Paleo Protein Bar Recipe

Paleo Protein Bars By:   Paleo Princess

Paleo Princess here with Julian Bakery!  I just made some delicious protein packed paleo coconut bars and I’m hooked!  I was pretty leery to make a bar without any type of flour but I’ll say that you really don’t need it in this recipe because the coconut makes it fluffy on its own.  I have such a huge sweet tooth and admittedly it’s been very hard for me to give up all those wheat filled cookies and licorice so this bar not only satisfies my sweet tooth but it gives me a bit of protein too and I could always use more of that.  The protein powder, that is a Julian Bakery best seller, is as close to paleo as it gets; deriving from grass fed cows.  I am breastfeeding so the flax seed meal makes it a great lactation food!  I do not use raw honey as it’s not suggested to eat raw honey while breastfeeding but if you’re not, use raw. Often times I keep nuts and dried fruit next to my rocking chair so now I can add this to my goodies to grab a bite while I’m feeding my little one and my husband loves to eat these bars before he works out for a shot of energy.

    I just put these in the oven and can’t wait to taste them. You need to edit your recipe though. When I got to the end I thought, “when do I add the coconut and what about the flax seed mixture?” So I just assumed you meant to add the flax mixture to the wet ingredients and the coconut to the dry ingredients. So that’s what I did. Thanks so much for such a healthy and
    delicious treat!!!
