I love incorporating clean, plant-based protein powders into my recipes and today I want to share with you a new one I was recently introduced to which I used to make these Raw Vegan Apricot and Date Protein Truffles.
I used Sunwarrior Classic Plus Organic Plant-Based Protein (Vanilla) and it's made with everything you want in a plant-based protein powder:
- Vegan Protein Blend: Organic Pea, Organic Brown Rice, Organic Quinoa, Organic Chia Seed, Organic Amaranth
- Organic Vanilla Flavor
- Ancient Sea Salt
- Organic Guar Fiber
- Organic Stevia
One serving boasts the following:

- 4 mg / 20% dv of iron
- 38 mg / 60% dv of vitamin C
