- 1/2 Cup Vital Whey Vanilla
- 1/4 Cup Flaked Coconut
- 1/4 Cup Coconut Flour
- 1/4 Cup Skim Milk

1. Place a skillet on the stove to heat. Once sufficiently heated, add in the flaked coconut. Toast until it is lightly browned, and remove from the heat.
2. Place a saucepan on the stove, filled about half-way with water. Place a glass bowl to float inside the water, and bring the water to a boil. Add the dark chocolate into the bowl, and use a double-boiler to slowly melt the chocolate.
3. In a separate bowl, mix the vanilla whey, coconut flour, and flaked coconut. Once the dry ingredients are mixed, add in the milk, stirring to ensure there are no lumps. Finish off with the dark chocolate.
4. Use your hands to form the 12 bars, put them in the freezer, and let them sit for at least 30 minutes.
For all Vital Whey Recipes
To minimize potential damage to the fragile protein components, please take the following into consideration:
- Avoid highly acidic fruits or juices (citrus, pineapple, kefir, etc).
- Avoid adding whey to any HOT liquids.
Our whey is minimally processed and it is best to avoid adding excess acid or heat within your recipe.
