Guess What Today Is!

Can you guess why today (October 1st) is such a very important day? Yes, it is the first day of October. The leaves are changing, the weather is cooling off (in theory), and sooner than later we will start singing Christmas tunes. That is all true, but none of those reasons are the real factor that plays into making today so special.

Today is National Homemade Cookie Day! What other excuse do you need for heading to the kitchen and whipping up a batch of fresh, hot, gooey cookies right now? Homemade cookies are way better than store bought, and they are easy to make. I have a decadent single serving cookie recipe for you tonight that is sure to cut your cookie cravings (it's HUGE) while letting you keep National Homemade Cookie Day a special one day event.

Peanutty Double Carob Cookies (6)

Giant Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie
serves 1-2
1/3 cup instant oatmeal
2 tbsp peanut flour
¼ tsp baking soda
dash of cinnamon
pinch of salt
½ tbsp. egg yolk
2 tbsp coconut oil
2 tbsp honey
2 tbsp peanut butter
1 tbsp chocolate chips

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees, and spray a giant cookie skillet pan (6”) with oil. Mix the oats, peanut flour, salt, cinnamon, and baking soda together. In a separate bowl, beat the egg, coconut oil, peanut butter, and honey. Combine the wet and dry ingredients, mixing in the chocolate chips. Bake for 12-15 minutes.

If you happen to want a dozen or so cookies, or are inclined to share, I have plenty of other homemade cookie recipes you should try out. They range from intricate, to simple, to healthy, to not-so-healthy, and everything in between. Enjoy!
