Here’s another easy, delicious, healthy, vegan, gluten free recipe from my friend at Bunny’s Bite.
Black Beans and Spirulina (a superfood) might not sound so delicious but combined with the chocolate, it just melts in your mouth.
Plus each truffle has 3 grams of protein – something you don’t usually find in a dessert!

Chocolate Mint Spirulina Protein Truffles
Place the black beans, maple syrup, coconut oil, vanilla and peppermint extract in a food processor and process until smooth (not all of the black bean skins will break down, that’s okay!).
Using a spatula, scrape the mixture into a medium sized bowl. Add the cocoa powder, protein powder and spirulina. Mix with rubber spatula until fully combined.
Place mixture in the freezer until somewhat firm, about 20-30 minutes.
Remove from the freezer and roll the mixture into balls (1 tbsp worth). Place on a parchment paper lined baking sheet.
Cover and place back in the freezer to chill for 30 minutes.
Melt dark chocolate in the microwave or broiler style. Set aside to cool slightly.
Remove the truffles from the freezer after 30 minutes. One by one, use two spoons or forks to hold the truffle and dip into melted chocolate. Transfer the dipped truffles back to the prepared baking sheet.
Place back in the freezer for just a few minutes to firm up, or transfer to the refrigerator a little while longer to firm up.
Keep refrigerated and enjoy!
