Tested

I made these cookies at my friend’s house on Friday. I must say, impatience lead them to be slightly lackluster (also a lack of all the correct ingredients). Instead of maple syrup or maple sugar, we had white sugar and agave nectar. Instead of chocolate chip pieces, we had Cadbury Mini-Eggs (discounted Easter leftovers).
We still made them into the most fattie ice-cream sundaes ever (birthday cake flavored ice cream from Target, cookies crumbled on top, with Reese’s flavored magic shell) and probably was the best dessert I’ve ever had.

I still can’t believe it used an entire jar of almond butter though. Oh the humanity.

Peanut butter cookies have always been a favorite of mine, something about them will always remind me of my childhood as they’re one of the first treats I can remember making with my mom as a young girl. This cookie uses almond butter as its base, but has the same nutty, chewy, not too sweet characteristics of my old favorite and best of all, it’s gluten-free. Dark chocolate chips give it a decadent and sophisticated flavor that begs to be paired with tea or coffee (or my favorite, a glass of ice-cold milk). Recipe after the jump. xoxo!

Fit Dessert

I’ve got class in a few minutes, but I had to take time to share with you possibly the greatest (if not deadliest) fitness recipe ever.

Whey cake.

That’s right: cake made from whey protein powder. It gets better because it only requires one ingredient (an egg white), a microwave, and a glass.

If you have the time, do this. Do this right now. I made it with H and we first thought we were scammed because it kept on not turning out–because we were overcomplicating it.

Whey Cake

 

Ingredients

 

  • Scoop of whey protein powder
  • An egg white

Directions

 

  1. Add a scoop of whey into a tall microwavable glass.
  2. Put an eggwhite in the glass.
  3. Stir till well combined
  4. Microwave for one minute

 

We tried ours with our 10 lbs of protein powder. The stuff tastes amazing anyway, but eating it like this made it feel like a chocolate brownie.

Now its more like a brownie
