Summer Sanders of Radiantly Raw Lifestyles has the perfect  low glycemic recipe to follow if you’ve ever been disenchanted by the ingredients of store bought protein bars. Not only do many contain overly processed ingredients and too much sugar, they often taste bland or straight up gross…
NOT the case with her version! Raw, delicious, and packed with amino acids and all the nutrition that goes along with real, whole foods. They coudln’t be easier to make too!

Ingredients

1 medium batch

1 cup coconut flakes

1 1/2 cups almond flour (grind dry raw almonds in a high speed blender, simple as that!)

2 tablespoon chia or ground flax

1/3 cup raw almond butter

1/2 banana, smashed

1 scoop of protein of choice

1 to 2 tablespoon xylitol (depending on desired sweetness)

1/4 teaspoon celtic salt

1 teaspoon cinnamon or favorite spice

1/2 teaspoon powdered vanilla

METHOD

In a bowl, mix coconut flakes, almond flour, chia (or flax), almond butter, banana, protein, xylitol salt, cinnamon and vanilla. Really get into this! I use my hands. Get everything mixed really well together, then let sit in the refrigerator for five to ten minutes.

Methods/steps

1) In a bowl, mix coconut flakes, almond flour, chia (or flax), almond butter, banana, protein, xylitol salt, cinnamon and vanilla. Really get into this! I use my hands. Get everything mixed really well together, then let sit in the refrigerator for five to ten minutes.

2) Pull our some parchment paper (two pieces) and a rolling pin (use a big jar if you don’t have one) and place the clump of protein goodness on the paper.

3) Place the second piece on top and start to roll. Once you have the mixture about 1/2 inch thick go ahead and cut your bars.  You may have some leftovers on the sides, just roll into a ball and keep the process going.

These are best kept refrigerated and eaten within a month. You can freeze them if you want to make a big batch. They will be fine being out of the fridge for up to 3 days.

Enjoy!
