I am a freak about food.
Yesterday morning as I was packing my lunch I noticed something was missing...I had put all the ingredients for my taco salad down on the bottom shelf of the fridge (hidden from bf's view) in order to
I. Am. A. Freak.....it's just food, but it really upset me.
I'm over it now, I'm not mad the bf or anything, but this salad sure was missing something.
In other news, in order to quell my sadness from the guacamole incident of '13, I made some chocolate chip cookies last night after dinner.
OH wait, here was dinner:
I saw a recipe on Pinterest for cookies that didn't use any flour, sugar or eggs and I wanted to try them.
I adapted This Recipe from "Watching What I Eat" and made these cookies
Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies
- 2 ripe bananas, mashed until smooth & creamy
- 1/3 cup chocolate PB2(or regular PB2)
- individual cup of unsweetened applesauce
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 1/2 cups oats
- 1/4 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees
- In a large bowl, mix 1/3 cup dry chocolate PB2 with 3 TBS of water
- Mash in bananas until completely combined
- Add in the applesauce and vanilla extract mix again until all are completely combined
- Add in the oats and chocolate chips and combine well
- Chill dough in fridge for 10 minutes
- Drop dough by spoonfuls onto a cookie sheet
- Bake for 25-30 minutes depending on how you prefer your cookies, a little softer or a little chewier
I calculated this entire recipe to be 15 Points Plus. It will obviously depend on what kind of applesauce, oats or chocolate chips you use and any other modifications or substitutions you might make. I wanted to make 15 cookies so they would be 1 PP each...but I fail at portioning the dough and ended up with 13 cookies, I rounded up and say two cookies for 3PP just to be safe. They are SO GOOD, so good in fact the bf ate one, then went back for another- I know I did something right if he goes back for more, especially when I thought he would say they were weird.
Also, I completed Day 2 of Week 3 of my C25K, feeling better every single run I do, the longer running sections- up to 3 minutes at a time now, aren't even that hard. It's probably time to start upping my speed :)
