Chocolate Peanut Butter Drizzle Cookies

Hi guys! Hope you’re all doing well;)) It’s been steady desserts for the past little while, and I’m not complaining! I have a pretty big sweet tooth. And, as always, I need to find a way to satisfy my peanut butter addiction. So, I present to you (insert drum roll here) Chocolate Peanut Butter Drizzle Cookies! They’re sweet and so chocolatey, and make the perfect snack. Then there’s that PEANUT BUTTER DRIZZLE. I mean, don’t even get me started. This is a match made in cookie heaven. Also, I tried using raw brown sugar, which isn’t as processed as white sugar, for the first time, and I actually really like it! You can probably sub normal brown sugar or coconut sugar if you want though. Excuse my rambling, I understand if you just want to get to the cookies already. Scroll down for the recipe!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Drizzle Cookies

Serves: Makes 10-12 cookies

Total Time: 60 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cups oat flour
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup raw brown sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • 1 ripe banana, mashed
  • Peanut butter, for drizzling (or dipping, I won’t judge)

Directions:

  1. Mix together the dry ingredients in a large bowl.
  2. Add in the mashed banana, vanilla, and egg, and stir until combined. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let chill in the fridge for 30 minutes. Sometimes you can be a rebel and skip steps like this, but I would not recommend that unless you want to spend ten years trying to form nice balls.
  3. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Scoop out heaping tablespoons of the dough and form into round balls. Place them on a baking sheet and make a criss-cross pattern with your fork to flatten them out a bit.
  4. Bake for 15 minutes, then remove from the oven and let them cool completely.
  5. To make the drizzle, spoon a little bit of natural peanut butter into a small ziploc bag, and cut a little hole in the corner. Use it as a piping bag, and drizzle away. PS. THIS STEP IS NOT OPTIONAL. THE PEANUT BUTTER DRIZZLE IS ESSENTIAL TO THE STRUCTURAL INTEGRITY OF THIS COOKIE.

So yeah, there you go! Let me know if you make these beauties and how they turned out;)

St. Patrick’s Day Oats

Hi there! I hope you’re all doing well and staying positive through this crazy time. I think it’s important to keep celebrating holidays, even smaller ones like St. Patrick’s Day, to bring back a sense of normality into our lives. So tomorrow, wear green, be festive and enjoy some special dishes! These St. Patrick’s Day oats are a great breakfast option:)) They’re given an awesome green colour by matcha powder, which tastes great as well. Greek yogurt makes them super creamy, and you can add any extra toppings that your heart desires!! Chia seeds, maple syrup and more yogurt are what I went with. Here’s the recipe for these green oats:

St. Patrick’s Day Oats

Serves: 1

Total Time: 15 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1/3 cup large flake oats (or rolled oats)
  • 1 tsp matcha green tea powder
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/2 tbsp plain greek yogurt

Directions:

  1. Mix together the oats, matcha, maple syrup, and water in a small pot. Bring to a boil over high heat, then turn the burner temperature down to low and let simmer until your desired thickness is reached, about 7 minutes.
  2. Remove the oats from the heat and stir in the greek yogurt. Transfer into a bowl, top with nuts, fruit, or seeds, and enjoy!

I hope you all have a Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Stay safe and be kind;)))

Cinnamon Raisin Apple Pancakes

Happy Pancake Day!! I wasn’t able to post yesterday, but you should be glad I made you wait because I have waaay more time today and was able to make these delicious pancakes. If I would’ve posted yesterday it probably would’ve been a nasty spinach salad or something. Pancakes are the best, man. Especially when they have apples and raisins in them like these ones do! They’re sweet and cinnamony and come together faster than it takes me to eat a whole batch, and trust me, I’m a pretty speedy eater when pancakes are involved. Now I’ll let you get to the recipe, because I don’t know about you, but I don’t like when blogs write twenty million things that you have to scroll through before you get to the pancakes. BRING ON THE PANCAKES ALREADY!

Cinnamon Raisin Apple Pancakes

Servings: 2

Total Time: 45 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1 1/3 cup oats
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 1/4 cup water
  • 1 small apple, peeled and diced
  • 1/4 cup raisins

Directions:

  1. In a blender, combine the oats, banana, chia seeds, cinnamon, coconut oil, baking powder and water until smooth. Transfer the batter to a bowl and stir in the apples and raisins.
  2. Heat a pan over medium-low heat. Spoon the batter into the pan by tablespoons. Cook the pancakes on the first side until bubbles appear and stay in the pancake, about 2-3 minutes. Flip and cook for another 2-3 minutes, then transfer to a plate.
  3. Enjoy!!

Hope you like these beauties!! I’m pretty sure that they would freeze well, and you could just nuke some in the microwave in a Monday morning and be good to go. That’s the kind of pick me up I need on a Monday, anyway.

Apple Pie

Hi guys! There’s nothing better to end off the week than a nice slice of Apple Pie, and that’s just what I made today. This Pie has a super easy to make crust, a delicious, cinnamony filling, and is no bake!!! There’s no refined sugar in it either, and is healthy so you can feel good about eating it. Don’t get me wrong though; this Pie is SUPER tasty, especially when it comes to the filling. Hope you enjoy!!

Apple Pie

Serves: Makes 1 9-inch pie

Total Time: 45 minutes

Ingredients:

For the crust:

  • 2 1/2 cups oat flour
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 tbs maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup water

For the filling:

  • 3 medium apples, diced
  • 1 tbs cinnamon
  • 1/2 tbs vanilla
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tbs oat flour

Directions:

  1. In a large bowl, combine the crust ingredients until a dough forms. Press the mixture into the bottom of a 9-inch pie plate, taking a little bit out if the crust is too thick. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the freezer for 15 minutes, then place in the fridge.
  2. In a pot, add in the apples, cinnamon, vanilla and water. Bring to a boil and then reduce to a simmer. Let the filling cook for 10-15 minutes until the apples are soft and any remaining liquid is syrupy. Add in the oat flour and cook for another 2 minutes, then remove from the heat.
  3. Let the filling cool, then spread it in an even layer on the crust. Cover with plastic wrap again and place in the fridge to cool completely before eating.
  4. Enjoy!

This Pie is just what you need to snuggle up by the fire with on those cold winter nights;) Have a great weekend everyone!
