Cashew Coconut Protein Bars - blog resize

Makes 4 bars

It’s best to weigh the ingredients, but you can use measuring cups.

2 tbs Truvia
2 tsp Vanilla Extract
1/4 cup Water
1 1/3 cup (124g) Isopure Zero Carb creamy vanilla protein powder
2/3 cup (80g) finely ground Cashews
2/3 cup (60g) Shredded unsweetened coconut (don’t sub flaked), plus more for coating parchment (optional)

Tear off a foot of parchment and set on the counter before starting. You will need to work fast after mixing up the ingredients, so it’s important to have your parchment ready.

In a small sauce pan add Truvia, extract, and water. Heat on low until warm and the truvia has dissolved. Stir in protein powder until it’s completely mixed through. It should be thick.. Then, working quickly, stir in cashews and coconut. It’s going to be very thick and sticky, don’t be tempted to add more liquid or the finished bars will be very soft and tacky feeling and not good for taking on your workout. Immediately pour onto the parchment and sprinkle a little coconut on top, if desired. Shape into a square and allow to cool completely. Cut into 4 pieces and store in the fridge.
