We have had the darndest time getting Jade of the cystic fibrosis to take her Pedisaure. Oh, she’ll take the Ensure Clear without any trouble, but the nice fatty Pediasure is rejected. Since we have several cases, I think I might as well try to sneak it into things. Like baked goods.
Some time ago I discovered a little bit of Coke is an awesome ingredient in chocolate-chip cookies. So… I worked to create a cookie recipe I can dump Pediasure into.
The result was a pretty puffy cookie with a chewy texture, rather reminiscent of a proper pumpkin cookie. It tastes good and I can get my toddler to take Pediasure on the sly.
1 cup of brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 stick of butter
2/3 bottle of vanilla Pediasure
Mix these together until pretty. Then add
1/2 cup Coca Cola
2 3/4 cups of flour
1 tsp of baking soda
1 tsp of salt
Mix until just combined.
Then add the sweet stuff, like
1 cup of chocolate chips
1/2 cup of chopped nuts (totally optional, but I like nuts)
Bake at 350 degrees for 12 minutes.
