Who doesn’t have a sweet tooth? Who doesn’t watch what they put in their mouths? And, who has time to make healthy, sweet snacks when life is all about being on the go? Well, I found this recipe for No-Bake Lemon Coconut Protein Bars that has become my go-to when I crave sweets, and hopefully it will become a staple in your house. It’s such a simple recipe, and you can enjoy these bars as a sweet treat or in conjunction with a workout. The combination of protein and healthy fats will keep you thoroughly satisfied.
I love it even more because it’s a healthy, protein-packed, no-bake treat that I can make in just minutes. It’s a win-win!
You Will Need:
1/2 cup coconut (or vanilla) protein powder
1/2 cup melted coconut oil
3/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
2 Tablespoons honey
2 Tablespoons lemon juice + zest to taste (I zested about 1/3 of a lemon)
2 Tablespoons coconut flour
Combine ingredients in a mixing bowl. Line a small baking dish with parchment paper.
Spread batter inside, using a spatula to flatten.
Refrigerate for 45 minutes. Cut into 12 bars and serve immediately. Enjoy!!
