Protein Bars

Convenience without extra costs to you, or the planet

The most popular snack

Proteins bars are all the rage. Who wouldn't love a convenient snack that tastes like cookies, but is (maybe) healthy??

The problem with protein bars

If you're reading this, you're probably savvy enough to stay clear of the sugar-packed chemical shit storms masquerading as health food.

You've probably found a few brands your really trust and enjoy eating.

So what's the problem?

  1. Ingredients. You don't know where the heck that whey comes from, the quality of those egg whites, the mold status of those nuts, or if your "super foods" are ethically sourced.
  2. Cost. How much are you dropping on your handful or protein bars every week, or even your bulk box?
  3. Packing. It's easy to tear through a ton of these yummy treats, leaving cardboard and foil wrappers as evidence. Right into the landfill or ocean it goes.

Chocolate Banana Bread Protein Bars

  • 12 scoops banana creme bone broth protein, I use Ancient Nutrition
  • 1 cup cacao butter or coconut oil, melted
  • 1/2 cup seeds, like sunflower
  • 1/2 cacao nibs
  • 1 cup shredded coconut, divided
  • 1/4 cup granulated stevia (optional)
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/2 bag unsweetened chocolate chips, I use Lily's Sweets

1. mix all ingredients except chocolate and half of coconut.

2. when combined, fold in half of the chocolate

2. form into log on cutting board, press on remaining chocolate and coconut

3. Place in freezer until firm enough to cut, about 30 minutes

4. slice into 12 bars, store in airtight container at room temp, or freeze

That's all.

No bake, low carb, no sugar bars of heaven.

Enjoy, y'all.
