WIAW & Chia Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Posted Jan 30 2013 6:21am

Good morning everyone

Special thanks to Jenn over at Peas and Crayons for hosting another week of WIAW

WIAWbutton

My day started at 5:30 with this awesome speedy run!  It left me feeling high all morning!  After the run, I did my Tank Top Tabata !  My arms were burning!

I prepped breakfast the night before and dug right into my overnight oats.  Of course, I topped with my the homemade chia peanut butter because this stuff is seriously addicting!  I also enjoyed my coffee, which consisted of almond milk and coffee.

After breakfast we decided to bake some cookies.  Part of the reason was that I need to finish up this peanut butter without actually sitting with the jar by myself and consuming the entire thing!  We made these  Chia Peanut Butter Cookies , but I made some modifications.

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cups rolled oats
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup  spelt flour all purpose or gluten-free flour
  • 1 1/2 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil butter, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup of brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup of coconut sugar
  • 3/4 cup peanut butter ( I use my homemade peanut butter)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup dark or semisweet chocolate chunks or chip

The results….

Breakfast really kept me full and around 11, after Sara and I had her story hour at the library I had an apple.

I had a lunch work meeting which I brought Sara too, so I didn’t really get to photograph lunch.  Actually, I didn’t really eat much at the meeting.  They had deli trays, which isn’t really my thing.  There were some veggies and salads which I munched on but it didn’t do the trick.  When we got home around 2:00 I chowed on this leftover bowl of Kabocha Squash tots from the night before!  AMAZING!

IMG_3145 Before we ran off to gymnastics class I prepped this for dinner!  I found it on Pinterest last week!

Hummus chicken was a HUGE hit!  The best part was that the veggies were part of the recipe and all done in one dish!  I added some quinoa on the side.  Awesome pinned dinner that I will for sure be making again!

So good and the best part is that you really can’t feel so guilty after eating them!  The recipe makeover was a huge success.

Do you have any new Pinterest discoveries?
