0g unsweetened coconut
60g vanilla whey protein powder
30g melted coconut oil
50g almond butter
2 tablespoons agave syrup (40g)
Almonds for the top of the bar
Dark chocolate to coat the bar
Add the coconut, protein powder, melted coconut oil, almond butter (make sure its soft) and the agave syrup into a large mixing bowl.
Mix well and separate into six portions.
Shape the portions into bars on a plate. Or roll into balls for a coconut almond truffle ball.
Add almonds to the top of the mixture and press slightly into the bars. Or put into the middle of the truffle balls.
Put the bars into the fridge for at least 30 minutes to set.
Melt your chocolate or make your own. For these bars I used 4 teaspoons of coconut oil, 6 teaspoons of cocoa and 5 drops of liquid stevia. This makes way too much chocolate though so pour the remainder into patty pans or moulds for a homemade chocolate snack later on. Sometimes I use the left over chocolate to coat strawberries or I add cashews or hazelnuts to it to make a nutty chocolate treat.
Dip the bars into the chocolate and then put back into the fridge.
Take out and enjoy these are super yummy!
