Nut-Free Super Easy Protein Bar Recipe
in Snacks

I have nut allergies, and as anyone with knows, its hard to find good on the go protein without them.  So I decided to take up the challenge and make my own.  No baking, just blend 4 ingredients, freeze and dip in chocolate.  Yum.

Ingredients:

68 grams (2 1/2 ounces) freeze-dried strawberries,
68 grams (2 1/2 ounces) unsweetened shredded coconut,
68 grams (2 1/2 ounces) vanilla whey protein powder,
68 millilitres (2 1/2 fl ounces) coconut water and
85 grams(3 ounces) dark chocolate.

Instructions:

Place strawberries and coconut in food processor, pulse until rendered into mostly powder. mix in protein powder.

Place mixture in a seperate bowl, add in coconut water, and stir until mixture becomes a thick paste. Fill mold with mixture and place in freezer for 30 minutes to set.

Pop out bars from mold, and replace with chocolate, evenly divided and spread into the mold. Melt chocolate in the microwave for 1:00-1:30 on high. (alternatively, place tempered chocolate into mold)

Firmly press bars into mold, and spread excess along the exposed side. Place in fridge for 10 minutes to set.
