Cookie Dough Protein Bars!!
I've been making these into cookies for some months now, the inspiration came from a chickpea chocolate cake I make my brother (which tastes exactly like normal cake)
The only ingredients are chickpeas, peanut butter, sweetener, hemp protein, oats and chocolate chips! How's that for a protein hit?The only problem was the sweetener. I'd been using brown sugar, but I wanted healthier. So, I got inventing!
For those who couldn't really give a damn about protein ( a well know side effect of the "but where do you get your protein from?") these are a completely healthy form of cookie dough, have no added sugar and still taste naughty!
This recipe is a mix between these baked hummus balls (inspiration, mine is quite different) and date syrup (I love date syrup!)
Plus, there's bunnies in my photos!
Triple Protein Cookie Dough
Vegan, gluten free, No added Sugar
3 Tbs apple juice
large handful dates (about 125g)
1 Can Chickpeas
1/4 Cup natural peanut butter
1/8 tsp salt
1/4 cup protein powder (optional)
1/2 to 1 cup Oats
3/4 Cup choc chips
Whiz the dates with the apple juice until smooth. Add the chickpeas and process and pulse again until completely smooth. Add Peanut butter, salt, and protein and process again. Mix in oats and choc-chips, this amount really is to personal preferences. Also check if it's peanut buttery enough. It's really personal taste.
Press into a tin, and store in fridge or freezer.
