A snack that tastes like an oatmeal chocolate chip cookie with perfect amounts of protein, slow digesting carbs, and healthy fats? Sign me up! These are great for a snack or breakfast on the go. I use Cashew Butter because it has more of a mild flavor and makes these taste more like a cookie, but any nut butter will do.
- 1 cup Old Fashioned Oats
- 1 large Banana, mashed
- 2 Egg whites
- 1/2 cup Cashew Butter (or nut butter of choice)
- 1/2 cup Vanilla protein powder (or an extra half cup of oats)
- 1/2 cup Stevia
- 1/2 cup Unsweetened almond milk (or skim)
- 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
- 1/2 tsp Butter extract (or vanilla extract)
- 1/4 tsp Salt
- 2 TBS Mini chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Soften nut butter in the microwave fr 10-15 seconds if needed. Mix all of the ingredients except for chocolate chips until well blended. Pour into a 9×9 inch baking pan sprayed with cooking spray. Sprinkled chocolate chips on top. Bake for 15-20 minutes.
Let cool completely before cutting into 8 bars. Store in the fridge for up to 4 days (if they last that long).
