One reason we should pray: it is because God can do more in a second than what we can do for ourselves in a lifetime
I am doing happy dance right now
Good news ya’ alll!!
I weighed myself and I lost another four pounds!!!! Yipeeeeeeeee! with a happy dance. Gosh, I worked so hard for this and I am just glad that finally, the hard work is showing good results. I am surprised that despite my effort for the last 6 months, I did not really notice significant weight loss until I was in my third month of exercising and eating well. I now fit in my old jeans. I am so excited!
To celebrate this progress, I am going to eat cookies! You heard me right. I am going to eat cookies. Not a whole lot, but still cookies. I deserve to eat them.
I am not a very big fan of cookies because I heard they contain tons of calories. So I eat Oreo cookies once in a while. I try not to bring in any cookies in my house as much as I could. This year for example, I only bought one pack of cookies only this month. For that one time opportunity, I bought Oreo cookies because I loved that cookie so much!
It has been two weeks now and those Oreo cookies were long gone, and I cannot buy anymore. So, I am making my own version of Oreo cookies. I am making a cookie that does not make me feel guilty of cooking and eating it. Check also the other healthy desserts here,here and here
This is a vegan kind. Instead of the usual butter, I used coconut butter. Coconut butter contains healthier fat compared to that butter we usually used for cookies. I used Spelt Flour and agave nectar to sweeten it. Though you may get the discourage of the coconut butter’s and Spelt Flour’s price, I tell you, this recipe yielded lots of cookies and you can use this particular ingredients for incoming recipes I am going to use. So do not lose heart.
I got this recipe from here and I decided to try this. It turned out great . Although it does not have the Oreo logo at the front but this surely is pretty close to Oreo taste. I am not sure if I can confidently say it taste like Oreo, but I can assure you it is a good cookie. When I made this, the mixture was crumbly. I got worried how I will flatten it onto the surface. It was crumbly that it felt like it was not gonna form a circle form, but I stuck to it and I used a parchment paper so that the dough will not stick to the rolling pin. Also, the filling was difficult to spread with the use of spoon so I used my finger/hand to spread the filling. I just thought it will not break the cookie dough when you do this.
