Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

I am a broken record.
My voice, lost in the wind.
My words must simply sound like white noise
Amongst the playing and screaming I hear.

I am a tired record.
My requests, playing on repeat.
But it’s not just my voice that they’re ignoring,
It’s me that they fail to see.

I am a mother record.
My heart, full of love.
Each day full of much joy and endless frustration
As we navigate this challenging path.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

These Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies are yet another opportunity to trick your kids these school holidays (see this cake and this ice cream for other chances to create veggie espionage!). Made with sweet potato these delicious cookies will ensure that your kids are in therapy for many years to come with parental trust issues.

I have used Sweet Potato in these cookies recently (and another I’ll share with you soon) and love to use it in place of butter. It does tend to make the Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies are more cakey than crispy but these ones do hold up well on the firm scale. These Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies were inspired by these ones.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

If you can’t use peanut butter then I’m sure these would taste amazing with Almond Butter as well. Let me know if you try it! You could also try mashed ripe Banana if you prefer to Sweet Potato or even Pumpkin, just make sure it’s not too watery.

Like most of my cookie recipes I have tried to make the Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies as simple as possible to make. I like to use my blender as it churns all the ingredients together so there’s no evidence of any vegetable goodness; just don’t blend it until it turns into mush as the cookies won’t form a nice shape. If you do; don’t worry. Pop the dough in the fridge for 10 minutes to allow the coconut oil to harden a little to give the cookies a better shape.

We had to buy a new vacuum cleaner today. It wasn’t because we wanted to, but more out of not wanting to live in a knee high sea of dog hair, leaves and My Little Pony stickers. Our many efforts to prolong our Vacuums life, including duct tape and shonky parts bought online, had finallyContinue Reading

Are you a Liz Lemon or a Leslie Knope? At first glance it appears to be a simple choice; are you an accident prone goof ball or an A type over achiever, but look closer and maybe Liz and Leslie have more in common than it first appears. Liz Lemon is the dag in allContinue Reading

I’m not a fan ofContinue Reading
