Vanilla Whey Protein Bar Recipe (With Coconut) Most of the time, store-bought protein bars really aren't the best nutritional choice you could make. Stuffed with added sugar, preservatives and other additives, these products tend to have more than you would think in common with candy bars. Fortunately, you can get around this by craft your own protein bars. Here's a recipe, to get you started, for a delicious coconut and vanilla whey protein bar. ½ cup vanilla whey protein powder ¼ cup shredded coconut, toasted ¼ cup coconut flour ¼ cup milk (of choice) 1 ½ tbsp dark chocolate, melted Place the protein powder, shredded coconut and flour in a large mixing bowl. Add the milk and stir until thoroughly combined. The mixture should form a thick batter that can be molded. Shape the batter into three bars and place them in a small baking dish. Melt the chocolate and dip the bars in it. Alternatively, you can pour the chocolate over the bars. Freeze the bars for about 30 minutes and then enjoy!
