Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookie MRP (Meal Replacement Powder) - our meal replacement blend provides the foundation for our cookie dough, ensuring a rich peanut butter flavor that we all know and love.
Oats - adds a hearty texture and a boost of fiber to keep your stomachs satisfied.
PB2 - We all love the creaminess of peanut butter, but we're keeping things in check with PB2 – a powdered peanut butter with a fraction of the fat, but all the flavor.
Light Brown Sugar - A touch of sweetness to enhance the cookie dough experience.
Chocolate Chips - Because what's cookie dough without chocolate chips?
A Pinch of Salt - salt helps balance the flavors and elevate the taste.

Next, combine all the remaining ingredients together and let the batter sit in the freezer for about 30 minutes.
