Who doesn’t love a good cookie?  I developed this recipe for my mom, who requested a wholesome pb cookie.. I ended up LOVING this recipe and made them for my son’s birthday party this week.  Enjoy!!

Delicious PB Choco-Chip Cookies

2/3 c Organic Peanut Butter, room temperature

1/2 lb unsalted butter, room temperature

1 c raw organic sugar

2 eggs

2 t vanilla

2 1/2 c whole wheat flour

2 c dark chocolate chips (more or less depending on preference)

1.  Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cream peanut butter, butter, and sugar.  Add eggs one at a time, mixing well with each addition.  Mix in vanilla.  Add flour, a little bit at a time until combined.

2.  Refrigerate for 1h – 2 days or freeze for 1 month.  When ready for baking, shape into teaspoon-size balls and place 2″ apart on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.  Press a fork into the top of each cookie to smash them down a little and create a criss-cross pattern.  Bake for 6-8 minutes, or until slightly browned on top.

3.  Enjoy with a glass of delicious cold milk!  🙂

Who doesn’t love chocolate?  This is one of my biggest struggles, I could definitely probably eat chocolate every meal and be happy.  I had to figure out a way to make my chocolate habit beneficial to my body.  Well folks, I figured out a way.  Here’s the recipe I use to make the most DELICIOUS chocolate sauce.. It’s wholesome, natural, and is such a yummy treat!  I use it to dip bananas, nuts, cheese, on top of homemade/natural ice cream, or sometimes even plain.. Rarely does a day pass without me eating at least one serving of this stuff.  You can thank me when you’re licking the bowl clean!  🙂

Megan’s Fabulous Chocolate Sauce

3T honey

1 1/2 T cocoa

1t coconut oil

1T peanut butter/almond butter

dash of vanilla

Put all ingredients in a large ramekin or very small bowl and warm it on the stove or in a toaster oven until it’s warm or is starting to bubble. Stir until everything is smooth and combined.  Use it to dip whatever you wish.. My favorite is bananas!  Yummy!  🙂
