{chocolate coconut protein bars}

Getting enough protein to build lean, strong muscle can be a challenge for anyone; it doesn’t have to be with this easy recipe! All you need is a few simple ingredients and a food processor to whip up wholesome protein bars that you can grab on you way to work, school, or the gym. 

Recipe: 

Bars:

  • 1 Cup unsweetened shredded coconut (desiccated coconut)
  • 1/2 Cup rolled oats (uncooked)
  • 1/3 Cup chocolate protein powder (I love Vega One)
  • 1/4 Cup flax meal
  • 2 Tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1/3 Cup cahsews
  • 1/2 Cup water

Ganache:

  • 2 Tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 2 Tablespoon melted coconut oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon stevia powder (optional)

Combine all the ingredients for the bars in your food processor. 

Once the mixture is well combined and easily sticks together, press the “batter” into a baking dish lined with wax paper.

 Chill the protein bars in the freezer for 5-10 minutes. While the bars cool, you can make your vegan ganache! Simply, combine the cocoa powder, coconut oil, and the stevia in a bowl and set aside. 

Remove the chilled bars from the freezer and top with ganache. The chocolate will harden fast; add toppings quickly. I like to add shredded coconut to my bars for extra coconut deliciousness! Cut the bars into small pieces for quick, portioned controlled, treats. Enjoy as a yummy, on the go, treat.
