New Recipe and Wind Down Wednesday!

My favorites for this week!

1. I’ve officially completed my 200-hour yoga teacher training and my husband was sweet enough to surprise me with a beautiful bracelet with a Peace sign charm and a Hamsa hand evil eye charm! He knows me too well ❤

2. My new favorite crowd pleaser recipe:

Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter cookies (Gluten Free & Optional Vegan) – courtesy of Averie Cooks

20130225_171459

What you need:

1/4 c white sugar

1/4 c brown sugar, packed

1 c peanut butter (I used Skippy Natural Creamy with Honey)

1 egg (replace real egg by combining 1 tbsp ground flax seeds + 3 tbsp warm water in a small bowl and stirring.  Allow a “jelly” to form after a few minutes and use this as your “egg”)

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (make sure they chocolate chips say gluten-free on the bag, some “natural ingredients “can contain gluten)

Stirring by hand with a spoon, combine all ingredients.

Directions:

~After you completely stir all of the ingredients together in a bowl scoop one inch rolled balls on to a greased baking sheet. Place each ball of dough a good distance away from each other because they do tend to spread just a little. Press with a fork making a grid-like design and sprinkle each cookie with just a tad of brown sugar and white sugar.

~Bake the cookies until golden brown (about 10 minutes). Watch them carefully! They can burn quickly.

~Enjoy! They’ll be a huge hit with everyone!
