The Chocolate Bar recipe below is a great way to enjoy a delicious treat and get the health benefits of dark chocolate with a fraction of the sugar and calories!
1 tsp oats
1 tsp flaxseeds
1 tbsp almonds, crushed
1.5 oz. dark chocolate (bar or chips)
1 tbsp peanut or almond butter
1 tbsp protein powder
1 tsp almond milk
1/2 cup brown rice crisp cereal
Try also adding dried cranberries or raisins for added variety.
1. Place one chocolate bar (e.g., normal-sized Hershey dark chocolate bar at 1.55 oz. or perhaps chocolate chips) in a large bowl and microwave for about 45 seconds or until melted (or on a pan over low heat)
2. Stir in the remaining ingredients until well mixed.
3. Pour chocolate bar mixture into candy bar molds (you can buy on Amazon.com). If you don’t have/want a mold, you can pour on foil or wax paper and spread out in the shape of a Hershey chocolate bar.
4. Freeze for 1 hour and break into 4 pieces and place in Ziploc bags so they’re pre-portioned and readily available. Enjoy!
