Guest Post – Josi Trotter – Chocolate Crispy Bar Recipe

This week we have the wonderful Josi popping by to give us some foodie inspiration. Foodie inspiration in the form of peanut butter and chocolate, this couldn’t be any more perfect. This recipe contains no nasty ingredients = 100% natural. Sweet treats made healthier! These little chocolate crispy bars are the perfect afternoon pick-me-up or an evening treat, they have a large nostalgic feel as they remind me of the sugar laden bars I use to create when I was 10 years old! Thank you, Josi, for creating such little bars of deliciousness. Before we delve into this chocolate, peanut butter heaven lets meet Josi.

Name: Josi
Age: 22
Occupation: Trainee accountant
Favourite food: Mexican, I have something Mexican at least weekly and definitely get withdrawal symptoms if I don’t!
Favourite sweet treat: Chickpea blondies, there’s a recipe for these on my blog!
Perfect Saturday night: A night in with a delicious dinner, huge flex bowl and a Disney movie (don’t judge!)
The aim of The Good Food Gallery: I started my blog to create delicious recipes and share them with like-minded people, I wanted to prove that food can be enjoyed and doesn’t need to be reduced to a number of calories. It also doesn’t need to be super restrictive and anyone can enjoy food that is nutritious and good for you – it’s become more than I ever imagined and I absolutely love the amazing community of people I’ve met through my blog!

Recipe Time!

Recipe: Chocolate Crispy Bars
I made these as a breakfast/quick snack and they’re so tasty! Great for on the go and they really remind me of the rice crispy cakes we used to have as a kid (just without all the nasties in them!)

Ingredients

  • 100g Brown puffed rice (I use Rude Health!)
  • 1 Scoop chocolate protein
  • 1 scoop of vanilla casein
  • 3 tbsp Cacao powder
  • 50g Honey/Maple syrup
  • 80g Coconut oil melted
  • 70g Peanut butter

Method

  1. Put all dry ingredients in a bowl and stir until well mixed
  2. Add the maple syrup/honey and coconut oil and mix until all of the rice is coated in the liquid
  3. In a small bowl, add the peanut butter with a couple of tablespoons of boiling water and mix well until the peanut butter loosens to a sauce that you can drizzle
  4. Tip the peanut butter into the rest of the mix and mix until fully combined
  5. Fill a loaf tray with the mix and flatten down
  6. Pop in the fridge for an hour then slice and serve!
