Ingredients

Truffles

230g (1 can) of black beans, drained
50g Carb Killa® spread, Milk Chocolate
60g Hydra 6® protein powder, Chocolate Charge
20g coconut flour
5g dark cocoa powder
40g granulated sweetener (or your sweetener of choice)
1 tsp vanilla extract

Decoration

Melted white chocolate to coat
5g coconut oil

Method

1) First, drain and rinse the black beans
2) Next, place the black beans, the Carb Killa® spread, vanilla extract and sweetener in a large food processor and blend until it's mixed into a smooth consistency
3) Add in the protein powder, cocoa powder and coconut flour and blend until a soft 'dough' is formed
4) Then, take the 'dough' out of the bowl/blender and wrap in cling film. Place in the fridge for 30 mins to chill and firm
5) Once firm, divide the 'dough' into approximately 16 balls and place them onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Place back in the fridge to set
6) While they set, melt your white chocolate - you can use a bain-marie to do this. Add the coconut oil to the melting white chocolate and stir until smooth
7) Once the chocolate has cooled slightly, coat the set truffles in the chocolate. Place the truffles back on the parchment paper and into the fridge for 10 minutes or until the chocolate has set
8) After your truffles are set, use the left over melted chocolate to stick on the edible sugar eyes. Drizzle any leftover chocolate over the top of the truffles to finish
