Healthy Double Chocolate Almond Butter Crispy Bars

 

I’ve got something a little different for you today but don’t worry I’m still sticking to my usual nutter butter and chocolate madness. Today I made chocolate almond butter (see what I did there) crispy bars and then slathered them in chocolate because whenever I get about 3/4 of the way finished with creating a recipe, I get a little unsure of myself and decided the best course of action is to just top it off with melted chocolate. This strategy usually works out well and in this case in particular it worked out really well!


 

 

In this recipe I used Erewhon’s organic brown rice crispy cereal that’s made gluten-free. I used this brand because it’s USDA organic, non GMO verified and low in sugar and fat.

 

 

I added protein powder to this recipe as per usual, however, it can easily be omitted if you don’t have on hand but keep in mind that the macros will change.

 

 

That crisp though!

Barely Baked Oatmeal Fig Bars {high protein}

These Almond Butter Fig Bars are just barely baked so they keep their deliciously gooey melt-in-your-mouth texture.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 c old fashion oats
  • 1/4 c quick oats
  • 1 scoop protein powder (I used PEScience Snickerdoodle 30% OFF code PBCHOCO)
  • 2 tbsp. all natural sugar free maple syrup or sticky syrup of choice
  • 2 tbsp. coconut sugar (I used Better Body Foods)
  • 1/4 c almond butter
  • 12 dried black mission figs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract (I used Better Body Foods)
  • 1 tsp. baking powder

Instructions

  1. Pre-heat your oven to 350f and prepare a glass dish or baking pan with parchment paper (mine was about 8x8 inches).
  2. Place your figs, almond butter, vanilla and maple syrup into a food processor or high performing blender on high until almost smooth. (I like small chunks of fig)
  3. In a bowl mix together your oats, protein, coconut sugar and baking powder.
  4. Add your fig/almond butter mixture into the bowl and use your hands to fold the ingredients together until completely incorporated.
  5. Press the dough evenly into the bottom of the baking dish.
  6. Bake for 8-9 minutes.
  7. Remove and let cool completely before cutting into 9 squares and serving.
  8. Enjoy!
