• 1/3 cup old-fashioned oats
• 2 scoops of Lean Body Naturally Sweetened Whey Protein Powder
• 1 cup nut butter of choice
• 1 Tbs. unsweetened almond milk
• 1/2 cup dark chocolate chunks
1. Blend oats until a fine flour.
2. Add two scoops of LBFH vanilla protein, and mix until combined.

4. Add 1 Tbs. of almond milk, and stir until fully combined.
5. Line a square cake pan with saran wrap, and press the mixture into the pan until firmly in place.
6. Place in the freezer for 5 minutes.
7. While your pan is in the freezer, heat up your chocolate chunks in the microwave until melted (in 30-second increments works best!)
8. Take out your pan and pour the chocolate over the top until completely covered.
9. Stick in the freezer for 10 minutes or until chocolate hardens.
10. Cut into bars and store in the fridge or freezer for up to a week!
