WIAW #59

Posted Oct 10 2012 6:00am
Happy WIAW!

And be sure to enter my organic cheese giveaway for 8 blocks of organic non-GMO cheese in honor of October as non-GMO month!

Peas and Crayons

So...I've been working on a recipe for you guys.

It's for a green tea  microwave breakfast cake  that is every bit as delicious as it is nutritious and energizing for a busy day of back-to-back Harvard classes.

Because my schedule on Mondays and Wednesdays? 
9am-11am: Lecture #1
11am-12pm: Lecture #212pm-1pm: Lecture #31pm-2pm: Lunch and Homework2pm-3pm: Work 3pm-5pm: Lecture #4
I pack a lot of snacks and am an incessant lecture snacker, but I still need a good meal to start a day like that off on the right foot! 

An early attempt - the consistency is all off!
I've come pretty close with the recipe, but I'm still working on achieving consistency with it, so that it's reliably amazing.

Pretty Close!
I'm trying to provide you guys with a quality recipe here, guys :) But I'll share it as soon as it's ready - it's close!
But this needs to not happen in the microwave...
 In the meantime, here are some baked goods from some guys who already know what they're doing. And they do it well!

Alternative Baking Co.  makes vegan cookies, with no dairy, no eggs, no trans fats, no hydrogenated oils, no cholesterol, no animal ingredients, no artificial ingredients, no refined sugar, but a whole lot of yumminess!

They generously sent me their gluten-free cookies (there are five varieties) to review. 
There's Cinnamon Burst:

It's soft, sweet, and (like all of their cookies) tastes fresh baked! Alternative Baking Co. doesn't use any preservatives, so their cookies are made fresh and shipped out promptly, so you get them still tasting like they came out of the oven that morning.

Oh, and just so you can kind of see what's in them (the basic ingredients are pretty similar), here's the back of the Cinnamon Burst

Um yes - there are chickpeas in these cookies. And they're delicious.

Cinnamon Burst had a really nice cinnamon flavor that made it perfect for fall (wow, it's fall). Speaking of perfect for fall...

Please note that I'm not even crazy for pumpkin . But if you like pumpkin at all (and maybe even if you don't), you'll enjoy this. It tastes like Thanksgiving, like pumpkin pie without the goopiness!

Chocolate Explosion is the All-American soft-baked, thick, chewy, sweet, and delicious chocolate chip cookie. I recommend microwaving it for 30 seconds, so that the chocolate chips get all melty, and serving it with a class of frosty chilled milk. YUMMY.

The lemon dream balances the sweet-tart flavor complexity through-and-through, never veering too much in either direction.

But I saved the best for last.

Fudge Indulgence, be still my chocoholic heart! It's a soft stick-to-your-teeth good cookie that's the love child of a mall cookie and a Ghiradelli brownie. This is 100% pure decadence and it's unbelievable chocolaty and rich.
