I love adding snacks to my healthy eating plan.

These are easy to make and easily transported from home to the gym, then the office.

Using what you have at home while perhaps improvising on the ingredients — will work well.

If you prefer almond meals, sacrifice the oats.

I love how these recipes are completely flexible for anyone’s eating plan, nutritional requirements and preferences.

Enjoy this one to your heart’s content.

No Bake Protein Cookies

Makes 24 cookies
Prep: 20 mins
Chill: 30 min

What you need

2 cups (160g) rolled oats
½ cup (50g) vanilla protein powder
1 cup (260g) natural peanut butter
½ cup (120ml) honey
1 tsp. vanilla extract
¼ cup (60ml) water
⅓ cup (55g) white chocolate chips

What you need to do

  1. Place all ingredients in a high-speed blender and blend for 2–3 minutes, stopping to scrape the sides as needed.
  2. If necessary, add a little more water by the tablespoon to form a doughy ball. The cookies should hold shape, but also be soft enough so that you can press your thumb in the middle. Use 1½ tablespoons of dough to form cookies using your hands.
  3. Roll into balls and place on a baking sheet. Using a teaspoon, or your finger press a hole in each cookie to create the thumbprint.
  4. Next, melt the white chocolate in a microwave and place ½ teaspoon of melted chocolate into the center of each thumbprint.
  5. Place the baking sheet into the freezer and chill for 30 minutes until the chocolate has set. Remove and place in an airtight container. Store on the counter top for up to 5 days.
