Sweet Popeye Truffles

 These Sweet Popeye Truffles are simple, sweet, and perfect fuel before and after workouts. Try packing them for a healthy snack in your kid’s lunch box :-)


  • 1 cup raw almonds
  • 1 1/2 cup oats
  • 3 ripe bananas
  • 2 cups fresh spinach
  • 3 TBS cocoa powder
  • 2 serving of your favorite protein powder (we used Vega Sport Performance Chocolate)
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
* Unsweetened shredded coconut for garnish

My new favorite plant based protein – Vega Sport Performance Chocolate


Place all ingredients in a food processor fitted with the S blade, and process until the mixture forms a ball. DO NOT over process! Dough will become too soft. (If that happens add 2 TBS of raw oats and refrigirate for 30min before forming into balls)

Form into 3/4-inch balls and roll them in shredded coconut until evenly coated all over.

Store in a fridge or freezer.

Makes 30 truffles.
