Time Required: 17 (30 min. total)

This recipe makes 20 delicious protein bar cookies which capitalize on the butter-like consistency of flax meal and water gelled together. Granulated sugar and wheat flour also move aside for nutrient dense dates, almonds and oats with a little help from natural stevia powder. 4.6 grams of protein per cookie rev up a tired, post work out body, or supply energy when you are just on the run and need a healthy boost.
