This delicious flourless peanut butter cookie for one is a higher protein treat made with a minimal amount of sugar - No grains or oil needed!
Anyone else wear a mouth guard?
With all of the stresses of this pregnancy, I began grinding my teeth at night pretty early on. Not fun.
It actually freaks me out a bit to be involuntarily doing things in my sleep, especially things that cause pain. Oh yeah, teeth grinding is no joke, and from my dentist's reaction, I'm giving it some real effort.
Jaw pain, tooth pain, headaches, all kinds of enjoyable stuff.
So, I got a mouth guard, making my whole sleeping experience even less fun than it previously was.
A mouth guard is basically a flexible, silicone-like cover for the entire bottom row of my teeth that makes me drool and dream of Rachael Ray feeding me tiny, colorful kitchen spatulas.
A Man-Pleasing Treat!
Speaking of kitchen spatulas, how's about a cookie...which you need a spatula for to scrape the bowl of all its lickable goodness?... Yes, that works.
I've been making this for a few weeks now, mainly for the hubs.
He LOVES this treat! I was trying to create something higher in protein and without grains of any kind for him in an attempt to cater to his allergies. This fit the bill and he asks for it frequently.
It has a rich, peanut butter-y taste and a good (almost) fudgy texture that is lightly sweetened with a combination of coconut sugar and stevia.
I also like to add in dashes of cinnamon and vanilla for flavor.
My husband likes to put this in the freezer after it's done baking for about 20-30 minutes, which enhances the overall texture and 'fudge' factor, so take note!
