2-3 TBSP Coconut/Almond Milk

1/4 TSP Cinnamon
4 Squares Chirardelli Dark Chocolate 86%
(any dark chocolate - enough to coat each ball)

- Mix almond butter, flax, coconut flour and protein
- Slowly add coconut milk until taffy-like texture is reached (it can take a fair bit of kneading)
- In a bain-marie, melt chocolate
- Add chilli flakes and cinnamon to melted chocolate
- Roll batter dough into 15 balls
- Place balls on waxed paper
- Roll each ball in melted chocolate
-  Place chocolate covered ball back on the waxed paper

This recipe arose out of a need to bring portable protein snacks snowboarding! I wrapped the truffles individually with waxed paper, then aluminum foil. I kept them in a ziplock bag in my pocket. They were great!
