Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough DIY Protein Bars (with Video!)
I’m really surprised that I’ve never gotten sick with Salmonella. I used to eat raw cookie dough by the tub. THE TUB. Like, the 36oz tubs… from Costco. Yeahhh, those tubs. I’ll let that sink in a little while I cringe at myself. Now, I’d be lying if I said I didn’t miss turning on a movie and plopping myself down on the couch along with a spoon and a good ol’ tub of cookie dough… so I found a solution: these easy, no-bake Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough DIY Protein Bars!
It’s like cookie-dough-meets-protein-bar.
It’s like heaven.
These Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough DIY Protein Bars are sweet, buttery, and delicious — just like the cookie dough you’d buy from the store, only these are healthy!
If you are always busy and the on-the-go type, slice the protein bars and store them in plastic sandwich baggies in the fridge. That way, you can easily grab one (or two!) out of the fridge as you rush out the door. Oh, and these are also freezer-friendly! Let ’em thaw for a few hours at room temp and they’ll be the perfect consistency when hunger strikes.
When I look at my calendar and I know I’m going to be busy and pressed for time, I’ll always make a batch of protein bars. Knowing that healthy snacks are on hand keeps me sane. Especially at the busiest and most stressful times… you know, where all your brain could handle is opening the fridge door and grabbing food that’s already prepped and ready to go? I’ve been there, you’ve been there, we’ve all been there.
When life happens, these Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Protein Bars will have your back 🙂
Does this look healthy to you?
Nah, I didn’t think so 😉
These Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Protein Bars are soft, fudgy, and chewy with the occasional crunch from the mini chocolate chips. They don’t taste healthy in the slightest. You need to make ’em!
