Get all the tools to take your physique into your hands. Over six-months, you’ll transform your life, mindset, and body in this program that’s part-course, part-coaching, and part-community.

Last week, I grabbed lunch at Whole Foods. We were on the verge of “hangry,” so a couple of treats ended up in our shopping basket, including a box of Better Bites, a “top 8 allergen-free” treat from a bakery located in Austin, Texas. This post is not sponsored in anyway; Kerrie had just heard they were good, so, of course, we needed to see what they were all about. I mean, taste-testing new healthy products is all part of the job!

Well, the “Sun Better” bites were 8 million times better than I expected them to taste. I’m not even kidding you, I probably said, “Ohmigod, these are so good” like 10 times while eating one, which is another awesome thing about these little treats. They’re actually a good size, so they’re not gone in a single bite. You truly have a chance to enjoy it, which also inspired my Chocolate-Covered Peanut Butter Protein Truffles recipe below. I wanted to make a tasty treat that is rich and wonderful, but not gone in a hot second.

In addition to being a substantial treat, these Chocolate-Covered Peanut Butter Protein Truffles are so ridiculously easy to make. They only call for 6 ingredients (and you could probably skip the vanilla extract if you really wanted to) and most of them you probably already have in your kitchen. I’ve made these truffles again and again – in large part because of their fast factor, but also because they’re a legit dessert. I typically feel satisfied after eating just one. Plus, they are endlessly customizable by switching up the peanut butter with another favorite nut butter, protein powder and extract flavors, kind of chocolate coating you use, or by giving them a tasty coating of sprinkles, cocoa powder, or chopped nuts. The possibilities are endless!

And, finally, these little bites of heaven have an awesome macronutrient breakdown with 5g of protein, 8g carbs, and 10g of fat, which means they’ll easily “fit your macros” without blowing up your day. I hope you guys love these Chocolate-Covered Peanut Butter Protein Truffles as much as we do. They’re definitely a treat that’s here to stay in our house!

Chocolate-Covered Peanut Butter Protein Truffles

5 from 1 review




  • 1/4 cup protein powder of your choice (both chocolate and vanilla work well)
  • 1/4 cup smooth (salted) peanut butter (I highly recommend Teddie)
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 tsp coconut oil, melted
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract

Chocolate coating

  • 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 1/2 tbsp coconut oil



Combine ingredients for filling in a small mixing bowl until fully blended. Divide batter and roll into 6 balls. Refrigerator balls for 2 hours until firm. In a separate microwave-safe bowl, add chocolate chips and coconut oil. Heat in the microwave in 30-second intervals until chocolate is fully melted and then stir until smooth. Roll balls in melted chocolate and then place on a plate/tray with wax paper. Place plate/tray in refrigerator and allow chocolate to harden before enjoying. Try not to eat them all at once! 😉
