Coconut Protein Squares [Recipe]

I’ve received several requests for healthy homemade protein treats in recent weeks, so I thought I’d share what I usually make. These are great for post-workout or to refuel mid-day before you grab your next meal.

Store bought protein bars are typically filled with GMO soy, high-fructose corn syrup, colouring/additives, and a whole lot of other ingredients you don’t want to be putting into your body. Plus, most are high in sugar while being disguised as a nutritional product. And that’s just what’s in them. I have yet to find a protein bar that doesn’t taste like chalk.

These homemade protein squares taste way better than pre-packaged protein bars. They taste more like a candy bar and are made from ingredients that will fuel your body in a good way!

  2. 3 scoops vanilla protein powder

  2. 1 tsp coconut oil

  1. In a large bowl, combine all base ingredients, adding almond milk last. Slowly incorporate almond milk into mixture until you reach the desired texture (it should be easy to press into a pan)
  2. Pour mixture into a square pan that is lined with parchment paper
  3. In a small bowl, combine all topping ingredients and melt over stovetop on low heat. Be careful to not let chocolate burn.
  4. Spread chocolate topping over coconut bars. Top with chopped nuts if desired and place in the refrigerator or freezer to set.
