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.
