A high protein version of one of the best treats ever: chocolate covered almonds!
34g 85% dark chocolate
6g coconut oil
17g chocolate whey protein powder
A bunch of cinnamon (could also use cocoa powder or a mixture of both cinnamon and cocoa)
1. Melt the chocolate and coconut oil in a bain marie (i.e. in a pot inside a pot of boiling water).
2. Spread a bunch of cinnamon and chocolate whey (could also use vanilla though) in a baking tray.
3. Grab 100 almonds and add them to the chocolate and coconut oil once this has melted. Once they’re covered in chocolate, place them in the cinnamon/whey and roll them until they’re fully coated.
By the end, your fingers will gain a first hand experience of what it’s like to be the almonds as the chocolate will have solidified under a coating of cinnamon and whey (peel it off your fingers and eat it).

The fun. Feel free to play around with the recipe, if you like it sweeter, add some refined sugar or sweetener to the cinnamon/whey. Use a lower % chocolate (you could also make it with milk “chocolate” if you’re into that). Enjoy!

I always gaze longingly at the chocolate covered almonds…This is pure brilliance!
Whey protein is a good muscle enhancer but if not taken properly it may cause your kidney and liver to malfunction. Seek professional advise first to know the right amount of intake for your body type.
Thanks “Whey Protein Side Effects”. In addition to having conducted plenty of research, I have consulted several professionals (nutritionists and doctors) to assess the appropriate amount of protein intake for my body type. I am most certainly aware of the fact that one must take into consideration one’s body type, individual medical history, activity level and so forth to ascertain one’s protein needs (going of course also beyond protein to address one’s needs in relation to other macro AND micronutrients).
