These taste even better than they look. And there’s something distinctly chocolate-bar-with-nuts-and-caramel about the bars…

Makes approx. 16 bars
Easy

Ingredients

3 tbsp peanut butter (smooth or crunchy)
1 tsp vanilla essence or extract
80g dark-chocolate chips
100g ground almonds
1 tbsp honey or maple syrup
1 tbsp whey protein (chocolate or vanilla work well)
melted chocolate for drizzling (optional)

Instructions

Melt the peanut butter with the vanilla, either in the microwave or in a heatproof bowl set over simmering water. Stir in the ground almonds and honey, and mix well to combine. Leave to cool a little then mix in the whey protein and dark-chocolate chips till you have a big ball of cookie-dough-like consistency. Flatten the ball into a tray lined with baking parchment, so that it is evenly spread out and roughly 2cm thick. Chill in the fridge for a couple of hours.

To up the chocolate ante, melt a little dark chocolate and drizzle over the top before putting in the fridge to chill. Looks pretty too.
