Naturally sweet and chewy, dabbled with chunks of choc chips and kissed with peanut butter… These taste just like the real deal.
I’m a second stomach kinda gal. I may have polished off 3 bowls of chilli for dinner but that does stop the pangs of ‘I WANT CHOCOLATE’ coming from my brain.
Key-word; Brain. The brain tricks us eating into sugar when we are sad, lonely and bored all the time. Admittedly I usually decide its easier to go with the flow and indulge instead of letting it taunt me all night. But post Christmas sugar blitz I have been trying to break the cycle with some faux-sweet treats:
I have found the perfect chocolate-mint tea that sometimes satisfies (when paired with 3 squares 90% dark chocolate)
Berry smoothies work
Bananas dipped in peanut butter (for the peanut butta lova’s)
Banana ‘icecream’ (but I may or may not have broke my food processor blending dates)
And then there is these…. cookie dough balls….um yeah. Packed to the brim with energizing and satisfying nuts, sweetened with dates, and flavoured with peanut butter. h e l l y e a h (more…)
That is a question I pose for you today after enjoying the most ooey goeey peanutbutter chocolate chunk cookies. These have so much flavor they should be ILLEGAL, they satisfy every rees cup craving you’ve ever had without being overbearing.
This is a cookie you eat on a sunday night with a litre of milk by your side. They are messy you may need a plate. They do not travel that well because of their gooey nature so best to enjoy them in the comfort of your own home.
