2 cups gluten-free flour

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 tsp salt



1/2 cup cashew butter

1/4 cup maple syrup

1/4 cup coconut oil

1 tsp salt



200 grams dark chocolate

  2. In a bowl, beat the butter until light and fluffy. Add the maple syrup and vanilla, and beat until combined.
  3. Stir through the flour and protein powder until combined. If the mixture is a little dry, add small amounts of sweetener.
