JSPEED, the original recipe I took this from used less protein powder and more ground flax. You could try that. You could also maybe use some coconut flour instead of whey protein and/or try using a different type of protein powder. Maybe rice protein.
I cannot use much whey; I just don't digest it well. I could put some dates, when I can afford them, into the processor, and that would even reduce the stevia needed. I used to buy fresh, organic Medjools from California, a 5 # box, but only a couple of times since they were still a bit expensive. My kids and I could polish them off--snacking straight from the fridge, a few each day.
I started with stevia over a decade ago, using the whole-leaf in slightly-cooled tea. The green stevia does have a tast, like greens, when cooked. This recipe is not heated too much; I can let things cool a bit before adding other ingredients, so I might try that in it.
Supposedly, the whole-leaf, or green, stevia powder or liquid, helps control blood sugar, high or low--like cayenne does for blood pressure. The white stuff does not, but does taste better once heated. I'm going to get a stevia plant this Spring. I have some seeds, but they are over a decade old--some seeds that old do grow. I'll try a few.
These are just what I've been looking for. I wonder if I could use raisins and less stevia because I just can't stand the taste of stevia.
Remember, nobody can go back to the very beginning and make a brand new start, but anyone can start here and make a brand new end.

Laura these sound great????what does the 1/4 cup plus 1/4 cup mean? Is that 1/2 cup steviva? Then you say 100gram dark chocolate, you used 90% dark chocolate and then anohter 1/4 cup stevia? Hmmmm? thanks
A healthy attitude of graditude and forgiveness.
