Mad Creations Vanilla Protein Bears by Megan Ellam from Low Carb Mixers
Yield 384 bears
Such a simple recipe that you can easily make your own.
Seriously, take this recipe and add you own flavours to it - use essential oil, ground coffee, extracts, rind, coconut, whatever takes your fancy.
I really love this flavour of this simple recipe and I did it with both the WPI powder and with peppermint extract.
A great snack for the kids without refined sugar, and you could make heaps.
35g vanilla protein powder (I use Happy Way)
35g hemp seeds (don't have it? use the equivalent in almond meal)
35g almond meal
110g sugar free chocolate, melted
140g coconut oil, melted
Pinch of salt
1 tsp peppermint oil or extract
1 tsp grated orange rind
1 tsp any essential oil
1 tsp coffee grounds or instant coffee
Thermomix® - Add protein powder, hemp seeds and almond meal to bowl
Blend 20 seconds speed 8
Add melted chocolate, melted coconut oil and salt (plus any flavouring you desire)
Mix 30 seconds speed 3
Pour into moulds and set in fridge or freezer
Conventional method - Do all of the above but use a blender instead. This recipe is easy don't over complicate it.
My last little tip for filling the lovely moulds, dont use the little dropping tool, I have no patience for that I just poured straight from the bowl over all the little bears and scraped with a spatula. So simple and you can just about time it with the pour to have very little mess.
