Protein bars are an easy way to ensure you get some filling protein, healthy fats and fiber all in one shot — whether you're enjoying them as a balanced snack or when you don’t have time to sit down for a meal.
But while many packaged protein bars available in grocery stores have fillers, too much sugar and other strange ingredients, these homemade Bone Broth Protein blueberry macadamia bars only contain real, recognizable foods. So skip the mass produced protein bars, save yourself some money and opt for this version instead.
These delicious bars are nutrient-packed with raw honey, dried blueberries, coconut butter and macadamia nuts — let’s hear it for healthy fats! They get an extra dose of deliciousness from protein powder made from bone broth. Thanks to the collagen and other beneficial compounds found in Bone Broth Protein Vanilla, it’s a great way to support healthy energy levels and joint comfort, while keeping hunger in check.

- 1 cup coconut butter
- 1/2 cup raw honey
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

- 1/2 cup macadamia nuts, chopped
- about 3 tablespoons water (for consistency, added as needed)
