nakEd vanilla whey & coconut protein bars

What’s with calling these bars nakEd bars? It’s just a play on words; a play on words in the context of nakd bars which I’ve always found rather curiously named. It’s not just that though, I’m calling these bars nakEd because they’re indeed naked – they have no coating to speak of, they’re just shaped into bars and refrigerated in bar-form. Let’s cut to the chase, shall we? Here’s the recipe:

Ingredients:

1/4 cup coconut flakes
1/4 cup vanilla whey protein powder (I’m using this one by Kinetica – sourced from grass-fed Irish cows, baby!)
1/4 cup quinoa flakes (this stuff)
2 tablespoons coconut flour
1/2 cup water or milk

Directions:

1. Mix all the ingredients in a bowl.

2. Shape into bars!

Now, the final bars WILL be a bit mushy so don’t expect to be able to carry them in a backpack full of Shakespeare without flattening them up like tortillas. The best way to carry them is actually in tupperware so they retain their shape. Attention here now: if you want to get a bit fancier with the mix, throw in a tablespoon or two of ground almonds in there or some chopped nuts (like walnuts, pecans, etc). You can also throw in a tablespoon or two of nut butter; that’d be great, in fact, as it’d make the bars richer in both flavor and texture. I personally am a big fan of these because of the coconut crunch they deliver! Ohhh
