Easy protein barsPosted: November 8, 2012
These bars are good for a chocolate fix, protein boost, yummy fast snack, and were even used as a dessert replacement when I first started taking sugar away from my family.
There are only four ingredients and they are all good for you. They are easy to make and you don’t have to bake or cook anything.
Major point score.
You can use whatever nuts you like, I use Walnuts. I use about 1 and 1/2 cups. (I use this liquid measuring cup, so I realize that this measurement isn’t exact…..so you can add as much as you like but this is about how much I use.)
Add the nuts to a food processor, and blend until they are like bread crumbs.
Then you just throw in all of the other ingredients.
- 1/4 cup Coconut Oil
- 1/4 cup Cocoa
- 15 Pitted Dates
Blend until it is mixed well. You may need to stop and scrape the sides down with a spatula and mix a little more.
Scoop that out into a wax paper lined pan and press it down evenly.
Cover and put in the fridge for a couple of hours.
When they are firm, cut them and eat them. 🙂
