    My fav dessert would be Chocolate Pots de Creme or flourless chocolate torte. Can you tell I like chocolate:)

  2. Marco on February 16, 2014 at 12:00 am

    My fav dessert would be chocoate cake!

  3. Steven de Groot on February 20, 2014 at 12:00 am

    I tried it, but It has a artificial taste to it..
    I think it is because of the protein powder. Do you have something that I can put in it as a substitute? Like cottage cheese or something?

    For the rest it tasted great!

      Hi Steven! What protein did you use?

  4. Nick on February 21, 2014 at 12:00 am

    Hey Derek,

    These came out very dry (cooked for 19 min). Any suggestions? Followed the recipe to the letter. More applesauce?

    Thanks again for the site!

    • Derek Howes on February 23, 2014 at 12:00 am

      Hi Nick! Try cooking them for 15:00 (or even less). You can throw in some more apple sauce if you want too! Hope this helps
