Cookies & Cream Protein Bars

I love baking with vegan protein powder. Orgain sent me their newest flavor of protein powder, Cookies & Cream, and I couldn’t wait to make something with it!

I had 3 large ripe bananas, so I threw that in my mixer and went from there. I bake a lot with bananas & I’ve been asked by some of you for alternative options. Pumpkin puree is a great replacement for bananas. You will end up with a slightly different taste but the texture will remain the same.
