As an alternative to the microwave
Those who do not have a microwave can cook the mixture in a saucepan, continuing to stir for about 5 minutes.
- At this point, combine the protein powder (hazelnut taste), the coconut flour and mix to obtain a fairly firm compound, workable with your hands: the ideal consistency must be similar to that of a hard shortcrust pastry. dough is too thick, add one or two tablespoons of almond milk or hazelnut milk.
The mixture may be hot: it is advisable to wait 5 minutes before working the dough with your hands to avoid burning yourself.
Note that as the mixture cools, it will tend to thicken and harden.
- Spread the mixture on a sheet of baking paper and shape with your hands until you get a long and narrow rectangle, a couple of cm thick.
- Level the strip of dough with your hands, possibly with the help of a rolling pin.
- Wrap the protein mixture in a sheet of parchment paper or cling film, then place it in the fridge for half an hour.
- After the necessary time, proceed with the preparation of the bars. Cut the strip of dough into 12 pieces.
- Protein bars can be kept for about ten days in an airtight tray. For a chocolate version, you can partially dip the bars in melted chocolate or add chopped dark chocolate directly to the dough.
