BLACKBERRY ALMOND PROTEIN SQUARES

TGIF BABY! I definitely needed a healthy protein snack to feed my muscles after my leg workout today. Now it’s time for work, but i’m sure these won’t last very long ๐Ÿ˜‰

*Recipe makes 9 portions.

Recipe for crust
1 1/2 cups almond flour
1/4 cup brown rice flour (or 2 tbsp coconut flour)
1/2 cup organic sunflower seed butter (or any nut butter)
2 tbsp organic flaxseed meal (or 1 organic cage free egg for non vegans)
2 organic stevia sachets
1/2 tsp organic pure vanilla extract
1 tsp gluten/aluminum free baking powder
1/4 tsp organic sea salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Mix wet and dry ingredients separately before bringing them together in a medium bowl. The dough might be a little sticky while kneading so don’t worry!

Spread out dough in a non stick greased square baking pan (greasing with coconut oil works best for non sticking in my opinion, or any type of healthy saturated fat like grass fed organic butter).

Pre bake for 8 minutes. When ready, remove from oven and top with my spicy blackberry jam (recipe is on the “sides and others” section of my blog, or type in “jam” in the search bar).

Place the crust with the jam topping back in the oven and bake for 12 minutes.

Remove from oven and let it cool for 20-25 minutes. Cut into squares and enjoy with any toppings of choice! (I topped these with unsweetened coconut flakes).
