Sure to Please

These bad boys are sure to please! They didn’t last long in my house! The great thing is… they have the same taste and texture as your grandmas classic chocolate chip cookies! They are chewy, soft baked goodness!

The best part if these amazing cookies??? No guilt whatsoever! Also, they have collagen in them, so they are not only amazing for your sweet tooth, but also amazing for your hair, skin, bones and over-all health!

Yes please!

I always test my recipes on my husband. He’s very happy to do so, but he is also very honest with me. I really appreciate honesty, so I always know if my recipes are good, because he always “says it like it is”.

When my husband first tried these, he was standing in our kitchen after a long day of work. I asked him to try my cookies and tell me what he thought. He smiled his handsome smile, grabbed a cookie in his manly “graceful way” and took a huge bite. I watched as his shoulders relaxed, his eyes closed and he let out a sigh. He didn’t didn’t have to say a word. I just knew that I nailed it! Classic!

“It’s Aliiiiive!!!”

I have really come a long way with my cooking and baking skills. I’m dead serious when I say that my husband has not always enjoyed my food. When we first got married, I could barely make pancakes without burning them to a crisp!

Remember how I said that my husband is very honest with me? He definitely used to tell me that I had “burnt dinner” or “destroyed that recipe”. The sad part was, he was right. Although I have learned a lot along the way in my almost-11-years of marriage, cooking and baking…I have still not arrived at all. The thing I do have going for me is that I love to learn and create new recipes, and that seems to keep me on my toes!

Some days in my kitchen, I feel like Frekenstien, creating a monster (if you saw the messes that I make, you might believe me). You can almost hear me screaming, “it’s alive!!!” on days when I have created a new recipe. I enjoy every minute of it! (except the messed and dishes….I hate doing dishes!)

Shakes & Cookies for Lunch

The other day, I was running late to a rehearsal for our Wednesday night worship services. The great part of doing what I do is that I get to meet up with my team at the park! You see, the girls that were practicing with me, they have kids too. So, we take our kids to the park, pack a lunch and a guitar, and practice our worship songs! Not a bad gig, right?

 

As I was saying, I was running late, so I threw a Mint & Chip Shake together in the blender (check out my recipe page for the amazing recipe), and threw two chocolate chip cookies in a bag. I knew that I could eat them with my shake because they were both the same kinds of fuels (THM-S). Score! Who else gets to eat chocolate chip cookies and a mint and chip shake for lunch??? The great thing about this shake…jam packed with nutrition!

Yes, I ate two “desserts” for lunch, and I loved it!

Now that your mouth is properly watering about now, here is the recipe! Eat and be merry!

Enjoy!

    1. So glad to hear!!! it makes me so happy to know people are trying and loving my recipes :) Just a random question...would you be interested in a cookbook if I was to make one? Also...as for keeping them in the fridge...I didn't. They seemed to be just fine in a Tupperware container on the counter. They lasted for about 3-4 days, but my husband ate them fast. I made a ton of them too :) Hope that helps!
    1. Actually no! The texture is just how I like my chocolate chip cookies! I don't like the thin and oily ones, I like the soft and chewy version...so these are perfect! I think adding the oat fiber to the almond flour does the trick! Let me know if you end up trying them! Thanks! -Z
