These flourless peanut butter chocolate chip cookies have been a bit of a revelation around here lately.
It all started with these. After making loads of almond butter for my tutorial, I got it into my head that I wanted to make cookies with some of the almond butter spoils. So I found this recipe from Sally, and the result was a hit.
After that, it wasn’t long before I took the flourless action on over to peanut butter town.
Yep, more protein! In last Wednesday’s post, I talked about my recent decision to start including extra protein wherever I can think to add it. So, naturally, more of the recipes I share here are going to have more protein in them while I see how this new dietary tweak goes. I hope that’s cool with you!
When I decided to start packing more protein into my recipes, naturally, smoothies were one of the first things to come to mind. I mean, I’m already on a smoothie kick. So: smoothie kick, meet protein kick. And then hello, Peanut Butter Protein Power Smoothie.
Every harmonious household needs a few good dessert recipes, right?! And the very best thing about dessert? It’s vegetarian. Perfect for the mixed veggie/carnie kitchen. Nary a meat-eater complains about the lack of meat when a scrumptious dessert is placed before him or her.
Like this one, for instance. It’s a banana sheet cake packed with tiny little Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup minis. And then topped with an amazing peanut butter cream cheese frosting. And it’s delicious.
If you’re looking for a super-easy, crowd-pleasing holiday treat, look no further.
With only five ingredients (six if you add the sprinkles), Milk Chocolate Peanut Butter Balls are a simple, easy goodie that come together in no time at all and will undoubtedly disappear equally quickly. But don’t worry; smiles (and quite possibly recipe requests) will be left behind.
I’d describe how they taste, but it’s probably pretty obvious. Sweet, rich and that delicious, magical combination of peanut butter and chocolate. In other words: Win!
I’m still relatively new to this blog thing. So I’m still learning the ins, the outs, the wonderful surprises, the pitfalls.
One interesting and unexpected result of all this? The expectations, man! Nowadays, friends and family are counting on some seriously good things out of my kitchen. Which, I admit, is actually kind of cool… as long as I can deliver, that is. Pressure!
