Easter is two days away, so is my trip to Boston.
Not ready for either.
No problem. I work well under pressure. I also work well with a Starbucks in hand.
I have a recipe for you really quickly.
Yeah, I know, I’m nice like that.
I also have a bunch of reader questions that need to be answered, but I’m not that nice. Those will have to wait. Okay? Okay.
This protein dip though. It can not.
Here you go.
I’ve been making this yummy protein dip a lot lately.
It’s similar to the old protein cookie dough crumble recipe from a long time ago.
But, this one doesn’t have any artificial sweeteners and such. It does have all my favorite things though- coconut flour, almond flour and chia. You just can’t go wrong when you’re mixing those things up. Ha.
STUFT Healthy Protein Dip
makes one serving
10 grams of pure vanilla whey protein powder (around 1 tablespoon)
5-10 grams of chia (around 1 tablespoon)
14 grams coconut flour (2 tablespoons)
8-10 grams almond flour (1 tablespoon)
splash almond extract (or vanilla)
cinnamon to taste
2-4 tablespoons nondairy milk of choice (I use unsweetened vanilla almond milk)
Just combine everything in a small bowl. Sometimes I don’t really measure, I just mix. You really can’t go wrong with a little more almond flour, a little more chia, etc. Just make sure to add the milk last and only add one tablespoon at a time until you get the consistency you want.
You can add sweetener if you’d like, but I think it’s just sweet enough as is.
It’s best when chilled and after it’s had some time to sit, but let’s be honest, sometimes you just have to eat it right away.
Depending on the amount of milk you add, you can have a dip, a crumble, or even a cookie.
Oh and this is grain free and gluten free for those of you with limitations.
Just look at a few of the options.
Wait, actually I just now remembered that I have one of these in cookie form in the freezer. I better find that guy and see if my little freezing plan worked.
Oh and I just have to say that I love that this makes a pretty big serving. Not like two measly tablespoons of nut butter. Ha ha. But, this would be really great with some NuttZo mixed in there. Oh heck yes.
Time to get to business.
Do you ever make your own protein bars or dips?
Do you work better under pressure?
