I was always making chocolate bean bars but I was getting tired of wrapping them individually for each of my kids. So I decided to make them into cookies and honestly they are now turning into my go-to snack for my kids and myself. (Almost everyday. I can’t stop) They are delicious.  

Can’t say no to, protein, fibre, and carbs all in one!
