I have a long day of travel coming up this week, I’m excited for the end destination but I am dreading the long day of sitting on a plane. Years ago I would use days like this as an excuse to eat and drink what ever I wanted. The result of that was always the same - swollen legs, dry skin, bloating and days of poor sleep. Can anyone else relate?!

Now, I approach these days much differently. I prep healthy snacks and meals, hydrate with water and electrolytes like my life depends on it, and walk and stretch every chance I get. Now after long flights I typically feel fine besides a bit of jet lag from time changes.

These almond coconut snack bars are one of my favorite snacks to pack. They are delicious, protein packed and a filling sweet treat!



  • 1 cup raw almonds

  • 1/2 tsp sea salt, optional

  • 2 tsp cinnamon, optional

  • 1/4 cup water

  • 1/3 cup melted coconut oil

  • 1/3 cup chocolate chips ,optional

  • 1 cup protein (any flavor)

  • 1 unsweetened shredded coconut

  • 1 cup hemp seeds

  • 1 cup soft pitted dates



  • Place the almonds in a food processor or high-powered blender and mix until broken down into flour-like consistency. It’s ok if there are some large chunks.

    Add the dates, coconut, and hemp seeds and mix until it forms a crumbly mixture.

  • Add the rest of the ingredients and process into a thick dough.
  • Line a 7-8 inch square baking pan with parchment paper then firmly press the dough into the pan using your hands. Spend some time thoroughly pressing it into the pan to ensure a bar that holds together well. Sometimes I like to roll them into balls instead, especially when I am on the go.
  • Place in the fridge for at least 1 hour then lift out of the pan and cut into 12 bars.

If you are looking for a new protein powder to try in this recipe I highly recommend MRE Lite animal based protein powder. It has good quality ingredients, excellent flavor and mixes will into the recipe.
