Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Protein Bar Recipe
These are great to have around for snacks. I keep mine individually wrapped in the freezer for quick access!
4 scoops Optimum Nutrition Cake Batter protein powder
1/3 cup Nutracleanse (a combo of flax/psyllium) could also use ground flax
1 1/2 cups quick oats (not instant or old fashioned)
3 Tbsp mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup almond butter
2 Tbsp raisins
1/2 cup cold water
Mix all ingredients in a bowl, adding the water last. Knead with hands until mixed. Press into a 8×8 pan sprayed with cooking spray. Place in freezer for 20-30 minutes, cut into 10 bars, wrap each bar in plastic wrap, then return it to the freezer for storage.
