Quick and easy cookie dough protein balls! Makes 10 bars or 28 balls
  • 1½ cups quick oats (not instant or old fashioned)
  • ⅓ cup ground flax (could also use chia seeds)
  • 4 scoops (or 1 cup) vanilla whey protein (I used Whey Gourmet)
  • ½ cup peanut butter or almond butter
  • 3 Tbsp semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 2 Tbsp raisins (or use additional chocolate chips)
  • ½ cup cold water
  • *Optional* stevia drops. Taste the dough. If you find it isn't sweet enough, simply add some stevia drops, to taste.
  1. Mix all ingredients in a bowl, adding the water last. Knead with hands until mixed.
  2. Option 1: Press into a 8x8 pan sprayed with cooking spray. Place in freezer for 20-30 minutes, cut into 10 bars, wrap each bar in plastic wrap, then return to freezer to store.
  3. Option 2: Roll into balls, place in fridge or freezer in airtight container.
