If you have been following my blog for a little while, you will be well aware that I am a huge foodie. You have probably seen quite a few food reviews, juice cleanses and even a cooking video or two. Its safe to say I spend a lot of time in the kitchen and nothing gives me more joy than finding something that makes cooking more efficient – enter my new Whirlpool induction cooktop. (Insert applause). Up until now, I was a gas girl. I didn’t think there was anything better than cooking on a gas stove…alas I was wrong! Not only is the induction cook top quick but I feel like you have far more control over the temperature. Sheer joy!
I thought I would show you how easy it is to make my favourite protein slice. This thing is literally life changing. You will have no need to cave to a craving if you have this baby in the fridge. (Recipe below)
What you will need:
1/2 cup of almond meal
4 scoops of protein (your choice)
1/2 cup cacao powder
1 cup of coconut oil
1 cup of nut butter
1 tablespoon of chia seeds
2 tablespoons of coconut
1/3 cup of maple syrup (or sweetener of you choice)
1 tablespoon of maca superfood powder
1 teaspoon of vanilla bean powder
Raw Chocolate Toping
1/2 cup of cacao powder
1/2 cup of coconut oil
1/3 cup maple syrup (or sweetener of your choice)
In a small pan on a gentle heat melt coconut oil, liquid sweetener and nut butter. Once all are melted, allow to cool. In a bowl combine all other fudge ingredients and then add the cooled coconut oil and nut butter to the mix. Mix well and add more coconut oil if the mixture is too dry – if it is too wet, add a sprinkle of almond meal. Press mixture down into a slice tin (you can line with baking paper if you like) and smooth over with the back of a spoon. Place into the freezer while you make the “icing.”
Make icing by melting all ingredients in a small saucepan. Once melted, whisk together. Pour over fudge making sure it coats the top evenly. Top with cacao nibs for extra crunch.
Refrigerate for at lest two hours before cutting into bars.
