Some days you need a snack that’s quick and ready to be eaten on-the-go. As an inhabitant of our fast-paced world it’s inevitable that you’ll sometimes find yourself in need of instant food. But that’s where things get tricky…and big food mistakes are made that could potentially leave you on the crowded path to weight gain and self loathing.
Most packaged protein bars are laced with chemicals, fillers, and artificial ingredients. Quite frankly, most protein bars that you purchase at the store are hardly any better for you than a packaged vending machine snack. Sad but true
2½ cups unsweetened, shredded coconut flakes
½ cup water
1 teaspoon powdered stevia
¾ cup coconut oil
½ cup tahini plus 2 Tablespoons
2 cups vanilla flavored egg-white protein powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 Lemon, juice and zest
Line an 11″x7″ baking pan with parchment paper. Combine all of the ingredients in a food processor, pulsing until fully combined.
If the mixture is crumbly, transfer to a large mixing bowl and add more coconut oil, 1 Tablespoon at a time, working it into the mixture with your hands until it holds together. Press the mixture into the prepared pan and chill for 20 minutes. Cut into 1″x3″ bars. Keep your bars stored in the fridge – this helps keep it solid and also prolongs the freshness. Enjoy!
