This one scored high marks as the closest tasting to cookie dough you want to eat raw — like don’t bother putting them in the oven because they rock like this — cookie dough success. You have to make these! Not just because I think these should be in everyone’s refrigerator at all times, but because they are a super easy snack that you can reach for after the gym or to add to a lunch away from home. They are a high-energy snack, high in protein, and double as dessert. What could be better!?

  • 1 cup oats

  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil in liquid state

  1. Blend or purée the dry ingredients (all but the last 3 ingredients) together until they are powdery like a flour. If you do not have a high-speed blender or food processor, use almond flour and ground flax.

  3. Form into 10 protein balls and refrigerate overnight for the best flavor.
