Double layered and packed with protein, these Orange Chocolate Protein Bars are set to be your new favourite pre-or-post workout snack! Recipe by Merilin at Almost Zero Waste.
70g Rolled Oats
88ml Orange Juice
10ml Coconut Oil
A Pinch of Salt
35g Peanut Flour
20g Peanut Butter
50ml Plant Milk
150g Melted Chocolate
1tbsp Cocoa Butter or Coconut Oil (+ 1 Cup Chocolate Chips)
Step 1: In a small pot, soak dates in hot water for 20 or so minutes (you can do a “quick-soak” in boiling water for a couple of minutes, too).
The peanut caramel layer:
Step 1: In a bowl, combine all the ingredients for the caramel layer until you everything is mixed.
Step 2: Spread on top of the chilled dough and then put back in the freezer. If you wish, sprinkle a few rice crisps or popped quinoa on top.
Step 1: Melt a chocolate bar to a double boiler on medium heat. Be careful not to burn the chocolate.
Step 1: Take out the bars from the freezer, and cut them into 16 pieces. Start putting each of the bars in the melted chocolate, and then transfer to cool down on a metal net tray. Since the bars will be cold, the chocolate will become solid quite fast, so try to be a bit faster here, or you will have to re-melt the chocolate again.
Step 2: After all the bars are covered with chocolate, you can decorate them with dried raspberries or eat them like that! You can store them in the fridge for over a week or in the freezer for ~3 months.
