Here's an easy solution to help you switch gears after all of the holiday sweets and treats to get back to eating healthy!

I found myself craving peanut butter blossoms so I whipped up a batch of raw cookie dough protein bars. I even used some dark chocolate I got for a gift! I usually end up eating mine with a spoon right out of the container when I need a treat. You can feel good about eating these “treats” as they are high in protein and are free from processed sugar.       Ingredients:

  • 1 cup Almond Meal
  • 1-2 scoops Cookie Dough Protein powder
  • 1/2 cup nut butter (I used ¼ cup Almond butter and ¼ cup Cashew butter)
  • 1/4 cup Pure Maple Syrup
  • 1 square Intense Dark 72% Cacao Chiradelli Bite-Sized Bar or 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips


  • Combine Almond Meal, nut butter, syrup in food processor and blend until smooth
  • Add in chocolate bar for an even consistency or stir in chips
  • Transfer “dough” to another container
  • Chill in fridge until cold

Give this healthy treat a try! Let us know the modifications you made to the recipe. There can be so many different combinations to try for example, use honey or agave instead of syrup, add in whole oats, use different kinds of nut butter, etc. Enjoy! Lisa @Innovative Directions in Health
