1/2cupgluten free oat branFor paleo option, use 3 T coconut flour
Line a baking tray (if using the oven) with baking paper and set aside. If using a microwave, simply grease a large plate.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the oat bran, coconut flour, sea salt, cinnamon and protein powder of choice and mix well.
Stir through the nut butter and sticky sweetener until a crumbly mixture is formed. Using a tablespoon at a time, add dairy free milk until a VERY thick batter is formed. Using your hands, form into a large ball.
Transfer the 'ball' onto the greased tray or plate and press firmly until a cookie shape is formed. Top with chocolate chips and either microwave for 1 minute or if using the oven, bake at 350 degrees for around 10-12 minutes, until firm and golden brown on the outside.
* I used a casein blend and a brown rice vegan blend. I do not recommend whey. You can omit the protein powder, but your cookie will be smaller ** Depending on the brand of protein powder and coconut flour, your results will vary- You may need less/more so add it in tablespoon at a time. These can be made in advance and frozen. They do not need to be refrigerated but are best kept refrigerated before packing for lunch boxes, snacks on the go etc.
