Saw this bad boy on Bodybuilding.com:
Decided to give it a try today, modified for my diet. Obligatory pics:
My recipe alteration: (not a big fan of coconut, but these tasty!)
1/2-cup Plant Fusion Protein Powder
1/4-cup Coconut Flour
1/4-cup Coconut Flakes
1/4-cup Soy Milk
1/2-bag Soy Chocolate Chips (Whole Foods Vegan brand)
Actually I had to use more soy milk than listed above because the mixture was so dry - I'm sure it was well over half a cup, but start out with a quarter of a cup and just keep adding until you get the consistency you want. Basically you want to end up with playdough or cookie dough consistency.
Mix the protein powder, flour, and flakes together in a large bowl with a wooden spoon, then add the soy milk until you get it to a doughy texture. Then toss it in a small 8x8" or 9x9" pan with parchment paper and press it down as thin or as thick as you want. Then melt the chocolate chips for 20 seconds at a time in the microwave (I do it 3 times & stir each time) and pour over the top & smooth it down with a spoon (coating each individual bar top/bottom/sides is just too much work haha - I just nail the whole top & I'm done!). Then chuck it in the freezer for 30 minutes.
They came out pretty dang good! It's really nice to have a tasty treat that also has some good qualities about it (higher protein content, no preservatives, etc.) and is also ridiculously easy to make. Plus I have allergies (dairy, gluten, etc.) so I can actually eat these!!
1. Use parchment paper - makes the entire block pop right out of the pan from the freezer. Nothing to clean up.
2. Use a thin layer of melted chocolate chips - just enough to cover it. In my second photo above, you can see how a slightly thicker coating on top completely cracked when I cut up the bars. Which didn't stop me from gorging myself on them
3. Use a thicker layer of the dough mixture, like at least a quarter inch. The mushiness balances out nicely with the hardened chocolate coating on top.
