Instructions
  1. Combine strawberry whey and coconut flour.
  2. Add in mashed strawberries, and mix well. You'll need to use your hands as the dough comes together.
  3. If the dough it too sticky, add a little coconut flour. If it is too dry, add another mashed strawberry.
  4. Set the dough on a sheet of parchment paper.
  5. Form into 6 balls, and set in the freezer to cool. (This will make the chocolate set more easily.)
  6. Mix chocolate ingredients until smooth.
  7. Remove truffles from the freezer.
  8. Using a fork, dip each truffle into the chocolate, covering it completely. Then place back on parchment to set. Depending on how warm (and hence thin) your chocolate is, you may have extra chocolate. If so, refrigerate the truffles for a few minutes and then dip in chocolate again.
  9. Before the chocolate sets, top with crushed freeze-dried strawberries (optional, not included in macros).
  10. Refrigerate to set.
  11. Enjoy!
Notes
A note about substitutions: You can replace the whey with casein protein, but you'd probably need less coconut flour (or more strawberries). I don't think vegan proteins would work well here.
The macros for plain truffles (no chocolate coating) are:
Prot: 6g, Carbs: 4g (1g fiber, 2g sugar), Fat: 1g, Cal: 44
Plain truffles would carry well (wrap in parchment and then in a ziplock, or in a small container).
