PB Chocolate Coconut Crazy Protein Bars

74

These bars are very misleading with all of that chocolate and coconut goodness... but they pack a punch of protein! With Whey protein and Peanut Butter, these bars have 12 g of protein per bar. And with bonuses like healthy fats from coconut oil, almonds, and flaxseed they are a winner! These bars also give a healthy dose of potassium and fiber from banana and oats, let's just say they are my go to protein bars because they offer nutrients and satisfy the sweet tooth without added sugar.

10
1 mashed banana
1 1/2 cups dry oatmeal
2 Tbsp. flax seed, ground
2-4 scoops protein powder
1/4 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup shredded coconut
1/4 cup coconut oil or butter, melted
1/4 cup slivered almonds
1/4 cup water
1 large chocolate bar (I used organic dark chocolate - at least 60% Cacao)
Mix all ingredients but chocolate together well (mixture will be somewhat sticky). Line an 8x8-inch pan with foil and spread the mixture evenly in the pan. Melt chocolate on the stove or in the microwave. Drizzle or spread over the mixture in the pan. Place the pan in the freezer for at least 2 hours. Cut into 10 -12 bars and wrap in plastic wrap and/or foil and store in the freezer. Thaw slightly before serving.
