Months ago we began digging deeper into the production of a SOFLETE cookbook in response to requests from our customers and athletes. As we did so, the amount of information and the quality of information we wanted to include continued to grow past simply creating tasty gains making recipes to including answers to the stream of questions about calories, macros, nutrients, and timing. As we tried to incorporate all of this knowledge, the project scope grew past delivering a static piece of nutritional information.
We've recently brought a full time Registered Dietitian Nutritionist on staff. She will be doing live Facebook Q&A sessions, writing weekly blog posts, and most importantly, writing the meal plan that will soon (6 weeks-ish) be included with every training subscription offered by SOFLETE. This meal plan will give options for goals, like cutting, maintenance, bulking, high performance, etc. It will also tailor portion sizes to you individually.
Each day will include overall caloric intake and macros, as well as breakdowns of each of the aforementioned for individual meals and snacks. All meals and snacks will come with recipes, and while not all will include pictures in the beginning, eventually every recipe will have one. This will be exclusively available through the app, and while it will be a free addition to training programs, it will also be available as a stand alone subscription.
Without further ado - here's the magical recipe for Teddy Bear Night Night Cookie Dough Balls - quite possibly the greatest food on earth.
- 1 can of chickpeas or garbanzo beans
- ¼ cup peanut butter
- ½ cup honey
- 3 scoops of Cinnabun Teddy Bear Night Night
- 3 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- ⅛ teaspoon baking soda
- ½ cup mini chocolate chips
- Can opener
- High powered food processor
- Measuring cups
- Mixing bowl
- Rinse and drain chickpeas in a strainer. Pat dry them dry and place them in the food processor.
- Add peanut butter, honey, pure vanilla extract, salt, baking soda, and just 1 scoop of Teddy Bear Night Night (TBNN) to the food processor. Blend on low or medium speed until smooth. Add one more scoop of TBNN and blend until smooth. Add the last scoop of TBNN and blend until smooth.
- The cookie dough will be a little warm from the food processor, so refrigerate the dough until it’s cool to the touch. (About 20 minutes or more depending on how warm the dough got.)
- After letting the dough chill, scrape it out into a mixing bowl and add the chocolate chips. Gently mix in the chocolate chips, and then you are ready to make the cookie dough balls.
- Roll the cookie dough into 1.5 inch balls. You want 15 balls total, so 5 balls is one serving of TBNN.
- Refrigerate the leftovers. When having the refrigerated TBNN cookie dough balls, let them sit out for a few minutes to thaw into gooey deliciousness.
