Well, I finally did it.
I finally made “Super Charge Me! Cookies”!
Jenna used to feed these cookies to me last summer in Tampa, and I’ve been dreaming about them ever since.
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!)
The “Super Charge Me! Cookies” recipe comes from one of my very favorite cookbooks: Eat, Drink, and Be Vegan.
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:
- Eat Drink & Be Vegan
- Veganomicon (essentially the vegan bible)
- Clean Food
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! 🙂
