Chocolate Cranberry and Almond Protein Cookies

Chocolate Cranberry and Almond Protein Cookies

My second experimentation of the day was cookies. I found this recipe on the Net last week and decided to give it a try (I tweaked it a little, though…). There were no directions, save for “mix everything together”. Well, after I did that, I was left with some sort of a soupy mixture, and I thought there was no way this would ever turn into a cookie. So I added whole wheat flour. The texture was much better. So I cooked them as directed.

They turned out not too bad, but they are extremely, and I mean EXTREMELY dense. I love dense breads and cookies, but that might be a little too much. So I will be experimenting some more. I am soooo loving this! Hey, who knows, someday, I might have the perfect recipe to share! :o)

Spinach, Cottage Cheese and Walnuts Savory Muffin

Spinach, Cottage Cheese and Walnuts Savory Muffin

Still experimenting with my protein bar replacement; this week-end, I decided to do things a little differently. I started with a savory muffin, for a change. Spinach, cottage cheese and walnuts. I am fairly happy with the results, their taste is really great. However, they still need a little help aesthetic wise.  Not that they look sooooo bad, but still, they don’t rise evenly and it makes them look a bit unappealing. Funny that the breads should rise so perfectly, but the muffins always come out crooked and some leak big time. I’ll try a little more baking powder, maybe.

Zucchini & Beets Mini Breads

The second batch I made was Zucchini / Beets. I am really happy with how they turned out. I should’ve taken a picture of the one I broke open (couldn’t resist any longer, I HAD to eat one!), they look just like Christmas inside. All the red and the green, plus the black from the raisins, it’s a thing of beauty. Hey, maybe next time!
