-2 cups instant oat
-1 cup protein powder
-dash of cinnamon
-1/4 cup dark chocolate
-1/4 cup PB2 (mixed)
-1/4 sweetener (agave, honey, or whatever you want to add)
-1/3 cup dried cranberries
-1/4 cup sliced almonds
-1/4 cup homemade almond milk (you can find a recipe for this anywhere online)
-1/4 cup unsweetened apple sauce or make your own apple sauce
-1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
==In a large bowl, add oats & protein powder and mix around.
==In a medium bowl, add all other ingredients and nuke for 1-2 minutes. Stir until mixed well and chocolate is melted…not too hot though!
==Add wet ingredients to the dry and mix the heck out of it.
***NOTE: If you have a big Kitchen Aid Mixer with the paddle on it (see picture below) it makes this process A LOT easier and cuts the mixing time in half. Pricey investment but well worth it I’m telling you.
==Line an 8x8 baking pan with Wax Paper. Spray with Non-Stick Cooking Spray (you will regret it if you don’t).
==Empty bowl of dough in lined baking pan, cover, and refrigerate for an hour or stick it in the freezer. Whatever your preference is.
