I found myself buying a lot of protein and snack bars and so decided to start making my own to save some money and also to know exactly what goes in them.
Based on a recipe from the Tone It Up website (find it here http://toneitup.com/2013/11/featured-recipe-no-bake-peanut-butter-cookies/), I have made this recipe quite a lot over the last few months. They’re tasty and it almost feels like a treat. Great to have pre and post workout as a protein boost.
1/3 cup of Agave Nectar or Maple Syrup
1/2 cup of almond milk. Coconut Milk or Non dairy milk of your choice
3-4 Tbs Cacao/Cocoa Powder
1/2 cup Peanut Butter
2 cups of oats
1 Tbs Protein Powder (I use Pulsin Pea Protein)
Heat Agave, non dairy milk and cocoa powder in a saucepan over medium heat, stirring occasionally until it comes to a boil.
Add the peanut butter, oats and protein powder and continue to mix.
Form mixture into cookies, balls or bites. Place on greaseproof paper and refrigerate until set.
Thanks for reading.
