A Busy Day(mookies)

by Meg on March 22, 2011

Today FLEW by- especially the morning- I went  from Interval Challenge, to training clients, to school, to Trader Joe’s, to KALE SOUP! Phew! The soup was a perfect way to end a crazy morning!

I then got in the car and went over to cook with some lovely little ladies. I asked them to be  ‘kid testers’ for mookies! They loved them! So what is a mookie?

Mookies = my new non-cookie treat

I love these little  mounds! They have been kid tested and friend approved- so enjoy! Smile 

Ingredients:

  • 1/3 cup of natural creamy peanut butter
  • 3 egg whites
  • 1/4 tsp. of baking powder
  • 5x dates(seeded and chopped up)
  • 1  cup of gf oats
  • 1/3 cup of good dark chocolate OR chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 350F. Place all ingredients in the food processor and pulse until you have a large mound of dough. Either use cooking spray or parchment paper and cover a cooking sheet. Place 1 tbsp. sized balls onto the cooking sheet(makes 15). Bake for 8-10 minutes.

After spending time with the ladies making pizza I came home to these two ‘naughty beasties.’

Luna’s puppy friend -Lenny  had come over for a pup-date. As per usual, Lenny finds EVERY hidden ball in the house and ‘kills’ them while Luna stares him down and waits for him to move on to his next ‘ball victim.’ She is always plum tuckered by the end of the night!

While the pups played, Dave and I put together  a quick dinner of turkey/chickpea/brown rice burgers with kale chips and parsnip fries.

The mookies sound tasty and pretty easy to make.
I’ve yet to try parsnip fries. I love carrot fries, are they similar?

I haven’t made carrots fries- but now I feel like I have to :)
I love parsnip fries- you should try them out! They taste like a cross between a potato and a carrot!

They are actually pretty soft from the peanut butter! :)
