Jamie Eason's LiveFit Recipes: Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Crisp

Jamie Eason proves that chocolate, peanut butter, and protein can coexist in one delicious, nutritious treat.

Chocolate is delicious on its own, but it's even better with peanut butter. When combined, these two ingredients are best friends. Of course, they're also incredibly unhealthy. The solution? Add protein to balance out the relationship!

My Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Crisp recipe is gluten-free, made with organic ingredients, and doesn't contain any crazy chemicals you can't pronounce. It's a quick, easy, and sinfully delicious protein treat. This recipe is really sweet, so consider making it a special indulgence.

Ingredients
Directions
  1. Pour the crispy rice, protein powder, whole oats, and crushed almonds into a large bowl and shake gently. Avoid stirring to keep the protein powder from settling on the bottom.
  2. In a small glass bowl, combine the brown sugar, peanut butter, cocoa, honey, and vanilla extract and microwave at 30-second intervals, stirring until combined.
  3. Add the peanut butter mixture to the crispy rice mixture and stir with a rubber spatula until every piece is coated.
  4. Spread the mixture evenly into a 9x13 Pyrex dish or use cookie cutter shapes as molds* and fill with the mixture, pressing firmly into place. Place the 9x13 Pyrex dish in the freezer for at least one hour. Allow the crisp to soften a bit before cutting the squares, or simply break off pieces with your hands.
  5. Store in the freezer.

*If using cookie cutters, be sure to remove them before putting the crisp in the freezer.

I think a lot of people think that there is no gluten in oats.

When she says 5g of sugar in the whole thing she is talking about how much sugar that is *strictly* from the brown rice puffs. Clearly there is more than that from the honey alone. It seems like it'd be a great dessert substitute for people who can't get away from the sweet tooth or who are on a slightly dirty bulk, but personally I would definitely down the sweeteners so that I could eat more lol :P

So, I'm dying to make these, but I CANNOT find a brown sugar substitute (like Xylitol, Splenda, etc.) except for a half/half Splenda-brown sugar blend. Is there anything else I could use to replace the brown sugar and still get a good taste?

So if i understand correctly, this is an alternative to a portion of starch when following your jamie eason 12 week program diet, where you have a meal that consists out of a portion of turky/chicken/white fish, and a portion of starch, and if i count the kcal of your portion of starch for a woman it's always around 25 grams of carbs, so this cookie would be equal to "a portion of starch" ?

Someone please correct me if i'm wrong.

Thanks!!
Great program
