AN ENTREPRENEUR who was turned down by multi-millionaires in Dragons’ Den is now selling her range of health biscuits in UK supermarkets.

When Evie Waxman entered the lair of the business tycoons, she divided opinion as she vied for their support and walked away without a £50,000 investment.

But that hasn’t stopped the 27-year-old chef from turning her bright idea of ​​creating raw, vegan cookies into a successful business.

The young entrepreneur developed Raw Bake Station at the age of 21 after visiting Australia and worked tirelessly to get it off the ground.

Two years ago, she turned to the BBC’s Dragon’s Den shows to win financial support from Deborah Meedham, Touker Suleyman, Sara Davies or Peter Jones.

But not all investors thought she had a viable business capable of making money.

Jones was the first to bow out, telling Evie after a brief reflection that he was going to be “rough” and said that despite thinking one of the flavor options was “really nice”, he said he didn’t like any of the others.

He told her, “If the taste of the product just doesn’t have it, I don’t think it has a chance.”

Deborah Meedham said Evie’s range of raw crooks had “a good crunch” and she was interested in the product.

She said: “I totally disagree with Peter, I think they taste absolutely delicious.”

But cookies were a relatively new goal at the time and not far enough along in development to convince her.

Evie walked away with her head held high despite hearing the dreaded “I’m out” five times.

She told The Sun Online: “You’re not going to please everyone and that was my reaction when Peter Jones said absolutely not.

“I wasn’t offended because he’s not a demographic we’re targeting, he’s not the consumer I’m targeting.

“I knew he wouldn’t like a product like ours anyway.”

Despite Jones’ misgivings, Evie’s business is soaring today without the help of the Moguls.

Evie launched her range of biscuits in WHSmith Travel stores nationwide just two months after appearing on the show and she has since outsourced all production to factories in the UK.

She said, “After that episode ended, we left our production unit and started outsourcing all of our production, so we were exporting to Germany and selling to WH Smith.

“But the volumes were too large for us to produce ourselves, so we moved everything to a UK based manufacturing site, and decided to focus on the ‘crookie’ range.”

Raw Bake Station also launched with Co-op starting with just 45 stores then a year later another 495 Co-op stores and in late 2021 in partnership with Ocado.

You’re going to face a lot of rejection in business, but it’s about how you dust yourself off and keep pushing.

Evie WaxmanFounder of Raw Bake Station

This year, Evie’s products are now available in a supermarket in Kuwait and plans to work with other major chains this year.

Raw Bake Station also has ongoing collaborations with a number of other wholesalers.

Its sweets come in a range of flavors such as salted double chocolate, chocolate, and orange and vanilla chocolate chips.

Evie says today, despite being the subject of harsh criticism, overall she found the experience “overwhelmingly positive”.

The business is expected to earn £365,000 and is currently seeking an investment with a pre-money valuation of £600,000.

During the few hours she was in the room, Evie received brand feedback that helped her move forward.

She said “It gave us a platform to get our brand out there, it was totally worth it.”

Evie believes that anyone trying to start a business should never take a turn down if you wholeheartedly believe in your product.

She said, “You’re not going to please everyone.

“If you know your market and your consumers, you should just pursue them and not be afraid of rejection because you’re going to face a lot of rejection in business, but it’s about how you dust yourself off and keep going. to push.”

PORTLAND, OREGON, USA, March 10, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — cookie market Outlook – 2028

A cookie is a small baked flat food prepared as a ready-to-eat product. They are prepared from flour, sugar, oil or fat and other optional ingredients. Cookies have been considered important bakery treats since ancient times. They were introduced by the Persians in 17 AD and the word cookie comes from the Dutch word Keokje which means small cake. The development of new products and advances in technology have led to the commercial production of biscuits, also called biscuits in some countries. Cookies are made in different shapes and sizes with additional ingredients such as resins, oats, chocolate chips, nuts, and other flavorings to enhance palatability. The chocolate chip cookie was invented by Ruth Wakefield in 1938 in America. Cookies are widely consumed snacks in the United States, United Kingdom, Italy and India. They are categorized into bar cookies, drop cookies, filled cookies, mold cookies, no-bake cookies, press cookies, refrigerator cookies, rolled cookies, sandwich cookies, low fat cookies, and others. Biscuits are baked at the household level and on a large scale in bakeries.

