My batter doesn't bake well, what else can I do with it?

glify | Jun 21, 201606:02 AM     1

I mixed together 280g peanut meal (pre-grinded in a blender) with 120g egg whites and 40g whey protein powder. For taste I added 8 packets sweetener.

The batter tasted quite nice and the macro-nutrients are right where I want them (high protein and good-fats).

Problem is when I baked a test cookie (10 minutes at 160C), it wasn't sweet anymore. I blame the artificial sweetener not holding up to baking. Where I live there are no good low cal sweeteners that bake well so this issue can't be avoided.

What else can I do with this batter? I'm happy to turn this into a bowl meal. But in the interest of becoming more skilled with different techniques, I'd like to hear what you guys might do when baking isn't an option.

One thing I saw online was no-bake balls that are just hand rolled and eaten. My mix is a bit on the sticky side although it will roll. I was thinking of adding more meal or protein powder to firm it up a bit. Or roll it in some finely shredded coconut.

Thanks for any other ideas
