Cherry-Coconut And Almond Butter Protein Bars

Written by: Drew Canole

Protein bars are perfects snacks for after a workout, during a road trip, on a hike, for an afternoon pick-me-up, during a busy day or even for a quick breakfast on-the-go.

The problem is that most protein bars on the market are made with lots of processed sugars and artificial ingredients. Those are not exactly good for your body – in fact, they can lead to inflammation, chronic pain and disease.

You really don’t want your snack to create health problems. You want your protein bars to have remedying benefits and to fill you up with lots of energy instead.

You are in luck. We have the PERFECT protein bar for you!

It’s easy to make. Being home-made, it is actually cheaper than buying all those bars at the store with hefty price-tags. They are full of anti-inflammatory omega-3s (thank you, chia and hemp seeds!) and good fats (thank you almonds, coconut, almond butter and seeds!).

These bars have the texture of a chewy cranberry crunch perfect bar except with a

total Organifi-ish spin, packed with protein, desiccated coconut, almond butter, dried cherries and seeds. They are insanely great! They are also vegan, gluten-free and sugar-free.

  7. Press mixture very firmly down into the prepared dish, it should be around ¾ inch high.
  8. Sprinkle with a few coconut shavings and hemp seeds, cover and cool in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours or until firm enough to cut.

What Our Clients Say*

During my FitLife transformation, I lost 70 pounds! That's why I signed up for the protocol, but the most exciting result is that I found ME in the process. I had been hiding under a pile of pounds, self-doubt, and grief! FitLife changed my life and I knew I had to share it with others.

-Lynne, Longwood FL

I started with Fitlife back in 2011-2012…I wrote into Fitlife asking for an extreme amount of help. I was 300 pounds, with high cholesterol, and Drew helped me transform my life. I lost over 130 pounds and I no longer have high cholesterol. Not only did I lose weight, so did my husband, who lost over 70 pounds!
