Dark Chocolate Vanilla Malt More of Less Cylindrical Protein Bars
I could lie and say that I tried to make them into bars and they ended up as cylinders but I simply just rolled them and let the whole thing be. Ready for the recipe? Get a big bowl out or just a cereal bowl and mix together the following:
1/4 cup vanilla brown rice protein pow
1 teaspoon chicory powder (it’s stuff they sell as coffee substitute, e.g. Kafix, Yannoh, Pero, etc; as a coffee substitute I think it is an abomination but as a sort of ‘spice’? it’s malty and delicious!)
1 tablespoon vanilla casein
2 tablespoons ground almonds
1 tablespoon orange flavored fish oils (trust me on it, this adds such an amazing added flavor to the bars)
1/2 tablespoon coconut flour
1 tablespoon oat flour (or ground oats or just ground almonds)
1. Add enough water to this until it forms a paste that is shapeable (add a tablespoon at a time or something – you just don’t want the whole thing to be watery).
2. Shape it into either 2 bars, 2 cylinders or 4 truffle sized balls (they’re awesome to coat in chocolate too). When ready, melt 4 tbsp of dark chocolate (I used 90% Lindt) and dunk the bars/cylinders/balls in there.
3. Stick it in the freezer for ~ 15 minutes. Take them out.
4. Eat them, stick them in a tupperware, wrap them in foil – whatever.
