You can have your pie and eat it too with this fruit-inspired protein creation.


  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • ½ cup vanilla protein powder
  • 4 tbsp coconut sugar
  • 4 tbsp natural almond butter
  • 4 tbsp almond milk
  • 4 tbsp coconut flour
  • 2 tbsp cinnamon
  • 1 apple, sliced


  1. Steam your apple slices until they get soft. You can peel the apple before steaming it or you can leave the skin on—it's up to you.
  2. Make your bar my mixing the rest of the ingredients together in a food processor until you get a soft dough.
  3. Press the dough onto a small silicone brownie pan. Add your apple slices on top, and sprinkle the whole thing with some extra cinnamon or allspice.
  4. Bake at 340 F (170 C) for about 15-20 minutes or until an inserted knife comes out clean. Or if you want your bars really soft inside, just take them out while they're still a bit sticky in the middle! That's what I did when I made these bars, and they were delish.
  5. Let the bars cool down completely before slicing and eating.
  6. Note: You can substitute sunflower seed butter for the almond butter. You can use coconut or regular milk in place of almond milk.
