Peanut Butter Chocolate Swirl Protein BarsThese protein bars are loaded with healthy plant-based protein, fiber and fats from MRM Veggie Meal protein, peanut and coconut flour! Rather than going for a package of Reese’s to curb those afternoon sweet cravings, grab one of these - a perfectly healthy, sweet and delicious replacement for that sugar-laden candy bar. And you can’t get much better than a healthy Peanut Butter/Chocolate treat!
You will need:
Peanut Butter Base:
¼ cup MRM Vanilla Bean Veggie Meal Replacement protein powder
In a bowl, sift the first three dry ingredients for the Peanut Butter Base.
Add the milk and stir until a dough forms - thick enough to mold with your hands.
Combine the Chocolate Swirl ingredients in a small bowl and SLOWLY add a drizzle of water until it becomes a pourable consistency
Drizzle about ½ the chocolate mixture on top of the peanut butter dough and gently mix until the chocolate is only slightly incorporated into the dough.
Form into 3 equal-sized bars and place on a small parchment-lined cookie sheet
Drizzle the remaining chocolate on the top of the bars and freeze for 1 hour until set.
Best kept in the freezer until ready to eat. Feel free to microwave for 5-7 seconds to soften into a warm peanut buttery-chocolate protein bar! (Just beware “chocolate fingers” – it will melt!!)
