I don’t know about you but 4pm is when my will is at its weakest. Running on a morning-people circadian rhythm makes afternoons rough. Once i start working out after work I’m good to go but I definitely need to start incorporating a protein power boost. Larabars have been rocking my world but its time to go home made. Blue cocoa protein bars are a lovely start.
1/3 cup seeds (pumpkin/pepitas, sunflower, sesame)
1/6 cup raw coconut shreds (unsweetened)
2 tbsp nut butter (I use Justin’s chocolate hazelnut)
1 tbsp coconut oil
2 tbsp almond flour
1 tbsp 100% cocoa powder
½ tsp vanilla extract
1 scoop Hemp protein powder
1 egg white
¼ cup dried blueberries
Preheat oven to 350F.
Toast seeds on a cookie sheet until golden brown (shaking the tray periodically).
Dump in blender/food processor and pulse until slightly larger than the consistency of bread crumbs.
Melt coconut oil and nut butter together in the microwave (aprox 30 seconds on high).
Stir in vanilla extract and a dash of salt if you’re the salt type.
Stir in seed mix, almond flour, cocoa powder, and protein powder until well blended.
Stir in egg white and blueberries last.
Press into a muffin tin or an 8×8 pan/baking dish.
Sprinkle extra blueberries or coconut on top if you’d like.
Bake for another 10-15 minutes until coconut starts browning.
Let cool and slice it up!