Download the sample report (PDF with information, graphs, tables, figures) at: https://www.alliedmarketresearch.com/request-sample/11399

Analysis of the COVID-19 scenario:

The COVID-19 pandemic first caused the temporary shutdown of manufacturing plants and the loss of labor, which reduced the production of biscuits. In some countries, biscuit makers have been exempted from lockdown restrictions, but the difficulty in raw material supply due to less mobility has led to production shortages.
The export and import ban imposed in several countries has led to the disruption of the global cookie market supply chain.
Disruption in the domestic supply chain caused by transportation restrictions and closure of distribution channels has impacted the sales and revenue of the cookie market. Supermarkets and retail stores faced a shortage of the product due to initial panic buying and later due to closure. The demand for biscuits has increased, while the supply has not been able to meet the needs.

They are known by different names in different countries, and many variations of cookies are developed in the baking sectors. Cookie dough includes creaming, liquid incorporation, mixing of dry ingredients and others.

GRAND RAPIDS, Mi. — Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States, killing one in four people each year. The good news is that many of the risk factors are related to lifestyle choices, including diet.
Grace Derocha is a registered dietitian and national spokesperson for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. She shares a few recipes that prove that just because it’s healthy doesn’t mean it tastes bad.

As we celebrate American Heart Month, it’s important to make sure we’re all eating a well-balanced diet, including fish. They are our primary source of omega-3 fatty acids, but it doesn’t always have to be salmon. Halibut also offers all of these same benefits. Add lots of colorful veggies and Asian flavors, wrap it in parchment paper, and you have an easy, healthy weeknight meal.
Of course, no meal is complete without dessert – and no-bake cooking couldn’t be easier. With peanut butter and coconut, you get healthy plant-based fats and fiber.

It turns out that the secret to making perfect chocolate chip cookies has been in front of us since childhood: the Cookie Monster. Who knew, right? these Sesame Street Themed Chocolate Chip Cookies initially went viral on TikTok in 2020, and with the addition of blue food coloring and a parcel of chocolate, they immediately caught my attention.

Even now, over a year later, these Cookie Monster Chocolate Chip Cookies have retained their viral status, and it’s easy to see why. They’re big, beautiful, and bright blue, so I knew I had to get them right away – and they didn’t disappoint!

The key to making these Cookie Monster cookies is to cool the dough, use lots of chocolate, and use even more blue food coloring than you think. I really used about 40 drops and still couldn’t get my cookies to match the same gorgeous shade in the video. Either way, I’m thrilled with how they turned out, and I’ll definitely be making them again.

tmp_ISYKMZ_58902f9b73e26e64_IMG_5288.jpg

These are fat cookies, and they have to be to contain the Hershey chocolate. The recipe calls for three squares of chocolate, but I only used two to make sure it would fit. I used a three tablespoon cookie scoop to form the bottom circle of dough, added the chocolate, then covered it with another scoop of cookie dough and molded them together to that they adapt. Like I said, these are big cookies – I love chocolate, but I could barely finish one!

tmp_BO945z_ee05f0822235905d_IMG_5290.jpg

Once you’ve assembled your monster balls of cookie dough, the recipe calls for you to chill them for at least two hours or overnight if you can rock it. I chilled mine for about nine hours, and they still spread a bit when I cooked them, so I recommend chilling them overnight if you can.

tmp_K9xaG5_0b8c1978fbcd7828_IMG_5292.jpg

The blue color makes it a little hard to tell when they’re done, so just watch for the tops of the cookies to set and the bottoms to brown, like in the photo above. Mine took about 25 minutes to cook and came out perfectly soft and chewy. The Hershey chocolate in the middle gets nice and gooey, and it stays that way even after it cools.

These cookies are absolutely amazing and require no more work than a traditional chocolate chip cookie recipe. I highly recommend channeling your inner Cookie Monster and crafting them ASAP.

    1 teaspoon vanilla
    20 to 40 drops of blue food coloring
    1 cup white chocolate chips
    1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
    2 bars of Hershey’s chocolate

directions

  1. In a small bowl, combine flour, cornstarch, baking powder and salt. Put aside.
  2. Melt the butter on the stove or in the microwave. Leave to cool slightly, then add the brown sugar and white sugar and cream together.
  3. Add egg and yolk, plus vanilla, and mix until combined.

