Choffy Lace Cookies

This cookies were inspired by my friend from New Zealand. She told me she was missing Anzac Biscuits from home. So I research them, found Golden Syrup at a Polynesian Market and made them for her. They were delicious, but I wanted to make them my own. I played around with a few failed attempts, but this are a family favorite.

Ingredients

1 ½ cup unsweetened shredded coconut
1 cup oat flour (wheat or white flour works as well)
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup rolled oats
¾ cup Choffy Grinds (post brew)
½ cup butter
¼ cup brewed Choffy
¼ Corn Syrup
1 tsp baking soda
More Choffy if needed
1 cup White Chocolate Chips

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper (these biscuits can be quite sticky, so I really recommend the parchment paper if you have it).

Add the coconut, flour, brown sugar, rolled oats, and Choffy grinds to the large mixing bowl and stir to combine.

In a small saucepan, melt the butter, brewed Choffy, and corn syrup together, boiling. Remove from heat. Add the soda into the melted butter mixture. (the soda will cause the mixture to bubble and expand).

Pour the melted butter mixture into the dry ingredients and stir till well combined. If the mixture seems to dry, add a little more brewed Choffy (I added about a tablespoon).

Drop the dough in heaping teaspoonful onto the lined baking sheet, leaving plenty of room for spreading (they will spread quite a bit).

Bake the biscuits in preheated oven for 10-15 minutes or until golden. Cook them closure to 10 minutes if you want them chewier then brittle.

Allow the biscuits to cool on the tray for a few minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Melt white chocolate chips in the Microwave on half power for 2 ½ to 3 ½ minutes. Drizzle melted white chocolate over the cooled cookies.

Choffy Protein Balls

We are athletic at our house and have experimented with different protein drinks, bars, and balls for both energy and recovery. These protein balls are my daughters favorite after a hockey game. My daughters favorite or almond, my sons are peanut butter, and mine are combination of almond and peanut butter or cashew. I enjoy them before and after workouts.

Choffy is brewed cocoa which promotes Lean Muscle Mass Growth. How? There is a compound in the cocoa bean called Epicatechin and when ingested help to increase follistatin levels in your body.  What does that mean?  It means that with higher follistatin levels your body can produce muscle.  Muscle burns calories, which in turn helps you to maintain body balance.

Ingredients:

1 cup Brewed Choffy Grinds
3 cups Oats
1/4 cup Whey Protein or Protein Powder
1 1/2 cups Natural Nut Butter (Almond, Peanut Butter, or Cashew)
3/4 cup Honey
1/2 cup Brewed Choffy

Directions:

Combined oats, Choffy grinds, and protein powder in a mixing bowl.  Stir in nut butter. In a medium sauce pan cook Choffy and honey over medium heat until boiling. Pour hot ingredients over other ingredients and mix well. Use a cookie scoop to make uniform size ball. Scope out onto a cookie sheet. Form into balls and refrigerate for 1 hour to set up. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

Choffy – 100% Natural BREWED CHOCOLATE drink!

In 2011 a friend introduced me to the most divine drink Choffy. I fell in love with it and so did my family. We drink it both hot and cold. Our current favorite is brewing equal parts El Sonado Dark and IC Dark. We prefer brewing it in a french press, but you can also get it in K-cups. I love that there is nothing but 100% roasted cocoa beans in it. Each person can chose how they drink it; black, with a little honey, with cream, a pinch of salt, or with coffee creamer. We also love making protein shakes with cold Choffy as our liquid. I have not tried the French roasts yet, but I will be trying them them soon.

At the time they had a direct distribution program and so naturally I became a distributor so I could share it with others.  Since then they sell directly from their website https://www.choffy.com.

Choffy is made with cocoa beans that are roasted, ground and then packaged so that you can brew them just like coffee, but get all the health benefits of dark chocolate. Unlike coffee, Choffy supplies you with long-lasting energy throughout the day without the crash, jitters, or other negative effects of caffeine. Which means you can drink as much as you want, whenever you want.

Another thing I love about Choffy is that the grind are 100% Cocoa and are therefore edible. So  once they have been brewed we use them in recipes. I will be adding the recipes here so you can enjoy them too!

Each cocoa been has been carefully chosen for it’s different regions of the world for it flavor profiles.  Each variety comes in Medium Roast, Dark Roast, or French Roasts.

Ivory Coast is the original and signature Choffy origin.  These single estate cacão beans from the Ivory Coast have a lighter chocolate flavor with hints of natural grains and earthy notes.

Volta comes from premium cacão found in Ghana (West Africa), after years of searching. Volta boasts an exceptionally rich depth, yet smooth cocoa flavor.  You feel the chocolate fill your mouth with every sip.

El Sonado means the dreamed or dreamy.  This Choffy is just that, chocolaty, full flavored all packed together with one of the smoothest aftertastes that we have ever produced.

There are a number of different health benefits from dark chocolate. Here are just a few as listed is directly from the Choffy website.
