These Better-For-You Coconut Candy Bites Satisfy Any Sweet Tooth

by lindsay zacharia, @thesimplebite - January 19, 2021

There is something about homemade treats that feels nostalgic! We've dreamt up tasty collagen gummies, and now we’re taking our love for all things candy to the next level with these Coconut Candy Bites. Inspired by the candy bars that dominated our childhoods (and present day, TBH), this collagen recipe calls for ingredients you likely already have in your pantry as well as Vital Performance™ Vanilla Coconut Protein Bars ($36 for 12-pack; shop now on vitalproteins.com). Not only will you fall head-over-heels in love with the decadent flavor, but you’ll want to add them to your regular rotation since these no-bake goodies take less than an hour to make.

Each Coconut Candy Bite features our low-lactose Protein Bar as the bottom layer, a creamy coconut filling as the middle layer and a crisp chocolate shell to top it off! While the Vital Performance™ Protein Bar gives the candy a nice protein kick, the coconut butter and coconut oil add a ton of healthy fats, while the cashew butter and honey create the perfect texture-flavor combination.
