I was inspired by Caitlin‘s Bake Sale at the Healthy Living Summit last week to bake up a batch of my own cookies.
I am in not way shape or form a baker, but every once in a while the mood does strike.
After browsing a few recipe ideas I decided to take advantage of the Barney Butter Oatmeal Cookie recipe card that came in my swag bag.
The recipe can also be found online here.
A couple changes I made
- Halved the recipe
- Whole Wheat Flour instead of Oat Flour
- Left out the Almond Extract
- Only used a small handful of chocolate chips and craisins
Another swag bag find helped me mix the batter.
Love my Oikos spatula!
While the cookies were baking I started piecing together a fun dinner as well.
I picked up these Nasoya wraps with a coupon I got at the summit and decided to make some ravioli with them. Well atleast my version of ravioli. 😉
For the filling I combined:
- Mashed up Chickpeas
All filled up.
I gave up trying to make them look like actual ravioli and just went with the haphazard squished look.
Unfortunately my haphazardness bombed in the pan. I tried to heat them up with some red sauce, but they just fell apart.
They were still really good though! The mozzarella in the middle heated up and became all gooey. I’m not even a big pasta lover and i loved this delish. I think it worked better having them fall apart. 🙂
On the side I made a massage kale salad with tomatoes and mushrooms.
I’m happy to say Derek had the kale salad too and finished his plate. Major brownie points!
For dessert you know there were cookies!!
These came out great! Perfectly crumbly and almond buttery. I had one of the cookies and split the other with Derek.
Time to relax and cuddle on the couch. Hopefully there’s something good on tv.
