Isagenix Chickpea Vanilla Protein Squares

Always on the hunt for a LOW FAT Snack. A change from chocolate I tried squares.

I used 6 Tbsp of PB&Me for the peanut butter

I forgot to blend the chocolate chips into batter, 🤷🏻‍♀️ next time.

The Vanilla Protein Powder over shadows the Peanut Butter taste but they do taste great.

They are worth a second try!

Isagenix Chickpea Vanilla Protein Squares

I followed this recipe just as it was expect for sprinkling the top with peanut butter chips. I will use smaller dish to bake them next time so they will be thicker. 

20 minutes in the oven with 30 minutes cooling on the counter. I cut a few squares and then placed the rest in the fridge over night. They firmed up very well and kept their firmness when out of the fridge many hours later. 

I would make these the day before for that reason and might try adding a bit of coconut to the next batch. 

Isagenix Chickpea Vanilla Protein Squares are a testament to the ingenuity of modern health-conscious cooking

Seamlessly blending tradition with innovation. The history of chickpeas stretches back over 7,500 years, where they were first cultivated in the Mediterranean and Middle Eastern regions. These ancient legumes have been a staple in diets around the world due to their high nutrient content, versatility, and ability to grow in harsh climates.

Chickpeas, also known as garbanzo beans, are packed with fiber, protein, and key vitamins and minerals, including iron, phosphate, calcium, magnesium, manganese, zinc, and vitamin K. These contribute to building and maintaining bone structure and strength. The high fiber content aids digestive health, and the protein supports muscle repair and growth. Moreover, the presence of protein and fiber in chickpeas also makes them great for weight management as they keep you feeling full longer.

The combination of chickpeas with protein powder, as seen in the Chickpea Vanilla Protein Squares, is a perfect harmony for fitness enthusiasts and those looking for a nutritious snack. Protein powders, like the Isagenix IsaLean Creamy French Vanilla used in this recipe, are designed to provide a high-quality protein that aids in muscle building and repair post-exercise. When paired with the natural protein from chickpeas, you get a double dose of this macronutrient, making it a suitable post-workout treat or a satiating snack.

Now let’s delve into the recipe itself. Starting with the base of canned chickpeas eliminates the need for lengthy preparations while still providing all the nutritional benefits. Peanut butter adds a creamy texture and a boost of protein, while maple syrup offers a touch of natural sweetness without the need for refined sugars. The IsaLean Creamy French Vanilla protein powder not only injects a flavorful depth but also increases the protein content, making these squares a balanced source of energy.

The process is as simple as it is rewarding. After combining the chickpeas with the rest of the ingredients (save for the chocolate chips) in a blender, you are left with a smooth batter that is ready to be folded with chocolate chips, adding a rich, indulgent component to the squares. The result is a delicious blend of savory and sweet, with the chocolate chips providing a delightful contrast to the nutty, creamy base.

Variations of the recipe, like those submitted by Patricia Frederick, who looked for a low-fat alternative, show the adaptability of the recipe to different dietary needs. Using PB&Me, a powdered peanut butter, Patricia was able to reduce the fat content significantly while still enjoying the taste and texture of the squares.

Michael Lawrence's adaptation highlights the flexibility of the recipe in terms of preparation and serving. By suggesting to bake in a smaller dish for thicker squares and noting the improved firmness after refrigeration, he provides valuable tips for texture preference. His idea to sprinkle peanut butter chips adds another layer of flavor, and his mention of coconut suggests the potential for further experimentation with the recipe.
