  1. This looks delicious!

  2. Ohhh yeah, I’m trying that FOR SURE. Except I don’t have hazelnut butter. well, once I get some, I’ll be sure to try this!

  3. I have everything on the ingredients list except protein powder. Can I just leave that out or should I substitute something?

    • Thanks Jessica. I’ll give it a try!

      The protein powder provides sweetness and a creamy texture, so if you omit it you will most likely have to add more sweetener, cocoa powder (1-2 tbs) and flax (maybe just 1 tbs). You can give it a tiny taste the night before and make any adjustments from there.
      Hope this works! 🙂

  4. Hey there,

    I just wanted to let you know that Ive been following your blog for quite a while now making most of your cookie dough dip recipes and loving them all. I made this and your oatmeal raisin dessert oats recipes last week and they were soooo good. I can honestly say that they were the best of all of the recipes Ive tried from you. I could not believe that what I was eating was actually good for me. It tasted sooooo delish and sinful! 😉 So, what I wanted to say is: THANK YOU and keep up the good work! 🙂
    I dont use protein powder, so I subbed in a mix of rice flour, cocoa powder and a tiny bit of a sugar sub to make up for it.
