Today we made ‘EZ Brekkie’–a gourmet protein bar recipe created by a customer.
This creation used the ‘soft & nutty/seedy’ base, with the following base ingredients:
- Roasted almond butter
- Maple pecan butter
- Coconu tnectar
- Egg white protein
In order to add flavor and texture, the following nuts, seeds, and dried fruit were selected:
- Oats (fiber)
- Chia seeds (fiber, omega 3’s)
- Walnuts (Omega 3’s)
- Shredded raw coconut & toasted coconut (healthy fats)
- Tart Cherries (antioxidants, Vit. C)
In order to add an intense coffee flavor as well as some natural levels of caffeine, ground Brazilian coffee added. Coffee has a very strong flavor profile and will over power most of the other ingredients in a protein bar recipe–so expect plenty of coffee flavor if you choose this option!
In order to increase the nutrients in ‘EZ Brekkie’, bee pollen powder and flaxseed powder were selected under the ‘boosters’ section. These ingredients don’t contribute much in terms of flavor, but they do provide some powerful nutrients.
For additional flavor the customer chose both vanilla, each of which work very will in just about any recipe.
They also added orange and caramel flavor oils, which will indeed add a very unique taste!
