I decided to try my hand at matchmaking.
I think it went well.
Boy did these two hit it off.
I swear on a lifetime supply of chocolate that these taste like just big slabs of straight Nutella. And anything that counts as a civilized way to eat straight Nutella is a win in my book.
One might say their personalities blend well. I don’t know who you are, one, but you are 1000% correct.
Their wedding was marvelous and everyone was absolutely ecstatic about the beautiful couple. A match made in heaven, really.
I must say they do make for a classy duo. They’re that couple you love having dinner with.
You ring the doorbell to their town home, 2 minutes early. You feel like you’re on your game whenever you’re around them. They inspire you because they’re such masters of detail themselves, meticulous and artful in everything they do.
Immediately inside you find yourself in a living room that is strikingly well designed. It’s picture-perfect chic that is still undeniably inviting. Utterly elegant yet approachable. Gorgeous, but not intimidatingly so.
You feel the need to take your shoes off, but they tell you it doesn’t matter either way. And they mean it. They’re just glad you came.
They bring joy into the lives of everyone who knows them, all without taking themselves too seriously. I love spending time with them.
‘Tis a thing of beauty, love is.
1 cup hazelnuts (2g) + 1 cup chocolate protein powder (6g) + 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder (4g) + 6 tablespoons erythritol (0g) + 1/4 cup coconut flour (6g) / 32 = 0.5g net carbs per piece
1 cup hazelnuts (4g) + 1 cup chocolate protein powder (69g) + 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder (4g) + 6 tablespoons erythritol (0g) + 1/4 cup coconut flour (4g) / 32 = 3g protein per piece
- 1 cup hazelnuts
- 1 cup chocolate protein powder
- ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 6 tablespoons erythritol
- ¼ cup coconut flour
- Line a 9x5 inch loaf pan with parchment paper and set aside.
- Add the hazelnuts to a food processor and process until smooth and buttery, stopping to scrape down as needed.
- Add in the protein powder, cocoa powder, and erythritol, and process until completely combined and crumbly. Because protein powders vary so much in texture and ability to hold liquid, add in almond milk one tablespoon at a time, processing thoroughly between each addition and stopping once there is enough liquid so that all the dry ingredients are incorporated. Add in coconut flour and process. Again, add almond milk in one tablespoon at a time and stop once the dough forms a ball. Press the dough into the prepared loaf pan. Cut into 32 pieces (using a pizza cutter for clean cuts) and devour.
