It’s no secret that my sister  is one of my biggest taste testers for some of my blog recipes. I say some because more often than not, she would turn her nose at something based purely on it’s ingredient list- Not the finished product. 

Mention to her there’s hidden cauliflower in these pancakes? She won’t eat it.

Tell her this flatbread has no yeast or wheat flour in it? She won’t eat it.

Tell her this McMuffin is in fact, not from McDonalds? She’ll complain and critique it

If there’s one ingredient or recipe I know she will always be game to try, it is something which contains chocolate in it.

Long time readers may remember when I shared the recipe for Copycat Bounty Bars. These are her favourite chocolate bar and I recreated them for her birthday. While she was (somewhat) appreciative, she still HAD to critique me. 

“These aren’t shaped like bounty bars”. 

…..Plausible critique. 

When I made these Copycat Subway White Chocolate Macadamia Nut cookies, she ate half the batch within the first three days, forgot about them, then polished the rest off a week later. Her critique?

“The second time I ate them they weren’t as chewy.”

…..Plausible critique. 

More recently, I made her the single serve ‘Nutella’ breakfast cookie dough because she would skip breakfast and needed something quick, fast and delicious to bring with her to university. While she really did enjoy these, she had to critique me yet again. 

“I put them in my handbag and my purse squashed one. It looked squished.” 

….Plausible critique.

In case you couldn’t tell, I was being sarcastic. Her ‘critiques’ had nothing to do with the recipe itself. I think it comes down to the unspoken sibling rivalry, in which she ensures that I never receive a wholehearted compliment…or that she doesn’t want my head elevated. 

Niki was the first person I shared these Healthy No Bake Triple chocolate cookies with because I needed yo pick something up from home and also it had chocolate in it…Three times the chocolate. 

These healthy no bake triple chocolate protein cookies are based off my white chocolate and raspberry version posted several weeks back. Several readers on Facebook told me they’d love to see a chocolate version because they found white chocolate too sweet. This recipe is simple to whip up and the most time spent is attempting to wait for them to firm up slightly- 20 minutes. They are vegan, gluten free and can be made completely sugar free too! The protein powder is optional but I find using it really helps keep them together and enhance the chocolate taste- If you use a chocolate flavoured one!

One bowl. 20 minutes. A (minor) arm workout = Healthy No Bake Triple Chocolate Protein Cookies. Three times the chocolate, three times the deliciousness and three times less complaining. 

Or so I thought. 

“One of the chocolate chips must have been bad in the second one I ate”

….Who wants to be my new taste tester?

Ingredients
  1. 2 cups gluten free oat flour (GF oats ground to a flour)
  2. 1/2 cup gluten free oat bran (can sub for extra 1/2 cup oat flour)
  3. 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  4. 2 standard scoop of chocolate protein powder (can sub for an extra 1/2 cup oat flour)
  5. 2 T granulated sweetener of choice
  6. 1/4 tsp sea salt
  7. 1/2 cup + 2 T nut butter of choice (I used homemade hazelnut butter)
  8. 3/4 cup brown rice syrup (can sub for honey if not strictly vegan)
  9. 1/4-1/2 cup unsweetened dairy free milk*
  10. Unsweetened chocolate chips/chunks (I used sugar free chips)
Instructions
  1. Line a large baking tray with baking paper and set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the oat flour, oat bran, cocoa powder, chocolate protein powder, sweetener of choice and sea salt and mix well.
  3. In a microwave safe bowl, add the nut butter of choice and brown rice syrup and heat until melted and mix to incorporate.
  4. Add the liquid mixture to the dry mixture and stir until fully combined- Mixture should be crumbly. Slowly add dairy free milk, one tablespoon at a time, until a very thick dough is formed. Let sit for 4-5 minutes to ensure mixture has cooled. Stir through the chocolate chips until fully incorporated.
  5. Using your hands, form small balls and press down to a cookie shape on the baking tray. Using a fork, press down on it twice and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before consuming.
Notes
  1. Depending on the protein powder and/or if you use all oat flour, you need to adjust your liquid mixture.
  2. These can be stored at room temperature. If refrigerated, thaw very slightly.
  3. The granulated sweetener of choice is optional- For a sweetener cookie, add 1-2 tablespoons. I prefer a more 'bland' cookie dough to bring out the flavours cocoa and chocolate chips.

Hope you all have an amazing weekend and eat something delicious. (That should be standard practice).

Are you one to compliment or critique your family members?

Is there such thing as chocolate chips going bad? No. Anyone who has chocolate remaining is doing something wrong.

What is the most ridiculous critique you’ve ever received? The bowl had a slight tint in it.

  1. I am the same way with my brother who is 2 years my senior..and he with me! What can is say? Males are generally blessed with an abundant ego..I simply cannot risk blowing his up to epic proportions. He’ll turn into a monster! Now about these drool-worthy cookies..I may just promise to shower the bro with compliments if he would happen to present these to me. Or alternatively I could sign up as your taste tester :p .

  2. I will be your taste tester – these look great! What protein powder do you use? And congrats on the Natvia publishing – just saw your delicious Bounty Bar recipe in their newsletter! 🙂

  3. she sounds like me, to an extent–I’m the ‘correct” police. mostly to do with how things are worded. I love words so that i part of it. Wordsmithing is one of my favorite things.

