Primal Fuel Whey Protein Bars

The goal of this recipe was to create a protein bar, but it turned out to be so much more. While eggs and Primal Fuel [1] do add protein with delicious chocolate flavor, and macadamia and coconut butter add loads of healthy fat, these dense, moist chocolate-coconut-macadamia flavored bars could also make a fine cake topped with whipped whole cream and berries. This recipe, as it turns out, is a case when you can have your cake and eat it too.

If you’d like to decrease the amount of maple syrup you can; if you’d like to add a little more Primal Fuel or chunks of macadamia nuts [2] and coconut for more texture you can do that too. Or, take things in a more dessert-like direction by adding chunks of dark chocolate.

Servings: 12 bars

Time in the Kitchen: 30 minutes

Ingredients:

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 350 °F/177 °C.

The coconut butter should be at room temperature or slightly warmed so the texture is soft and runny.

In a food processor, blend the macadamia nuts for several minutes until a smooth, thick paste or “butter” forms.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the coconut butter, macadamia butter, maple syrup, baking soda, Chocolate Coconut Primal Fuel [4], eggs and salt.

Pour the batter into an oiled 8″x8″ baking dish.

Bake 20 minutes until the batter is set and has puffed up a bit. Let cool before cutting.

Primal Fuel Bars can be refrigerated or kept at room temperature.
