Homemade Protein Bar - Cookies N Cream

I totally made this crap up. I haven't tasted it yet but I wanted to get it up somewhere before I forgot what I did.

Mix well:

15 oz ricotta cheese (I used the light stuff)
4 oz cream cheese (again, I used the lower fat stuff)
3 scoops Cookies N Cream protein powder (or any flavor you want)

Stir in 2 cups rolled oats.

Spread on a wax paper covered cookie sheet and put in freezer until semi-firm. Cut into 16 bars and put back in the freezer until completely firm. You can wrap each bar individually, or keep them together, in an air tight container in the freezer. Take one out to thaw before eating.

Did you try these? How did they turn out? I have some C&C Protein powder that I HATE drinking... might give your recipe a whirl if they're yummy. :)

They taste okay, but I should have run the ricotta through the food processor because they are a little gritty.

Great, thanks for the good idea. Now to find light ricotta...
