    why cant we use old fashioned oats i feel like they are better for you

      Old Fashioned oats don’t cook up as quickly so it will make the bars taste raw.

    I finally got around to making these – they were perfect! I’ve been on the hunt for a wheat free, bean free (not a fan of the black bean brownie trend) high protein brownie that’s fudgy and not cakey. These are perfect! Definitely my new go-to recipe.