Girl Scout cookies were introduced in 1951, with three different flavors.

The Washington Post/Getty Images

Most people have a favorite Girl Scout cookie flavor: it’s usually Samoas or Thin Mints. After all, they’ve been two of the Girl Scouts’ staple cookies for decades.

Thin Mints and Samoas aren’t the only flavors on the chart, so I decided to try all the flavors and rank them from high to low. And even though yes, I have a Go-to Girl Scout cookie, I kept an open mind because I hadn’t tried all the flavors. According to the Girl Scout website, the three most popular cookies are Thin Mints, Samoas, and Tagalongs (aka Peanut Butter Patties).

Before reading my ranking, please know that I don’t like cookies that are too crispy or hard. When I was a teenager I took a bite of a hard cracker and it broke my permanent restraint… so now I don’t trust them and it may (definitely) affect some of my grips decision.

A special thank you to the Girl Scouts for providing me with all the cookies for this very important project. Note that this taste test is unscientific and based solely on my opinion. I’m not an experienced food critic, I just like to try new cookies and piss off my family and co-workers who don’t have the same opinion as me about which cookie is best. Here’s how I ranked the 12 cookies and why.

But first…

This is how my colleagues voted

Before I started my taste test, I wanted to see which Girl Scout cookie was the favorite among my CNET colleagues. To my surprise, nearly 55% voted for Samoa, with Thin Mints coming in second with just over 27%.

Here are the survey results based on 55 responses:

  • Samoas/Caramel Delites: 54.5% (30 votes)
  • Fine mints: 27.3% (15 votes)
  • Tagalongs / peanut butter pancakes: 10.9% (6 votes)
  • Do-si-dos/peanut butter sandwich: 1.8% (1 vote)
  • Clovers / Shortbread: 3.6% (2 votes)
  • Lemonades: 1.8% (1 vote)

How I Ranked the 12 Girl Scout Cookie Flavors

Note that some cookies may have different names in different regions because they are made at a different bakery.

12. Toffee Tastic

Girl Scouts

It’s the only cookie I couldn’t swallow. After biting into the gluten-free hard cookie and letting it dissolve, I felt like I had just eaten a spoonful of sand. And it didn’t get better from there: the caramel bits tasted more like mediocre caramel and the cookie smelled like real dirt.

Toffee-Tastic is a very hard cookie similar to biscotti, and it might be best to dunk it in tea or coffee to soften it. The cookie was so hard that I performed a “drop test” on a concrete sidewalk to see what it would take to break it. After four attempts and one throw, the cookie eventually broke in half.

Needless to say, I do not recommend this cookie.

11. Adventurers

Girl Scouts

When I first saw Adventurefuls cookies, I thought they would become a new favorite. A caramel filled brownie sounded delicious, but this cookie was anything but what I expected. For starters, I only like the center of freshly baked brownies and won’t eat the edge bits. Unfortunately, this cookie reminds me of overdone brownies.

I first tried to break it in half, but it was super hard – even the caramel wasn’t as soft as I thought – so I bit into the center with my molars. The flavor of the brownie part was meh and the caramel flavored center tasted artificial.

10. Caramel chocolate chips

Girl Scouts

This is another gluten-free option offered by Girl Scouts and although it’s much better than Toffee-Tastic, it’s still bland. The texture is pleasant, soft and presents large pieces of chocolate. However, it’s not much different from a regular chocolate chip cookie. It’s extremely sweet as it has a caramel flavor but it’s also a bit salty which I didn’t like.

9. Lemonades

Girl Scouts

The lemonades taste like the custard of lemon meringue pie, but it’s the frosting that does all the work. The cookie itself leaves little to be desired, and that may be because the frosting is so powerful. It’s one of the biggest cookies Girl Scouts sell, but thin enough to eat in a few bites. If you go for a lemon cookie, I suggest you try Lemon-Ups instead (see below).

8. Tagalongs / peanut butter patties

Girl Scouts

I’ve only ever had the Tagalongs, but for this taste test I got peanut butter patties. It’s been years since I’ve indulged in Tagalongs, but the taste between the two is somewhat different (they’re made in different bakeries).

The top layer is a soft peanut butter while the bottom layer is a crunchy crust, and the entire cookie is coated in a soft chocolate coating. The peanut butter patties are a little too rich in flavor for me but taste great overall.

