Peanut Butter Fudge Protein Bars
I made these bars for a party (and well, for myself too because I ate probably more than 1/3 of the batch, shhhh). They’re a tribute to healthy indulgence and chocolate. And protein. And peanut butter! And they feature just four ingredients, bound together with a bit of freshly-brewed espresso (because who can say no to dark chocolate and coffee, right?) Here goes:
6g whey protein (note: if you want to sub for a plant-based powder, you can. Just be sure you add a bit more of the coffee afterwards and perhaps a bit more of the agave!)
8g coconut flour
10g agave syrup (or maple)
16g peanut butter
Cocoa to taste (depends on how chocolatey you like them!)
Tiny bit of coffee, just enough to bind the mixture above together
1. Mix all ingredients in a bowl using your hands.
2. Bind into a dough.
3. Shape into rectangles – or bars.
Note: Duplicate or triplicate the recipe to make more! I always do that and just keep the bars in the fridge or, when I make a GIANT batch, I freeze them and just defrost on the day I plan on eating them!
