Lately, If I am not craving peanut butter in ANY form (like straight out of the jar) I am obsessed with protein fudge. I have made these so many times since first trying them out and you guessed it, the twins don’t mind them either. This recipe is super easy, super quick and you can add so many healthy ingredients to make your every own yummy, filling, healthy snack. Try adding your favourite nuts or even dried fruit if you aren’t too concerned about the additional sugar content. These will work with your favourite flavour of whey – although my best by far is USN’s Wheytella protein. In this recipe I have added some dried desiccated coconut and pecans.
Remember that although these are no sugar and high protein they are also high fat so they are calorie dense and should be enjoyed responsibly if you are following a calorie controlled eating plan.
You will need:
2 cups USN Wheytella Premium Whey Protein
1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon espresso coffee or cinnamon (optional)
1 cup melted coconut oil
1/2 cup melted peanut butter (sugar & salt free)
1/2 cup unsalted nuts (chopped up)
1/2 Desiccated coconut (optional)
2 tablespoons liquid sweetener (I use agave syrup)
1. Mix all dry ingredients into a bowl.
2. Add the melted coconut oil, peanut butter and sweetener into the mixture and combine will with a spatula.
3. Add the desired amount of nuts and continue mixing until well combined. You should have a non-sticky thick fudge consistency.
4. Add spray n Cook into your grease proof tin and flatten with spatula. Freeze for approx. 30 minutes until set. Remove from tray, cut into desired squares and store in an air tight container.
These will easily keep in the fridge or freezer for up to a week but I wouldn’t really know as they never last that long in my house 🙂