7. Lemon-Ups

Girl Scouts

I thought lemons and lemonades would taste the same, but that’s not the case at all. Lemon-Ups taste more fruity than lemonades and smell like freshly squeezed lemons. There’s a lemon glaze on the bottom of the cookie that really brings the flavor home, and also a kind of spiciness that you don’t usually get with the average cookie.

I could definitely enjoy these cookies in the spring with a glass of unsweetened iced tea.

6. Girl Scout S’mores

Girl Scouts

S’mores Pop-Tarts heated in a toaster were always my favorite when I was a kid, and Girl Scout S’mores cookies taste similar. They are super soft with a buttery graham cracker sandwich filled with creamy chocolate and marshmallow flavored filling.

But since s’mores aren’t supposed to be cold, I decided to reheat these cookies in my microwave. Fantastic decision. The chocolate melted as it should and the marshmallow filling became much softer. If you buy these, I recommend heating them up (I used 7 second increments to be safe).

Unfortunately, they still don’t taste like the s’mores you make by a campfire, but they are pretty good.

5. Clovers / Shortbread

Girl Scouts

Clovers may look like simple cookies, but the taste is far from simple. They have a perfectly balanced buttery taste with a sweetness that isn’t overpowering. These cookies go great with coffee if you’re the morning cookie type.

This simple shortbread cookie is baked in the shape of the Girl Scouts logo and has a soft texture that melts in your mouth like cotton candy. I now understand why these cookies came in fifth place in our survey above.

4. Back-to-back

Girl Scouts

Do-si-dos are soft, easy-to-break peanut butter sandwiches. Not only do they have peanut butter in the center, but the cracker also tastes like peanut butter. The whole cracker melts in your mouth and has a nice, subtle flavor – I could eat them as is without the peanut butter.

Peanut butter tastes different in Do-si-dos than in Tagalongs because it is not so sweet. To me, it tastes more like genuine peanut butter with no artificial flavors and has the same texture.

3. Fine mints

Girl Scouts

Thin mints are a popular choice for a reason. They melt in your mouth from the first bite and have a minty chocolate flavor similar to an Andean chocolate mint. They are fine and have just the right amount of crunch.

Pro tip: Eat one right after a garlicky meal to cleanse your palate. That’s a close second to brushing your teeth, right?

Just a note, if you ever decide to do a Girl Scout cookie taste test, save the Thin Mints for last as the mint flavor lingers for a while after eating and could compromise the flavor of the next cookie you try. .

2. Toast Yay

Girl Scouts

These cookies propelled Thin Mints to my personal third place, and I’m not sorry about that. Have you ever tried Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal? That’s what Toast-Yay cookies remind me of. They taste like gingerbread and cinnamon graham crackers with a delicious layer of frosting. The crust melts in your mouth almost instantly.

The big bread shaped cookies are almost the size of my palm. Unfortunately, they’re only available in certain regions, so they can be hard to find. But if you can get your hands on some, I highly recommend them.

1. Caramel Samoas/Delites

Girl Scouts

If you know, you know: Samoa cookies are the best. If there ever was a perfect cookie, this is it. It deftly balances coconut, chocolate and caramel with a chewy cookie crust. Samoas are really the only Girl Scout cookies with a classic chewy texture, and they’re also a little sticky if you break them in half. The texture reminds me of a no-bake cookie.

The Samoas Girl Scout cookie is by far the most controversial, as one of the main ingredients is coconut, a constantly polarizing food. It seems like most people I’ve talked to who don’t appreciate the chocolate and caramel donut-like goodness of this cookie aren’t usually coconut fans. Go figure.

You definitely don’t have to agree with how I’ve ranked every Girl Scout cookie flavor. After all, they are just cookies. What you can do is have fun with it, like I did. DoorDash your Girl Scout cookies and host a tasting party with friends and let us know which one is your favorite.

I just cleaned up some old files and discovered a panacea of ​​great old-but-new cookie recipes that live up to the claim of “versatility!” They have almost all been printed before, but are worth repeating from time to time over the years. Our illustrated delights are perfect for Valentine’s Day! Here is the recipe.

Almond prints

(Makes about 35 cookies)

1 cup whole blanched almonds, toasted

1/2 cup sugar

2 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 cup powdered sugar

1/2 tsp. baking powder

1/4 tsp. salt

1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, temp.

