It’s snowing here in New York City, again! And this adorable snowflake pan is one of the ways I am trying to embrace this winter weather. So here you have Coconut Snowflakes! Like chocolate bark, except coconut!

When planning your food for the day, do you ever find that your plan is pretty close on protein and carbs, but too low on fat? This happens to me often. And these Coconut Snowflakes are the perfect solution! I didn’t call them “protein” snowflakes because although there are more grams of protein than carbs (my general rule), there are way more grams of (healthy) fat in these beauties.

So embrace the snow and hit your macros by making yourself some of these Coconut Snowflakes!

Notes
A note about substitutions: because each type of protein powder has a distinct flavor and texture, I would not try substituting different types of protein powders in this recipe. (See my Recipe Basics video for examples of what goes wrong when you use the wrong protein powder.) Vanilla whey will likely take away from the coconut taste. The confectioner's style erythritol makes for a smooth finish; granulated sweeteners may be a bit grainy here.
