Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Line a 9-inch (2 L) square baking pan with parchment paper, allowing some to hang over the edges.

In a separate bowl, whisk together BOOST® High Protein Vanilla with eggs, vegetable oil, maple syrup and vanilla. Add to dry mixture and stir well to combine.

Pour batter into prepared baking pan; sprinkle with remaining coconut and bake for 25 minutes, or until edges are starting to brown and a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean. Transfer pan to a wire rack to cool completely.

Using parchment paper, lift out of the pan and cut into bars. Drizzle with melted white chocolate if desired.
