Hello strangers! Well actually I have been the stranger lately. Ever get into one of those “funks.” You have too much to do and no motivation what so ever to do anything. That was my last week, luckily for me I snapped out of it relatively quickly. Of course the week of not getting much done means that this week I have been crazy busy trying to catch up. The to do list is written and way to long for my own good. Oh well, that’s what I get for feeling blah.
After a fun morning working at pre-school, let me tell you 30 kiddos are loud, really loud, playing with that many kiddos sure does bring out the kiddo in me. What is better than playing all morning, a special treat for a friday afternoon…we made cookies. Vegan cookies… Vegan peanut butter chocolate chip cookies. Boy howdy are they delicious. I will even go as far to say they are good for you, as far as cookies go that is.
Of course I am going to share, these are super simple:
For the oatmeal flour, I use old fashioned oats and whirl it in the food processor.
Mix, mix, mix
Someone is sneaking the chocolate chips, her very most favorite thing. “Mommy your the best” when chocolate comes into our home, which is NOT very often.
Waiting for the oven….this dough will be thick, so don’t freak out about that. Seems thicker to me than “normal” peanut butter cookies.
All done, and yum. Now I am not one with a major sweet tooth. These cookies are sweet to me, you might want to taste the dough (hey you can! they are vegan!) to see if you want to add extra sugar. For us, they are perfect.
A Friday Tip too, in our house, kiddo eats a bunch of apple sauce, especially the ones that come in the little cups. Did you know those little cups hold exactly a half a cup? I have a small collection of them, we use them for painting and freezing foods. So with the left over can of pumpkin, I fill up those cups, pop them in a zippy bag and freeze. Next time I need pumpkin, it’s already measured out…smart right.
Someone said she didn’t sneak an extra cookie, I let her get away with it this time, she has been so awesome lately. Would love to know if you try to make these cookies, they are quite yummy.
