Cookies and Cream Protein Bars

I am super excited about this recipe I had to type it up right away for you guys because I knew it was going to be a home run. I wanted something different with my nightly casein, so I started thinking. I really wanted a candy bar. I would not allow it! I made myself a compromise: Cookies and Cream Protein Bars!

What you'll need:

  • 1 scoop (1/2 cup) Cookies and Cream Casein, or some other flavor of casein
  • 4 tablespoons shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 4 tablespoons of coconut flour
  • 1 cup of unsweetened almond milk
  • 3 packets of raw stevia
  • 2 squares of 90% dark chocolate
Mix together the dry ingredients (coconut flakes, casein, coconut flour, 2 packets of stevia). Add the almond milk to the dry ingredients and mix well. Make it into a doughy consistency before removing it from the bowl (and having a little taste of the batter!). Shape it in to 3 bars. Melt the dark chocolate in a microwave safe bowl for about 45 seconds and mix in the final packet of stevia to sweeten it a bit. Drizzle the chocolate over the bars. Put the bars into the freezer to harden.  I left mine in for at least 45 minutes. I am taking one to work for a snack tomorrow!

Each bar has 10.6 g fat, 7.5 g saturated fat, 147 g of sodium, 11.4 g carbs, 6.1 g dietary fiber, 1.5 g sugar, 11.8 g protein
