I don’t know about you guys, but, growing up, my greatest aspiration was to become Kim Possible. She was pretty and popular, the head cheerleader, AND an action hero. Plus, those green crop tops and cargo pants were quite stylish 😉
Kim Possible truly was an idol of mine. By day, she was dealing with her dorky best friend Ron and obnoxious little brothers Jim and Tim, but by night she was saving the world from super villains, most frequently, her arch nemesis Dr. Drakkin. I’d say she was actually a pretty good role model. Sure, she was a popular cheerleader, but she had a good head on her shoulders and was tough as nails.
I’ve seen every episode of Kim Possible…multiple times (let’s not get into that issue right now….), but there is one in particular that I’ve watched and rewatched…and rewatched, that never failed to crack me up. The episode, “Bad Boy,” entailed Kim’s nemesis, Drakkin’s evil being transported to her friend, Ron. Ron became a wannabe super villain, and Drakkin, no evil left within him, became a sickeningly sweet middle aged man.
One of the things I loved most about this episode was that it proved there was a good person within the evil Dr. Drakkin. I tend to be skeptical and cynical, but I do my best to believe that everyone has the capability to be a good person. As a Christian, I believe that anyone, by faith and dependence on Jesus Christ, can be loving, caring, and kind.
Although this episode spoke to me on an emotional level, it also just made me laugh. Plain and Simple! Seeing the villain become hilariously sweet, was just fun to watch. One of the occurrences that made me laugh until I cried, went a little something like this: Drakkin 2.0 made peanut butter cookies. He walked into his lair, joyfully asking, “Who wants peanut butter stickies?” Even the gruffest of the henchmen raised their hands. I guess peanut butter just speaks to everyone!!!!!
These cookies are gluten free, vegan, refined sugar free, low glycemic, and packed with protein. I considered calling these “peanut butter protein cookies,” but how could I call them anything but, “Drakkin’s peanut butter stickies?” My younger brother wanted to name these “muscle mans,” but that’s a story for a different time…
1/3 cup brown rice syrup
2/3 cup peanut butter
1 cup oat flour
1/4 cup applesauce
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
Pinch of Salt
Instructions: Whisk together oat flour, baking powder, & salt. In a separate bowl, use electric beaters to cream together brown rice syrup and peanut butter. When combined, mix in the applesauce. Slowly incorporate the dry ingredients into the wet. On a parchment lined baking sheet, drop balls of dough and flatten slightly (in a crisscross pattern) with a fork. Bake in a 375 degree oven for 9 minutes. This recipe makes about 12 cookies.
