kitchen win and kitchen fail

Last night I made my best batch of workout cookies yet!  I changed up the recipe a little bit to this:

  • 1/4 c. whole wheat flour
  • 1 c. oats
  • 1/2 c. rice krispies
  • 2 T. (or so) chia seeds
  • 1/4 c. ground flax
  • 1/4 c. (scant) brown sugar
  • 1/2 c. plain yogurt
  • 1/4 c. applesauce
  • cinnamon
  • 1/4 c. choc. chips

By the way, I don’t put these in a muffin tin – I just spread them in a square pan.  These came out great – a little fluffier and a little thicker.  Dave and I both noticed a difference!  We’ll have to see if I can repeat it again.

Then I decided to try Fruit, Seed, and Nut Power bars… with a big FAIL.  I used almonds, dates, peanuts, raisins, sunflower seeds.  I didn’t have any orange juice, but we had this in the fridge:

The end result:

The taste was fine… nothing fantastic, nothing gross.  But they fell apart as soon as I started cutting them, despite being chilled.  That was majorly disappointing!  I’m not sure what went wrong?  I guess we’ll just crumble it and eat it over yogurt?

Have you had any big kitchen wins or kitchen fails lately?
