Coconut Cranberry Protein Bars

Cranberry coconut protein bars stacked up.

These Coconut Cranberry Protein Bars are perfect snack to have on hand in the fridge. Packed with dried cranberries, walnuts, coconut, dates, and protein, these paleo bars are the perfect make ahead snack to fuel your day! They are also dairy and gluten-free.

Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 cup walnuts
  • 810 large soft dates, pitted
  • 1 cup dried cranberries
  • 11/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut (see note)
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 2 scoops collagen peptides
  • pinch salt

Instructions

  1. Add all ingredients to a food processor.
  2. Process until well-combined. This can take about 3-5 minutes. You’ll know it’s done when you can pinch together a portion of the mixture and it will stick together. Be careful not to over-process as the oil will start to separate from mixture.
  3. Prepare a small baking dish (I used a 4×7 inch rectangle glass dish) by lining it with parchment paper.
  4. Transfer the mixture to the prepared dish and press down until it is even and flat.
  5. Refrigerate the mixture until it is hard, at least 4 hours.
  6. Cut into 8-12 bars or squares.
  7. Store the bars in the refrigerator or freezer.

Notes

Look for the coconut that is made up of large pieces. If you can only find the finely shredded coconut, you may have to add more coconut oil to get the mixture to come together.
