Cookie Dough Caramel Protein Bars
These are fairly decadent for a protein bar but great for morning tea or afternoon tea when you just want a little something sweet but satiating. Easy to make too! If you don't feel like dipping the squares in chocolate you can always give them a good drizzle.
This recipe is based on one by Charley's Health - you can see the original recipe HERE, and fine mine below.
1 cup almond flour
2 Tbsp cashew or peanut butter
1 Tbsp melted coconut oil
2 Tbsp honey (or maple syrup)
Generous pinch of sea salt
Handful of dark chocolate chips (or cut up chocolate bar like I used)
* water as needed
Mix the ingredients (except water) together and then add water 1 Tbsp at a time, as needed, to make the mixture come together.
2 Tbsp honey or maple syrup
3 Tbsp cashew or peanut butter
Pinch of sea salt
Milk as needed
Stir the honey, nut butter and sea salt together then add a little bit of milk of choice until it is spreadable. It won’t need much.
75g dark chocolate
1 Tbsp coconut oil
Melt these together over a double boiler, or in the microwave for 15 second increments.
Directions for assembly:
Press the base mix into a standard sized loaf tin lined with baking paper.
Top with the ‘caramel’ and then place into the freezer to set. 1-3 hours approximately.
Once set, slice into small squares and dip each square into the melted chocolate mixture. Drizzle with any excess chocolate and sprinkle with a bit of sea salt crystals.
Store in the fridge until ready to eat.
