After making this I saw that it was really going to be 2 servings, not 1. Of course that will depend on your desire, so I counted half of the recipe for 1 serving but gave the nutritional info for both. You can choose. It's very filling and satisfying for me, and quite enough as a meal replacement, especially if you have a good breakfast like I do. I start my day off with a cheese omelet and a "donut bun" which is another recipe I'll try to get up soon. I'm thinking a video of it might be good.
VANILLA WHEY ISOLATE PROTEIN BAR
1 tablespoon coconut oil
2 tablespoons kefir cheese, plain -- (sweetened to your taste)
1 scoop whey isolate, Body Fortress super advanced, vanilla creme
1/4 cup dry roasted pepitas, lightly salted -- ground in bullet blender or coffee grinder (OR flaxmeal, OR ground nuts/seeds of choice)
1/4 cup heavy cream
3 packets Truvia -- (powdered in coffee grinder)
4 drops liquid sucralose
1/2 unsweetened chocolate square -- shaved or chopped into small pieces
In small bowl, melt coconut oil in microwave on high for 30 seconds. Add kefir cheese and mix with electric mixer until smooth and creamy. If you don't have kefir cheese, you can use yogurt cheese, or just cream cheese. But with the kefir or yogurt cheese you get lots of good probiotics. Add whey isolate and pepitas and stir together well until it is a stiff dough.
Turn out onto waxed paper, cut in half, form into bars and place in freezer while you make the ganache.
Ganache: In small saucepan, add cream, Truvia, and liquid sucralose. Stir and heat to a boil. Remove from heat and add chocolate pieces. Stir until all chocolate is completely melted and mixture becomes smooth, thicker, and creamy.
Pour half of ganache over squares on wax paper, turn and pour remaining chocolate over squares. Spread and smooth out over bars. Freeze 30 minutes. Store in refrigerator.
"This could be used for a meal replacement on the go, or snack with enough protein for one meal."
