Chocolate Protein Bars with Sweet Potato
Prep Time: 15
Total Time: 15
Yield: 6 1x
A delicious and healthy reward that tastes like dessert. I like to have 2 squares for a sweet, protein-dense treat.
1/3 C sweet potato flesh (from a big baked sweet potato. The canned things does not taste as excellent).
1 egg white.
1/2 chocolate bar, melted (can utilize a double-boiler if youre feeling fancy, or a glass bowl in the microwave. Microwave the chocolate in 30 second periods, stopping to stir in between).
2 scoops protein powder of choice (I utilized vanilla Garden of Life; chocolate would be awesome, too).
1/3 C brown rice flour (or any gluten-free flour).
1 t vanilla.
1/4 t baking powder.
Sweetener of option if required (maple syrup, honey, Stevia, coconut sugar).
To make these vegan, make certain to utilize a vegan chocolate bar, and replacement 3 chia or flax eggs for the regular eggs. To make the flax or chia egg, integrate 3 tablespoons of either chia or ground flax with 3 tablespoons water.
