The meal is over and you’re completely stuffed. Of course, you could probably squeeze in something sweet if you wanted – and if it was worth it. Sure enough, these truffles are just the right treat. The double-chocolate flavor and creamy fudge feel is everything you could dream of in a rich dessert. But it’s the natural protein powder and whole grain groats that make this indulgence an easy choice. No matter how full you are, there’s always room for a chocolate protein truffle.
