridge/ freezer.

    These are the bomb!!! They are similar to peanut butter balls my mom used to make but less work, better ingredients and much better! I highly recommend these if anyone loves Reese’s peanut butter cups- you’ll love these! What a great alternative substitute and so much healthier than chocolate. 😍🙌🏼

    I used natural peanut butter, adding about 2Tbsp vanilla pea protein and it was still soft, so I put the bowl into the freezer for 30 minutes or so. Rolled nicely, then dipped and froze again. Kids loved them after school with a side of fruit. Next time I might half the maple syrup if I’m dipping since the chocolate chips sweetened them plenty.

    Hi-I made these and they are fabulous!!!! Can you reccomend a protein powder? I would like to add protein but not sure which powder is a good one 🙂 Thank you!!!

    1. Hi Jan-Marie, I have only tested these truffles with peanut butter protein powder so I do not know how they would turn out if you add protein powder to them.

    1. Hello Suzanne,
      Thank you for reaching out! I do not include the calorie count or nutritional information on any of my recipes. All ingredients have different nutritional information so it will always vary depending on the exact ingredients (brands) you’re using. If you need to track nutritional information it’s best to calculate it for each recipe with your own ingredients into a program like MyFitness Pal because it can vary A LOT.
      Wish you all the best!
