Quick, Easy and Gluten-Free…

This is one of those ‘I found it on Pinterest’ recipes that actually turned out the way it said it would.  It’s also one of those recipes that didn’t require I look up what an ingredient is, and I like that in a recipe. 

Side note: I do not make recipes that require that I figure out what an ingredient is.

What I love most about this recipe is that I usually have everything I need to make it just sitting in my kitchen:



{Important to note: While Quaker Oats seem to do fine for me, if you want truly gluten-free, try Bob’s Red Mill. They have awesome gluten-free stuff.}


Although the websites that I found this recipe on call them Skinny Chunky Monkey Cookies and Skinny Monkey Cookies, I call them Chocolate Blobs. I don’t even use chocolate, but that’s what they look like, so that’s what I’m sticking with.  Let’s get to the recipe, shall we?

{EDITED: apparently mocha powder contains cocoa power, so Chocolate Blobs is pretty much right on the money. THE POWER OF THE GOOGLE, PEOPLE!}




Now, here’s the thing to note: I love the ‘batter’ of this stuff. There have been several occasions where I really only made maybe eight little blobs, because that’s all that was left once I had finished munching on the raw batter.  I REGRET NOTHING.


Precooked Blobs


Also, I was making tiny little bite-size blobs initially, but because they were so small I would end up eating ten of them.  So, now I use a small ice cream scoop to measure them out and am good with eating just one as a snack. See how I fixed that?


Finished Blobs


A few more things to note:  These are really good straight out of the oven.  After that, they should be refrigerated or frozen as they’re not terribly sweet.  That’s not a bad thing necessarily, but seeing as I like things that are very sweet, I keep them frozen.  Also, it makes them look a little bit like a meatball and when I don’t want to share it’s possible that I have told the kids that it was, in fact, a meatball.

That’s all there is to it. Quick to throw together and tasty to munch on. Enjoy!
