For 1 serving (89g)
INGREDIENTS YOU’LL NEED
500g old fashioned oats
403ml coconut milk (1 can)
200g PEScience Gourmet Vanilla Select Protein Powder (or other favorite protein powder, a vegan protein works too!)
200g natural peanut butter
150g chocolate chips
1/4 tsp ground pink Himalayan salt
Grind the oats in a food processor. Put the ground oats in a large mixing bowl. Add the chocolate chips and salt.
In a food processor or blender, blend the coconut milk, peanut butter and protein powder.
Pour this mixture into the oats and raisins and stir until it is all combined. It will be gooey!
On a parchment lined cookie sheet pour the mixture. Add another layer of parchment on top to help you spread the gooey and sticky mixture flat and even.
Place in the refrigerator to set. This will take a day. You will know they are all the way set when they remove easily from the parchment. You can still cut and eat them when they are still sticky, but it makes it much easier if they are all the way set. Makes 16, 89g bars. Store for up to 5-6 days in the refrigerator or store individually in the freezer so you have easy snacks ready for whenever you need a quick and filling snack.

Staying full and satisfied while eating in a calorie deficit? Is that even possible..?! It sure is with your food choices. Pictured are 3 of my favorite things to include in my meals when aiming for fat loss. We often think of big salads, and don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love big salads, but it’s nice to have plenty of options. Fresh fruit, a soup with lean protein and veggies, and sparkling water are my go to’s when I am dieting. If you find yourself having a really hungry day, enjoy all of these in one meal and for about 450 calories you will feel full for ages!
