Super Charge Me! Cookies

Well, I finally did it.

022

I finally made “Super Charge Me! Cookies”!

004

Jenna used to feed these cookies to me last summer in Tampa, and I’ve been dreaming about them ever since.

008

But I never had spelt flour on hand! Spelt flour made me kind of nervous. I didn’t know what it was and it sounded super healthy and scary.

That is… until one of the farmers on the Stonyfield Blogger Barnstorming Tour gave us some! :)

And then I saw that spelt flour is not scary at all — it’s just like normal flour but more nutritious and delicious! (For more info on spelt — check out this post!)

013

The “Super Charge Me! Cookies” recipe comes from one of my very favorite cookbooks: Eat, Drink, and Be Vegan.

001

I get asked a lot about my favorite cookbooks, but to be honest, I usually prefer to create my own recipes! The exceptions? I own three cookbooks:

All three cookbooks rock my world. Clearly I’m far from vegan, so don’t be scared off by the first two since they’re vegan. It’s fun to try something different! All the recipes in these books are majorly delicious, really creative, AND very healthy — not to mention super simple. Awesome! If you don’t own these cookbooks, please go buy them. You will not regret it. And no, no one is paying me to write about these cookbooks. I’m just obsessed with them.

My work here is done. :)

Why did I make these? Today is Matt’s birthday! (Remember him? I don’t blog about him much apparently!) It’s a gorgeous day and we are off on a secret adventure in a few minutes. I told him to “wear hiking clothes and your ankle braces” (he has ankle issues from years of soccer). I think he’s scared to see what I have up my sleeve ;) Hehe

Check back tomorrow for a recap of our adventures! :)

    I’ve been dying to make those cookies! They look tasty. :-)

    I have Veganomicon, but have not made anything from it yet… many of my vegan recipes I make up, from old recipes I made when I wasn’t vegan… I love veganizing!

    I really want Eat Drink & Be Vegan, though… it looks good, and if there are recipes like this in it I know I’d use it !

    :) these look fabulous !

    Those look fantastic! I’ve been meaning to try spelt flour for some time. I need to get on it! Clean Food is one of my fave cookbooks as well. Mmmm.

    ED&BV is definitely my favorite cookbook. And, the supercharge me cookies are amazing. One time I saved a little extra dough and used it as an oatmeal topping – AH-MAZ-ZING!!

  6. 6

    I make these all of the time … probably a little too frequently if you know what I’m saying. Definitely made them w/ wheat flour and that works too.

  7. 7

    Those look really yummy! Have a great weekend with Matt!

    Love all of your pics. The cookies look great! Happy birthday to Matt! :-)

    It’s so fun to experiment with vegan food. I feel like I can get kind of wild and indulgent because vegan cooking is so focused on clean, plant-based ingredients! I’m not willing to give up my seafood and my Parmesan cheese, but dabbling works great for me.

    What a fun post! Glad to hear that spelt flour is not scary. And take it easy on Matt… :-) Look forward to a full report!

    I’ve heard way too many things about these cookies to not have had them yet!! They look amazing. Spelt flour is my favorite flour these days. I love it!

    I’ve made these cookies numerous times and they are always a hit. Plus you can get creative and add or subtract different additives like coconut to change the flavor. So much fun!
