cookies rather than WIWW

no, you won’t get any WIWW pics today..

why?

 

truth be told, i’ve been sick for a couple of days now..a bad, annoying flu in the middle of my finals..yay.

i look like a mess right now and don’t really care bout my clothes..but I do care about what’s in my tummy!

 

so, instead of getting pics of me, i give you pics of these:

good compensation?:)

to brighten up this  horrible time right now, i decided to create the ultimative get-well-soon cookie! it includes chocolate, nutbutter and  chickpeas..definitely a winner!

based on CCK’s choc.chip blondies, i gave it a try to make up a cookie recipe.

oh my gosh, it turned out just perfect!

due to me being not in the right condition to going out and shop plus not having much at hand right now, this recipe is really easy and does not call for any “special” ingredients at all.

(let’s simply ignore the fact of me having no chocolate at home..my daddy had to bring his little, oh-so-adult girly girl some chocolate! love you, daddy <3)

 

anyways, try it and be amazed!

 

 

PROTEIN CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES

yields about 12 cookies, but i would highly recommend to double the recipe! 

 

– 2 c. chickpeas (cooked, rinsed and drained)

– 1 c. riceflour (i used white)

-3/4 -1 c. spelt flour

-1 T nutbutter (peanut-, almond-,…)

-1T oil

-1 T baking powder

-1 T baking soda (natron)

cinnamon

sweetener (depending on your sweet tooth)

– 1 t salt

– some mylk (about 1/4 to 1/3 c.)

choc. chips

*note: this recipe is very flexible. you can easily switch

proportions of the flour and for example just use spelt-flour. more,

you can use either 2 T nutbutter or 2 T oil,

depending on what you have at hand.

maybe you could even sub water for the mylk,

but i haven’t tried myself.

directions:

mash the chickpeas & slowly add all the ingredients except for the chocolate chips. mix everything very well.

then, add your chips and put the cookiedough on a baking sheet, depending on how big you want your cookies. you can even make cookie-balls!

turn on heat to about 200°C and bake for 10 to 15 minutes.

let cool and indulge! 🙂

honestly, i believe these are the best cookies i ever made had.

i promised i’d save some for my family..this is gonna be hard!

35 degrees and my stove gets hotter..

hey everyone out there!

no, i’ve not been killed by some aliens, i just had tons of things to do.

but things DID include some baking! 🙂

it’s getting hotter every day here in Austria, and some of my friends really thought i’d gone crazy, for i still wanted to make some yummy treats..but hey- that’s me, right?

luckily i kinda “found” another person who is just as crazy for the hot, hot stove as I am – who wound have thought that was possible? – it’s my friend Sophie! 🙂

so the two of us met last week and we made three yummy, vegan snacks. by the way, Sophie just switched to vegetarian and was happy to try some vegan  dessert-recipes with me!

we started with the “genious blondies” by Katie(chocolatecoveredkatie.com). in the end Sophie thought that they tasted too much like chickpeas, which is the main ingredient, but i have to admit that i TOTALLY love them!! 🙂

the second thing we tried was a cookie recipe i found,.

I call them

“BEANIE WEANIES”

– 2,5 c. ground oats

-1 t baking powder

-1/2 t baking soda (natron)

-3 T cinnamon

-dash of salt

-1 c. canned white beans(mashed in a food processor)

– 1/3 c. applesauce

-1/2 – 1 c. maple syrup/sugar

*chocolate chips/ berries


–> Sophie and me just added fresh berries and choc.-chips to the cookie dough when portioned on the baking sheet. i think we doubled the recipe and made a bunch of small cookies and a huge one- “MAMA COOKIE“! 😉

these cookies are super healthy: they give you protein(thanks to the beans), vitamins and minerals plus they don’t include any fat!

oh, and they’re cruelty-free! 

the third treat we tried were gluten free banana-muffins.

the recipe includes rice-flour, but i won’t post the recipe for most of the taste-testers thought they were too “banany” and tasted kinda” bready”.

if someone still wants the recipe, leave a comment!

yes, we filled them with berries too! 🙂

well, my dear readers, today my family is coming hme from a short lake-trip, and i decided to surprise them with

a very fruity cake!

here’s the recipe:

-2 c. flour

-1 c. oats

-1 t baking powder

-dash of salt

-1 c. applesauce

-2 T cinnamon

-1 T carob-powder

-5 T maple syrup

-4 t cornstarch

–> mix all the above-listed ingredients to make the dough. then cut about 4 cups of fresh fruit(i chose peaches, apricots and berries) into small bites and mix them in a seperate bowl.

oil a cakepan and put in the dough. then add the fruit on top of the dough and drizzle some maplesyrup on the fruit.

bake the whole thing for about 35 min. at 270 degrees(celsius). let it cool and then cut into pieces.

it’s delicious!!:)

over and out! 🙂
