This was an accident.
Most of these recipes are, but I really wasn’t expecting much from the mess of ingredients I threw into my trusty old ‘processer, and so I was pleasantly surprised.
Of course it is kind of ugly.
But this is a good little snack to keep on hand in your refrigerator or pack in your purse (like I did) to avoid expensive drive-thru breakfasts.
I don’t measure out the ingredients, so start small and test out the flavors and consistency to match your preferences.
Cottage cheese/Plain yogurt
Hemp Protein Powder (I used Living Harvest)
Stevia (I used NuNaturals)
Blend chickpeas, banana, and cottage cheese in food processor until fairly smooth. Add hemp powder, flaxseed, blueberries, and stevia, and blend until the mixture is a hideous brownish color from the hemp and the berries. Add oats handfuls at a time, until the whole mixture is dry until to roll itself up into a large ball.
Dump the entire ugly mass into a pan (preferably covered in wax paper for easy cleanup and removal), and smoosh it down with a small rolling pin for a while.
When it is completely smooth on top, pull the wax paper up and lift the whole thing out onto a cutting board.
Slice into desired sizes. Wrap. Refrigerate. Keep in your purse for yummy snacking.
