Almond Coconut Protein Bars

19 June 2010 One Comment

Tired of spending all your money on protein bars? Well here’s a little “secret recipe” that will allow you to make your own!

What you’ll need:

2 cups almonds
½ cup flax meal
½ cup almond butter
½ cup shredded coconut (unsweetened)
½ teaspoon salt
½ cup coconut oil
4 drops stevia
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 scoops of chocolate whey protein
Food processor
Tank Top

MAKING THE BASE
Throw on a tank top (yes, don’t be shy every pro owns one) and then drop almonds, flax meal, coconut, almond butter and salt into a food processor. Pulse for 10 seconds. Heat up a large saucepan on low. Once warm, pour coconut oil into pan. Add stir stevia, and vanilla into oil in saucepan. Stop for a moment, do a lat spread and be sure to push as hard as you can to bring that scapula out. Remember, a good lat spread has the arms flexed at all times and the shoulders square. Hold for a count of 20 then get read to cook this sucker. Add coconut oil mixture to the food processor (which is filled with all the stuff we blended earlier) and pulse until ingredients form a paste. Flatten mixture into a giant rectangle-shaded loaf and place onto a plate covered by wax paper. Chill in refrigerator for 1.5 hours.

CHOCOLATE TOPING
Once the mixture above has hardened, it’s time to add a chocolate topping! In a blender, drop 2 scoops of your favorite chocolate whey protein powder into 4 oz of water. Blend until a thin pudding-like mix is formed. Spread mixture over loaf. You’re almost done so hang in there! Return to refrigerator for 30 minutes and allow mixture to harden. Remove from refrigerator, cut into bars and serve.
