  • 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

    Mary Blue on

  • Here’s what they came out like.

    InternationalMike on

  • 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!

  • It shouldn’t be substituted completely but you can substitute part of the oats with protein powder. Happy blending!

    Blendtec on

  • How’d they come out?

    Tasty?

    InternationalMike on

  • I had a similar experience. Too much dry for the Blendtec even when scraping the sides as suggested. I rolled them into little balls after handmixing them and tucked them in the freezer. We’ll see how they come out!

    Britt on

  • Great Stuff!

    InternationalMike on

  • Yes. Better in smaller portions because they’re so rich. Kid approved too!

  • I just made these and they taste pretty decent. I’d say a little bit better than an over sweetened energy bar. This would be a go-to snack for someone watching their diet. The texture worked out well for me but I have a twister jar. I think I might of over blended because mine don’t look nothing like the picture. I didn’t have flax seed so I used pecans instead. The only thing I measured was the oatmeal. Everything else, I eyeballed. When I make these again I will probably use white chocolate chips instead of the semi-sweet that I had on hand. Sorry if this is hard to read and I hope you get the gist. Also, I used a melon baller to shape the dough which yielded about 16 balls.

  • Can protein powder be substituted for the oats?

    Truda on

  • I think I’d only pulse the oats and flax seed until they were somewhat incorporated. Then I’d put the dry mixture into another bowl, add the rest of the ingredients and mix with my hands. There is very little "wet" in this recipe to mix in a blender – no matter how powerful. And I don’t think a food processor could even handle it. Possibly adding some dates or more liquid sweetener but then you’ve got more sugar and carbs! Some things are just easier and more logical to do by hand.
