Hoppy Fridayyyyy my little bun buns!
A few of you have asked me for more before and after photos because they help you to stay motivated and on track. I searched my computes for quite some time to find old photos, but noticed that I don’t have too many full body pictures of myself. I was usually very covered up or couldn’t stand photos of myself, so I deleted them. Anyways here is another before and after to show you guys what rabbit food can do for your body! I hope that this can inspire you guys to eat more rabbit food!
So last week I said that I was going to go prop shopping for my kitchen/blog photos. That semi-happened, but I literally cannot get away from black and white props! It’s my fav! The Coco Chanel kitchen lives on!
I love love love dessert. I get my sweet tooth from my mom, who can literally eat candy and cookies like there’s no tomorrow and maintain her petite frame. I wasn’t blessed with that same gene, but man I love me some sugaaaa! I’m the kind of person that cannot live without dessert or a little something sweet every day. Instead of traditional store bought cookies loaded with oil, salt, refined sugar, and bad saturated fats (not to mention the totally addictive-cannot-stop-eating-one-after-the-other feeling that comes along with them!), I took to my kitchen to give an old fav a healthy spin! I wanted to make a super clean, healthy, peanut butter cookie that can be enjoyed with coffee and good conversation. Something that feels indulgent and naughty, but is actually quite filling and good for you!
Believe it or not, this recipe only calls for 7 ingredients that you probably have in your kitchen already!
Single Serving PB Cookie
1 Tbsp almond flour
1 Tbsp coconut flour
1 Tbsp creamy peanut butter
1 Tbsp unsweetened almond milk
1/2 Tbsp egg whites
1/2 tbsp chocolate chips (or 1 tsp mini)
1 packet stevia
Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix until well combined. Spread the dough onto a microwave safe plate and flatten into a cookie shape. microwave for 1:15-1:30 minutes.

Aw, I was excited for this, but I have no idea where I would find coconut or almond flour in my tiny town 🙁

Almond flour is really easy to make! Just grind almonds in a blender until they’re super fine 🙂 I’m not sure if coconut flour can be made like that though. I wonder if this would work with 2 Tbsp almond flour instead of coconut? Hmmm I need to give it a try!

Well good to know about the almond flour anyway!

Could you sub another nut butter for peanut butter?

I’ve only tried this recipe with peanut butter but I’m sure another but butter would work as well!

I really love the composition of your photos! So elegant 🙂
And this cookie looks too easy! I’ll try it the next time I’m craving a cookie, which is like always 😉

Wow! That looks super delicious… When I’m craving cookies I usually eat Lucy’s Gluten-free, Vegan Chocolate Chip cookies. They are so tasty and they’re great for people with (or without) food allergies, but I love that this recipe has no sugar added! Anyways, you look so great!! Congrats on your transformation… it must feel great to see the before and after! Love it <3

I tried tried tried this with 2 tbs almond flour and omitted the coconut flour. It was great. The texture was a little lighter and it needed less time in the microwave.
CatherineSeptember 17, 2013 at 3:37 pm (10 years ago)
Oh my gosh that’s awesome!!! Thanks for letting me know 🙂 xo
CristaSeptember 17, 2013 at 6:28 am (10 years ago)

I love single serving recipes! Prevents me from eating too many cookies 😉
I love the Chanel with the cookie 🙂

I made one (I love that it is a one cookie recipe) with almond butter this afternoon and it was more of a biscotti consistency. Still tasty and it satisfied by sweet tooth. thanks for sharing!

what approximate measurement is a packet of stevia? I’m in Australia and my stevia packet is about 500 grams 🙂

Any recommendations for how long and at what temperature to cook this at? I don’t have a microwave! Thanks!

Can we use flax seeds instead of egg whites?
