Traditional peanut butter cups are totally my jam. I love them. I love them too much. I wanted to make a paleo-friendly version and when I put these up on my Instagram last week, SO many of you asked for the recipe. I decided that they needed to be a permanent blog post because they were THAT good.
So it just occurred to me that my last three (including this one) posts were peanut/nut butter related. Sorry, not sorry. Buuuut if you are so not into nut butters, my sincerest apologies. Otherwise, no regrets. Sweet potato noodles with peanut sauce? Bomb. Creamy crunchy peanut butter bars? Bomb. These almond butter chia cookies? I have no words but I’m making hand motions and nodding my head YESSS. Really really good, you guys.
SUGAR!! Bahh there was a time in my life when sugar, more specifically white granulated sugar was the ingredient I sought out most. Need. Sugar. All the sugar. Desserts, with that sugar. Gimme. I can’t believe it’s been almost 6ish years since I’ve stopped using that traditional refined white sugar of my younger years!
Lemme see that cookie dough lemme lemme see that cookie dough. That’s how it goes, right?! In my mind, anyway 🙂 Because cookie dough is where it’s AT people. I may have a cookie dough problem. It’s fine, I can admit it. The first step is acknowledgement.
True story: I loathed anything jelly/jam related until I was in college. Then, one groggy morning after a night of er… college indulgence, I found myself brunching at a local diner with a packet of jam in my hand and a slice of toast in the other. I put the thinnest, nearly nonexistent layer across my toast. It snowballed.
