Ingredients
  • 1 cup Isopure Natural Vanilla whey isolate (93g)
  • ¼ cup filtered water (60ml), or as needed
  • ¼ cup hazelnut butter, warmed (56g)
  • seeds of one vanilla bean
  • 2 scoops stevia (or to taste)
  • 2 tablespoons coconut flour (16g)
Instructions
  1. Mix whey protein and water. Use just enough water to have a smooth texture, not crumbly.
  2. Mix in hazelnut butter, vanilla bean seeds, and stevia.
  3. Add coconut flour, and mix to combine. You'll need to use your hands.
  4. Place dough on a sheet of parchment, and use the side of a large knife or flat surface to help shape it into a rectangle.
  5. Wrap in the parchment, and refrigerate for an hour or so to firm it up before cutting (if desired).
  6. Enjoy! These will be fine wrapped in parchment or plastic wrap in your bag all day, but for longer storage I would refrigerate them.
Notes
A note about substitutions: Casein, whey/casein blends, or vegan protein powders would also work here. Because casein and vegan proteins are more drying, you may need more water and/or less coconut flour.

I make the hazelnut butter myself by putting hazelnut meal in the food processor.
