Chocolate Hazelnut Paleo Protein Bar Recipe
- 350 grams chocolate (70% to 80% dark chocolate or Nutella if you’re feeling naughty)
- 200 grams unsalted butter (grass-fed)
- ½ cup dark chocolate chips (optional – I don’t include them but they’re a great addition if you love chocolate)
- ¼ cup xylitol (optional – again I don’t use this as I find these bars sweet enough))
- 100 grams ground almonds
- ¼ cup whey protein powder
- ½ cup chopped hazelnuts
- 2 tablespoons dark chocolate (70% to 80%)
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter (grass-fed)
- First the Bars
- Line a 22cm x 22cm Pyrex glass dish with baking paper
- In a small saucepan combine the chocolate spread, butter, chocolate chips and xylitol (optional).
- Stir until melted and remove from heat
- Stir in ground almonds and chopped hazelnuts
- Pour into prepared dish and press down evenly
- Place in fridge for a couple of hours until firm
- Then the Topping
- Place the dark chocolate and unsalted butter in a heatproof glass dish
- Melt this over a pan of simmering water, stirring until melted
- Spread this topping over the bars and place back in the fridge until set.
Once the chocolate topping has set, cut into squares or bars and serve.
