1 square unsweetened baker's chocolate
2 Tbls. butter
2 Tbls. heavy cream
3 pkts. Equal (I use 1/8 cup granular Splenda)
3 scoops (1 cup) Chocolate Designer Protein (Any chocolate whey protein may be used)
1 cup chopped peanuts (I use chopped pecans)
1/2 cup unsweetened coconut (hence the above!)
2 Tbls. Sugar Free syrup or maple syrup (or water in a pinch)

Directions
Step: 1Melt chocolate and butter in microwave for 1 minute; stir until completely melted. Add Equal and heavy cream and stir 'til creamy. Add protein powder, peanuts, coconut and stir until mixed pretty well, add syrup (or water), and mix thoroughly (you may need to knead with your hands at this point as mixture will be very stiff. Line a bread loaf pan with plastic wrap and press in mixture firmly and evenly. Chill till firm. Cut into 6 bars.
