Spiced Pumpkin Protein Truffles

With Halloween around the corner, it’s time to break out the pumpkin recipes.


With Halloween around the corner, it’s time to break out the pumpkin recipes.

For me, this equates to anything that involves pumpkin pie spice. It’s one of my all-time favourite spice mixes so I had to inject some into this healthy pumpkin protein truffle recipe.

Pumpkin pie spice is usually made up of sweeter spices such as cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, allspice and cloves. You can buy pre-made pumpkin pie spice mix, but it’s so easy to make your own if you have the spices at home. If you happen to already have a pumpkin pie spice mix on hand, you could use about two teaspoons of that in the recipe instead of the individual spices.

The spices give these truffles a beautiful deep flavour. I also added some Bare Blends Vanilla Bean WPC for a hit of protein and the vanilla bean adds another delicious element. I finish the truffles off with a drizzle of dark chocolate.

Ingredients

Optional coatings

Directions

1. Add the almonds and sunflower seeds to the food processor and blitz for one minute. 2. Next, add the remaining ingredients, and blitz thoroughly until the ingredients have combined and formed a ball. 3. Using your hands, roll little truffle sized balls of the mixture. I made about 20. 4. Once you have rolled them all, pop them in the fridge. If you are coating them in the spiced-cacao coating, mix together the cacao and spice, and roll each truffle in the mixture. 5. If you are feeling extra fancy, drizzle them with the melted white chocolate. You could also add a few drops of peppermint extract or freeze dried raspberries to the truffle mix for extra festivity feels. They keep well in the fridge or freezer in an airtight container.
