Tonight called for something sweet. . . I haven’t baked anything in about a month, I think my kids are feeling deprived! So, tonight I made cookies. Yum-o.
I used Elana’s original recipe. In it, she notes that Bob’s Red Mill Almond Flour won’t work. Well, that’s what I used because it’s what I had opened (my new order from Honeyville arrived today, yay!). I subbed maple for agave and I added about 3 Tbs of coconut flour because the batter looked a bit too moist. Bake time was a total of 13 minutes and they turned out AMAZING. I kid you not. Maple-y sweet deliciousness!
This is our “snack” counter. It includes a giant bowl of fresh fruit, dried fruit & fruit leathers, and our trail mix station. We go through those almonds faster than anything! The kids are gobbling up a pound every two days. Even with 5 kids, I feel this is excessive so I may have to swap them out for a while. Today, my youngest took two “trail mixes” in her lunch. . . one was coconut and raisins, the other coconut & sunflower seeds. I’m not sure why she didn’t just mix it all together. . .
And our most recent baby picture. Look at that sweet little face. Baby is 11.2 weeks here… we could see her kicking and moving all over.
