If you are a chocolate kinda girl, you are gonna love this recipe.
You know me… I love all things chocolate.
I don’t care too much for any other sweets, but I am a sucker for chocolate chip.
My kids loved this one! So, be sure your entire family tries it.
Warning… you may end up having to make 2 at a time.
I made one batch the first time and it was gone in 2 days. So, I made more.
These are actually more like squares than bars, but they are super moist and perfectly sweet and have a good combo of protein, healthy carbs and healthy fat so they are satisfying and filling.
Filling is important to me. I like to make sure when I eat a meal or snack that it holds me over to the next meal at least 3 hours.
What I’ve realized about myself and also hundreds of thousands of other ladies I’ve worked with is that if you try to eat a tiny little meal or snack then you don’t really feel satisfied and full and end up snacking more in between meals and end up consuming even more calories than if you just had a good meal or snack in that time.
That’s why it’s important to have protein in every meal or snack because protein helps you feel fuller longer and it also shuts down the hunger hormone.
I can’t wait for you to try this, you gotta let me know what you think.
Here’s the recipe.
🍪4 cups oats (I use gluten-free)
🍪1 cup almond butter
🍪1/4 cup almond milk
🍪1tsp vanilla extract
🍪1 1/2 cups mashed bananas or unsweetened applesauce
🍪3 scoops mPower Protein Powder
🍪4 packets Stevia or Monk Fruit
🍪1/2 cup chocolate chips (I use dairy free)
🍪Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
🍪In a large bowls mash the bananas (applesauce is good too, I rather the banana).
🍪Mix in the almond butter , extract and almond milk and mix well.
🍪Add in the mPower, Stevia and oats and mix until well incorporated.
🍪Fold in the chocolate chips, reserving a few for the top.
🍪Grease a 8×8 baking dish with coconut oil or avocado oil or spray and pour the 🍪mixture in.
🍪Sprinkle with the leftover chocolate chips.
🍪Bake for ~ 15-18 minutes or until done.
If you haven’t tried mPower yet, it literally makes anything you put it in delicious.
I add it to my oatmeal, coffee, yogurt, any baked snack or breakfast like this one, smoothies.
It has a medical grade multivitamin in it, so you can stop buying that and save on it and not have to swallow nasty pills and its insane good just mixed with water or milk.
It’s silky smooth, has no after taste and has prebiotic, probiotic and digestive enzymes so it doesn’t hurt your belly or make you bloated. It’s perfection!
Let me know what you think of the squares!

5 Things I’m Loving
Gimme Brow: this is the best brow filler/definer I’ve ever used and its super affordable. I love all things Benefit, its one of my fave make up brands. I use this every time I put on make up, it looks natural and not sticky or anything.Click here
24K Eye Mask: I have been using these for a few months and love it. I probably use them 3-5 times a week. When you don’t sleep well or enough and feel tired and puffy, or on the weekends when you go out and have drinks and eat out and feel bloated, these are great. I put them on for 15 minutes and makes a huge difference. Click here
Raw Zinc: This is a supplement I don’t go a day without and I don’t carry myself in the MMF Brand. I love this brand, its super clean. Zinc is amazing for immune support and right now it seems like everyone is sick so I don’t ever miss this. Theres tons of other benefits but my main reason is immune support.Click here
Cute Puffer Tote: I am always looking for a good and comfy every day bag that I can take to the gym, for errands, to the soccer field, etc. This one is perfect, I love the feel of it, its super cute, its very spacious and it comes in a ton of colors. I’m obsessed. Click here
Best & Cutest Thongs: If you’ve worn Hanky Pankies, then you are gonna love love love these. I got tired of spending so much on HP, and I want a seameless look and feel that lands on the right place and doesn’t push your skin in and over lol.. you know what I mean. I was determined to find some that were more affordable and I literally ordered like 10 different kinds on amazon and fell in love with these. I’ve been using them for about 2 years. I will never go back lol Click here
