Dairy free unsweetened chocolate chips/mix ins of choiceoptional
In a large mixing bowl, combine the rolled oats, oat bran, cocoa powder, sea salt and protein powder and mix until fully combined.
Add the 'nutella' and chopped hazelnuts and mix very well- Mixture should be slightly crumbly. Slowly add the almond milk, one tablespoon at a time until a very thick dough is made.
Using your hands, form into bite sized balls and roll in chocolate chips and set on a plate. Consume immediately or for best results, freeze for 10 minutes or refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Protein powder is optional- You can sub simply omit this and decrease the almond milk used. If you omit the protein powder and prefer sweeter breakfasts, add sweetener of choice. Protein powders differ by brand, so use the almond milk 1 tablespoon at a time.Adapted from Original Breakfast Cookie Dough
