It's Sunday night so why not make some cookies?! I decided to try a few new recipes I found online. First, I baked some chocolate chip oat protein nuggets and then I rolled up some raw vegan chocolate chip cookie dough balls. I almost forgot the peanut butter for the nuggets, I had them on the cookie sheet ready to go in the oven when I remembered! I added protein powder to the dough balls and used actual chocolate chips. I'm not vegan, so I used what I had. The dough balls didn't stay together too easily either, maybe because of the protein powder, but I doubt it. Both are pretty good, different than what I'm used to, but will definitely hit the spot when I'm looking for a sweet treat!
Yesterday, I met up with an old friend who was doing me a favor. As a thank you, I brought her coffee and baked a cake. I had seen this chocolate peanut butter fun cake in my latest Bon Appetit magazine and really wanted to make it! I didn't realize it at first, but the cake itself was vegan. The peanut butter icing was not, however. Either way, it was delicious! I think my friend would agree.
I guess it was a pretty good weekend for baking! I didn't even have any plans to bake when I left work Friday. Funny how what you set out to do and what you actually do are usually so far from each other!
