Cora happily greeted me, but I think it's just because she knows I give her peanut butter (her favorite). I had a fairly large box that I put all my peanut butters and almond butters in to take home over break and somehow no matter where I put it she always finds it and starts licking it. She likes peanut butter almost as much as I do ;)
Thursday morning I was up bright and early to be at the gym when they opened so I could squeeze in a workout before I had to go and run lines. It ended up being one of my best workouts in a while despite me being exhausted. My post workout snack while running lines was a Quest S'mores bar. HOLY GUACAMOLE IT'S THE BEST FLAVOR EVER! I may have gone a tad overboard when Quest had their cyber Monday sale- I got five boxes (In all fairness not all of them were mine, just most) :)
Seriously though the s'mores tops the cookies and cream as my favorite, you need to try it! I mean how can you say no to all those delicious s'mores chunks?!
Thursday night I made a double batch of my flourless peanut butter banana muffins for my brother. My brother is coming home from California for Christmas and he requested a batch of flourless peanut butter banana muffins because they are his favorite. I made them, let them cool and stuck them in the freezer for when he arrives.
Yesterday afternoon before I had to get ready and leave for the play I made myself a nice afternoon snack. I generally don't eat anything between lunch and dinner because I want to be hungry for dinner- especially if it's something good! Spontaneously I decided to make myself a mug cake. I'm not a mug cake kinda gal, but this one was really good. It's gluten free and high in fiber!
High Fiber Chocolate Mug Cake
- 2 tablespoons high fiber coconut flour
- 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
- 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 egg
- 1/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
- 1 tablespoon organic honey (or maple syrup)
- a few enjoy life chocolate chips sprinkled on top
Thoroughly combine all ingredients in the mug until dough forms.
Microwave on high for 2 minutes and 45 seconds. Check to see if it is done. Insert a toothpick or prong of a fork, if it comes out clean it's done. If it's not microwave it for an additional 15 seconds and check again.
Top with whipped cream or any of your favorite toppings, enjoy!
