Almond Coconut Protein Fudge

I can’t begin to explain the taste of these little gems they are too good for words. The bottom is like a chewy fudgy brownie with a vanilla coconut cream topping. The hard part is only eating one of these! Recipe as follows⬇

Ingredients:

➡Chocolate Almond Base:
•1-¼  scoop (appx. 45g) LeanBodyForHer Chocolate whey isolate protein
•⅓ cup raw cacao powder
•¼ cup slivered almonds (plus extra for topping)
•Pinch Himalayan pink salt
•½ cup coconut butter, melted
•2 Tbsp VitaFiber IMO (or honey/agave/maple or rice syrup)
•¼ cup canned light coconut milk

➡Vanilla Coconut Top:
•¼ cup coconut butter, melted
•¼ cup canned light coconut milk
•2 Tbsp xylitol (or granulated sweetener of choice)
•1-½ scoop (appx. 65g) LeanBodyForHer Vanilla whey isolate protein
•¾ cup unsweetened shredded coconut

Method:
➡Bottom layer:
Line a loaf pan with parchment paper and set aside. In medium bowl combine protein, cacao powder, almonds and salt and set aside. Melt your coconut butter (I slowly melt by placing in small saucepan with water and bring to
a boil until I can get my measurement out). Stir the coconut butter, coconut milk and VitaFiber or other sweetener into the protein mixture with fork or spatula and combine well. Press and spread evenly into prepared parchment lined loaf pan.  Place in freezer for 30 minutes and start top layer.

➡Top layer:
In medium bowl mix together coconut butter and coconut milk, stir in xylitol or other sweetener. Add the protein powder ½ a scoop at a time until well combined and sticky, add shredded coconut and mix in with spatula until all is well incorporated.  Press onto bottom chocolate layer and spread until even.  Sprinkle slivered almonds over top pressing them lightly into top layer.  Refrigerate overnight or flash freeze for about 1-2 hours if you can’t wait like me and slice into 18 squares. Store in fridge.

Notes/options: If you don’t have coconut butter any nut butter should work or cocoa butter it will just have different color and flavor.  Feel free to use whatever protein as well. Macros based on original ingredients (IMO is very high fiber). If you would like to make this vegan/paleo feel free to use plant based protein powder.
