1/2 cup rice cereal
1/4-1/2 teaspoon sea salt, season to taste
1/2 cup nut butter (almond or peanut)

1 teaspoon vanilla
3 Tablespoon dark chocolate chips
1/2 Tablespoon coconut oil

Mix oat flour, protein powder, salt and rice crispies in large bowl.
Add nut butter, syrup/milk, vanilla. Stir to combine. It should be cookie dough consistency. Add splash of milk as needed.
