Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Protein Bars

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Protein Bars

Basically Homemade Quest Bars!! Only 4g NET carbs, 1g sugar and 23g protein per bar! Need more protein? Divide the batter to make only 4 bars instead to bump it up to 29g protein! This is the perfect meal replacement that ACTUALLY tastes like dessert…HONESTLY!!

I have finally found a quick, easy, & amazingly good protein bar to make that even my husband loves!! Score!!

Just a few notes though:

1. You want the batter to be thick but blended.

2. You can keep it “raw” or bake it. Either way, it’s best to keep them wrapped in parchment paper so they don’t get sticky on anything (like the container they are being stored in or other bars).

Ok, so here we go with the recipe!!🎉🙌

Homemade Quest Bars
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Protein Bars🍫

4 scoops Infinite Labs 100% Vanilla Whey Isolate

1/4c natural peanut butter

1/3c erythritol or stevia

1/4c NuNaturals NuGrains Oat Fiber

5 tbsp water

1/4c Amber Lyn Chocolates Sugar Free Dark Chunks, chopped. (10% off code: cleanNdirtytreats)

In a large bowl, combine all ingredients except for the chocolate. If it is really dry, add another tbsp of water. Just make sure you don’t add too much or else it will be more goop than a bar.

Stir in chocolate.

Place onto parchment paper. Divide into 5 bars and mold. Refrigerate for at least an hour to firm up. It will taste just like cookie dough!! This is how it will look:

Store in the refrigerator.

🌟➡️You can also bake it at 350F for 3-4 min. My first picture above is showing the bar baked. Either way it’s Delish!!

Macros per bar: 242 calories, 12g fat, 13g carbs, 9g fiber (4g net carbs), 1g sugar, 23g protein.
