I don't think it's possible to go wrong when you combine chocolate (or carob) and nut butter. You just can't. Thankfully, there are a million ways you can combine the two to create some pretty awesome treats. My quest to keep the fiance's belly full of clean foods instead of the bad stuff continues, and when we were on our flight to California last month B pointed out this recipe in Oxygen and suggested I try it out. Fast forward 6 weeks later... I finally got around to making it! Don't tell him I told you, but B has been teetering on falling off the clean eating wagon. It's mostly just because he's busy and most of his days are spent traveling in the car, which makes it hard to pack and eat meals. Most of my grab and go recipes are made for him so that he can have something to snack on while running around, this one is no exception!
2 cups oats
1/2 cup natural peanut butter
2 scoops vanilla protein powder
1 T ground flaxseed
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup carob chips
1. Combine everything in mixer and mix well.
2. Place a sheet of parchment paper on a baking sheet and smooth mixture out.
3. This mixture is really sticky, so I took a lid to tupperware and used that to flatten out the dough.... hands were just too sticky!
4. Place in freezer for 30 minutes. Remove and cut!
