Vegan Oreo Protein Truffles

5 Jun

These little snacks are the sort of thing that vegans and non-vegans alike, will love. They are ideal to bring to a BBQ or to have out on a picnic.

You will need:
2 packets of Oreos
1 can of good quality coconut milk
2 tsp vanilla essence
90-100g pea protein powder
100g 85% dark chocolate

 

Method:

Place the coconut milk in the fridge overnight. This helps to separate the fat (coconut cream) from the water. Once it’s separated, do not shake it up.

Place the can upside down and open it with a can opener. Remove the water (you can keep it for a smoothie or put it in soup.)

Place the coconut fat and vanilla in a bowl and using a whisk beat it for 5 minutes until it gets creamy.

Place the Oreos in a food processor and blend until they become like breadcrumbs, add the protein powder and blend for 2-3 seconds.

Pour the Oreo mix over the coconut cream and mix to form a dough.

Using a double boiler melt the chocolate on a low simmer.

While the chocolate is melting, roll the Oreo mixture into a ball and chill in the freezer for 10-15 minutes.

When chilled, roll into the chocolate and refrigerate.

Perfect to bring to a picnic or party! Everyone will be amazed they are vegan and will want more. Also a perfect accompaniment to a cup of coffee.

Enjoy, Eoin.
