Good to have in the fridge for when you need a mid-afternoon snack.. Really nice with a dollop of cream and some rasberries!
40g of 90% (or higher) chocolate
1 tablespoon of almond butter (I just used almonds processed to a butter in a high power blender)
1 teaspoon vanilla powder
240g Professional Whey Elite 3.0 Protein Powder in Vanilla or Cacao
1 tablespoon of cacao
2 tablespoons of sweetener of your choice (I used stevia)
handful of macadamias or pecans, chopped
In a small saucepan combine butter, chocolate, ricotta and almond butter. Melt while mixing to form a paste. Stir through your sweetener and vanilla. Pour into a bowl with the remaining ingredients and stir to combine. It will be pretty thick and may require a bit of elbow grease (not literally) to mix it through. Tip into a lined square tin and flatten. Refrigerate and once solid slice into 16 squares. Store in the refrigerator.
