Some. You are definitely going to love them! And, like a lot of my recipes, they’re totally customizable to your taste preferences– whether you like dark or milk chocolate, butterscotch or peanut butter chips, or even dried cranberries or cherries. Plus, you can use just about any protein powder you like and really get creative with the flavors.

  1. Made these last night – the kids went NUTS over them! They really do taste like cookie dough. I used steel cut oats (all I had on hand) which made them a little chewy/crunchy but still good. And fudge brownie flavored protein powder. Both kids are excited to have these as snacks after school today. And I am hoping my niece likes them, as they are constantly trying to get her to up her protein intake. Thanks for a great recipe!

  2. Thanks for providing macros! I want to try these but I’m wondering if there’s a substitute for the coconut oil in order to lower the fat grams?

  3. Can you use all purpose flour as opposed to almond flour if someone has a treenut allergy? If so, what would the measurements be if using all purpose flour? Thanks!
