Peanut Butter Protein Crunch Truffles

Good evening everyone, yes your reading the title right! These were invented for the upcoming storm surf swell at the weekend finally some surfing waves coming my way. I always reach for a little something on my way back home to fill a gap before my next meal. These will be ideal and i can't wait for everyone to try them, they have already been pretty popular today in the house, hopefully there is going to be some left for the weekend. 

Lets dive straight into what your going to need for these truffles, super easy to make and really indulgent. If of course you wish to leave the dark chocolate stage out (why would you do that) you can of course eat them naked and just enjoy the peanut butter goodness. 

Makes around 16 balls;
1/2 cup peanut butter 
1/4 cup protein powder (vanilla is great but can be plain)
1/4 popped cereal (i used popped quinoa you could use rice etc)
1tbs maple syrup 
50g of dark chocolate for dipping/coating 

Mix peanut butter and maple syrup together until combined. Then mix in the protein powder this should then make a sticky dough add in the popped cereal and distribute in the dough. Roll into balls, melt chocolate and dunk balls into chocolate and place in fridge for 15 minutes. Enjoy! 

I hope you enjoyed this recipe, as always if you do decide to make this make sure to tag me over on social media! I love looking at your recreations, until next time, Helen xx

Double Chocolate Brownie Cookies

Hi guys, thought i would pop on here to say hello! sorry i have been a little MIA on here the past few months, there has been a lot going on in my personal life. Now lets move on to the reason you are here, these cookies right? I mean who doesn't want a soft fudge-like cookie oozing with chocolate chunks, a slight fluffy centre and slightly crunchy outer layer. Is is a brownie is it a cookie? I will let you all decide for yourselves, either way there are so delicious! Makes 8 thick cookies 

What you need; 
1/4 cup dairy free butter
1/3 cup coconut sugar 
1/4 cup rice malt syrup 
1tbs flax + 4tbs water (left for ten minutes)
1/3 cup coco powder 

3/4 cup buckwheat flour 
1/2 cup plain GF flour 
1/4tsp baking powder 
1/4tsp baking soda 
50g dark chocolate chopped into chunks 

Mix the butter, sugar and rice malt syrup together. Add in the flax egg and combine. Add in all the flour, coco powder, bp and bs form into a sticky dough. Add in your chocolate chunks  and divide into 8 equal balls, if your want your cookies a little flatter and less cake/fudge like give them a little flatten. Bake for 8-10 minutes at 180fan, leave to cool for 20 minutes before digging in. Enjoy! 

I hope you enjoyed this recipe, if you do decide to make this make sure to tag me over on social media. I absolutely love looking at your recreations!
