Method

  1. Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl. Keep mixing until all the dry ingredients stick together.

  2. If you still find the mixture to be slightly dry, add in an extra tablespoon.

  3. Scoop out onto parchment paper and mould into flat squares (about 2cm tall).

  4. Cut into rectangles and roll in the remaining desiccated coconut. Alternatively, these can be rolled as balls.

  5. Leave to set for a few minutes, ideally in the fridge, until they are firm.

  6. These bars are best stored in an airtight container in the fridge.

Ingredients

  • 2.5 scoops of protein (I use a good quality vanilla whey protein — Ros and Kinetica are good Irish brands)

  • 20g raw cacao powder or cocoa powder if you don’t have cacao

  • 40g porridge oats

  • 40g unsweetened desiccated coconut, plus extra for coating

  • 50ml almond milk

  • Pinch of salt
