My breakfast routine changes a lot. I don’t mix it up every day, but stick to one thing for months until I’m over it. I’ll have several weeks of smoothies and eggs, then months of rice porridge with yogurt, then granola in smoothies, and (currently) sweet potatoes with coconut butter, apple butter and sausage. Protein is pretty much the only common denominator; I feel better when I start the day with a balanced meal.
Because I’ve been feeling a bit trapped inside from the snow, I’ve been making a point to exercise in the morning before work. I eat my full breakfast at work, but in the car between the studio and the office, I’m starving. These protein truffles are the perfect post-workout portable snack; full of healthy fat, protein and easily digestible carbs.
I don’t eat protein powder every day, but when I do, I’m super picky about which ones I eat; my favorites, aside from pure hemp protein, are Vega and Sunwarrior. I tested a couple of different powders with the protein truffles and I like Sunwarrior’s classic protein (vanilla and chocolate) best for this recipe.
