The original recipe is from here. I just adapted it to my kitchen.
Okay so I’m that person who’s been overweight my whole life and always said tomorrow I’ll start exercising but tomorrow never comes. So I vow to myself that tomorrow I will actually get up and finish my first day of insanity and eat healthy. My goal is by this summer I will wear a bikini and not feel ashamed for the first time in 18 years

Clean Eating Cookie Dough Bars by Muffin Topless
- 15 Organic Dates (10 oz)
- 6-8 TB Sugar Free Vanilla Coconut Milk
- 4 TB Natural Peanut Butter
- 1 Scoop Casein Protein Powder (I used Chocolate)
- 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
- 1/4 Cup Dark Chocolate Chips (Could sub for cacao nibs)
Remove pits from the dates. Blend dates and peanut butter in a food processor or blender until finely chopped. Add in protein powder and milk (add a tablespoon at a time so you don’t make the mixture too wet). Add chocolate chips in at the very end, or you can fold in after to avoid chopping them up too finely. On a flat plate or cookie sheet, shape the dough into bar form and stick in the freezer for an hour. Remove after an hour and cut into serving size bars. (This is up to you, the size you choose will determine the macros for each bar). Wrap individually in tin foil or plastic wrap. I stored mine in the freezer as I like them really firm, but they would also store well in the refrigerator!
