Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bars

I am in love with these soft chewy scrumptious bars and yes they are PACKED with PROTEIN. I have actually made them a bunch of different ways to make sure I had the perfect healthy cookie dough protein bar recipe!

I like to cut them into really small squares and freeze them. That way I take one or two out and eat it from the  freezer or microwave them for 5-10 seconds for a warm treat to kill a sweet tooth.  A more guilty pleasure is warmed up and eating with ice-cream (warm cookies and ice cream is the best!!)   I seriously LOVE these and I sure hope you do it! Have a fabulous day beautiful people!!

2 cups cake batter ON protein powder (Can sub out for vanilla protein powder)
1 C oat flour
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp cardamom (gives them really good  flavor )
1/3 C pbcrave cookie nookie  (Can sub out for other kinds of PB your bars will just have more of a peanut butter taste. And if you sub for another peanut butter take out the cardamom seasoning. BUT I would look for Pb craves cookie nookie first. Its at Cost Plus and Walmarts)
18-20ish drops English toffee stevia (, or some health food stores such as sprouts sell it)
3 tbs Walden farms Pancake syrup(Its calorie free) or SF maple syrup
5 tbs water   
Optional but nessecary: 16-18 ghirdeilli's milk chocolate chips
(The good stuff😍)

ALSO if you have a little food processor 
you may want to cut the recipe in half. Mine holds 6 or 8 cups and it barley manages this bad boy because the dough becomes so chewy and yummy!

This is so delicious. Its worth the search I PROMISE

Combine protein powder, oats, vanilla, salt, cardamom and peanut butter, and English English toffee stevia drops. Add in 1 tbs of water and 1 tbs maple syrup at a time and mix. Continue to add and mix until the alotted amount is used. Dough becomes very dense in the end . Once everything is well combined and the dough is formed  press into an 8X8 pan covered  in tin foil and sprayed with cooking spray (foil needs to cover the sides enough to pull out later for cutting ) 

See how the tin foil comes higher on the sides then the side of the baking dish. This is so once the bars are set you can pull the whole thing out by the side of the tin foil and cut them into pretty little squares. You dont have to do this. It just makes nice pretty looking bars!

Add chocolate chips by pushing them in the top of the dough ( you can mix them in but I like them this way because seem to use less)

Let set for at least an hour. You don't  have to do this either I just feel like the flavors mesh better and the bars form better for cutting if I wait. I normally make mine and leave them over night and cut them in the morning.Cut with sharp knife and  lift bars out of the 8X8 pan using the overlapping sides of the tin foil . Store in a baggie or Tupperware. I put them in the fridge or freezer..ENJOY!
