CHOCOLATE PROTEIN BARS
It's no secret that I LOVE CHOCOLATE. I love it, I love it, I love it. If it were appropriate to sit in a bath filled with it, I would lather it all over me, and die a happy woman.
This healthy protein bar recipe will have ya drooling, I promise!
What you need:
2 cups of coconut flakes
1/4 cup cacao nibs
1/2 cup protein powder (of choice)
2 tablespoons cacao powder
1/4 cup coconut sugar
1/2 cup desiccated coconut
1/4 cup arrowroot
1 egg whisked
1/4 cup coconut cream
1/2 cup rice malt syrup
1/4 cup tahini (hulled)
1 teaspoon coconut oil
Let's get cookin:
Preheat oven to 180c. If you have a 'bar' shaped cake mould or tin that would be ideal. But get creative sisters, that's what it's about! (you could always bake in a large baking tin and then slice these puppies up!)
Grease your tin with coconut oil. In a bowl, combine coconut flakes, cacao nibs, desiccated coconut, cacao powder, protein powder, arrorwroot & coconut sugar. In a separate bowl, whisk egg & then add coconut cream, rice malt syrup & tahini.
Pour liquid into your dry mix & stir until all ingredients are combined.
Place mix into your moulds or your baking tin & pop in the oven. Bake for roughly 20-25 mins (just keep an eye on them).
Serve hot or I like to keep them in the freezer and snack on them cold (so weird but so tasty).
Hopefully you enjoy!
