I had a very productive evening. I recut and actually completed this Wolf Blanket for my husband. Just in time too as it is suppose to get colder….again.

I made Garbanzo Bean  soup this evening. It taste just like hummus. I am completely hooked. This could possibly bee my go to meal for when My Love is not home on Fridays. I had this made in just a half hour.
I also started a comfort pillow to give as a gift. Now I just need to give flaxseed to fill it so I can finish it up. I opted for flax seed as it holds heat longer than grain and will not give off a cooked grain odor after multiple uses.
Be good to yourself and enjoy life!

Last week I was Googling  and came across

https://www.google.com/search?q=Super+Secret+Cookie+Dough&rlz=1C1EODB_enUS532US532&oq=Super+Secret+Cookie+Dough&aqs=chrome..69i57j69i60j69i61.6905j0j7&sourceid=chrome&espv=210&es_sm=93&ie=UTF-8

Wow was I surprised on how much I liked it…in fact I made it twice.

Today I decided to create my own and here is the result of that fun time in the kitchen today:

1 can Garbanzo beans

2 packets of Justin’s Almond Butter

1/8 teaspoon  Sea Salt

3 Tablespoons Agave

1/2 teaspoon Pure Almond Extract         * Next time I would reduce to 1/4 teaspoon

1 1/2 tsp Pure Vanilla                             * Next time I would increase to 1 3/4 teaspoon

1 Tablespoon Vanilla Almond Milk

1/3 Cup Chocolate Chunks

Image

Remove skins from the beans

Image

Put them in food processor and pulse until fine in texture

Image

add all remaining ingredients  minus the chocolate chunks into food processor

Image

Pulse until well blended

Image

Transfer to a bowl and mix in the chocolate chunks (more or less to taste)

After I put this in the fridge to chill for an hour I made a cup of tea. In fact it is the tea that helped inspire this recipe. It is one of my top favorite teas. I got the remainder of my  inspiration from a friend that thought almond butter would be a great addition.

Almond Ode To Joy Tea

Nothing left to do but pour a spot of tea and try my cookie dough…….I was pleasantly happy as it is reminiscent of an Almond Danish Ring. I will certainly make this again!!!
