Lemon – Coconut Power Bars

by on Feb.27, 2010, under Healthy Snacks, Recipes, Whey Protein Recipes

These bars pack nearly 16 grams of protein, 15 grams of carbohydrates and only 2.5 grams of fat.

They are low sugar; and a good source of vitamin C and fiber.  The shredded coconut and coconut flour not only add sweetness, but moisture.  Perfect as a breakfast bar or as a snack in between meals.

    Great Im in…. new at this.. so bare with me…where do you get the protein powder vanilla?

    The lemon coconut bars, because of the added protein and NO Butter,etc are a drier and denser consistency than you might like. You may wish to add a bit of coconut milk, applesauce, or some flax oil to moisten (and sweeten)them a bit more.(without added sugar). Come see me at the gym. Our pro shop carries all flavors of protein powder supplements.