1 large egg yolk

1 C. vanilla extract

1/2 tsp. almond extract

1/2 cup (approximately) canned fruit of your choice

Combine almonds and 1/2 cup sugar in a blender/processor and blend until almonds are finely chopped. Combine dry ingredients with salt in a medium bowl. With an electric mixer, beat the butter, egg yolk and almond mixture in a large bowl to combine. Add the vanilla and almond extracts. Mix the dry ingredients into the butter mixture in three batches to create a paste. Cover and refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour. Preheat oven to 350 F: With (clean) hands, roll 1 generous tablespoon of dough for each cookie into a 1 1/4-inch diameter ball. Place on 2 ungreased baking sheets, 2 inches apart. Make a depression in the center of each cookie ball with your fingertips or the handle of a wooden spoon (I used mum’s old thimble!) and bake for 10 minutes. Re-form the depressions and fill each with 1/2 tsp. preserves. Return to the oven and continue baking until lightly browned around the edges and on the bottom – about 8 minutes longer. Let cool on baking sheets 2 minutes then transfer with a metal spatula to a wire rack and let cool completely.

Yet another Valentine’s Day – or special occasion – cookie is this old favorite.

Festive White Chocolate Cherry Oatmeal Cookies

1 cup EACH butter and firm brown sugar

3/4 cup granulated cane sugar

2 large eggs

1 tablespoon of vanilla

2 cups all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons of yeast

1/2 teaspoon EACH baking soda and salt

2 (6-ounce) packages white chocolate bars, coarsely chopped (or equal amount of white chocolate chips)

1 cup dried cherries (or craisins)

Beat butter (or shortening) on ​​medium speed with electric mixer until fluffy, gradually adding sugars, beating well. Add the eggs and vanilla, beat well, then stir in the rolled oats, white chocolate and cherries. Scoop out 1 tablespoon of batter and drop them 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool 2 minutes on the sheets, then remove to wire racks to cool. Makes about 5 dozen.

Pumpkin Walnut Cookies with Ginger Cream Frosting

2 1/2 cups flour

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 tsp salt

2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice

1 cup dark brown sugar, firmly packed

1/2 cup granulated sugar

3/4 cup butter, softened

1 large egg

1 cup canned pumpkin

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 cup raisins (optional)

1 cup walnuts, finely chopped

Set the oven to 350 degrees. Combine first 4 ingredients in medium bowl; put aside. In the mixer bowl, combine and mix the sugars, then add the butter and beat well. Scrape down the sides of the bowl and mix again. Add egg, pumpkin and vanilla; blend until light and fluffy. On low speed, stir in the flour mixture. Stir in raisins and nuts until evenly distributed. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto an ungreased cookie sheet, about 2 inches apart. Bake for 20 to 24 minutes or until a tester in the center of the cookie comes out clean. Cool and freeze.

Ginger Cream Cheese Frosting

3 ounces cream cheese, room temperature

4 tablespoons butter, room temperature

Just 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger

2 to 21/2 cups icing sugar, sifted

2 tablespoons (or more) of water

Beat cream cheese, butter and ginger until light and fluffy. Add icing sugar and dilute with water to a suitable consistency. Spread frosting on each cookie, top with pecan or walnut half.

Two essential classics complete our collection of cookies.

In another bowl, sift together the dry ingredients and mix. Add to oil mixture. Stir in the apples, raisins and oats and mix the ingredients well. Drop by heaped teaspoons about 2 inches apart onto lightly oiled baking sheets. Bake 10 minutes or until lightly browned around edges; remove to wire rack to cool.

Carrot/zucchini cookies

1 cup butter

3/4 cup sugar

1 egg

1 teaspoon vanilla

2 teaspoons of yeast

2 cups flour

1/2 tsp EACH salt, cinnamon

1/2 cup EACH grated carrots and zucchini

1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Set the oven to 350 degrees. Cream butter and sugar, then beat until fluffy; add egg and vanilla. Combine the dry ingredients and beat into the mixture. Stir in carrots, zucchini and walnuts. Place on greased cookie sheets and bake for about 20 minutes. Remove with spatula from foil to wire racks or waxed paper to cool. Glaze if desired after cooling.

