10g fat




1 cup almonds 

1 cup cashews 

1 cup roasted peanuts

2 scoops (60g) True Plant Protein in Rich Chocolate

2 espresso shots (I used 2 x Nespresso pods)

  1. Add the nuts to a food processor and process for a couple minutes, scraping down the sides occasionally. The nuts should form a fine flour and be almost ready to form a nut butter.

  3. Add in the cacao nibs and blitz until combined. The batter should be moist and sticky. 

  4. Form into balls and store in the fridge.
