Ingredients for Cookie Dough Protein Bites
|oat flour||2 cups|
|protein powder||1/3 cup|
|nut butter, melted and slightly cooled||1/2 cup|
|maple syrup||4 Tablespoons|
|pure vanilla extract||2 teaspoons|
|mini chocolate chips (optional)||1/4-1/3|
Preparation for Cookie Dough Protein Bites
- Prepare a baking sheet or plate by lining it with parchment paper or a baking mat made of silicone. Set aside.
- Blend the oat flour and the protein powder together in a sizable bowl using a whisk. Mix in the peanut butter, maple syrup, vanilla extract, and milk with a rubber spatula or a wooden spoon. The consistency of the mixture should be similar to that of cookie dough in that it should hold together but not be sticky. If it’s too dry, add one teaspoon of milk to the mixture. If you’d like, stir in some chocolate chips at this point.
- Grab about 1.5 to 2 tablespoons of the dough at a time and roll it into balls, using a cookie scoop or a spoon. While you work on the remaining steps, place the finished balls on the plate or baking sheet. Refrigerate for up to one week when kept in an airtight container for as long as possible.
This protein snack, which has the flavor of cookie dough, is incredibly tasty. It is not difficult at all to prepare. If you are looking for a healthy alternative to something delicious that also provides you with energy, this is it.
I give it a score of four out of five stars and think you should give it a shot.
