— Carrots ‘n’ Cake

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup Classic Plain Muuna cottage cheese
  • 1 cup Oats
  • 1⁄2 cup Creamy almond butter
  • 1⁄4 cup Coconut oil, melted
  • 1⁄4 cup Cocoa powder
  • 1⁄4 cup Brown sugar
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 tsp. Vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp. Sea salt
  • 1/3 cup Chocolate chips

Instructions

1. Preheat oven to 350° F.

2.  Combine ingredients, minus the chocolate chips, in a food processor until smooth. (You can also mix by hand, but the food processor makes for a “smoother” protein bar.)

3.  Once combined, stir in the chocolate chips by hand.

4.  Line a 9×9 baking dish with parchment paper and then evenly pour in batter.

5.  Bake for 30 minutes.

6.  Remove dish from oven and allow to cool.

7.  Cut into 10 bars. Refrigerate until you’re ready to eat. Note: For a more portable snack, store bars in the freezer.
