“Gold Chip” Cookie Bars

Fight night was a smorgasbord of vegetarian yumminess. The guys brought the crudites (baby carrots, celery, broccoli, cauliflower), and of course, a large selection of beers, while I provided the hummus, salsa, freshly baked corn chips, and chocolate tofu cream pie.

Everything was a hit and we were all snacking throughout the night. The hummus’ garlicky lemon flavors and the smokiness of the salsa were much appreciated, and we had fun trying different spices for each new baking sheet of corn tortilla chips. The Jamaican Jerk Blend provided a few laughs as accidental inhalations of the spices set off coughing fits. :)

This time, I didn’t let on to the secret ingredient of the chocolate cream pie until after everyone had scoffed down their pieces. When I told them they had just consumed tofu with no-dairy involved, they were shocked that it tasted so good and rich. My friend Scott immediately pounced on seconds.

Another dessert went well with non-vegetarians at work last week. I brought in a plate of “Gold Chip” Cookie Bars made by tweaking the recipe from The Healthiest Diet in the World by The GoldBecks. It is basically just oatmeal, pumpkin puree, hazelnuts, and chocolate chips. I set them out with a note that they were semi-healthy and may not suite everyone’s tastes. CYA, right? Well, they were gone in a matter of minutes and I received several emails of praise and thanks!

    I should point out one of the "tweaks" I made to the Gold Chip Cookies from the Goldbeck book is to use pumpkin puree instead of the called for applesauce.

    Hey Erin,

    I live in MA, but travel around NE for work. I was in North Conway for training over a two week period. The
    Mexican place was called Cafe Noche.
