Ingredients:

  • 1/3 cup coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup smooth peanut/almond butter, unsalted
  • 1/2 cup almond/rice/soy/hemp milk, unsweetened
  • 1 + 1/2 cups vanilla plant based protein powder (I used Vega Sport)*
  • 1/3 cup almond meal
  • Topping*:
  • 2 tbsp chocolate chips (I used Enjoy Life)
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 3 tbsp almonds, coarsely choppe

Directions:

  • Combine coconut oil, peanut butter and milk in a medium bowl. Microwave in 30 seconds intervals until melted, stirring in between. Then whisk to combine well. Add protein powder + almond meal and mix with a spatula until combined. It will take a few minutes. Dough will be crumbly, that's fine.
  • Line 8" x 8" baking dish with parchment paper and fill with prepared dough. Flatten with your hands and then level with spatula, pressing dough into the dish all the time.
  • Combine chocolate chips and 1 tbsp coconut oil in a small bowl. Microwave for 30 seconds or until melted, then stir well. Pour over the bars and tilt the dish until all bars are coated evenly with chocolate.
  • Toast almonds in a small skillet on low-medium heat until lightly brown, about 5 minutes. Stir frequently and watch closely not to burn. Sprinkle on top of chocolate. Freeze for 20 minutes or refrigerate for 1 hour. Remove from the dish by holding onto the flaps of parchment paper and place on a cutting board. Cut into 12 bars and enjoy chilled.
Notes: Storage Instructions: Refrigerate in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks. Freeze in an airtight container for up to 6 months. Thaw at room temperature for 20 minutes and enjoy
