There’s really nothing better than a good chocolate chip cookie. My dad loves to bake and I can guarantee that there is at least one type of homemade cookie dough in the fridge at home right now. I grew up believing cookies were a snack, everyone’s favorite dessert, and when paired with coffee…even a breakfast food. Cookies are a staple at my house.
And then I started to become healthier; let’s not pretend like I didn’t eat an entire chocolate souffle at dinner the other night, but on a normal day I can’t indulge as often as I’d wish. I’ve begun to find and create healthier options to the foods I love, mostly desserts. Today I’m sharing my spin on the chocolate chip cookie…in protein bar form!
The great thing about this recipe is that you just throw everything in your food processor (or Ninja, thanks Mom and Dad!) and it’s an easily adaptable recipe.
Maybe chocolate chip cookies aren’t your favorite, throw in some macadamia nuts and white chocolate instead or maybe try a little extra peanut butter!
It’s what I call a “dump” recipe, this time I added a little extra flax-seed I had as well as some chia seeds and they still taste delicious.
Let me know how you decide to make them!
