No-Bake Coconut Cashew Protein Bars
When you need a healthy snack on-the-go, these Coconut Cashew Protein Bars fit the bill! They require no baking and just need some time to set in the fridge. Makes a dozen healthy, low-carb, and without-added-sugars protein bars for the week ahead!
- 1/2 cup coconut butter
- 1/4 cup coconut oil
- 1/4 cup cashew butter
- 1/2 tsp. SweetLeaf® Liquid Stevia Coconut Sweet Drops™
- 4 scoops or 1 1/3 cup protein powder
- 2/3 cup flaxseed, ground
- 1/4 cup cashew or coconut milk
- Optional: top with unsweetened coconut flakes
In a microwavable bowl or small pot on stove top, soften together the cashew butter, coconut butter, and coconut oil. Stir to combine well. Set aside to cool slightly. In another bowl, whisk the protein powder and flaxseed. Stir the milk into the dry mixture. Taste the softened and cooled coconut cashew mixture for sweetness and adjust, if needed. Pour the wet into the dry ingredients and stir well. Line an 8-by-8-inch baking dish with parchment paper. Press batter evenly into the bottom of the dish. Press in coconut flakes over the top if desired.
Refrigerate 1 hour then slice into 12 bars. Wrap individually for a grab-n-go snack!
