Scale

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups raw almonds
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 1/4 cup dried mango (about 45 pieces). Note – dried apricot and pineapple can be substituted.
  • 1/4 cup or 2 scoops (60 grams) protein powder of choice (see notes below for options)
  • pinch of sea salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon (optional)
  • 1/3 to 1/2 cup honey or maple syrup
  • 1/3 to 1/2 cup hot water (purified)
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. First add the almonds and coconut into a high powdered blender or food processor and grind until an almond meal like texture is formed.
  2. Pour into a large bowl and set aside.
  3. Next grind up the dried mango. They are sometimes tough to processes, so if you don’t have a high powered blender or food processor, you can use a knife to cut them into smaller pieces.
  4. Remove from food processor and mix the dried mango with the almond coconut mixture. Stir in the protein powder, salt, and cinnamon. Set aside.
  5. In a separate small mixing bowl. Combine honey or maple syrup, 1/2 cup of hot water, and vanilla extract. Stir to combine, then add to your dry ingredients.
  6. If the batter is too thick, just add more hot water, or even a little honey. If it’s too wet, add more protein powder or flour of choice. Mix well with hands then press into a lined 8×8 baking dish. Let bars cool in fridge for 1 hour or longer, then cut into squares.
  7. Keep refrigerated and consume within 5 to 7 days.

Notes

About the protein powder: Egg white protein works best with this recipe, however, you may also use 100% whey protein isolate, Pea Protein, or Brown Rice Protein. Depending on what you use, the texture and taste will be a little different, so adjust honey/water accordingly.
