Protein Bars

Our first protein bar.

🙂

What you’ll need….

  • 1/2c of unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/4c of flax seeds
  • 1/4c of sunflower seeds
  • 1/4c of chia seeds
  • 2tbsp of pumpkin seed protein powder (optional)
  • 1/2c of ‘Dastony’ tahini
  • 2tbsp of coconut oil
  • 2tbsp of coconut nectar
  • 2tbsp of raw dark chocolate
  • a pinch of himalayan salt

Mix all of the ingredients together, except for the chocolate.

Press the mixture into a parchment lined loaf pan.

Over a simmer pot of water, melt the two tablespoons of dark chocolate until just melted…….. with a spatula, spread a thin layer of the melted chocolate over the protein mixture and sprinkle a little bit of salt over the top.

Place them in the freezer for about an hour (maybe less) and slice!

Simple!

We recommend that these be stored in the fridge or the freezer………. we didn’t want to use a whole bunch of sticky sweet stuff, which of course would hold them together just a bit better at room temperature.

Enjoy!

      Hi Lilly!
      Sorry, unsweetened shredded coconut (Let’s Do…Organic is our favorite!).
      Thanks for connecting – I’ll change the wording a bit. 🙂
      Best,
      Erin