  4. *raises hand to be new taste tester* (Wait, it this a paid position? Because that would be even cooler!) Your sister and my sister sound like they have a lot in common…there must be a class that all little sisters attend. It’s called “Being a Brat 101” and that is followed with “How to Cry on Command (to get big brother in trouble)”. Of course, the capstone class is “How to Be Awesome (once you’re older)”. Haha! Oh, and I dropped one of these cookies on the ground before I hate it. It tasted like dog hair. Plausible critique?

    1. Mate, before I forget- My favourite way to eat vegemite is with cheese. Grilled. no joke. That is what I shall be paying you with to be my taste tester.

      I think our sisters took the same damn class.

  5. Hahaha at least Niki is honest and gives good feedback! She’s making you a better chef 😉 I’ve been in the mood for nothing but chocolate lately so these look like a great recipe that I won’t feel AS guilty about (I ate an entire medium-sized bag of M&Ms in three days over here….it was NOT GOOD.)

  6. I’m beginning to notice a trend for myself. I seem to not be offering relevant comments to your posts. Like this one, I mean yes ALL the chocolate plus some protein looks bomb, but… I’m more curious as to how I missed those white chocolate raspberry cookies! WTF? Dude. You’re doing it right. I volunteer to be your tester in America.

  7. hmmm. Although my brother did spend a year in a chef training program, most of the things I’ve seen him cook involve Kraft Dinner or Hamburger Helper so im gonna go with critiquing. Although when he does actually cook….he makes the best tiramisu ever that I could never find anything wrong with it.

    Come to Canada and I’ll be your taste tester!

  8. The person that is always criticizing my culinary experiments is my husband, but he ends eating everything. Love these cookies, simple, healthy and I bet delicious too.

  9. One time I got a customer who brought her bagel back three times (a new bagel each time mind you) because she first didn’t want it toasted, and then she did, and then it was not toasted enough…I was like…hmm please leave the store and go get a donut. I think family is just really hard to please because they know you the best. Unless it has cheese melted on top, my dad thinks anything can be improved (this is a lie. Chocolate and cheese is GROSS). Oh well. They will learn some day 🙂

  10. Hahah your sis is hilarious! She reminds me of my grandmother- she has this mental block against anything remotely healthy so I sometimes need to lie and tell her that my baked goods contain mucho sugar and butter to get her to try it…what fun it is to tell her later that only minimal amounts (sometimes none) are present!! I know you’re all set to move to the US of A but come to Mumbai- I promise to be your taste tester, especially if cookie are still on your agenda….and of course those egg white Mars bars ;)!

  11. Haha you and your sister are hilarious. I get similar critiques from JZ when I try to feed him something healthy. “There’s green in this”. “This tastes healthy”. “Where’s the meat?” Hahaha.

    I want to try these with vanilla protein powder. I got a huge tub for free a few months ago and I haven’t even touched it yet. These look like a good use for it though!

  12. I’m always looking for ways to bake (no-bake? cook? make food-things with?) protein powder, and this is it! And I will most certainly be using dark chocolate chunks. OH YES. It reminds me of my past love of chunky Chips Ahoy! cookies.
    And I am totally the criticizer of the family. They all actually get super offended, but hey- I’m just trying to help!

  13. First let me start by saying that I am not a “healthy” foodie. I’m not vegan or Paleo and only mildly GF (since my 8yo daughter has behavioral issues related to gluten). And generally speaking MOST of your recipes scare me (LOL, sorry). I’m very much like your sister. I like sugar. I like fast food. I like packaged convenience food. And if it were up to me I would live on Coke Slurpees and Whoppers. Sigh. But alas, I am trying to loose a significant amount of weight and I keep coming back to your site because frankly you are pinned on Pinterest more than anyone else and you recreate a lot of “junk food”, so that calls to me. I’ve made a few of your other things. Some I liked, others I’ll admit would take some getting used to. However – I almost passed out eating this! I screwed them up, and they were not cookies in the slightest. Look, I was tired and grouchy and just wanted these as fast as possible and for some reason I dumped all of the crap into a food processor and didn’t follow any of your directions. I’m not sure where my brain was. In the end the consistency was like a thick brownie batter and OH MY GAWHD!!! I used oat flour, vanilla flavored agave, white sugar, 2% milk, Maranantha Caramel Almond Butter and vanilla protein powder (because I had these things and wanted this NOW!). This has to be one of my all time favorite things now. I divided it up to serve 12 and the calories are still about 265, for not very much. But it was worth it!! And I was surprisingly full. After I chilled them (meaning I came back for round two at lunch time) they did have a more solid consistency, but by then it was in a metal dressing cup so maybe at that point it would’ve held the shape of a cookie. Frankly, I felt like it was irrelevant. Anyhow, I think you should add a bit more milk (so its more batter-like) and rebrand these as an additional recipe – brownie batter breakfast – for those of us junk food junkies who have eaten brownie batter as a meal. Don’t judge. I also shared these with a brownie batter loving friend, she LOVED it too and thought it was brownie batter. So, thank you for this ingenious recipe. I’ll try to be more open minded about your other recipes in the future! 😉
