I know I said I’d stop being whiny all the time but I’m bringing bad news here: my computer broke down yesterday and I’m now forced to use my mum’s. Which translates as “I’ll have to take a time off the blog (well kind of. I’ll be here, it’s just that I won’t post as often because I’d miss you guys too much – you’re my fave you know) because it’s so difficult to work without a computer of your own. Photoshop isn’t installed on mum’s, hence the crappiness of these pics (I KNOW I KNOW it pains my heart to post them, but the oreos are so good that I didn’t want you to miss them), and it’s not as if I can borrow this computer as often as I feel like”.
That being said, you won’t see me around often.
(((Shhh I know you’re all sobbing like babies right now 😉 Have a couple of cookies and a tall glass of cold milk and everything’s fixed)))
Sorry I won’t be leaving comments as often as usual.
Sorry it takes me years to reply to all your emails.
Sorry for the bad quality of my pictures lately.
I’m really sad to let all of this go, but school life is calling my name and the blog takes too much of my time. Believe me when I say that I literally cry thinking of all the effort that I’ve put into the blog just to let it go like this… I’m not leaving, but it’s being to hard to give in and accept the fact that I can’t publish three posts per week or being on the media 24/7.
So so sorry that I’m being this whiny tonight. Rant is over now and I’d like to thank you all for all your support and I hope you understand.
Back to the bright side:
Healthy oreos. Which happen to be gluten free as well and rather high in protein so you can have as many as your little heart desires and feel pretty good about it.
They’re health food – remember?
I must say though that they don’t taste 100% like the real thing. Not even one of the ingredients in an oreo cookie is natural, and my kitchen is not a chemistry laboratory, so there’s nothing I can do to make them taste as the real deal *wink wink*
But oh boy, do they taste awesome! Despite the scary ingredient list, I am a fan of oreos (holla #1 favorite unhealthy treat!), and I can assure you that I liked this version as much as the storebought stuff.
So guys, bake yourself a batch to make up for the fact that your favorite three-year-old blogger won’t post as often as usual 😉 They should make you happier! And stay tuned because I had real big plans for these beauties and you won’t want to miss my next post!
- 3/4 cup brown rice flour
- 3 tbsp. cocoa powder
- 2 tbsp. carob powder
- 1/4 cup raw sugar
- 1/2 tsp. baking soda
- 2 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 5 tbsp. milk
- 1 + 1/2 tbsp. raw honey
- 250 grams fat free cottage cheese
- 1 tbsp. coconut oil
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1 tbsp. raw sugar
- optional stevia to taste
- Mix all of the dry ingredients in a bowl.
- Stir in wet-ones and mix dough with a wooden spoon until you can form a ball.
- Chill ball in the fridge for 30 minutes.
- Roll out dough on a heavily floured surface and use a cookie cutter to cut circles. You should get 30-32 depending on the size.
- Bake at 200ºC (400F) for 10-12 minutes or until your kitchen starts smelling of cookies. Don't overbake them because you won't see if they're burnt because they're black!
- For the filling, add all of the ingredients to a food processor and pulse until smooth.
- Wait for cookies to cool before you stuff them!
- This recipe makes enough filling for two batches, ut if you halve it, you might have problems with your food proccesor. Anyway, you can eat the leftover filling with a spoon 😉
- If you want the filling to be white, use clear vanilla extract.
Once again – thanks for all your support and good wishes! Exams are going fine, I’m doing well and I’m super looking forward to be done with it all and be back to blogging life and stuff.
Sorry for the pessimistic vibes today – I’ll make it up to you soon!
