  • ½ tablespoon vanilla extract

  • Pinch of salt

  • 0.8 ounces (25 grams) approved chocolate protein powder (the amount in one sample serving)

  • ¼ cup unsweetened shredded coconut

  • ½ tablespoon chia seeds

      For the chocolate topping: optional

  • 1/3 cup 85% dark chocolate chunks

  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil

  • 2 tablespoons chopped walnuts or other nuts

  • Extra shredded coconut 

   DIRECTIONS:

  1. Heat nut butter, coconut oil, honey, vanilla and salt in a saucepan over low heat. Stir until well combined and smooth, then remove from heat and transfer to a mixing bowl.

  2. Stir in protein powder until smooth.

  3. Fold in chia seeds and coconut.

  4. Prepare a baking dish lined with parchment paper. Transfer protein fudge mixture into baking dish and smooth out. The size of the baking dish will determine the size of the fudge bars, if it is a large dish the bars will be thinner.