Tip: Add 1/3 cup raisins to batter if desired (or 1/2 cup chocolate chips for a surprise treat).

Amish cook Columnist Gloria Yoder

Who likes healthy or gluten-free dishes? For years I was a little skeptical when biting into a new dish with the title “healthy”. While I was intrigued by the idea of ​​it being healthy, it was that thing of expecting it to be a good notch lower than regular baked goods. You know how these gluten-free bars tend to be crumbly, not to mention zero sugar in them – not at all.

In an attempt to be kind to my body, I avoided indulging too much in sweet dishes. I experimented with natural sweeteners like stevia. We tried whole wheat flours, but my cookies still weren’t ideal. I gulped when I put a plate of brown-tinted cookies in front of my cookie-loving husband. I backed off when my bars fell apart as I handed them to our kids. Sigh. I wanted to be a good mother, I wanted to give my family healthy and tasty cookies, but it seemed that I would be shorter than otherwise. Ah, my dear husband, no, he would never complain. Yet, without him telling me, I knew how much he loved soft cookies with lots of frosting. Again he assured me that he really didn’t want me to use too much sugar or white flour for our growing family.

Even when we found recipes we enjoy as a family, I was a little wary of passing them on to you all. You know, what if that sounds like another dry, less-than-tasty affair. Then one day I received a kind letter from a reader in Inverness, Florida asking me why we use so much sugar.

I was like, okay, I have to be more specific about what we personally use for sweeteners. That’s the deal: the recipes I send you are the ones most people in our community use, then when I make them for our family, I switch to natural sweeteners such as stevia and our newest favorite, xylitol of birch. A doctor, who works with a number of Daniel’s family members, explained that birch xylitol offers many health benefits while sweetening any dish. As with many other baked goods, we buy it in bulk to get it at a better price. Besides, just like chocolate, do not give your dog birch xylitol, because his stomach is not made for it and could make him sick!

Julia, who loves to cook, got tired of always having to substitute so many items in one recipe. At her request, I bought a new cookbook (Thanks to a reader who sent me money to buy me something!)

This cookbook, Amazingly Simple, by Ruth Shirk, is the one she saw at my mother’s house. She said this would be just what she needed to make more baking for our family. True to her word, since the first day we got her, she’s used her more times than I could count! Seven-year-old Austin is on his heels, constantly wanting to bake cookies or bars. The color photos show them what the final product will look like.

And now, from a mother’s perspective, you know what it’s like to see your child struggling with physical or emotional needs. After years of trying and knowing something was wrong, we finally decided that as a family we were going to change our diet. For now, we’re cutting out sugar, dairy, gluten, eggs (we use our quail eggs because they’re easier to digest) and other things that tend to cause food allergies. The results have been worth the effort time and time again. I thank God, it is He who has heard all the calls day and night, for our little ones! There have been times when God has miraculously provided healing for the moment. We praise it for that, along with natural foods to nourish our bodies. He hears our cries even though dark times tend to last much longer than we often would. Keep looking up – every rainbow is the result of rain!

As you can hear, we have found some recipes that we really like, always with the name “healthy”.

Here is our all-time favorite. My cousin Regina, who does missionary work in Bolivia, shared it with us. We have done many full pots since then. We actually mix the dry ingredients, like 12-24 batches at a time, then I keep the mix in my canister and use it as a brownie mix. With our family size, I always make more than one batch at a time. We have this giant saucepan that Daniel’s parents gave us that contains four batches. That’s enough to last more than a day, giving me a break!

If you serve these brownies to your guests, they’ll never guess the beans are the secret ingredient.

Healthy Fudge Brownies

2 cups black beans, cooked and drained

4 large eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla (optional)

1/3 cup olive oil

1/2 cup honey or xylitol

6 tablespoons cocoa

1 ⁄2 tsp salt

1 teaspoon of stevia powder

3/4 teaspoon baking powder

1 tablespoon of instant coffee

Blend the eggs in a blender until frothy, add the cooked beans (hot or cold), then add the remaining ingredients and blend until smooth. Pour into a greased 9 by 9 inch pan. If desired, sprinkle with a handful of chocolate chips or chopped nuts of your choice. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.

It is eaten hot out of the oven with fresh milk or ice cream. Leftovers can be refrigerated or frozen. — Gloria Yoder is an Amish wife and mother of six
