    Just made it - didn't add the choc chips yet. Right consistency... think my vanilla protein powder is a bit overpowering though tbh. Doesn't look like a lot for 300+ cal to me... idk. Will throw in the fridge for a bit to see if that will help with the taste. Not sure if I will eat it yet ...

    Thanks for posting this! Gives me a visual for the serving size

    Agree that the angle of my original picture is deceiving. Although, for 300 calories it is very filling and definitely takes the edge off! Still experimenting with the recipe... maybe add a bit of vanilla extract, a tsp. of brown sugar, etc. Definitely worth playing around with!

    Thanks for sharing! Use my recipe as a base and play around with it. I hope you enjoy :)

    Only thing that worries me about making this is I'm afraid its going to be a small sad portion for 310 calories...

    Anybody try it yet?

    You could probably do without the cashew butter to cut some calories tbh!

    Or sub PB2

    I think if you subbed the PB2 you wouldn't need as much flour.

    I mix a couple tablespoons of PB2 with a single serve of Greek vanilla yogurt and toss in a tbsp a mini chocolate chips for my cookie dough fix. It's a fluffier consistency but does the trick for about 200 calories.

    Photos of entire sheets of cookies or pots of food with "calories per serving" written next to them are one of my pet peeves :smiley:

    I would double check calories on that recipe because #1 - it's 300+ calories for half the recipe, not all and 2. - what is a "serving" of chocolate chips?

    A serving of mini chocolate chips is 15 grams for 70 calories. I add them to my 30 grams of All Bran Buds (with 1/4 cup milk) every day. Fabulous snack.

    UPDATE: made it without the cashew butter and added a splash of vanilla extract and a teaspoon of brown sugar and it was just as good, if not better (and fewer calories)!

    I did a search of all of the above ingredients and may have found some alternative ingredients to help decrease the calories per serving (*I didn't work out the macros just calories)

    1 cup plain Greek yogurt- Use Dannon Light & Fit (80 calories)
    2 scoops vanilla protein powder - Quest Vanilla Protein (each scoop is 28g- you might even get away with a little less in each scoop but each scoop is 100 calories --> (200 calories)
    1/4 cup (28 grams) Bob's Organic Kamut Flour (110 calories)
    1 TBSP PB2 Peanut Butter (25 calories)
    1 serving - 15g Lily's No Sugar Added chocolate chips (55 calories/ 3g Impact Carbs)

    If the above recipe makes 2 servings then 1/2 of the above total calories would be: 235 calories per serving or 470 for the entire amount made)

    *Enjoy*
