Thank you all for your love and support!
1/2 cup vanilla whey or egg white protein
3/4 cup peanut flour
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp Celtic sea salt
1/4 cup butter or coconut oil
4 TBS Swerve (or erythritol)
1 tsp stevia glycerite (omit if using Swerve)
2-3 TBS water (just enough to hold dough together)
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. In a medium bowl, stir together the whey, peanut flour, baking soda, and salt. Cut in the butter using a pastry blender or your fingers until the butter lumps are smaller than peas. Stir in the water, butter, and sweetener to form a stiff dough. Take about 2 TBS of dough at a time to roll out long biscuit shapes (resembling a Twix bar). Place on cookie sheet. Bake for 7 minutes, turn off oven. Leave in oven for 3 more minutes to cool to crisp up. Place in freezer to freeze (frozen biscuits will hold the topping better).
Peanut Butter Layer:
6 TBS Natural Peanut Butter
6 TBS vanilla almond milk
Swerve confectioners to desired sweetness
Place all ingredients in a mixing bowl and stir until well combined. Add sweetener to taste. Place peanut butter sauce on top of the cookie and place in freezer to set.
1 CHOCO-Perfection Bar
2 TBS vanilla almond milk
In a double boiler, combine ingredients, melt the chocolate (or microwavable bowl, microwave for 30 seconds). Stir well. Drizzle over the peanut butter covered cookie. Place in freezer to set. Makes 12 individual Twix bars.

Stocking Your Freezer
Many people ask me, how do I stock my pantry, fridge, and freezer to make this healthy lifestyle easier? So, I have created a detailed video on how to shop at the grocery store where I teach you what words to look for on a label. I also step you through the things in my pantry (crackers, noodles, sauces, treats, chocolate) as well as things in my bathroom “pantry” because many products contain wheat (not to mention that everything you put on your skin also gets absorbed by the liver and affects our moods and how we lose weight).
To sign up for a fun tutorial click HERE to get started on the right path! It also includes a detailed shopping pantry list and website links where I find my favorite foods, treats, and products for a great price as well as other cooking tutorial videos. For a short example I always have these items stocked:
1. Blanched almond flour. I get a 25 box to save money.
2. Grass-fed beef: we get 1/2 cow in fall and spring to save money.
3. Organic chickens: from the local farmer to save money.
4. “Healthified” ice cream! (tutorial video in package)
5. “Healthified” chili and “healthified” lasagna leftovers for easy lunches. (lasagna and garlic bread tutorial video in package)
6. Extra loaves of Protein Bread (for me) and loaves of Amazing Bread (for Craig) (tutorial video in package)
7. “Healthified” push pops for easy treats.
You DESERVE this! Don’t wait another day!
What can you use instead of vanilla whey or egg white protein? I can’t find either!
You can get both here. 🙂 http://astore.amazon.com/marisnutran05-20?_encoding=UTF8&node=56
In directions you say to mix baking soda in with dry ingredients, but it is not listed in ingredient list. How much baking soda. Thankyou Maria for all your great recipes and treats for kids. It’s so great knowing what we’re feeding our kids and grandkids and taking responsibility instead of relying on companies – thinking they have our best interest at heart. They don’t – only lining their own pockets with profits.
Sorry, I fixed the recipe above. Thanks! It is a shame but most companies only worry about making money. 🙂
My goodness maria! I LOVE TWIX! Though cant imagine this with peanut butter for the caramel? Is there anything else you would recommend? CANT WAIT to make! You’re an angel!!!
Thank you! Yes! I loved the peanut butter ones. 🙂
i want to make these too! i just need to get some whey protein.. im going to use coconut flour instead of peanut.. and will xylitol be sufficient? i have stevia drops also. mmmmm. i used to eat these for breakfast in england!
Xylitol should work just fine in this. 🙂
Could I substitute almond or coconut flour?
Almond flour would work one to one as a replacement. Coconut flour is a different ratio and would take some tweaking of the moisture, etc. 🙂
Lately I am stressed out, have horriable anxiety & easily get irritable. I am not an unhappy person & I just don’t like feeling this way. I don’t want to go to a dr. & be put on any medication. I have read online about A2X, which includes Passion Flower, Ashwagandha, L-Theanine, Vit b6 & b12, magnesium & calcium. I am currently taking 1 5Htp & 1 Theanine in the AM. These help a little bit, but I still feel unhappy/angry. Any suggestions on what else I should be taking & how much?
2000 mg krill oil.
750 GABA in am and before bed empty stomach
Get vitamin d checked. Low ferritin and low progesterone is also an issue with anxiety A consult would be very helpful to know what your specific deficiencies are. 🙂
We don’t have chocolate perfection bars here 🙁 Can I sub it wiith some squares 85% chocolate?
i dont use swerve….could i use xylitol or honey in this recipe?
I would use xylitol. Honey is just sugar in the body. 🙂
I am currently out of chocoperfection bars, what could I use in place of that?
You could make your own. 😉
Awesome, thank you!!
“Cookie” directions say to “Stir in the almond milk” but only water is listed in the “cookie” ingredient list.
Sorry, fixed it above. 🙂
Also, you say, “frozen biscuits will hold the caramel better” but I don’t see any caramel?
I like to use just the cookie to make “Cinnamon Toast Crunch,” so I was curious as to how many calories and carbs would be in a serving? Thank you! 🙂
The nutritional info above is for 1/6 of the total recipe. 🙂
I read above instead of peanut flour I can use almond flour instead, can I use almond nut butter instead of the peanut butter or macadamia nut butter? Thanks
