Totally hits the sweet spot. When I am craving a bit of sugar, I grab one of these. Plus it’s a great way to sneak in some coconut oil. And unlike protein bars I used to eat, these are filling and satisfying with no residual sugar cravings.
- 3 to 4 tbsps of coconut oil
- 1/4c of chocolate dream protein
- 1/2c of ground almond meal
- 3/4c shredded coconut
- Optional – 2 tablespoons of honey – preferrably raw
Melt coconut oil and honey (if using) in a pot on the stove. When melted, remove from heat and add protein and almond meal. Mix together and then add shredded coconut. When all the ingredients are combines. Poor onto a plate or lid that is covered in wax paper. (surface needs to be flat) and form into a rectangle. Throw into the freezer for 20 to 30 minutes.
When solid cut into bars or cubes to snack on. Store in the refridgerator or freezer.
Bring as an easy breakfast, snack or part of a post workout meal. Post workout I would include fruit.
