Chocolate Chip Cookie Energy Balls

     I have a story to tell you.  I had a hankering to create the perfect sugar free gluten free Chocolate Chip cookie.  Pridefully whipping together my fool proof creation, I smugly added the tray of dough to the oven.  Taking the time to bask in all my raw talent, I anxiously awaited the 10 minute buzzer to alarm.  For someone so full of themselves, you can imagine my shock to discover a giant melted mass form of ingredients scoffing at me.  Taunting me with getting the last word in, I hopelessly removed the blob to rest on the counter.  Having a mini meltdown seemed like the next logical step.  Wiping a tear for dramatic effect, I had a decision to make.  I can use all my energy flopping around on the floor in a hysterical fit, or I can use the same amount of energy in figuring out if these beasts can be turned into beauties.  But how in the world could I turn those catapillars into butterflies!?  So me think'd and me think'd...and then I thunk'd it.  I will crush those devils into delicious crumbs, stir in Almond Butter, shape them into balls, smooth out the edges and roll them into a beautiful white Collagen Creamer powder.  The end result were 22 DELICIOUS Chocolate Chip Cookie Energy Balls, all for 123 calories, 3g net carbs and 4g protein.  I realized it doesn't matter how you win, it matters how you loose...and, you never loose if you learn.  Humility never tasted so good.  Never never give up  ;)
