Chocolate Orange Popcorn Protein Bars - high energy, low fat
  • 40g cooked popcorn
  • 50g creamed coconut
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 2 tablespoons marmalade
  • 150g dark chocolate
  1. Very lightly grease and line a 9 inch x 9 inch (22cm x 22cm) baking tray.
  2. Melt the creamed coconut over a low heat on the stovetop or in a bowl in the microwave. Check it often - it burns very quickly and you don't want that.
  3. Place the melted creamed coconut in large bowl with the popcorn, chia seeds and marmalade.
  4. Mix together well (it's easiest to use your hands but you'll manage with a wooden spoon if you don't fancy getting sticky).
  5. Press firmly into the baking tray, then pop it in the fridge.
  6. Melt the chocolate in a bowl in the microwave or over a pan of simmering water. Pour the chocolate over the popcorn mix, spreading it all the way to the edges.
  7. Put the tray back in the fridge and leave to set for at least an hour.
  8. Cut with a hot knife to avoid cracking the chocolate.
