COCONUT PROTEIN SQUARES

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!

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, coloring/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.

INGREDIENTS: 

For Base:

- 1 cup shredded, unsweetened coconut

- 3 scoops vanilla protein powder

- ¼ cup coconut oil, liquefied

- ¼ cup almond/coconut milk

- 2 tbsp honey

- Stevia (add to taste or you can omit if you don’t want it too sweet)

For Topping:

- 1/3 cup dark chocolate chips

- 1 tsp coconut oil

- Chopped nuts (optional)

INSTRUCTIONS: 

- 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)

- Pour mixture into a square pan that is lined with parchment paper

- In a small bowl, combine all topping ingredients and melt over stovetop on low heat. Be careful to not let chocolate burn.

- Spread chocolate topping over coconut bars. Top with chopped nuts if desired and place in the refrigerator or freezer to set.

- Once hardened, slice and eat!
