I guess I didn't get enough protein yesterday. Inspired by this recipe, I made vegan (minus the chocolate chips - not gluten free I don't think with oatmeal and ww flour?) chocolate chip cookies.
VEGAN CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES Recipe:
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup ground oatmeal
1/2 cup wheat germ
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 cup coconut oil
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup agave nectar
1/4 cup maple syrup
2 Tbsp ground flax + 1/2 cup water
1/2 c carob chips (or chocolate chips if you aren't worried about the vegan part).
Mix wet with dry - dough is dry
My first dozen could have well been raw chocolate chip cookies. The batter was really super good and they were easy to roll into balls. I felt like it needed more liquid - it easily broke apart but wasn't crumbly at all. For the second dozen, I added one flax egg (1 TBSP ground flax + 1/4 cup water) and they came out much more soft and chewy. These were very lovely!

I liked hearing about the different ice creams most people enjoy. I almost bought the edy's slow churned but I'm nuts about the ingredients!! See below:

My problems are the italicized items - I really try to avoid partially hydrogenated anything and h.f. corn syrup!
