Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bars

yields1-2 servings

Ingredients:

  • 3 tbsp Sunflower Seed Butter
  • 1 tsp coconut oil (melted)
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup almond flour
  • 1 serving Vital Performance® Vanilla Protein
  • 1 tbsp shredded coconut
  • 1–2 tbsp chocolate chips
  • 25g dark chocolate (melted for topping)
  • 1/8 tsp sea salt flakes (for topping)

Directions:

  1. Whisk sunflower seed butter, coconut oil, vanilla, maple syrup and cinnamon in a small bowl.
  2. Add the almond flour, protein and shredded coconut into a bowl and combine.
  3. Mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients with a wooden spoon. Fold in the chocolate chips once mixed.
  4. Add about half of the cookie dough mixture into a 2X2 silicone square and form the dough to the silicone container. Place in the freezer for 10 minutes to settle the dough.
  5. Next, melt the dark chocolate (with 1 tsp of coconut oil) in a saucepan on low temperature.
  6. Remove the silicone container of cookie dough from the freezer and pour the dark chocolate on top. Spread the melted chocolate evenly on the cookie dough and top with sea salt flakes or extra coconut shreds.
  7. Set the baking dish back in the freezer for another 20–30 minutes. Remove from freezer, pop out the squares and enjoy!
