Building an awesome tasting cookie dough flavored protein bar is quick and easy at The Bar Shack. Just a handful of fresh ingredients mixed in the proper ratios is all it takes. In this short post, we outline exactly how to make your own raw cookie dough flavored protein bar.
Start by choosing either ‘Cheat Day’ or ‘Gourmet’ protein bars since we only offer cookie dough flavor as an ingredient option on those pages.
Step 1 – Base Ingredient Selection
There are two base options you can choose for a cookie dough bar. Choose ‘Soft & Chewy’ with either fiber syrup or honey. Fiber syrup is high in fiber and not as sweet as honey, but both options work well with this flavor.
Step 2 – Nut & Seed Butter
Choose plain cashew butter or chocolate honey cashew butter. Cashew butter has a mild, creamy flavor and is the perfect choice for a cookie dough bar.
Step 3 – Protein Powder
Choose whey isolate or raw grass-fed whey. Whey protein is the most neutral tasting powder so it won’t overpower the other ingredients in this bar.
Step 4 – Nuts & Seeds
Do not select any options from this section as they will not be needed for a cookie dough bar!
Step 5 – Dried Fruit
Do not select any dried fruit.
Step 6 – Flavor & Texture Enhancers
Select chocolate chips, coconut oil (or coconut mana), vanlla, and sea salt.
Step 7 – Flavor Oils
Choose cookie dough flavor.
Step 8 – Boosters
Choose cacao powder.
And that’s it! Combining only ten ingredients is all it takes to create an amazing tasting cookie dough flavored protein bar. You can always use this outline as a starting point and tweak this recipe to your liking by adding additional ingredients.
