Soooo I planned on whining and complaining to you guys about my 4 day stomach flu, but then I realized you might want to punch me in the face when I told you this was my first bout of sickness in nearly 3 years…. So change of plans.
Instead, I’ll just tell you how sorry I am for not getting my “Monthly Things; April edition” up on the blog over the weekend. Because I know you are all, and by all of you, I mean the 3 or so of you who actually follow me (hi Mom) are on the edge of your seats wondering where it is. For the rest of you who are wondering what Monthly things are, you can check them out via the menu up top.
I will post April’s version in a couple of days. It will mostly consist of copious amounts of Hawaii pictures, that will make you want to either plan your own Hawaiian holiday, or just punch me in face.
Not really sure where my violent obsession with punching in the face is coming from…. I’ll just stop.
You should just stay calm and make theses super healthy (and yummy) cookies. ;)
Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
¼ Cup of Agave Nectar
¼ Cup of Honey
½ Cup of Natural Smooth Peanut Butter
1 Banana, Mashed
¼ Cup of Coconut Oil, Melted
1 Teaspoon of Vanilla
½ Baking Soda
½ Baking Powder
½ Teaspoon Cinnamon
½ Teaspoon of Salt
1 ½ Cup of Rolled Oats, Ground up in a blender
1 ½ Cup of Rolled Oats
1 Cup of Raisins
Pre Heat your oven to 325 degrees. Line a couple of baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
In a large bowl mix together the wet ingredients (the first six ingredients). In a medium bowl, whisk the baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, salt and both rolled oats (grind up 1 ½ cups of oats in a blender). Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and mix until just combined. Fold in the raisins.
Using a tablespoon, scoop the cookies dough onto the prepared baking sheets. At this point you can flatten them with the back of a spoon, or your hand, I just left mine all round and stuff.
Bake in the oven for 13-16 minutes, or until golden brown. Allow to cool on a wire rack, or just shove them in your mouth all hot and soft.
