Protein Bars

Ingredients:

1 Cup = 8 floz

1/2 Cup of sliced almonds
1/2 Cup of Pecans
1/4 Cup of desicated coconut
1/2 Cup of coconut oil
1/4 Cup of Ground Almonds
1/2 Teaspoon of Vanilla extract
1 Tablespoon of raw honey (Manuka is best)
2 Scoops of Protein powder
Pinch of salt
1 Egg
1/4 Cup of Dried Cranberries
1/4 Cup of Sunflower seeds
1/4 Cup of Linseed
1/4 Cup of Pumpkin seeds

Method:

Pre heat your oven to 200 degrees.
Line a square baking tin or even a loaf tin with baking paper. Coconut oil helps to keep it in place.
Place the sliced almonds, Pecans and coconut in a food processor and whizz until it looks like bread crumbs.
Melt the coconut oil on a low heat and add the honey. Add the vanilla extract and salt.
Remove from the heat and transfer to a mixing bowl. Fold the whizzed up nuts and ground almonds.
Add the protein powder, seeds, cranberries and egg to the mix and make sure the mixture is evenly covered.
Transfer to the baking tin and cook for 10 minutes.
Remove from the oven and cut in to slices in the tin. Leave to cool for 10-15 minutes.
Once completely cool, wrap the bars in cling film and they will keep for up to 5 days.

I used Chocolate orange flavour protein powder and gave a bar to my friend James. He said they tasted like they shouldn't be healthy, and they definitely got the thumbs up!

Enjoy!
