Instructions

Blend together boiling water, pecan butter and stevia in your food processor.

Add whey protein and blend to combine.

Finally, add the coconut flour and process to combine.

Allow to sit for 5 minutes.

Line a 1lb loaf tin with baking paper and grease with coconut oil.

Place mix into you prepared tin and spread evenly using your fingertips. It should be thick and dough like in consistency and not sticky. If it is sticky you can either go with it and place a piece of parchment paper on top. Spread evenly and allow to set in the fridge for a couple of hours. The final consistency will be softer. Or return to the food processor and add up to 2 tbsp more (15g) of coconut flour. Add 1 tbsp at a time until desired consistency is reached.

Allow to set in the fridge for a couple of hours or overnight regardless.

Beat together icing ingredients in a small bowl and sweeten to taste.

Slice bars into 6.

Spread 1/2 to 1 tsp of the icing onto each bar and sprinkle with pecan nuts.

Store in the fridge in seal tight container for up to one week or in the freezer for up to one month.
