Cookie Monster

Hi there! How was your Saturday?

I discovered (and ordered immediately) Teecino this afternoon! Apparently it has the flavor of coffee but without the caffeine or acidity and is in a little tea bag so you can make it one cup at a time. I haven’t tried it yet but I’ll be curious to see how the flavor is. I’m a big fan of strong coffee so we’ll have to see how this holds up.
 A storm was rolling in earlier which ruled out the beach trip I was daydreaming about…
… so I took myself to Publix for a few ingredients to make a recent Pinterest find: No-Bake Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites from right over here (egg-less, so you can eat them almost guilt-free… but there’s still a stick of butter in there so be sure to hold on to that mental image ;))!
What you need:
1/3 c low fat plain Greek yogurt
1 stick of butter
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 c brown sugar
1/3 c white sugar
2 t vanilla extract
1/2 c chocolate chips (or peanut butter chips or both if you’re a bad bad girl)
1/2 t salt
1/2 t baking soda

Melt butter on the stove over low heat. Mix melted butter and both sugars in bowl. Add yogurt and vanilla and mix to combine. Separate bowl: combine flour, salt, and baking soda. Add flour mixture to buttery goodness. Fold in chocolate chips. Spoon onto a cookie sheet and freeze for about 30 minutes, then eat. Eat one at a time at a very reasonable pace 😉
