Oh dear. I'm in trouble here. I CANNOT stop eating this pudding. I may have a tummy ache soon - errrrr, damn. I can't even grasp at the fact that this dark chocolate pudding has 11g of protein in each serving. You honestly would never know this is a "healthy-fied" version of the ever so loved sugar laden, grocery store packed chocolate pudding. If silky, smooth, rich, decadent, chocolatey treats are your thing, THIS IS YOUR THING!
I've mentioned before my love of baking with blueberries. Cherries remind me of blueberries with how they bake - once they're warmed up, they literally burst with sweet and tangy flavor! Cobblers are typically super sweet, so I like to add a less sweet fruit to mine. It was the perfect combination! I mean I wouldn't be mad if you decided to plop a cold scoop of vanilla ice-cream on there, too. Mmmmhmmm.
Do you know what's better than pie? Pie cups! How cute are these? Yeah yeah, I know. Who cares what they look like. Do they taste good, Nicolette? That's what matters. Well....as a matter of fact, yes they do. They are absolutely scrumptious! A chocolate crunchy crust topped with a smooth, silky chocolate pie filling that is baked to perfection is pretty darn tasty to me. These are too tasty not to make!
Oh man. Have you ever taken a picture of something and thought "well shoot, this pictures doesn't do that justice"? Totally my thoughts with this dish. There's nothing real magical with how these lemon bars look. Let's discuss how they taste then, shall we. First you've got a perfectly sweet, crunchy crust that almost melts in your mouth when you take a bite. Then you've got a smooth, tangy, and delightful lemon layer that sparks the inner foodie in you. How is this even possible, you ask yourself. NO SUGAR?!?! Only 106 calories?!?! Let me handle that part, since it is mind-blowing. You just sit back, relax, and enjoy yourself a lemon cream protein bar!
