And so I make it and eat it..
1 cup soaked dates
1 cup of natural peanut butter
a can of chick peas
a cup of oats (more if you need to thicken it up)
a couple of tbsp of chia seeds (for nutrients and to lower the GI of this treat)
a dash of cinnnamon
and a few drops of water if your food processor can't cope with the above 3 ingredients.
Process... and process... and process....
I'm sure I'm not the only one who enjoys a good batch of cookie dough from time to stressful time. I can't say I'm exactly stressed but my life is certainly different. I'm a working mom, my handy fix it husband keeps taking on projects in our house (because now he is the stay at home parent) BUT... the casualties of his "handyness" is a persitant messy house. I'm also struggling with getting to the gym as much. When I was home with the kids full time it was easy to run out the door when Mark got home to workout, but now I'm suffering from severe mommy guilt when I leave the house in the evenings. And I have never been a morning person, but that is nothing but a big fat excuse and I will have to start working out in the AM before school. Wish me luck!
