Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
Back to my addition of whipping up “healthy” recipes from Beach Body on Demand’s website, I decided to give the hubby the idea of incorporating a different type of cookie for his tradition of baking cookies while watching old Eurovision broadcasts. I was going to bake these cookies, but he already made plans to bake over the weekend so I added these cookies to his list. 😉
I guess using quinoa instead of flour is what makes these cookies “healthy”. While the quinoa kind of had me second-guessing the recipe, the cookies are actually very delicious. Of course, we (mainly, I) like to incorporate booze into our baking plans so the hubby added this nasty peanut-butter flavored whiskey to the cookies.
Here’s the thing with these “healthy” cookies. As some may know, I have been trying (and failing) to do Beachbody’s 21-Day Fix, which is more or less a portion control plan.
The program allows X number of these containers per day based on your weight and fitness level.
Here’s my “allowance” of food
LOL because ONLY one small cookie is equal to only ONE yellow (carbs) container. I was like damn, could I get at least two cookies for one yellow box? Maybe I should cut one cookie into 10 pieces have them throughout the day. 😉
Skrewball Peanut Butter Whiskey Story:
After having dinner and drinks with a few friends, we decided to keep the party going at one of our friend’s place. Unfortunately, he did not have much booze on hand at his place. No worries, I’ll just make a quick Drizzly order (Drizzly is like Instacart/UberEats for booze). While making my selections of vodka and gin, I saw the peanut butter whiskey, thought it was funny and showed our friends. However, I did not realize that I put a bottle in my damn cart. When the booze order arrived at the apt, I thought the liquor store made a mistake or gave us a free bottle (dumb, but I was already drunk). Looking at the bottle in the picture above, you can tell that we are not really feeling this whiskey because we have barely made a dent in the bottle.
Question of day:
Have any unconventional cookie recipes that you would like to share?
Interesting you brought that whiskey up because I saw it online and was wondering how it tastes. It sounds like you’re not a big fan.

I not a huge fan of artificially-flavored liquors, but a lot of people like. It. However, it’s useful for cooking/baking … I guess.
