My cousin got married recently and the whole family was in attendance.
To avoid being interrupted during the open bar, I let my niece use my camera so that she wouldn’t tug at my dress every minute begging to play with my toy.
This week, I was playing with my camera and planned to empty out the memory card. I found more than a dozen pictures of my 3 year old niece Jazzy taking pictures of herself. It took her a few dozen shots to finally get it right.
The 36th picture and she finally captured her whole face. Never give up
After she was done with my toy camera, she ran around for hours.
So it wasn’t a surprised that our little darling pooped out before dinner was served.
But she woke up in time for dessert.
Just like her auntie, she loves her desserts!!
Last weekend I visited my niece and my sister and baked them cookies. The recipe I used is adapted from Erica at Itzy’s Kitchen.
Peanut Butter (Flour) and Chocolate Chip cookies
- 1 cup peanut flour
- ½ cup whole wheat white flour
- ¼ tsp baking powder
- ¼ tsp baking soda
- ½ cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup oil (I used canola and grapeseed oil)
- 2 tablespoons flax mixed with 6 tablespoons water (or 2 eggs)
- 1 teaspoon molasses
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 cup chocolate chunks
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees
- Mix wet ingredients in one bowl and dry in another.
- Combine wet & dry ingredients and add chocolate chips
My sister said it taste like Reece’s Pieces peanut butter cups.
These cookies are not too sweet. They have a little crunch on the outside and very chewy on the inside.
The molasses added additional flavor to the cookies. If you don’t have molasses, you can just add more brown sugar to the recipe.
Happy Hump Day everyone!!!
P.S. Thank you Erica for this delicious recipe. Also, CONGRATULATIONS to her on her big announcement this week. So exciting!!!
