Part 1

  • 2 cups (145g) whey protein powder (either isolate or concentrate)
  • 1 cup (135g) raw sunflower seeds
  • 1 cup (75g) unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 heaped cup (115g) dried fruit
  • ¾ cup (95g) pecans (use extra sunflower seeds or pepitas for nut-free option)
  • 1 teaspoon cooking salt

Part 2

  • 3 large ripe bananas
  • 1 cup hot water
  • 3 teaspoons vanilla essence
  • ½ cup (85g) chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons coconut flour


  • Preheat the oven to 170C/350F.
  • Roughly chop the pecans, or break by hand. If the dried fruit is large, chop in to ½ cm size pieces.
  • Measure out and mix all the ingredients listed under Part 1.
  • Mash the bananas and add the hot water, combining well.
  • Add the mashed banana mixture to the previously-mixed ingredients. Add in the chocolate chips and the coconut flour, combining thoroughly.
  • Place the mixture in a square baking dish, either greased or lined with parchment/baking paper.
  • Place in the oven for 30 minutes, turning at the halfway mark. The bars will be ready when the edges are a golden brown and a toothpick placed in the centre comes out clean.
  • Cool in the pan for 20 minutes and then carefully flip out on to a cooling rack to completely cool.
  • Cut as desired in to 16 pieces. May be eaten alone or with berries and yoghurt for breakfast.
  • Store in the refrigerator for up to 5 days and in the freezer for up to 3 months. Best defrosted at room temperature or in the microwave for melted chocolate goodness.


Equipment: 2 mixing bowls, digital scales, measuring cups and spoons, large square baking dish, potato masher (or fork), parchment/baking paper.
