I created this little puck of joy after my contest prep in November of 2011. It has been a staple in my nutrition plan ever since. I like to add different options at different times, depending on whether I want to make it a treat or if I want to make it an actual post workout meal. Here are the basic ingredients:
1 scoop (30g) Isoflex chocolate peanut butter protein powder
20g All natural peanut butter
1 tbsp Hershey’s cocoa powder
20g Raw oats
2 packs of splenda
OPTIONS: add your favorite nuts, dried fruit or dark chocolate chips (any candy is fine). Adding these options will take the calories higher so be aware of this!
Macronutrients: 335 cals
12g fat/ 24g carbs / 37g protein (30%fat/28%carb/42%protein)
Mix the ingredients. Add 1 Tbsp of cold water and mix. The texture will become sticky but could still be a bit dry. Each bowl is different so you may need to add a tiny bits of water at a time. Do not add too much water. Protein powder is very soluble! Once you have added enough water the mixture should resemble that of a haystack cookie. It will stick together and form a ball. I flatten this ball into a puck and place into a container or wrap it and place in the fridge until I am ready to eat it. I do keep it chilled if I’m on the road or I eat it right out of the bowl. It is a very tasty meal or treat!
This is a high protein treat that is easy to make, non bake and you can take anywhere! Enjoy 🙂
