Dedicated to experimenting and experiencing new ways of cooking, eating, working out, and home decor.
Sometimes, the idea to just come up with something off the cuff happens. (It happens to me quite a lot, actually.)
So, I did what any sane person would:
I made something up in the kitchen. (What, you mean you don’t do that?)
I’d been having a hankering for chocolate, and wanted to make those awesome chocolate no-bake cookies that my mom makes only at Christmas.
Here’s what I didn’t have: bakers chocolate, chocolate chips, or her recipe.
But, here’s what I did have: chocolate protein powder, almond milk, oatmeal, and a fairly good idea of how it would be put together (I’ve made peanut butter cookie dough balls this way, what could go wrong?).
Here’s the recipe:
Blend dry ingredients in food processor/ninja, then stir in liquid.
What could go wrong? Ah, well, here’s the kicker: I added too much liquid, too quickly. So even though they took on a ball shape, there was no way I could eat them with my fingers.
Currently, I’m completely out of chocolate protein powder. What I do have, though, is vanilla protein powder, unsweetened cocoa, chocolate chips, and a hankering… to do this again. So expect to see me experiment with it again soon, because it did actually taste pretty good, even if a bit…sticky.
