I started this batch and only did about 1/2 cup milk. They were SO crumbly. I was able to roll the dough, but they started falling apart quickly. I would start with 1/2 cup and add more as needed. I believe I probably added about 2/3 cup total of milk (I used skim). As for my protein powder, I LOVE Shakeology so that is what I used. So not only are these packed with protein, but they FULL of vitamins and nutrients too. Shoot me a message if you’d like more info on why I love Shakeology so much!

I used dark chocolate chips but you can use your favorite. Enjoy Life actually makes a dairy free dark chocolate chip as well. We ate quite a few of these immediately and then kept the rest in the fridge. In the instructions, I added that I blended my oats to make oat flour. This was SO simple. Oats in a food processor and then pulse until it turns into flour. You could also buy oat flour or use your favorite type of flour.
