No-Bake Coconut Cashew Protein Bars | SweetLeaf®

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!

    How much of the Coconut Sweet Drops do you call for in the recipe. I can’t make out if it’s supposed to be 1 tsp or 1-1/2 tsps. Thanks!

      Sorry for the confusion! The recipe calls for 1/2 teaspoon of Coconut Sweet Drops (we edited the recipe to reflect this). However, if you’re looking for more coconut flavor, you can use more. If you decide to experiment, let us know how it turns out! 🙂
