Day 60: Another attempt at baking

Today’s baking attempt: breakfast cookies. I followed a recipe, but mine looked nothing like the pictures in it. Mine looked like this:

Looks yummy, huh? Yeah, I didn’t think so either. That being said, they’re not terrible. They taste better than the muffins, but they’re not great. The texture isn’t very cookie like. They’re also not very high in protein. Each cookie is 134 calories and only has 4.5 grams of protein. Granted, that’s more protein than regular cookies, but it’s not what I was hoping for. If all I’m getting is 4.5 grams of protein per cookie, I need the cookie to taste better.

Current step total: 580

Day 59: Baking things

I eventually got over my mood last night and baked my pumpkin chocolate chip muffins. I used this recipe. They looked okay, but I didn’t get a chance to try any because I’d already hit the top of my calorie range for the day. – the taste test had to wait till morning.

And well, it was just ok. Nothing spectacular, but at 116 calories and 7.5 grams of protein each, I can try to eat them as a snack if I’m craving something sweet.

If I were a better baker, I’d try to figure out how I could improve this recipe to better suit my tastes; but I’m not. I can cook, but when it comes to baking, I can barely follow a recipe. That doesn’t mean I don’t try though; I’m going to try to make these protein cookies today. Hopefully they’ll taste better than the muffins.

Current step total: 601
