How are you? How's the week going? I'm doing a 'reset' with Daniela Kende of Color Me Complete this week, and traveling to San Francisco, will keep you posted on both!
This past weekend I had my best friends wedding in Cincinnati, and it was AMAZING.
The best, I mean all of the feels. She was a f'ing STUNNER for real (you can see on my IG @hundredbloga). I'll spare you all the details but, to the bridal suite on Sunday I brought a batch of cookies I made that Friday for the bridesmaids.
When I walked in Kaitlin, (the bride) was like "what the fuck is that?"
Because she knows I NEVER BAKE OR COOK.
I mean what can I say. I was home for a few days and feeling all sorts of domestic, and decided to make up and bake some pumpkin themed cookies just for her special day.
Guys, everyone LOVED THEM.
Yes I will brag about this.
Seriously I got major props from everyone, and they asked if I would share, so I thought I'd also share with you!
Keep in mind, these are unfortunately not vegan :( so FYI on that vegan babes. Obviously I try to keep as much of what I do vegan, but sometimes you need a damn cookie, ya know?
My I never f'ing bake Pumpkin Dark Chocolate Cookies
2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cup flaxseed
1 teaspoon of baking soda
3/4 teaspoon of baking powder
1 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice
1/2 teaspoon of salt
3/4 cup of coconut sugar (or regular if you'd like)
3/4 cup of brown sugar
1/2 cup or organic pumpkin
1 egg (or you can do a date or applesauce!)
1 tbsp of vanilla
Dark chocolate chips to taste (I usually do a fist full)
The reason I love these so much is because they have:
Whole wheat flour: Way better than normal flour by health standards and taste standards
Flax Seeds: High in omega 3 essential fatty acids and fiber
Coconut sugar (and they're pretty low sugar for cookies are concerned): Cotains fiber and inulin which helps to slow glucose absorption
Dark chocolate: High in antioxidents, high in minerals and a good source of fiber
Pumpkin: High in fiber, vitamin A, reduces LDL cholesterol, LOADS of potassium
All pumpkin everything right babes? HAPPY FALL MY LOVES.
Let me know if you make em, and my vegan babes, can I make these vegan? LET ME KNOW.
