Optional Toppings


Base Instructions

  1. Line a 9x9 inch baking pan with parchment paper.

  2. Preheat oven to 350F.

  3. Making the Flour. Turn 2 cups rolled oats and 1 cup dates into a fine flour using a food processor or high-velocity blender like the Vitamix.

  4. Mixing it all together. Pour the oat/date flour into a large mixing bowl and stir in 1 cup rolled oats, then stir in 3/4 cup peanut butter and 1 1/4 cup Liquid Muscle Caramel Apple Milkshake. Mix until well incorporated.

  5. Bake. Press the dough evenly into your baking pan and transfer to the oven. Bake for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, make the frosting (instructions below).

  6. Let sit then spread. Remove the base from the oven and let it cool 15 to 30 minutes, then remove it from the pan and spread the frosting on top. Cut into 9 squares.

  7. Store. To be stored in the refrigerator for up to 7 days.

Frosting Instructions

  1. Using the same mixing bowl, whip 1/2 cup Liquid Muscle Caramel Apple Milkshake, 1/2 cup vanilla whey protein powder and 2 tbsp natural peanut butter until smooth. (I used a hand mixer)

Recipe Notes

  • The frosting is optional. If you want a really no-fuss, super quick recipe, these are also perfectly moist and tasty right out of the pan!
  • If Liquid Muscle isn't available in your area, you can simply replace the product with 1 cup egg whites, 1/4 cup maple syrup, and a tsp vanilla extract. (for the base only) For the frosting, you could simply spread your favorite nut butter on top!
  • You can slice the slab into any amount of servings you want. there is a useful tool to select the number of servings needed at the top of this recipe card.
