Can I start off my post by showing you these stinking cute Mean Girls tanks that I saw at Target the other day? Seriously, how come it took them 11 years to come out with these shirts? Yes, Mean Girls is 11 years old. O.M.G.! I may or may not have bought “You Go Glen Coco” for workouts…

So today was just NOT my day. Last night I was up until around 5am (that’s been a regular thing recently) because I was covered in hives and Benadryl just wasn’t cutting it. Oh update: I’m not allergic to almonds. None of my food allergies have changed, so I made an appointment with my endocrinologist to have my thyroid levels and stuff checked to see if that has anything to do with it. It’s literally unbearable – and of course I can’t get in to see my doctor until after Easter! Ugh.

So back to today. Being as sleepy as I am, I made the glorious mistake of buying kidney beans instead of garbanzo beans at the grocery store. I got home, got out all of my ingredients for today’s recipe, and boom, I had somehow grabbed the wrong can at the grocery store. So back to the store I went. To top things off, the super epic “cookie dough bites” I dreamed of making out of those chickpeas that took two trips to the grocery store totally failed (see snapchat for photos @EatRabbitFood). So ya, today, not so much my day. I hope all of my bunnies are having a better Tuesday than I am! Luckily I turned my day around with this super sweet raw vegan cookie that I think is well deserved right meow. And you know what? You deserve this cookie too!

If you have any nut allergies, feel free to swap the flavors to nuts/seeds of your liking! Just stick with the same ratio of dry nuts and nut butter.

This can be an awesome little brekky cookie with a soy latte, or a pre or post workout snack! It has tons of protein, natural sugars, fiber, and plant-based fat to give you lots of energy and fuel your day or workouts!

Raw Peanut Butter Cookie {For One}
Serves 1

2 Tbsp almonds
2 Medjool dates
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 Tbsp peanut butter

1. Pulse almonds in a food processor or magic bullet until finely chopped.
2. Remove pits from dates, add dates and vanilla extract to the food processor and pulse until evenly chopped and combined.
3. Add the peanut butter to the food processor and pulse until well combined. The dough may be slightly crumbly but should stick together when pressed together.
4. Roll the dough into a ball and press into a cookie shape. Enjoy!

    OH NO!!! You’re allergic to almonds? I’m a little concerned because this recipe looks on point and it contains almonds. I’m not a big fan of dates but I’ll give this recipe a try because I trust you. Feel better soon!

      No no, NOT allergic to almonds! Never fear! I’m so glad because as I was talking about the other day, I was concerned my hives were possibly coming from almonds but it showed up negative in my allergy test! 🙂

    Thank goodness that test result came back negative. I volunteer with kids at the hospital I work at whom have food allergies and it reminds me of how blessed I am. I could not fathom being told I could no longer eat my favorite foods. Love this recipe, I work out after work and I am often so hungry by the time I get home, so I might try this as a pre-workout pick-me-up.

    I’ve been going through some health problems as well this month and it does take a toll. I hope you’re feeling better and figure out want’s going on soon.

    I just bought the Glen Coco shirt at my Target for workouts – it’s so soft! I cant wait to wear it when I’m feeling better. In the meantime I might have to make a few of these cookies. 🙂
