No-bake Strawberry Coconut Protein Bars

No-bake Strawberry Coconut Protein Bars

These no bake strawberry coconut protein bars are perfect for a quick post-workout snack!

I don’t know about you, but after a workout I need food STAT! Especially after a run, I need food right away because the hanger gets real..

These strawberry coconut protein bars are chewy, fruity and packed with protein! They’re also extremely easy to make since they require only 7 ingredients and no baking whatsoever.

I have these strawberry coconut protein bars are on rotation along with my chocolate peanut butter protein bars. These homemade protein bars give you just the right amount of fuel to hold you over until you eat a full meal after a workout, since it’s best to eat within 30 minutes of working out. I love bringing them in a tupperware in my gym bag or even in my purse as a quick snack when doing errands.

almond flour

your favorite protein powder
