1 1/4 cups @bobsredmill almond flour
1/4 cup @nuzest vanilla protein (or protein of choice) (you can also opt out of protein and sub more almond flour)
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/2 cup coconut oil
2 tbsp chocolate chips
Dash of salt
1/3 cup almond butter

1/4 cup coconut oil (may need 1 more tbsp if not runny enough)
1/4 tsp vanilla
For the chocolate topping
1/3 cup chocolate chips (or a chocolate bar)
2 tsp coconut oil
To make the crust, add maple syrup and coconut oil and melt until warm. (Melt on stove or in a microwave safe bowl for about 30 seconds). Add Bobs Red Mill almond flour, Nuzest protein and salt and mix well, until a thick dough remains.
Fold in chocolate chips then transfer to a parchment lined bread pan and press into place.
To make the middle layer, mix together all ingredients and warm in a sauce pan or in microwave for 30 seconds.
Once melted, whisk well until combined.
Pour over the cookie dough base and refrigerate for around 30 minutes or until firm. Once the caramel layer has hardened, melt your chocolate chips and coconut oil.
Pour over the caramel and refrigerate until firm.
Slice into bars and sprinkle with salt.
Store in fridge for 1-2 weeks or freezer for 3-6 months.
