I’ve been meaning to post daily, but with Brent being away, I’m solo with work, house duties, dogs and of course Sienna, so time is limited. I know what the single mom’s are feeling like this week!!!
I was so tired this morning that I slept in. I have a hard time going to bed early lately, so much stuff on the brain!! I’m going to try and get a workout in later today. I did do my leg workout yesterday AM which was great. My legs are a bit sore today. I did it in the middle of my living room so all my neighbors could drive by and see LOL! But I was in my ugly pajamas! haha!
OK, so I GIVE IN!!! I’ll post the recipe! Lots of comments/messages on my Facebook Page for it…so here it is!!!
I modified the recipe from Tropical Traditions website.
Chocolate PB Coconut No Bake Cookies
Makes 12 cookies
1/4 cup extra virgin coconut oil (will be solid at room temp)
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 cup honey
1/2 cup natural peanut butter
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup quick oats
Combine the first 3 ingredients in a saucepan over medium heat until all melted together. Boil for a couple minutes and take off heat. Stir in peanut butter and vanilla and lastly oats.
Drop by Tablespoon onto waxed paper. Store in freezer for at least 30 minutes
****It will be tempting to eat them before they go in the freezer but WAIT!!!! Have a taste AFTER they’ve been in the freezer for 30 minutes!!!!!
Can be stored in fridge or freezer.
