This is my most favorite protein powder infused snack I’ve ever tried. I swapped all the traditional ingredients lacking nutritional value and added some more health conscious goodies. This recipe is also a winner in my books because it literally takes maybe 10 minutes to prepare!
Protein Puffed “Wheat” Squares
-4 cups puffed rice (or puffed kamut if you desire)
-2 scoops chocolate protein powder
-2/3 cup honey
-1/4 cup coconut oil
-1/4 cup ghee (which is clarified butter. Feel free to use an organic full fat butter or even more coconut oil).
-3 tbsp cocoa powder
-2 tsp vanilla
-Mix the puffed rice and protein powder in a large bowl and set aside.
-Heat all the remaining ingredients in a pot over medium heat. Stir frequently until completely melted and combined.
-Pour the heated wet ingredients over the dry and mix together.
-Pour into 8×8 baking dish (lightly greased) and press down to achieve an even foundation.
-Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes and cut into squares.
-Always keep them refrigerated (or in the freezer for long term storage) or they will fall apart once the coconut oil turns room temperature 🙂
