If you have five minutes to spare, you can make these chocolate chip protein bars. Plus, the most complicated culinary skill they require is spreading the dough out with a spatula (or your hand). They're thick, hearty, and have 7g of protein each.

You'll need
  • 1 cup almond butter, drippy
  • 3 Tbsp almond milk, unsweetened
  • ¼ cup brown rice syrup

1. Begin by mixing together all of the wet ingredients (almond butter, almond milk, and brown rice syrup) in a medium-size bowl.
2. Add in dry ingredients (cocoa powder, protein powder, rolled oats, and chocolate chips) and mix again.
3. Form dough into a large ball. The consistency should be similar to cookie dough.
4. Line an 8×8" pan with parchment paper. Using your hands or a rubber spatula, press dough into the pan, spreading out evenly. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
5. Slice into bars or squares. Store in an airtight container or zip-lock bag in the refrigerator or freezer.
