Posted on June 26 2016
Hi Angel Competition Bikinis Blog readers!! Taylor here from www.TayloredFitness.co and the gal behind @iLikeMyFitnessTaylored on Instagram and I’ve got one DEEEELICIOUS sweet-tooth curbing recipe for you to whip up! Oh and guess what?! It’s CRAZY Macro-Friendly, meaning you can fit these bars into ANY diet and still stay on track! WINNING right?! Follow IIFYM (if it fits your macros)? All my recipes are already pre-plugged into MyFitnessPal with the Macros for each so you can just plug and chug and keep working on that bikini-bod while still eating goodies and staying on track!
Can we start by agreeing that edible cookie dough = awesomeness.
I've shared my love of cookie dough actually through making this recipe over on my blog: Edible Raw Cookie Dough. I mean who doesn't love not having to wait for your cookies to bake, and just being able to dig right into the dough you're whipping up right there?!
oh you have self control when baking???
get outta townnnn!
you know you lick the spoon when you make cookies! so guess what?! you CAN with these bad boys if you want! orrrrrr you can actually not eat the entire batch of cookie dough and turn them into the REAL recipe itself. not judgement here!
oh and a pre-you're welcome, because i'm about to bring you a bar that is better then good. these soft fudgy bars are protein packed, gluten and dairy-free, aka: guilt-free and a moment of happiness jampacked into each bar.
so lets get to it shall we?
Gluten-Free Peanut butter Cookie Dough Bars
i mean look at that thing... smothered in a little coat of dark chocolate, ready to devour...
be right back..
kidding! I didn't leave this post just to go grab one out of the fridge.
but do you know how hard it is to WRITE about these recipes and post pictures of ridiculous food-porn and NOT be munching on it while doing so?!
but no worries, I go grab one after I click "save"!
and you won't be saving these babies for very long, because you, your family, whomever will quickly devour these up! while still keeping that waist line slim & trim!
so here's whatcha need:
1 scoop Slap Nutrition Peanut Butter Protein (use code TAYLOR for 10% off)
1/4 cup almond milk
1/4 cup organic almond flour
1 cup oat flour
2 tbsp extra virgin coconut oil
65g semi-sweet chocolate chips
Step 1: In a bowl toss in your slap-tastic protein powder, almond flour and oat flour (ground oats). melt your coconut oil then add right in. followed by the almond milk and VIOLA! everything is in the bowl ready for you to stir away!
Step 2: After you've combined everything together and it's nice and doughy, whip out a baking dish lined with parchment paper (easy clean up!) and plop it right in.
Step 3: Spread it all out evenly then stick in the fridge while you prep the chocolate layer that gives your dough that extra pizazzz! '
Step 4: Double broil your chocolate chips - do this by putting water in a pan, laying a glass bowl over top making sure the bowl doesn't touch the water, just hovers, and put on medium heat and continue to stir chips until fully melted.
Step 5: Get out that dough, pour chocolate over nice and even.
I dare you to not lick the melted chocolate.. i double-dog dare ya!
then stick your brick-o-heaven back in fridge just a few minutes for the chocolate to firm up then DIG IN! or cut into 8 bars and share with family & friends.. either
I hope you love these bars as much as I do and they become a new family and self-approved go-to sweet treat recipe!!!
