Homemade Twix Protein Bars

Next time you need to fill your trick-or-treat bag with candy, reach for these sweet treats and put on your best witch costume!

Ingredients

There are 3 different parts you'll need ingredients for: the nougat layer, the caramel layer and the chocolate layer. 

The nougat layer:
  • 1 cup coconut flour
  • 2 scoops Chocolate Whey
  • 1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup Monk Fruit Sweetener
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk (add 1/3 cup more if it's still too thick and crumbly)
The caramel layer:
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup Monk Fruit Sweetener (or liquid sweetener)
  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil 
The chocolate layer:
  • 1/2 cup Enjoy Life brand chocolate chips 
Directions
  • Line an 8 x 8 pan with parchment paper and set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, add the coconut flour and Chocolate Whey. Mix well. Add your peanut butter, Monk Fruit Sweetener and mix until a crumbly texture remains. Using a 1/4 cup, add milk of choice until a thick batter remains. (add more if still too crumbly). Transfer the batter to the lined pan and refrigerate.
  • In a microwave-safe bowl, start making the 'caramel' by combining your peanut butter, Monk Fruit Sweetener and coconut oil. Melt until it's a liquid-form. Pour over the top of the Twix nougat layer. 
  • Once hardened, remove from the loaf pan and cut into finger-length bars. Melt your chocolate chips in a large/flat bowl. Dip each snickers base in the chocolate until evenly coated. Refrigerate until chocolate has firmed up.
