Here’s an easy to make and even easier to eat protein packed post-workout snack or for that needed extra energy boost.
1 cup large-flake rolled oats
3/4 cup finely chopped pitted dates
1/2 cup crunchy peanut butter (or smooth peanut butter and add 1/2 cup of chopped nuts like cashews)
3 Tbsp. ground flaxseeds or ancient grains (or combo)
1/2 cup plain or toasted coconut (spread coconut on a parchment lined baking sheet in 300F oven until slightly brown & fragrant) – Optional
Handful of dark chocolate chips – Optional
*I added 1/4 cup chopped dry roasted pecans to crunchy peanut butter and a little Protein Powder.
1/4 Cup liquid honey
MIX all together in a large bowl. CHILL until firm, about 30 minutes.
The taste is similar to that of a yummy cookie and you know how much I love cookies!
