Hi my dear readers!
Well I do owe you some explaining my dear readers, but first of all: I’ve missed you and the blog. Secondly; I haven’t really been able to update the blog because of a couple of reasons and I do owe you (and myself) an apology.
I’ve lost a family member and it’s has just been extremely tough to cope everything and juggle work plus studies at the same time. This accident made me forget how therapeutic baking and cooking can be so the last weeks I’ve been living of quark and quest bars, every day.
At first I was just buried in work and studying and sort of distracted myself but now I feel like I’m really getting better day by day and I’ve recently rediscovered my passion for baking. It’s truly therapeutic and gives me so much needed peace. But let’s forget about all that! Here’s a recipe I’ve been experimenting with lately:
Protein bar recipe
Fudgy, chewy glazed peanut and almond bars! Great macros, super easy and quick recipe that’ll satisfy your sweet tooth. Here goes:
8 T peanut flour (48g)
2 scoops vanilla whey (60 g)
1/2 tsp baking powder
Stevia drops to taste (about 10-20)
A pinch of salt
1 tsp almond essence
1 egg white (27 g)
1/4 cup or 0.6 dl unsweetened almond milk
1 T unsweetened applesauce (8 g)
2 tsp coconut oil (10 g)
Preheat the oven to 350 F or 175 C and grease a 8×8 inch or 22×22 cm big baking pan. Combine all the dry ingredients for the bars in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk together all the wet ingredients besides the fiber syrup. Mix the wet with the dry and pour the sirap into a small bowl and microwave on high for about 20 seconds. Quickly pour the boiling syrup into the batter and stir. Once fullt combined; pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake in the middle of the oven for about 13 minutes.
Meanwhile, make the glaze and glaze the bars as soon as they’re cool.
