Ingredients:

1 cup almond butter

1/2 cup maple syrup
2 eggs
1/2 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
1/2 tsp chia seeds (optional)
1 teaspoon baking soda

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray a 9-by-11-inch pan with cooking spray (I used coconut oil.)
  2. In a glass bowl, use an electric mixer to mix almond butter, protein powder, and maple syrup.
  3. Beat in the eggs, mixture will be sticky.
  4. With a non-stick spoon, stir in oats, coconut flakes, chia seeds and baking soda until combined evenly.
  5. Firmly press stiff dough into the pan using the back of a spoon or silicone spatula . . . with coconut oil or cooking spray.
  6. Bake for 12 minutes or until the top starts to look toasted and brown.
  7. Cool pan on a rack. Once cooled, cut carefully into 18 squares. Best if stored in an airtight container.
