1 egg or 1 flax gel (1½ tbsp flax gel with 3 tbsp water, let sit to make gel)
2 teaspoons peppermint extract
½ cup applesauce (4 oz)
½ cup coconut nectar ( 6oz)
½ cup hot water
½ cup coconut butter
½ cup coconut milk
1 teaspoons vanilla extract
½ teaspoon peppermint extract
Candy Canes crushed for topping
Place all ingredients into a bowl and mix together, end with adding hot water. Batter will be thick runny. Spread protein bar batter into a lightly coconut oil greased 11x7 baking dish. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.
As bars cool, make up frosting. Then spread onto brownie protein bars and top with crushed candy canes.
Cut into 16-18 slices. Store in refrigerator if you have left overs.
If you do not have coconut butter can use any butter of your choice.
If you do not have coconut nectar can use agave or maple syrup.
