Today we made a protein bar recipe that the customer named ‘chocolate cherry’.
In addition to dark chocolate and sour cherries, this creation used the following four base ingredients:
- Almond butter
- Fiber syrup
- Pea protein
- Medjool dates
There were only a total of 9 ingredients in this simple concoction, which is below average.
In addition to the base ingredients, the customer also added almond and cacao nibs. Both of these selections are nice because they add both a nice crunchy texture and flavor.
When it came the dried fruit section, sour cherries and cranberries were used. Both offer some considerable tartness!
The final ingredient used in ‘chocolate cherry’ was organic raw cacao powder. Cacao powder not only boosts chocolate flavor, but also contributes healthy fats along with a slew of minerals and antioxidants.
