Things That Make You Go Mmmm!

Cravings struck me the other day … first for Mmmm Sauce, and then for something sweet with chocolate. I’ll get to the dessert in a bit… first, Mmmm.

I love Mmmm Sauce. Love. I wanted to lick the food processor blade when I was cleaning up, but I refrained. My tongue thanked me.

As someone who is definitely NOT a vegan, nor aspiring to be one – I find my love for Mama Pea’s reciPEAS a little surprising. I think that is just a testament to how fantastic she is in coming up with delicious food – vegan or not.

As for the chocolate fix… I decided that I wanted to try to make a microwave cookie-type thing. I searched around a bit, and went with the guidelines for a 3 minute cookie on CNC – with a few changes. Thus, at 10pm, I found myself whipping up the following…

  • 1/4 c. oats
  • 1 egg white
  • 2 tsp. organic cane sugar
  • 2 tsp. spelt flour
  • 1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 (heaping) TBSP chocolate chips (60% cacao)

and cooked it on high, in a lightly sprayed crock for about 65 seconds. I started out with 45, and it didn’t appear done (and smelled like eggs!!), I cooked it for another 10 secs, took a peek, and then cooked it for another 10 secs. That seemed to do the trick.

I was able to lift it right out and onto a plate, with no problems with it sticking.

I think I will have to experiment with it a few more times, before I can decide if it’s something I like or not. Next time I plan to forgo the egg white all together, and add mashed banana instead, also subbing honey for the sugar, with a bit more flour, too, I think. It was okay, but just a starting point. I definitely didn’t love it.

But the Mmmm Sauce? Yeah, I finished that in 2 meals and a snack. All by myself. Yep. And I’m not sorry.
