Long Named Cookies

Ahh, yes…back to those cookies I whipped up after traumatizing myself on Sunday. Mini Vegan Oatmeal Blueberry and Carob Chip Cookies. We’re gonna have to think of a shorter name than that because I could’ve eaten two cookies by the time I was done telling you their name.

These cookies are healthy and miniature size…so it’s OK if you eat more than one. If you’re really stressed like me you could eat 4. And cookie dough, of course 🙂 Life’s too short to not lick the spoon!

Mini Vegan Oatmeal Blueberry and Carob Chip Cookies

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup sucanat
  • 1/2 cup organic cinnamon applesauce
  • 1/2 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • Ener-G egg replacer for two eggs
  • 3/4 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups oats
  • 1/2 cup dried blueberries
  • 1/2 cup vegan carob chips

Directions

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Beat the first three ingredients, then add the flour, baking soda, and salt and beat again.

  • Scoop with a rounded tablespoon and add each cookie to greased baking sheet 2 inches apart.

THESE

ARE

THE

BOMB DOT COM

Since there is no added sugar, no oil and there is oatmeal and fruit I totally think this is breakfast acceptable. Am I right, or am I right?

Besides eating cookies for breakfast every morning I’ve been OBSESSED with having cereal. But not just one kind… I need combos. A little bit of everything 🙂

In this bowl: Cinnamon Cheerios, Kashi Honey Sunshine, Kashi Go Lean w/ more cinnamon & chia seeds with Unsweetened Original Almond Milk. De.Freaking.Licious.

Last night I came home to a surprise. My entire family was over for an impromptu BBQ. This is why I love summertime.

I ate my weight in pita chips before dinner… We had Red Hot Chili Pepper flavored by New York Style. I didn’t even know they made pita chips…but I can 96% guarantee I won’t buy another brand ever again. Oh.My.God. These taste like bbq fritos. I also dipped them in roasted red pepper hummus. I was a spicy pepper loving fool.

When it was time for dinner I wasn’t THAT hungry…But i needed a little more than pita chips to keep me full til the morning so I grabbed a thin sliced chicken breast, a piece of corn and a side salad (spinach, tomatoes, avocado).

My meal screams summmmmmmmmmmmmmmer. Yes, it talks.

I also skipped dessert and had a cup of watermelon instead

Fruit is NOT a dessert…unless its served in something warm… with a dollop of ice cream. And that’s final.

See ya tomorrow 🙂

QUESTIONS: Do you consider fruit as dessert? Can you think of another name for the Mini Vegan Oatmeal Blueberry and Carob Chip cookies?? Please and Thank you.

WIAW

Happy Wednesday!! I miss blogging OH so much. I never realized how much time I spent reading/writing until I could no longer use my computer… Now i’ve been sucked into trashy reality tv. But, I’m not complaining. It makes me feel so normal and down to earth. Not that I ever thought I was weird…

Anyways. It’s that time of the week again!! What I ate Wednesday 🙂 If you haven’t joined in the fun…Do so now and link up to Jenn’s post!

Here’s the breakdown:

Wow, I really got my fruit in for the day didn’t i?? During the Summer I usually eat A LOT of fresh fruit. I don’t hate it. I also had a sugar free jello for dessert… Because my day is NOT complete without a lil sumptin sumptin.

Workout consisted of an hour of bootcamp that kicked off at 5:45 am followed by 10 minutes on the arc trainer! I’ve been LOVING my morning workouts. Every time I hear my alarm go off at 5am I am almost (dare I say) excited to get my workout on. It feels good to accomplish a workout by 7am.  Today we worked on a lot of strength training – my arms and abs are SO weak. I need to pay more attention to them!

Outfit:

  • Dress: Navy One shoulder – Forever 21 ($10)
  • Belt: Francescas Closet (came with a dress)
  • Flip Flops: Rainbows. So comfortable($48)
  • Bracelet: Francescas Closet ($18)
  • Earrings: White House Black Market ($28)
  • Hair pin: J Crew ($15)

Close up of the bracelet and earrings:

Unfortunately my little peanut Maddie fell on Saturday and busted up her face pretttty badly. 

So we’ve been keeping ourselves inside to prevent her scab from scarring… Can you guess what we did??

Bowling! They actually did pretty well… Averaging a score of 80 for Maya (5 years old) and 60 for Maddie (2 years old). We also played arcade games, won some super lame cheap prizes, and enjoyed the bowling alley to ourselves with a dance party or two.

My mom has been kind enough to let me use her computer until I move so I should be posting a lot more! Enjoy your night 🙂

QUESTIONS: Do you feel lost without your computer? I clearly depend on technology a wee bit too much.
