Hey guys,

I got this recipe from the Body For Life book. I absolutely love it, tastes just like no bake cookies. I'll write it as I make it, I use all SBD friendly ingredients.

1/4 cup steel cut oats
1 1/2 cup water
dash salt
1 packet sweet n low
1 scoop chocolate protein powder of your choice
1 Tb. natural peanut butter.

Make steel cut oats per package directions with the dash of salt. Stir in protein powder, peanut butter, and sweet n low and enjoy. I always have a large glass of skim milk with this. Hope you enjoy.

Hey June,

I have never tried it, but I'm sure you could. Worth a shot if you don't like protein powder. Let me know how it turns out.:^:

Sounds really yummy. :)
I don't have the protein powder either - I'll be anxious to hear how they come out with cocoa...

I haven't actually measured this once it's cooked, however, I think 1/4 cup dried steel cut oats makes about 3/4 to 1 cup cooked oatmeal.

I made these this afternoon and loved it!

I'm hoping it will be enough to keep me out of the Trick or Treat candy. ;)
