    Not-tella Chocolate Chip Bars

    Primal Fuel
    I confess to breaking the Whole 30 no baking rule (you knew it was going to happen), BUT! I will have you know I did not having a single bite, lick, or taste during the entire creation process. Hubby was my guinea pig. Every two seconds I had him licking the spoon, telling me what it needed. He asked me why I was making something I couldn't have. Because it makes me happy & I wanted to do something nice for him & the 2yo.

    ANYWAY. I just wanted to try out a nutella knock off cookie, but the nutella I was making got too soupy, so I ended up taking the cake batter route. Here's what happened:

    ground up some organic raw hazelnuts
    added coconut oil (probably added too much)
    added dutch process cocoa powder
    added carob powder
    added liquid stevia vanilla cream
    added 4 eggs
    added 1 cup stevia in the raw
    poured into large bowl & stirred well
    added ghiradelli semi sweet chocolate chips (was tempted to add macadamia nuts as well)
    turned out batter into greased baking dish
    put in oven, 350 degrees. 15 mins or until knife comes out clean. Cut immediately, then allow to cool.

    So I know I broke a Whole 30 rule, but I feel like I still have some integrity. It took SERIOUS will power & focus not to lick my fingers or anything. In my mind, I've already won Whole 30!
    12 more days of meat only? No problem, I got this!

    P.S. I made up the entire recipe pretty much myself. Hubby says they're good! The 2yo concurs.

    Funny, I've been experimenting with a Nutella substitute, although not all that successfully. I did manage to make something that resembled a nutty chocolate fudge kinda thing when refrigerated. I also added some unsweetened baking chocolate to dates and blanched almonds, a bit of butter then ground it all up in the food processor. That was pretty tasty.

    I don't think you broke any rules, you didn't eat it! And omg, you have amazing will power. No WAY could I ever bake something and not try it.

    I'm really proud of myself. You'd never know they were flour-free! Hubby said for not using a recipe, they are pretty darn close to the real thing. I told him to make sure to take a bunch to work. There's only 10 left in a batch of 20.
