20 minutes preparation + 30 minutes waiting time
Per salty peanut protein bar*: 453 kcal, 8 g carbohydrates (of which 5 g sugar), 31 g fat, 25 g protein
*When using Steviala Magical Maple syrup and Steviala Dark chocolate drops
- 230 grams of peanut butter
- 65 grams (sugar-free) maple syrup, for example from Steviala
- 80 gram Live Puri Vegan Peanut Butter Protein Powder
- 100 gram Pure chocolate drops, gallets or pieces of a bar (possibly sugar-free)
- Maldon sea salt, to taste
- Make sure all ingredients are at room temperature. Take a large bowl and mix the peanut butter with the (sugar-free) maple syrup until you get a smooth mixture.
- Add – little by little – the Vegan Peanut Butter protein powder and stir thoroughly with a fork or sturdy whisk. The moment a dough forms, switch the fork or whisk with your hands. Knead the dough well and form it into a ball.
- Place a sheet of baking paper in a brownie tin or deep baking tray and press the dough into it. You can determine the thickness of the bar yourself and use the back of a spoon to make pressing it easier. Then place the mold in the refrigerator for 15 minutes (or 5 minutes) in the freezer to let the bars set.
- In the meantime, melt 2/3 of the chocolate using the au bain-marie method. Make sure the temperature of the chocolate remains between 45 and 50 degrees Celsius. Remove the chocolate from the heat and add the remaining chocolate while stirring. The idea is for this 'cold' chocolate to melt into the warm melted chocolate. Ultimately, the chocolate will reach a temperature of 31-32 degrees Celsius.
- Remove the mold with the dough from the refrigerator or freezer. Cut the slice into 5 bars and coat them with the melted chocolate. Sprinkle the bars with Maldon sea salt flakes and finally let the chocolate coating harden at room temperature.
- Store the Salty Peanut Protein Bars in the refrigerator or freeze them.
