Here is the recipe:

  • 1/4 Teaspoon Salt
  • 2 Scoops Protein Powder (Natural or Vanilla) (60g)
  • 1 1/4 Cups Sweetener
  • 1 1/2 Cups Old Fashioned Rolled Oats (120g)
  • 1/4 Cup Unsweetened Apple Sauce (61g)
  • 2 Large Whole Eggs
  • 1 Large Egg White
  • 10-15 Drops Liquid Sweetener
  • 1-2 Tablespoons (15-30g) Chocolate Chips (optional)

Combine all of your ingredients together into a bowl. Mix everything together. Take out a cookie sheet and line it with tin foil or parchment paper (if tin foil coat it with non-stick cooking spray).

  • Add whatever else you want to the mix/top such as nuts or other types of chips (white, peanut butter)
