Hey there everyone. Today I am traveling to Chicago to brave the cold! Hah. But really, the warmest day this week is only 21 degrees as the HIGH! Ouch!!! Safe to say I will not be spending much time outside because add the wind chill and it is brutal! Since I am traveling all morning and what not I am typing up this post a little in advance and bring you a yummy recipe. I kinda forgot about getting this up until I ate multiple spoonfuls of my crumbly cookie dough Thursday night after a long babysitting job. The kids sorta had a crash and burn in the behavior department right before I got there so it was a little rough. This was the second family of the day I was watching kids for and the youngest of the bunch, a 2 year old girl and 3 year old boy. That is a tough age! We made it through and the mom felt so bad that they were acting so badly, I told her not to worry about it, I am a very experience nanny/babysitter. It happens, they are kids. I was ready for a treat when I got home though and luckily this cookie dough was already made! Almond Cashew Cookie Dough:
-1/2 c. almond flour
-1 T coconut flour
-2 T melted cinnamon Earth Balance spread (or other buttery/coconut spread)
-2 T cashew butter
-10 drops of stevia
-2 T mini chocolate chips (or a handful to save from measuring)
Directions: 1. Melt buttery spread, the cinnamon is sweet which makes it very cookie dough like and non dairy, and cashew butter in microwave for 10-15 seconds in a medium-small bowl.
2. Add flours and stevia drops to bowl and stir together until crumbly mixture forms. Make sure there are no big buttery clumps.
3. Stir in chocolate chips and EAT!
Note– you can also just use almond butter or any nut butter in place of the cashew butter, I just like how salty/sweet cashew butter is!
See, it is super easy and much better for you than raw cookie dough or a sugar filled dessert. It was a yummy after dinner snack and satisfied my sweet tooth because I felt like I was eating cookie dough.
Today I am linking up for meatless Monday with Tina Muir and Confessions of a Mother Runner, plus the Real Food Recipe link up with Jo-Lynne Shane and Alison Ray and Tasty Tuesday at LeanLena and AHungryRunner, and Candy Fit!
