Happy Hump Day!
I love Wednesday’s….don’t you?
It means the week is half over. It means two short days until the weekend. It means my blog post practically writes itself thanks to Jenn over at Peas & Crayons!
Why?…..because it is What I Ate Wednesday! A great link party hosted by none other than the fabulous Jenn 🙂
So let me give you a little taste of what I ate this week. Instead of giving you my eats for the day, I have decided to give you the best eats of my week so far!
- almost Elvis pancakes w/ grilled banana
- oven roasted corn
- peanut butter chocolate chip cookies
- overnight oats w/ blueberries
- blueberry pie
- boiled crawfish
I know it doesn’t seem like a well rounded meal plan. I promise other items where a part of my meals, theses are just some of the best. Other items include things like:
- tomato sandwiches
- hummus & carrots
- water (always)
- grilled sausage
So I have enjoyed lots of foods lately! But I must tell you, I was super excited when I baked these wonderful cookies!
Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies (adapted from Clean Eating Mag)
- 1c natural peanut butter
- 1/2c powdered sugar
- 1 large egg
- 1/2t baking soda
- 1/4t sea salt
- 4T semi-sweet chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 350°F. In a medium bowl, stir together first 5 ingredients until blended. Stir in chocolate.
- Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls onto parchment-lined baking sheets. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until lightly browned. Let cool on baking sheets for 5 minutes. Remove to a wire rack and let cool for 15 more minutes.
Finally a cookie that we do not have to feel guilty about eating. I have to admit that I was skeptical about this cookie when I came across the original recipe, but it is a tasty one. The original recipe calls for almond butter, and for 3/4 cup of natural sugar. I substituted powdered sugar and decreased it to 1/2 cup. The substitute was made because I was out of organic turbinado sugar. Needless to say it is time for groceries in our household! Of course you can add the full amount of sugar if you would like. I for one love the taste of peanut butter so I didn’t need it. Not to mention that the chocolate chips gives the cookies the sweetness they need!
So go throw a batch of these together and enjoy…guilt free!
