Tired of spending $1.50-$4. for a protein bar that tastes like sawdust? Here’s an easy dirt cheap recipe for making your own vanilla coconut protein bars.
In keeping with our New Years Resolutions we’re seeking healthier (High protein) snack recipes that are also gluten free.
1/2 cup Vanilla Whey
1/4 cup of Flaked Coconut (try toasting your own!)
1/4 cup of Oat Flour, Almond Flour or Coconut Flour
1/4 cup of Milk (Regular, coconut milk, almond milk,etc)
4 Tbs melted 85% Dark Chocolate
Makes 4 Bars
In a small bowl mix the vanilla whey with the flour of your choice. Since oat flour is super cheap and easy to make at home, we opted to use that. Add the milk and coconut, mixing well. Shape into 4 bars. Melt the chocolate in the microwave (15 seconds at a time to avoid melting too fast and stir in between) or over a double boiler. Dip each bar into the melted chocolate, coating it well in about a Tablespoon of melted chocolate. Alternatively, you can pour the melted chocolate over the tops of each bar.
Freeze for about 20 minutes.
These are wonderful if made with a very, very dark chocolate.
