Yeah…so these were my little experiment but that experiment turned out so good! The great thing about these is that you can change them up, flavor wise. I felt like vanilla, so therefore, I made them with vanilla seasoning. You can opt for unflavored pea protein powder instead of vanilla or even get another flavor!
2 cups pitted dates
2 cups whole rolled oats
1 scoop vanilla pea protein powder
1/3 cup cashew milk
1/8 cup chia seeds
1/8 cup flax seeds
1 tbsp vanilla extract
1 tsp sea salt
Optional: top with chocolate chips
Pre-heat oven to 350ºF
Chop dates in a food processor, then add the rest of the ingredients, except for the cashew milk.
Add the cashew milk after mixing together all of the other ingredients. Mix until clumps form and everything starts sticking together.
Place parchment paper on the bottom of a small square baking pan, 8 inches or you can use a loaf plan for thicker bars.
Press the mixture into the bottom of the pan on top of the parchments paper.
Bake at 350ºF for 15 minutes.
Take out, cool and cut in to bars or bite size pieces and store in the refrigerator.
