What’s a girl to do with lots of hazelnut butter and chocolate protein powders? Make Chocolate Hazelnut Protein Tartlets!

The crust is similar to my other pie and tarte crusts, but I used chocolate Warrior Blend protein instead of the usual vanilla rice protein. Warrior Blend protein is a blend of pea protein with other (non-soy) plant proteins. It is one of my favorites for baking, and it makes some amazing Frosted Chocolate Protein Pancakes! I used these great silicone muffin cups to shape the crusts, here.

These Chocolate Hazelnut Protein Tartlets are filled with a simple mix of chocolate whey protein and hazelnut butter. I make my own hazelnut butter by putting hazelnut meal in the food processor. You can also make it from whole hazelnuts the same way.

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 325F (163C).
  2. Start to make the crust by mixing the hazelnut butter and water.
  3. Add Warrior Blend protein powder and mix well. If the batter is too sticky (sticks to your fingers), add a little more protein powder.
  4. Divide mix into 3 parts, and press each into a large silicone muffin cup. Be sure to press the crust in so that the sides come up higher than the middle.
  5. Bake at 325F (163C) for about 8-12 minutes, or until firm to the touch.
  6. Let crusts cool slightly while you mix the whey protein powder and water. Add in hazelnut butter.
  7. Remove crusts from the silicone cups, and fill with chocolate hazelnut filling.
  8. Top each with a hazelnut, if desired (not included in macros). Enjoy!
  9. Store in the refrigerator.
Notes
A note about substitutions: You might try using chocolate pea protein or rice protein to replace the Warrior Blend. I don't think whey would work well in the crust. Also, you might try using casein instead of whey for the filling.
Hazelnut butter can be made by processing hazelnuts (or hazelnut meal) in a food processor.
