Just as I love to eat and cook, I’m also a big fan of the gym, of the weights, and obviously of the healthy food as of the protein, so every time that someone propose me to make a recipe high in protein I say yes, because that combines all my passions in one, plus I already resolve the issue of what to eat after train.
One of the recipes that I always wanted to make but it never came out very well are cookie bars, which are bars that have a texture and flavor similar to the classic vanilla cookies and chocolate chips, which generally, are not healthy, of course, but with this recipe, I achieve the same result and without refined products, and with a lot of protein for each serving!
These cookie bars are made with easy-to-get or homemade ingredients, without refined flours (I use oatmeal and coconut flour) and to replace the large amounts of butter that give the texture and consistency to the cookies I used cashew butter, although you can also use any other nut butter.
And of course the ingredient that differentiates these from the other recipes of cookies bars is the protein powder and the eggs. This time I used whey protein and 3 whole eggs, both to bind the mixture and to provide more protein to the recipe. But if you do not have, or do not want to add protein powder, you can rewind it for the same amount of oat flour.
Do you dare to try the recipe? You will not regret! If the tests tell me, send me an email or comment in the blog post how it came out, if you liked it, or that you would change it, I would love to listen to the advice of those who try my recipes! And if you share a photo on your Instagram or stories tag me like @gaspic_healthyberry so I can see it and I’ll share you in my stories!
Do not forget to share the recipe in your networks and with your loved ones, they will appreciate it as much as I do!
