Chocolate Hazelnut Krispie Squares

Serves: 6

So, for those of you who follow me on twitter and instagram you know that I discovered a new love on Tuesday, Justin’s Chocolate Hazelnut butter. Actually, love might be an understatement! It was absolutely mind-blowing delicious!! I couldn’t even believe it tasted as good as it did! I can’t believe I haven’t had it until now. I had purchased a single pouch at Target a few weeks back and never used it. Then yesterday I decided to try it out….well, the next thing I knew I was running out my door to Target to buy my very own BIG jar!! As soon as I got home I had to think of a way to use it (other than just as a spread). What better way than in a homemade krispie square..packed with protein!! Straight to the kitchen I went…..and this is what happened!!!

Fit Ingredients

  • 1/2c (128g) Justin’s Chocolate Hazelnut Butter
  • 2c (32g) puffed millet cereal (can sub rice krispies)
  • 3 1/2 scoops (80g) protein powder (I used vanilla but you could make these double chocolate with chocolate protein)
  • 1/2c stevia (adjust to your taste)
  • 1/4c coconut milk

************************************************

  • parchment paper
  • 5×7 in baking pan

Directions

In a bowl mix together your hazelnut butter and milk. Stir until it is fully incorporated. In a second bowl mix together your protein, sweetener and cereal. Mix your hazelnut butter into your cereal. Use some arm power and keep mixing and mixing until it is all coated. Spread into the bottom of a parchment paper lined 5×7 in pan. Refrigerate for 2 hours or overnight. Cut into 6 squares and freeze or refrigerate until ready to eat. I always wrap mine individually in plastic wrap for quick on the go grabbing! 🙂

These squares were chock full of delicious chocolatey goodness! They definitely satisfy a chocolate craving in the first bite!! They would make the perfect snack or after dinner dessert…..personally I’d choose this as a dessert topped with some vanilla greek yogurt 😉
