Homemade 4-ingredient vanilla walnut protein bars are the perfect pre-workout snack to give you a boost of energy without filling you up or weighing you down. 


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 cup dates, packed and soaked if necessary
  • 1 cup walnuts
  • 2 scoops Nuzest Smooth Vanilla Clean Lean Protein
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut

Instructions

  1. If your dates are pretty firm, soak dates in boiling water for 10 minutes to soften. Add dates to the bowl of your food processor and pulse 5 or 6 times to break down.
  2. Add the walnuts, protein powder, and coconut. Process until fully combined and ingredients come together and form a ‘dough’.
  3. Line a 8×4 inch bread pan with parchment paper. Add ‘dough’ to pan and using your fingers, or the bottom of a glass, press the dough into the pan evenly.
  4. Chill in the fridge for 30 minutes.
  5. Cut into 8 equal squares.
