Honey-Whole Wheat Peanut Butter Chippers

>> Thursday, January 5, 2012

It's been hard to completely cut the cookie habit. As I posted yesterday, I've been trying to create something that's ultra-healthy. Green cookies aren't entirely appetizing, even if they are just fine to eat.

Today's recipe is sort of in the middle of the two extremes.


What you'll need . . .
  • 1/4 cup Earth Balance
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons Ener-G plus 5 tablespoons water
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1-1/3 cup wheat flour
  • 1/3 cup rolled oats
  • Pinch salt

Method . . .
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Cream together the Earth Balance, peanut butter, honey, and egg replacer (with water), and vanilla.
  3. Add the wheat flour, oats, and salt. Mix until moistened.
  4. Optional: Toss in 1/2 cup of chocolate chips.
  5. Scoop out heaping tablespoons, roll into balls, and flatten with your palm. Place on cookie sheet.
  6. Bake 8 to 10 minutes. Until golden.

The better eating continues, though. Stephen made us some tasty hummus with sliced carrots for a snack. I've been munching on them all day between crying spells.

No -- not my crying!

Ada has been i.n.c.r.e.d.i.b.l.y fussy this past week. We think it's a growth spurt. OK. We HOPE it's a growth spurt. Just to be sure, during some nap time, I've been watching my friend Sarah's copy of the Happiest Baby on the Block DVD.

Alright. Off to change into my cold weather gear before Stephen gets home.

I WILL get my run in today.
I WILL get my run in today.
I repeat . . . I WILL get my run in today.
