you ever just get a hankering for something sweet... but don't want to BLOW your health goals? um. yes. duh. you are human.
well. the other day, while I was whipping up dinner... the Gillies were being a wee bit rambunctious so I asked the hubster to distract them by making dessert. something simple. now... the hubster is a GENIUS when it comes to making cookies... seriously. he makes three types of cookies that will make me gain 20 pounds in 1 month.
no lie. it happened.
he makes a chocolate-chip cookie... a cranberry-walnut cookie.... and the "crack" cookie (which is his version of oatmeal chocolate chip). now. this recipe ISN"T for any of those because... well, they are LOADED with butter, sugar and real flour... so gluten and dairy. we bake them for friends during the holiday season or as a "thank you" but WE try... we try are darnedest not to eat them.
so. when I asked the hubster to make dessert with our twins, the Gillies. his eyes lit up... YES!!! he exclaimed, crack cookies!!! um. no... something healthier, I casually mentioned.
and now... the hubster looks not so much like a genius. but WHAT?!? he asked. while my back was turned and I was throwing stuff into a pot on the stove and slicing veggies for dinner... I rambled a few ingredients and gave instructions here or there. I had NO idea what I was saying... and the hubster's face at the end of it PROVED the dessert MAY go into the trash bin.
but... it didn't... these little buggers were DELICIOUS... simply delicious.
now. before you give me all these props for being a MAKE-A-RECIPE-OUT-OF-THIN-AIR wizard... I read something about these before. not sure these "fat bombs" are made the same... but they were a HIT in our house and the Gillies, the twins LOVED them.
Hope this helps... and hope you LOVE our FAT BOMBS!!!
