empoweredsustenanceRECIPE: CAKE BATTER COLLAGEN BARS
These nutrient-dense bites feature concentrated protein from grassfed collagen as well as healthy fats from coconut butter. To up the sweetness factor, you can dip the chilled bars in melted chocolate... yum!
½ cup coconut butter, softened at room temperature
¼ cup + 1 Tbs. Vital Protein’s Collagen Peptides
1 Tbs. honey
1 Tbs. coconut oil
½ tsp. vanilla extract
Pinch of salt
Line a baking sheet with unbleached parchment paper. In a bowl, combine the coconut butter and collagen. Add the honey. When the honey is added, the mixture will become slightly crumbly.
Add the coconut oil, which will help "pull together" the mixture. If necessary, add another teaspoon or two of coconut oil. Add the vanilla and a pinch of salt.
Transfer the mixture to the baking sheet and form into a square with your hands. Score the square with a knife to create small bars. Chill in the fridge until firm, about 30 minutes. Then cut into bars along the scored marks.
Store in an airtight container in the fridge. If desired, let soften slightly at room temperature before eating.
