Thoughts Before Baking:

So I got this book years ago as a gift and I haven’t made that many items out of it. I made a few things, which I would make over and over. As I was looking at my cookbooks, I finally decided to make something different, Rice Krispies Cookies

Dark Choco Almond Butter Cookies

Thoughts before baking:

So my cubicle at work was the kind of placeholder for objects, until I was hired. Subsequently I have a broken printer, an out of date phone, and a ton of boxes throughout the space. One day I was going through the boxes, looking for the perfect one to store some things and I found this recipe on a Vitacost box. They sounded good and are gluten-free, dairy-free, and low in calories. So I thought, let’s make them!

Thoughts after baking:

They were delicious!

I thought they tasted great and ate a bunch. My niece didn’t like them as she thought they weren’t sweet enough and the texture of the almond butter was strange, but I loved them. I will definitely be making these in the future.
