Today we made a wild ‘dessert bar’ concoction that the customer named ‘Fun Fiber Bar’. This recipe is sure to satisfy any sweet tooth with it’s array of many decadent ingredients (over 18 in total).
For the base ingredients, the following 6 selections got the nod:
- Chocolate hazelnut butter
- Fiber syrup
- Date Paste
- Egg white protein
- Raw grass-fed whey
- Pea protein isolate
One of the benefits of combining multiple types of proteins together like this recipe is the fact that it diversifies the amino acid profile of the bars. This recipe contains all essential amino acids, and would be considered a complete protein for this reason.
Collagen peptides were an additional protein that the customer selected as a ‘booster’, further adding to this recipes protein levels, and further diversifying it’s amino acid profile.
Here is a list of the notable (and unique!) ‘dessert’ ingredients in the Fun Fiber Bar:
- Chocolate PB pieces
- Cocoa rice crisps
- Cocoa butter pieces
- Cookie dough flavor
- Cake batter flavor
The customer certainly had fun building this unique creation!
In the nut & seed department, the customer went with almonds and pistachios. Both offer nice flavor and some additional crunch.
Dried shredded coconut was the sole dried fruit used in this creation. It’s a nice way of adding additional fiber, flavor, and healthy fats to any recipe.
Two final ingredients were used in ‘Fun Fiber’–flaxseed powder to add omega 3’s and fiber, and guarana powder to boost natural levels of caffeine.
