Today we made a ‘soft & chewy’ protein bar recipe that the customer named ‘Whirlaway Cacao Protein’.
The base ingredients in this simple 13 ingredient concoction were as follows:
- Cashew butter
- Fiber syrup
- Whey isolate
Under the ‘flavor & texture enhancers’ section, cacao nibs and dark chocolate chips were selected. Additionally, raw cacao powder was added as a ‘booster’ for a big increase in chocolatey flavor.
Under the ‘nuts & seeds’ category, hemp hearts and chia seeds were added. Both help boost the levels of omega 3 fatty acids in the bars.
Other notable ingredients in ‘Whirlaway Cacao Protein’ include:
- Brazilian coffee (intense flavor, natural caffeine)
- Coconut oil (flavor, healthy fats)
- Bee pollen powder (nutrients)
- Guarana powder (natural caffeine)
