Units Scale

Protein Bars

  • 1 cup almond butter
  • 1 cup protein powder
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup Let’s Do Organic coconut flour
  • 1/4 cup Let’s Do Organic shredded coconut
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp salt


  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 2 tsp coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp shredded coconut


  1. Combine almond butter, protein powder, maple syrup, coconut flour, shredded coconut, vanilla extract, and salt in a bowl. Mix together until dough forms. (If your dough isn’t sticky enough, add an extra 2 tbsp maple syrup. The amount needed may vary depending on the brand of almond butter and protein powder.)
  2. Line a square baking dish with parchment paper. Firmly press the dough across the bottom of the dish.
  3. Combine chocolate chips and coconut oil in a bowl. Microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring between, until the chocolate is melted. Pour melted chocolate over the dough and spread in an even layer. Sprinkle shredded coconut on top.
  4. Chill in the freezer for 5 minutes or until the chocolate sets. Gently slice into 8-12 bars, depending on your preferred size. Enjoy!


  • Use coconut protein powder. For a rich coconut flavor, I recommend using coconut protein powder. If you don’t have any, you can use vanilla or chocolate protein powder instead.
  • Do not pack the protein powder. Gently spoon the protein powder into your measuring cup. If you pack the protein powder, you may end up using too much. This mistake will result in dry, crumbly protein bars.
  • Don’t omit the coconut oil. Coconut oil provides an important role in the chocolate topping. It softens the chocolate layer which prevents it from cracking (and breaking apart) while you slice the bars. Unless you are following an oil-free diet, do not omit it from the recipe.
  • How to make clean slices: In order to make clean slices, place a large knife under hot running water for 10 seconds. Then, wipe the knife dry with a paper towel. Immediately slice the bars, wiping the knife between each cut, until the knife is no longer warm. Repeat as needed until all bars are sliced.
