AAAUUGHHHHHHH WHYYYYYYYY didn’t I put it in the food processor?!?!?!! That way there wouldn’t be awkward disgusting grains of rice in my brownies. I DON’T FORGIVE MYSELF FOR THIS I AM SO STUPIIIIDDDDDDDD
Ok back to the recipe. But really, I am stupid.
With my leftover Oreo rice, I did the only thing I know how with chocolatey starchy goops: turn them into brownie batter.
Start with some Oreos in a food processor. I think I used 22 Oreos, and maybe 5 or 6 sheets of graham crackers? Crumbs go in a bowl, along with a can of sweetened condensed milk and a teaspoon of vanilla.
After stirring and tasting, I realized that it was painfully sweet and needed something salty and bulky to balance it out. Salted peanuts or pretzels would have been perfect, but I had neither. But you know what I did have?
Mixed them until the chips were all broken up.
Next, into the oven on “medium-low” for 20-ish minutes.
The tops were crackly, and the texture was very brownie-like (albeit a bit dry because mine burned around the edges). So sadly, these cannot be called man bars.
Dad:“I do not know any Oreo recipes; I only know that you can take them apart, and stack up the centers into a huge giant stack of white stuff, which (it turns out) is not nearly as tasty in a large pile as it is when eaten between the chocolatey cookies.”
Also suggested smoked Oreos and Oreo panini, neither of which I take as serious submissions.

I call it: Oreo zatar
An assortment of sweet, bready foods (cake, pancakes, muffins, etc.)
An assortment of sweet liquids, gels, and foams for dipping, such as:
Dulce de leche
Mashed bananas (since I know you love mashed bananas)
Oreos, finely crushed
Arrange the sweetbreads (haw haww) on a large, decorative plate. Place each of your dipping liquids and the crushed oreos in individual ramekins. To eat, dip a bread product into the dipping liquid of your choosing, then into the crushed oreos before placing in your mouth.
(Click this if you’re scratching your head: this is zatar. It’s an herb blend. You dip a chunk of bread in olive oil, then dip it in the zatar.)
And the winner is…
You’re ALL winners! That’s right, I will make all four of these delicious, healthy recipes on the blog. Watch out for them in the coming weeks.
And you’ve all won a personal Oreo chef – though I think the only person who actually wanted to eat the recipe they suggested was Lara.
Put salad ingredients in the food processor and liquefy them, because you’ve been eating nothing but soft fruits and polenta since yesterday and you really really just want to eat at least something that contains vegetables today.
This was not tasty like V8, and it was still not fit for consumption in my condition because chunks of crunchy carrot and leathery tomato skins were still floating in there unprocessed. Homemade vegetable juice sans juicer was a fail all around.
