Today we made a 12-ingredient gourmet protein bar recipe that the customer named ‘Diane’s Dream Bar’.
She chose the ‘soft & nutty/seedy’ base option with the following core ingredients:
- Roasted almond butter
- Coconut nectar
- Coconut flour
- Egg white protein
In the ‘nut & seed’ category, pistachios and pecans were the two selections chosen.
There were also two ingredients selected under the ‘dried fruit’ category–freeze-dried blueberries and tart cherries. Both offer substantial, recognizable flavor.
For added flavor and a little additional sweetness, organic dark chocolate chips and toasted coconut were used.
Tp tie ‘Diane’s Dream’ together, this customer decided to add butter pecan flavor as the final ingredient. Flavor oils are added in very small amounts in each recipe, but a little sure goes a long way as they are very potent!
