Coconut PB & Chocolate Mint Protein Squares

Some things were meant to go together: PB and chocolate, chocolate and mint. Perfection is combining the flavor trio and having awesome protein squares.

For a nourishing combination of chunky peanut butter and dark chocolate with a hint of minty flavor, these cookie squares are a treat packed full of Phytonutrients and Flavonoids. Kaz's Coconut Peanut Butter & Chocolate Mint Cookie squares are win-win when it comes to snackin’ and being on the go. It’s like having your very own peanut butter cup but made exactly how you like it. Leave out all of the bad stuff of course, such as the sugar and artificial flavoring because these squares don’t need them. You could also melt gobs more dark chocolate on top or cover them entirely in the yummy cacao mass.
