How to Make High-Protein Cookie Dough Bars
I LOVE how easy these bars are to prepare! Here are the simple steps to follow:
- Step 1: If you don’t have oat flour, you can make it yourself by blending oats in a high-speed blender or food processor until they resemble a fine flour. Here is the high-speed blender I use.
- Step 2: To a food processor, add oat flour, maple syrup and peanut butter. Process until the dough sticks together when you press it between your fingers. Scrape down the sides if needed.
- Step 3: Fold in the dark chocolate chips.
- Step 4: Line a loaf pan with parchment paper and press the mixture into an even layer.
- Step 5: Freeze for 30 minutes.
- Step 6: Remove the peanut butter bar from the loaf pan. Melt the chocolate and pour it on top of the bar. Spread evenly with a spatula.
- Step 7: Slice into bars and serve immediately. If you live in a warm place, you might want to place the bars in the freezer for a few more minutes before eating. Keep leftovers in the freezer. Enjoy!
Are No-Bake Cookie Dough Bars Safe to Eat?
Yes, these cookie dough bars are completely safe to eat because they are vegan and don’t contain eggs.
Since these bars are no-bake, they are rather soft and chewy. If you prefer crunchy bars, you can bake the cookie dough base at 350°F or 180°C for 10 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool completely and pour melted chocolate on top. This version is absolutely delicious as well!
How Do I Store these Cookie Dough Bars?
I like to store the cookie dough bars in the freezer but you could also keep them in the fridge in an airtight container for 3-4 days. They most likely won’t last this long anyway, especially if you live with chocolate lovers like I do 🙂
Are these Cookie Dough Bars Vegan, High-Protein, Gluten-Free, Oil-Free and Refined Sugar-Free?
Yes, yes, YES! These bars are made with gluten-free oat flour, peanut butter, maple syrup and dark chocolate – that’s it! I think they are a great dessert or post-workout snack idea because they only take 35 minutes to prepare and are rich in protein.
I hope you will like these Vegan Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Bars! They are:
- Easy to make
