Chocolate Protein Bars

Recipe By: Judy Feskun

Here are the instructions for the home made protein
bars.  I have made some changes from the original due
to preferrences and different protein powder.  They
originally called for designer protein powder but I
use Cytosport so you may have to play around with this
to suit yourself.


2 tbsp butter
2 tbsp cream
3/4 cup of chocolate whey protein powder
1 cup chopped pecans (can use other nuts)
1/2 Cup unsweetened coconut
1 square unsweetened chocolate (Bakers)

Melt butter, chocolate, and cream in microwave. Add protein powder, nuts and coconut. At this point the mix is fairly crumbly.  Then I add warm water 1 tbsp at a time until the mixture just comes together.

Spread in a plastic lined loaf pan and chill.

The original recipe calls for 3 pkts of Splenda and instead of water to use syrup.  I do not know if my protein powder is sweeter than the one used but I found these sweet enough without the extra sweetener.

I think you will find that they take no more than 5 min to make and are a fantastic alternative to the commercial bars out there and so much cheaper.  Also there is no glycerin to be concerned with.
