Chocolate Oat Protein Slices

I’ve tried many a recipe for various protein bars and desserts and I have to say i think this one is by far the tastiest. These double layered slices taste just like chocolate cake, so this is one recipe you just have to try …..

Each slice is around 160 calories and contains 10g of Protein! It combines both natural protein sources such as egg white, hemp seeds, almond flakes and almond butter (Oh yes, almond butter is included!) alongside whey powder.

 As you guys have probably noticed, I like to pick one ingredient I’ve used in the recipe and provide you with the nutritional benefits. For this recipe one of the many power ingredients is hemp seeds. Hemps seeds are great for the following:

  • They are exceptionally rich in two essential fatty acids, linoleic acid (omega-6) and alpha-linolenic acid (omega-3).
  • More than 25% of their total calories are from high-quality protein.
  • They are a great source of vitamin E and minerals such as phosphorus, potassium, sodium, magnesium, sulfur, calcium, iron and zinc
  • They are considered a  complete protein source, which means that they provide all the essential amino acids.
  • Whole hemp seeds are a good source of both soluble (20%) and insoluble (80%) fibre

So here’s how to make these yummy slices for yourself….
