I can’t remember how I originally invented this recipe, but I’ve been making it for years now. Having a batch of the No-Bake Paleo “Cookie Dough” in my freezer has saved me SO MANY times that I wanted to eat something carb and sugar-filled, when I needed a mid-day snack high in protein and fat and low in carbs to keep my blood sugar steady, or for some pre or post-workout fuel. This snack is great for average joes and MMA fighters alike. You can throw any number of things into the nut butter/coconut oil/protein powder base, but this is the combo I love most of all. Enjoy!


● 1 cup coconut oil, melted
● 1 cup Walnut Almond Cashew Trilogy Butter (almond or macadamia nut butter works, too)
● 1/2 cup HempForce Active Chocolate Protein powder
● 1 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
● 1/2 cup dried cranberries (or raisins or dried cherries)
● 1 cup slivered almonds (or pecans, walnuts, hazelnuts)
● 1/2 cup cacao nibs
● 1/4 teaspoon salt
● 1-2 tablespoons cocoa powder (optional)


● parchment paper
● small rimmed rectangular or square baking sheet/cake pan (mines about 6×8 with 2 inch rim)
● mixing bowl
● whisk
● large knife
● cutting board


Whisk coconut oil, nut butter and protein powder in a medium bowl until smooth. Add remaining ingredients an stir. Line baking sheet/cake pan with parchment paper, making sure it goes all the way up the sides. Pour in batter, and don’t let the batter touch the actual pan or it will be   very messy to remove. Cover and refrigerate for about 2 hours or until solid. Lift bars out with parchment paper underneath and cut into squares on a cutting board.

Store bars in refrigerator or even the freezer!! This recipe must be kept pretty cold. If they get too warm, the coconut oil will melt and they will turn back into a puddle. Not exactly something you can take on the go, but they’re great for home.
