These Almond and Vanilla Protein Bars are the perfect mid meal snack.

Getting started
2

In a bowl, mix the almond flour with fine coconut flour and whey protein powder (vanilla or plain work well).

3

Pour in the coconut milk (or cream) and add pure vanilla extract. If the texture is too dry, add a few tablespoons of coconut oil.

4

Add Swerve or sugar.

5

Add flaked almonds.
(roasting the almonds shortly will release more flavour. Just throw them on a non-stick pan and roast for 1-2 minutes)

6

Process the mixture well and place in a square baking dish or any container (about 8x8 inch / ~ 20x20 cm for 8 pieces) lined with parchment paper. Press the batter in firmly to cover the whole surface and place in the fridge for at least 2 hours.

7

After the batter seems firm, remove from the fridge. Place it on a cutting board and cut into 8 equal pieces using a knife or pizza cutter.

8

Store in the fridge and enjoy!
