Pumpkin Cookie Dough Candy Bars

Ingredients

  • 120g pumpkin puree; I used canned
  • 45 ml (3 tbsp) maple syrup
  • 60g Cassava flour; can be replaced with plain white rice flour if desired
  • 60g dark chocolate of choice roughly chopped

...

  • 60g smooth roast cashew butter; sunflower seed butter for a nut free option
  • 15g Pulsin Vanilla Whey Protein
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil or clarified butter

These no bake pumpkin cookie dough bars are made grain free with cassava flour and contain a nice little protein boost. The texture is dreamy and the dark chocolate crispy coating is a beautiful contrast.

Pulsin’s Natural Vanilla Whey Protein  works really well in recipes, and can also be simply shaken up with milk for an easy on-the-go protein boost, it’s a great source of calcium too! You can find a delicious variety of recipes containing Pulsin’s Natural Vanilla Whey Protein here.
