I was looking for a good high protein, high fiber bar to help me get through the afternoon at school. Everything I found was high sugar and expensive, so I created these bars which have no added sugar and cost about .75 each to make.
This recipe makes about 6 bars of medium thickness. If you want more just double the recipe.
To a food processor bowl add and process until smooth:
1/2 cup each softened coconut butter
1/2 cup sliced blanched almonds
1/2 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
1 cup shredded carrots
2 scoops (1/4 cup) of protein powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp allspice
1/2 tsp ginger
1/4 cup fiber (chia seeds, flax meal, hemp seeds etc. Or a blend of them)
Process everything until it’s becomes a grainy paste. Line a square pan with waxed paper and press the mixture down into the pan, refrigerate overnight. After 24 hours remove the firmed mixture and cut into bars. They will be a little soft but wrapped in saran wrap or waxed paper they travel well. Keep the bars in the refrigerator for storage.
