You’ll have to work a bit to mix up this dough. It’s best to use your (clean) hands near the end to get it all worked together.

Besides, you’ll be using your (again, clean) hands to roll the dough into ping-pong sized balls.

Bake at 375 for 12-14 minutes. While baking, unwrap Reese’s Mini Cups. And don’t forget to unwrap a few for quality control testing. It’s important to make sure they’re fresh. The only way to really know is to taste one, or five.

Allow cookies to cool and set before storing. If that’s at all possible. Or just eat them all at once while they’re melty and gooey. That’s perfectly acceptable.

    Could I substitute the oat fiber for oat flour and make these an E?

    1. Amanda Coers

      Yes, that would make these an E – I’m not entirely sure of the measurements yet though. I do plan to make an E version of these blondies (with some banana!) soon, though.

      1. Natalie Hasse

        Thanks So much!!!!

  2. Jackie

    These look amazing, Amanda! Thanks so much. :)
    Any suggestions on how to make them dairy-free though?

    1. Amanda Coers

      I’m not sure on that one, Jackie – the cottage cheese helps with some texture and density. You could try unsweetened applesauce, but that would make this an E I think or closer to an E than FP.

  3. Dana

    These sound amazing! I am going to try then succeed with Greek yogurt bc that is what I have on hand hope they turn out right☺

  4. Leslie Armstrong Mills

    Do you know if Ricotta would work? I can’t find a FF cottage cheese that tastes edible :-)

  5. lesliegleans

    I can’t seem to find FF cottage cheese that tastes edible; could I use FF ricotta?

    1. Amanda Coers

      I think it should work well as a substitute

  6. Jennifer

    have you tried making it with just the doonks of stevia powder? does the lack of bulk of the xylitol /erythritol make a difference in the final product?

    1. Amanda Coers

      I have not tried this yet with stevia to see if there is a difference in the overall volume. I’d be very interested to hear results

  7. Shelly

    Do you think using 1% cottage cheese instead of fat free would take it out of FP territory? I’m thinking not. I never buy fat free, only 1%.

    1. Amanda Coers

      Yes it should still be FP

  8. Lisa

    Hi Amanda! I am still using up my Swansons protein powder. Do you by any chance know what the measurement is on the THM protein powder scoop?

    1. Amanda Coers

      I believe it’s 1/4 cup :)

  9. Deborah

    Where can I find oat fiber and defatted peanut flour?

    1. Amanda Coers

      I like to order mine from the Trim Healthy Mama website

  10. Amanda

    I have a couple questions… Can cocoa powder be added to this and still be a FP? Also how many are a FP serving? I really enjoy your blog thank you for sharing so much!

    1. Amanda Coers

      Cocoa powder can be added, perhaps 1/4 cup :) if your mixture seems too thick you can try adding a tablespoon of almond milk

  11. Tara

    Any way to make this without the protein powder? I use pea protein but it’s a whole lot drier than other ones… thanks!

    1. Amanda Coers

      I think it should be fine to make these without the protein powder.

  12. Jennifer

    Could you sub in the new Baking Blend for the oat fiber?

  13. mirian

    What can I use instead of oat fiber?
    Ihave all the ingredients except that.

  14. mandy

    How many servings can I have and remain FP?

    1. Amanda Coers

      One should be good for a snack, two for a meal :)
