White Chocolate Collagen Bars (nut free, Keto, Paleo, sugar free, vegan, AIP friendly)
White Chocolate combined with body supporting collagen for a nutrient dense snack or dessert
- 1 1/4 cup shredded unsweetened coconut can use 1/2 cup coconut butter instead!
- 1/2 cup cacao butter
- 1 tbsp coconut oil or ghee
- 2 tbsp tapioca flour optional, but makes for more travel friendly bars
- 1/3 cup collagen powder vanilla or unflavored
- 1/8 tsp salt
- 1 tsp vanilla powder only necessary if using unflavored collagen powder
- 1/4 tsp liquid stevia or 2 tbsp Swerve confectioners sweetener
Blender Version (see * note below)
Add all of the ingredients to a high-powdered blender such as a Blentec.
Using the nut butter or batter setting, blend 2 or 3 times through. You want to assure that the shredded coconut is blended completely.
Stove Top Method (see ** note below)
Soften the coconut butter and cacao butter in a small saucepan over low heat. Be careful not to over heat, it should just be soft enough to stir. Remove from the stove.
Add the coconut oil, tapioca flour, collagen powder, salt, vanilla and sweetener if using and stir until well combined.
Line a 8x4 baking pan with parchment paper or use a flat plastic container in a similar size, or have a silicon mold ready.
Pour the mixture into the baking pan, plastic container, or silicon molds.
Chill in the fridge until firm, about 30-45 minutes. Then cut into 8 bars and enjoy!
*You can make these bars in a high powdered blender, which is the preferred way if you are using unsweetened shredded coconut.
**If you are substituting coconut butter for the shredded coconut you can make these bars in a small saucepan over low heat.
Use additional sweetener and vanilla only if using unflavored collagen powder. Also if you are not planning to take these with you as a travel snack you can definitely leave out the tapioca flour.
You can store these melt in your mouth bars in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks. If desired, you can freeze them and take out one a time as you wish.
You may want to let them soften at room temperature before eating.
