Written while pretending to care about Selection Sunday.
Cookies! For breakfast, lunch and dinner. Or maybe just a snack?
I was eating one of these at work the other day as my boss walked by and asked what kind I had made. After rattling the name ‘peanut butter banana oatmeal cookies’ to her, she gave me a sideways look saying it was way too many flavors for her to process.
I mean, I guess that does sound like a lot of flavors at first. Especially when you count the fact I added chocolate chips to the mix too. But honestly, they’re flavors that go together well, so it’s pretty much legit in my book! Is it sort of like a healthier monster cookie? Maybe. It’s a recipe dump of a lot of things. But really they’re just delicious.
These cookies were introduced a while back with my first recipe video…which was about a month ago now. I had the best of intentions to shoot more video in the last month, but ya know, it’s a little more work and planning than I can prep myself for these days! 🙂 At 33 weeks pregnant I am a little more inclined to let laziness takeover on the weekends while I still can. Harmless, right? At least I’m still managing to get some chores and laundry done on the weekends. But that’s only because I have about 5 shirts that fit right now and not wearing clothes to work would be a bit awkward for everyone.
It’s also getting awkward having all my coworker ask when I’m going to bring food for them to the office. Apparently my Instagram feed is making everyone jealous. I do cook a lot on the weekends, but I think they forget I’m eating for two. I’m not always willing to share!
This cookie recipe does make 9 cookies though. Maybe I’ll feel generous next time. Or maybe not.
