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.
