Another no-carb sweet protein treat! These delicious White Protein Chocolate Crunch Bars are made with raw cacao butter, unflavored whey protein, natural no-cal sweetener, and chocolate whey crunchies. Sweet white protein chocolate with added protein crunch! Delicious!
I started with my White Protein Chocolate recipe using unflavored Isopure and raw cacao butter. Instead of using stevia this time, I used confectioner’s style erythritol. I find it to be a bit sweeter, which I thought would be great with the chocolate whey crunchies. The whey crunchies are a great way to add protein, but they aren’t too sweet on their own.
To make these White Protein Chocolate Crunch Bars I used this large chocolate bar mold and this mini chocolate bar mold. But without a mold, you could just pour the mixture onto a flexible food container lid, or in a baking pan lined with parchment paper. Be creative!

- Mix cacao butter, whey protein, and sweetener until smooth.
- Add in whey crunchies.
- Place chocolate molds on a flat tray or cookie sheet for support. (You'll put the tray in the freezer after filling the molds with chocolate.)
- Spoon or pour chocolate into molds. (Each mini bar is about ½ teaspoon in volume, so it helps to use a ½ teaspoon with that one.)
- Place tray in freezer for about 5 minutes to set the mini bars, about 20 minutes to set the larger bar.
- Remove tray from freezer, and remove bars from mold.
- Enjoy! Store extras in the refrigerator or freezer, or as you would regular chocolate.
A note about substitutions: Other than using your choice of natural sweetener, I would not recommend substitutions in this recipe. Without cacao butter, your result won't taste like chocolate. (Coconut oil would give a similar texture, but wouldn't have the chocolate taste and would melt if left at room temperature.) A whey/casein blend would probably need a larger cacao butter to protein powder ratio, as casein absorbs more than whey.
I don't usually count the carbs of calorie-free sweeteners. If you count them for the erythritol here, it'll add about 4g carbs per serving, but will not change the calories.
