Banana Breakfast Cookies
Okay, so I’m giving you all one day. One healthy(ish) recipe. Then I’m back to full sugar, you hear?
I hope you all had a wonderful New Year’s! I’ve been blissfully (trying) to ignore my computer. I’ve been semi-succssful too, and it’s been wonderful. But now…on with 2013!
I don’t make resolutions. I used to, then I hated myself in mid-January when I would inevitably find myself elbow deep in a box of Oreos, hating myself for my piggish ways. Now, I just make goals. Last year I set four, and I accomplished every one! This year my goals are two-fold: self and blog.
My blog goals for 2013 are:
*Learn about SEO.
*Finally get my blog design where I want it. This *may* include hiring help.
*Try to do more recipe development. I would love to have a few base recipes for my favorite treats that I can easily adapt for new versions.
*Make more stuff with crust…of course.
My personal goals for 2013 are:
*Run more, as my body allows. I’d love to do another 5k (or 2).
*Last year I conquered my rock climbing fear. This year, I want to conquer my fear of water and adrenaline. My hope is to go whitewater rafting this summer, just a short trip, preferably with Jordan so we can do a kiddie run and I’m not the only adult present.
*Stop beating myself up for things I cannot control…and stop sweating the small stuff. (Ha, this probably won’t happen.)
*Find some sort of service project that I can get involved in with Jordan. (I’d love ideas…it’s hard to find volunteer things for 8 year olds.)
Oh, and I have one more goal:
Tempt you with amazing sugar.
Enter these breakfast cookies…
Banana Breakfast Cookies
I mean, cookies for breakfast…how cool is that? I’ve seen these for years and always wanted to try making my own. I made these healthier by using coconut oil, peanut butter, and bananas instead of butter. I added flax, because supposedly that’s good for you, right? And chocolate chips…well. Anytime I can put chocolate in anything, that’s a good day.
And really, these are cookies for breakfast. It doesn’t get much better! I used these as a post-workout snack with my second cup of coffee. They held me past lunchtime in fullness. Jordan actually ate them for breakfast…and she liked them!
So…be healthy this 2013. Eat cookies for breakfast.
What are your goals for 2013?
