SuperCookie

Last night I made the Super-Charge Me! cookies from Eat, Drink, and Be Vegan by Dreena Burton.  I’ve seen these so often on Jenna’s blog and thought they would be a great thing to make and have on hand for a quick snack.  But of course half the time when I feel like baking I want something a little more “decadent” so I had put off making them for a while.  However I can now say that these are decadent in their own way!!  I thought they would be kind of like granola in a cookie form, and they sort of are, but they are soft and sweet and much tastier than granola would be if you just baked it into a mound :b  So I will definitely be making these again!!

 

This variety included raisins, chopped dried apricots and bananas, and peanut butter.  I looooove how you get the sweet flavor of the maple syrup and the peanut butter when you bite into these.  And they definitely are super-charging–I ate the equivalent of about 3 of them last night (between batter and a few bites of the baked ones) and my stomach was SO full.

  1. just wanted to say… your basil looks awesome.
    mine is new this year so its pretty tiny still. basil is one of my faves as well & i just made some basil ice cream. it was wickedly good.

  2. Katie–this is one of my favorite vegan “plus-sides” to tell to omnivores! Haha! Last week I was seriously considering rolling up my chocolate chip cookie dough in wax paper and selling it raw at the farmer’s market!

    selina–thanks! I love basil sooo much…how did you make that ice cream? Sounds like something I’d definitely be into!

  3. These cookies were soooo delicious! They tasted like these Martha Stewart cookies I used to make…only better and more healthy 🙂 I loved how you could taste the peanut butter and banana
