These gorgeous babies are exactly like cookie dough in taste and texture but without butter, eggs, flour or extra refined sugar. It's true! They are also gluten-free and dairy-free and totally delicious. Store in the fridge to keep them cold, or freeze if you'll be taking them to work as a snack or stashing in a lunch box. Many yums with this one.
"If you want to make the bar like standard chocolate chip cookie dough, use vanilla plant protein powder instead of chocolate."
Notes: Chocolate chips are Lily's.
