Keto-Friendly Matcha Protein Bars

by | Updated: April 5th, 2022

Topped with matcha and sweet, nutty coconut, these dark chocolate bars are an easy and nutritious snack. You’ll mix in Codeage Marine Collagen Powder along with your choice of nut or seed butter for a protein-infused, skin-loving treat. Earthy matcha powder offsets the rich, lightly sweetened chocolate-coconut layer to create a perfectly balanced, crave-worthy flavor profile.
