AIP (autoimmune protocol) friendly carob brownies with fudgy date frosting definitely hit the spot when it comes to curbing my chocolate cravings. It doesn't taste like chocolate - get that idea out of your head or you'll be disappointed. It does, however, taste pretty ok and the texture is *chef's kiss* if you ask me. It's a healthier alternative to traditional desserts and is gluten free, grain free, egg free, sugar free, nut free, and could be made vegan if you eliminate the collagen peptides.
So without further ado I'm going to jump into this recipe for Pumpkin Pie Protein Bars that are AIP (anti inflammation protocol) friendly and are also fab if you're eating a paleo diet.
It takes about 20 minutes to prep these and another 2 hours for them to set up in the fridge before you can mow through them.
The flavor is straight up pumpkin pie and the texture is a little firmer. The real bonus is that they travel well in a ziplock or reusable silicone container because they are firm.
