These salted caramel protein bars are a delicious combination of a salted caramel peanut layer on the bottom, and then topped with a protein chocolate topping!

Ingredients

Salted Carmel Protein Layer

Chocolate Protein Topping
  • 2 scoops XTEND PRO Chocolate Lava Cake
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 3 tbsp milk 
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil, melted caramel sauce for drizzling over the top (sugar-free or regular)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Add all salted caramel protein layer ingredients to a powerful blender or food processor. Process until a thick dough forms. It will be slightly sticky due to the protein powder.
  1. Press dough into a protein/granola bar pan. If you don’t have one, you can press into any small square dish/pan and cut them into bars later. 
  1. Bake for 5 minutes at 350F. Once baked, place in fridge/freezer to chill while making the chocolate layer. 
  1. Add all chocolate layer ingredients to a small bowl. Mix until a smooth, thick chocolate sauce forms. Pour evenly over top of chilled salted caramel layer. 
  1. Place in fridge/freezer again for about 5 minutes to let chocolate layer set. Once set, drizzle with some salted caramel and enjoy!
