Delicious and healthy Peanut Butter & Choc Chip Oatmeal Cookies that are gluten free, packed with protein and come with a vegan option.
I am seriously slacking a little on the baking & blogging side lately. My mind has been filled with confusion about life decisions. I seem to find myself here often, not knowing what is ahead of me and what I want my life to look like. I often think I should give up the way my life is and just go ahead and get a typical 9-5 office job. Perhaps I’m a little unrealistic when it comes to that life. I often think it would be fun to make jokes with colleagues or wear fancy clothes everyday. But then I think of the fact that I would be sitting in an office all day. Working for someone else and only getting 15 days of holiday a year. That is when I throw myself back into blogging and working towards the life I want. A life where I can express my creativity in the things I want and believe in. A life where if I needed a few days off, I could take it. Pretty much just a life filled with cookies and smoothies ;).
So with that being said. The first thing I did to get myself motivated again was to bake. Baking always seems to ground me. You don’t have to think about anything else other than the task at hand. I love that. I baked a whole bunch of things in one day. But the first thing I made was these scrumptious Peanut Butter & Choc Chip Oatmeal Cookies. They are the perfect combination of a little bit healthy, a little bit decadent and a whole lot of chewy.
These Peanut Butter & Choc Chip Oatmeal Cookies are super quick and easy to make, but they do need to chill in the fridge for at least 2 hours otherwise they tend to spread and end up a little flat (but still delicious). What is awesome about them is that you could make the batter and freeze it. Then you could literally whip out the batter at any time and within a few minutes you could have yummy fresh cookies. Sounds good right?
