Now this is a fun recipe but you know if cookies were your pre weight loss surgery demon (a food trigger or something you didn't have control over) you might want to take a pass on this one. I eat a hunk of a protein bar when I want a little something sweet, so this works for me and it's a great way to breathe life back into a Quest Bar that has been hanging around the house too long. I often have a partial bar that once opened becomes sort of rock-like... this a great way to save it from the trash bin.

If you hang at a coffee shop with a pal and chit chat and the bakery case calls to you this is a great alternative to have in your pocketbook. After they cool drop a couple in a snack size baggie and you'll always have a little something sweet in your bag of tricks.

Here's an online source (all the flavors) for the bars if you can't find them in your 'hood. Any flavor will work so far my favorites have been Cookies & Cream, S'mores, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, Vanilla Almond.
