Coconut Almond Bars

How To Make The World's Most Super Nutritious & Delicious High Protein, Nutrient Dense Protein Bars, Nutrition Bars and Energy Bars

Use the following basic methodology to make Bars

You can vary which mixes you use and add additional ingredients to adjust the nutritional composition to meet your needs.
  • To make it into bars simply spread the mix out into one large mass making it approximately ¾-1" thick;
  • Alternately you can use something like the Slice Solutions or Perfect Brownie bake pans;
  • You can dehydrate or bake them (some even keep them raw by placing them in the freezer to set up);
  • If dehydrating, we recommend 118 degrees; it will take 2-4 hours depending on how moist or dry you prefer them to be;
  • If baking, we recommend approx. 300 degrees (lower will work as well and we do prefer it when time isn’t a concern; if you'd prefer a lower baking temperature, simply increase the baking time to suit the texture you'd like your finished bars to be);
  • Once finished dehydrating or baking, simply allow them to cool for at least 20 minutes
  • Slice them into whatever size bars you'd like;
  • Wrap them or place them in seal-tight Tupperware ® style containers for future consumption;
  • Refrigeration will keep them viable for about a week and a half whereas freezing will keep them fresh and edible for many months (although you'll likely eat them long before that).

Coconut Almond Bars

Follow the above steps using the following ingredients:
2-3+ cups of a combination of Coconut Almond SuperFood Protein Mix &/or Coconut Almond Superfood Macaroon Mix depending on how many servings you’d like to make;
You can also use either the Naturally Sweetened-Unflavored Superfood Mix and add Coconut Almond flavoring or use the Unsweetened-Unflavored version and add Coconut Almond flavoring and the sweetener of your choice;
Optional: to boost protein content add 1 or more scoops of either P3-Paleo Pumpkin Seed Protein or P4-Peak Performance Plant Protein (obviously use the appropriate flavor of either);
Optional: if you want whatever you’re baking to rise a bit, you can add 1 tablespoon of Baking Powder per cup of SFM used and mix it up before adding other ingredients;
Optional but recommended: 1 – 2 shredded carrots;
Optional but recommended: 1 – 2 finely chopped, mashed, or blended bananas;
Options: Add chocolate chips, more shredded coconut, &/or nuts if desired;
Optional if you’d like to add more slow-burning carbs: ¼ – ½ cup of oats per cup of mix used (be advised that oats are not Paleo);
Mix it up and then add some water sparingly if needed (often there’s enough moisture from the bananas and carrots depending on how big they are and how many were used): add water just a few ounces at a time and mix to allow it to be absorbed; between ½ – 1 cup of water will be plenty in most cases;
Mix thoroughly.
The consistency should be that of a relatively thick batter, like a cake mix (see preparation videos on the website);
You may need to add a little more water (1-3 ounces), remember, it’s a lot easier to add water than it is to take it away, so add water just a tiny bit at a time, you can always add more if needed. That’s why we suggested starting with just a few ounces. The biggest mistake most people make is adding too much water which makes if very difficult to get the mix thick enough.
Place on the cookie or baking sheet and follow the general directions as outlined above.
