  1. Combine drink mix, almond butter, oats, banana, and coconut in a medium bowl.
  2. Line an 8-inch baking pan with foil. Spray foil with cooking spray.
  3. Press mixture evenly into the pan and place freeze until firm, 2 to 3 hours. Cut into bars. Serve frozen, or let soften in the refrigerator.


  • Cook's Note:
  • I prefer to store these in the freezer for a firmer texture. If you keep these in the refrigerator, they will have a soft, gooey texture.

9.1.18 I agree with the recipe submitter. These bars do soften pretty quickly, but their consistency is spot on coming right out of the freezer. Don’t worry, you won’t break a tooth, it’s per...
