Chocolate Chip and Pecan Cookies!

Last week I received a bundle of chocolate goodies from Green and Blacks

So I decided to bake something with the Milk Cooks’ Chocolate.

Chocolate Chip and Pecan Cookies

adapted from The Gracious Pantry
  • 1/3 cup of cooked oats
  • 3 tbsp of honey
  • 1 tsp of vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp of cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup of whole wheat spelt flour
  • 1/2 cup of milk chocolate chips
  • 1/4 of chopped pecan nuts


Mix all of the ingredients together in a blender except the chocolate chips and pecan nuts in a food processor.  Stir in the chocolate and pecans and spoon on to a non-stick baking tray.  Bake for 20 minutes at gas mark 5.

These cookies would be great with some protein powder in them too.  I really want to buy some protein powder, but I’m a little worried about the effects.  I don’t want to look like this…

I’m really unsure about which ones to buy and need to do some research.  I know that I want something natural and that contains very few ingredients…but which one????  I will make sure that I keep you posted about the choices I make and why.

Do you use protein powders?  Have you noticed any changes in your body whilst using them?
