The Cookie Dough Series. Part II.

I was blown away by the positive feedback I received on the cookie dough balls from the last post!! Thanks everyone. (Side note: I was asked if they actually taste like cookie dough. Well, not really if you're expecting them to taste like cookie dough. However, if you keep them in the fridge, they definitely taste more like cookie dough!) As for me, I've almost demolished the batch I made.

Naturally, I've decided that this is my new favorite snack. What is there not to like? Easy to make, delicious, and healthy. The only problem? Cool snacks are found in lots of different flavors.

Naturally, I put my thinking cap (and apron) on.

I want all of you to be able to enjoy these, and obscure ingredients tend to be intimidating. I changed up the ingredients on this version a little bit--but don't worry, it's still 5 ingredients!

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Pop'ums

  • 1 cup crisp rice cereal (I used the brown rice version)
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter (I used SunButter because of allergies)
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons brown rice syrup (or maple syrup/agave/honey)
  • chocolate chips

First add the cereal to the food processor. Pulse a few times, but not too many.

Add the peanut butter. Blend until incorporated.

Apologies for the stubborn vertical picture.
 Add the syrup and vanilla.

Add the chocolate chips. Don't blend too much!

Again, sorry about the weird rotations.
Form into balls or eat as is!

I actually used only 1 tablespoon of syrup and the dough wasn't very it crumbled when I tried to form them into balls. So I definitely recommend using 2 tablespoons.

I stuck them in the freezer and ate them five minutes later. Delish!

Enjoy. :)

In other news, GO CATS! Yesterday I ate dinner at a local sushi place while watching the game. It's definitely possible to eat a normal Tulika-fied meal while out.

Brown rice topped with steamed veggies with little to no oil and very little soy sauce. Perfect!!

Have a great weekend, and stay tuned for the next version of cookie dough!

P.S. I'm trying to think of a fun name for the cookie dough balls. Comment here or on Facebook with your ideas, and the winner will receive a few cookie dough balls of their choice! (US Residents only!)
