Almond butter protein bars with a thiqqqqqqq layer of dark chocolate because…..booty gains? And because – CHOCOLATE. I’ll take it.
- 1 cup almond butter (peanut butter is yum too!)
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 2/3 cup protein powder of choice
- 1/2 cup hemp seeds
- 1/2 cup ground flax seeds
- 3 tbsp melted coconut oil
- 1 chocolate bar (I used a Hu kitchen almond butter and puffed quinoa bar)
- 1 tsp coconut oil
- sea salt
In a medium bowl, whisk together the almond butter, maple syrup, coconut oil, and vanilla, until smooth.
Next add the protein powder, hemp and flax, and stir together well. Dough should be thickkkk; If it’s not add a little more protein powder.
Line a 9x5 or 8x4 pan with parchment paper (coat inside of pan with oil first so paper sticks). Press dough evenly in the pan and set aside.
Melt chocolate bar and coconut oil. I do this in 30 second intervals in the microwave. pour chocolate evenly on top.
Refrigerate for 30 to 45 min before slicing.
Sprinkle sea salt on top.
