Whey Protein Chocolate Covered Almonds
Jag gjorde det för dig Stina! A high protein version of one of the best treats ever: chocolate covered almonds!
34g 85% dark chocolate
6g coconut oil
17g chocolate whey protein powder
a bunch of cinnamon (could also use cocoa powder or a mixture of both cinnamon and cocoa) 100 almonds
1. Melt the chocolate and coconut oil in a bain marie (i.e. in a pot inside a pot of boiling water).
2. Spread a bunch of cinnamon and chocolate whey (could also use vanilla though) in a baking tray.
3. Grab 100 almonds and add them to the chocolate+coconut oil once this has melted. Once they’re covered in chocolate, place them in the cinnamon/whey and roll them until they’re fully coated.
By the end, your fingers will gain a first hand experience of what it’s like to be the almonds as the chocolate will have solidified under a coating of cinnamon and whey (peel it off your fingers and eat it).

The fun. Feel free to play around with the recipe, if you like it sweeter, add some refined sugar or sweetener to the cinnamon/whey. Use a lower % chocolate (you could also make it with milk “chocolate” if you’re into that). Enjoy!
