Chocolate Protein Power Bars

Makes 6 bars (2 x 2 bar per serving)


  • 6 dried figs
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter

  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup pecans (or any nut of choice)
  • 2 scoops chocolate protein powder

In a food processor, combine figs, coconut oil, and peanut butter. Process until blended. Add the cranberries, coconut, almond meal, cinnamon, and salt, and process until the mixture is well incorporated.

Add the pecans, chocolate protein powder, and water, and pulse until the mixture looks like cookie dough.

Transfer the dough into an 8” x 8” baking dish and press the mixture down flat with the back of a spoon. Store in the fridge for at least 1 hour to harden. Cut into bars. Store extras in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
