Fruity Granola Flax Protein Cookie Squares

Here's another protein snack that’s ready to travel. Give this fruity, nutty treat a try.

Here’s a treat to knock your socks off! Stepping out of the norm of the typical double chocolate chip brownie or rocky road bar, we have here a delightful high protein cookie that doesn’t have the overwhelming sweetness of chocolate. These nutty superfood squares have a naturally fruity filling, and granola bits make up a crispy bottom crust. It’s almost like a pie, but without the heavy calories, who says you can’t have a piece and eat it too?
