This recipe was created to satisfy the cravings of the Chief at Skinny Chimp. This chimp LOVES to dunk a naughty biscuit in tea, so asked for my help to create a healthy, protein packed alternative. It needed to have the same delicious taste, manageability when dunking, and it also needed to be quick and easy.
So I give you… The Giant Protein Bourbon Biscuit! (They don’t need to be giant, you can make smaller ones if you wish).
All you will need is…
Prep: 25 mins
Cook: 50 mins
For the biscuit
30g Chocolate whey protein (I used Smart Protein’s Optimum Whey)
40g Vitafiber syrup (you can get it here)
5g No added sugar cocoa
For the filling
25g Chocolate Muscle Mousse (which you can get here)
Splash of water
You’ll also need some non stick grease proof paper and a rolling pin.
1Preheat your oven to 170’c
2In a small bowl add the protein powder and cocoa – combine the two fully before adding the syrup.
3With a small spoon or knife mix the syrup into the powder. You’ll need to squash it against the side of the bowl and almost squash the powder into the syrup.
4Once you have done this as much as you can then take a sheet of grease proof paper and tip out the crumbly mixture onto it.
5Put another sheet of grease proof paper over the top and using a rolling pin roll the mixture out so it’s around 1cm thick. Take away the top sheet and using a knife shape into a large square. If you are making one large bourbon you’ll just need to cut it in half (or smaller squares if you want to make a few smaller ones).
6Bake for 10mins then remove from the oven and allow the biscuits to cool while you prepare the Muscle Mousse.
7For this, all you need to do it add a splash of water to the powder slowly to make a thick spreadable paste.
8Once the biscuits have fully cooled, add the filling to one side, add the top and your done!
9Mine didn’t last more than an hour, but I’m sure they would keep for a day or two in an air tight container.
