Fod Bloog: Cinnamon Roll Protien Almond Bark

This was actually an accidental recipe.

It's mid December here in Myrtle Beach. That means it might be 70 degrees outside or it might be 30 degrees. It changes day to day. You roll with it, no big.

I had a run scheduled for Sunday. The stupid trail was closed and I knew those shit head hunters would be at Lewis Ocean Bay (I hate hunters with a passion, hope Cheney or some other asshole shoots them all in the face and they die in agony from face rot). 
Thus I had to run pavement. Yuck.

Well, Heather needed to go into work for a while, so I hitched a ride with her up to Murrels to go for a run along 17 and into the State Park.
I get really hungry after running, so I left a pack of Protein Almonds in the car for when she picked me up. And I'll be damned if they didn't melt.

I don't have a picture of them melted.

I really try my best not to waste food, but now I just had a big bag of sugary goo with almonds at the bottom. What to do?

Of course, throw them in the freezer.

My skill with a camera is only exceeded by skill with the written word.

I let the bag Protein Almonds sit in the freezer for a couple of days and just this morning decided to try them for breakfast.
And much to my joy, I had created Almond Bark!

See the marble effect there? That's quality Bark.

I know many people like to make Bark, especially around these holidays. But I just found a way to save you a bunch of time. Not money though. I'm sure these almonds aren't cheap. However, I can give you a nutrient content on my Bark: 

230 Calories per serving of 15 almonds.
10g of Protein and 16g of Fat. (This is a lot of fat, its a mix of saturated/poly/mono)
10g of Sugar,110g Sodium.

I can also tell you my Bark doesn't taste good. It actually doesn't really even look good. Im looking at it and thinking it kind of looks like oysters at low tide. Ever seen that? All bunched up on top of each other? Gross. Now I don't want to eat it.

Announcing my Third ever giveaway!
