If you use agave instead of honey, you may need to increase amount to create the right texture.

To make in WildSide+ or FourSide jar, increase ingredients by 1.5 (see below) and follow instructions above. You may need to stop blending and scrape sides down if cavitation occurs.

3 tbsp ground flax seed

    Yummy! I tripled the recipe and added unsalted peanuts, slivered almonds, coconut flakes and pumpkin seeds instead of the chocolate chips (approximately 1 1/3 cups in total). I will be making these again (and often)!!

    I tried this recipe using my WildSide+. No luck.

    Let me know if anyone has a successful experience that tastes good.

    I used the 1.5 multiple and used 4.5 tbsp of Agave in place of the Honey. Had to add some water to get it to mix.

    Kind of had to take it out of the blender and finish mixing in the chocolate chips by hand because the blendtec was having a really hard time mixing this dense batter.

    I shaped the balls and actually baked a few down into some cookies at 350° for 25 mins.

    Taste is okay I guess.

    Looking forward to hearing some success stories and suggestions.

    Cheers!

    I like that you did cookies. Don’t like that they weren’t delicious


  • InternationalMike

    Here’s what they came out like.

    The cookies actually taste pretty good. They don’t have any added sugar so don’t expect that kind of taste.

    I baked the rest of the cookies at 300° for 60 mins. It’s a long time to bake but it was the only way I could get them to be crunchy and not fall apart.

    Happy Blentec’g.

    Cheers!
