I was really in the mood to bake yesterday, but didn’t exactly have the time so I made the dough yesterday stored it in the fridge and baked up the cookies today. I wanted to make something healthy that tasted really yummy so I found a recipe for Super-Charge-Me Cookies They were a little more crumbly then I had anticipated, but the sweet maple flavor made up for the mess! I think that my favorite part about these cookies is that I can make the same cookies each time, but put different mix-ins.
I changed a couple of things in the recipe based on the ingredients I had in my pantry.
Super Charge Me Cookies (Original recipe from Dreena’s Vegan Recipes)
- 1 cup of oats
- 2/3 cup whole wheat flour
- 1/4 tsp sea salt
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/3 cup dried chopped apricots and dried cranberries
- 1/4 cup chopped almonds
- 1/3 cup white chocolate chips
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/3 cup flax meal
- 1/2 cup maple syrup
- 3 Tbsp peanut butter (can be any nutbutter)
- 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 Tbsp canola oil
Brian really likes to have garlic bread with his pasta, but all of our bread went moldy 😦 so I got creative and made garlic pita! I took half of a Joseph’s pita, topped it with garlic, mozzarella, and parmesan. He said it was a great sub for the real stuff.
After dinner, Brian and I watched the finale of Next Food Network Star and now are ready for bed. Gotta get some beauty rest before we start the week!
