Description

Made with gluten-free oat flour and naturally sweetened with maple syrup and dates, these vegan no-bake Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Dough Protein Bites make a great healthy and portable snack.


Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup gluten-free rolled oats, divided
  • 1 tsp chia seeds
  • ½ cup chopped pitted Medjool dates, soaked in warm water for about 5 minutes
  • 1/4 cup vanilla Vega Sport Performance Protein or your fave protein powder
  • 1/3 cup slivered almonds, lightly toasted if you want to enhance flavour
  • 2 tbsp hemp seeds
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 3 tbsp water
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp organic almond butter
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla and cinnamon
  • pinch of sea salt
  • 2 tbsp raisins

Instructions

  • Blend all except ¼ cup of the oats, plus the chia seeds into a flour. Transfer them to a bowl with the protein powder.
  • Drain water off the dates and process until finely chopped.
  • Add the almonds and continue blending, again until coarse.
  • Add all remaining ingredients except raisins to the processor. Process until a course wet mixture forms, then add about half of the protein powder/oat flour mixture. Again, process into dough.
  • Transfer the dough into the large bowl with the remaining protein powder/oat flour mixture, and remaining ¼ cup rolled oats. Mix well to combine, then fold in the raisins.
  • Chill for at least 30 minutes, then roll into 12 balls.

Notes

These protein bites are best served cold, so I usually store them in sealed containers in my fridge or freezer.
