Yayy for it being Friday. I don’t know about you but this week has dragged for me. I didn’t sleep at all Wednesday night either. Maybe because I had a gallon of coffee during the day, or just had my test the next day, but I was just sitting in bed all night til I finally decided to get up and study at 4 am. I had my date with A last night. I don’t know what to think of it to tell you the truth. He’s such a sweetheart and everything but since he’s so shy and then I was just straight up awkward I don’t know how to really judge it. I think I am the type who has to say and do some weird stuff right off the bat so he knows my personality but I was to chicken to do any of that last night. Maybe next time if I decide to go out again I need to go to a better place, love the movies but can’t really talk much.. Or I need a few glasses of wine in me so I can let loose 😉
Onto food, I made these delicious cookies when I was on my little baking spree and they instantly became a new favorite. They really taste like a cinnamon roll in cookie form. Cookie form, they are not these so don’t expect that lol.
Cinnamon Roll Cookies
1/4 cup ground flax (with 1/4 cup water)*
1/4 cup almonds
1.5 cups of date
1 tbs cinnamon
¼ cup butter**
2 tbs raw sugar (i used stevia and i liked it better)
2 cups oats
2 tbs vanilla protein powder
1 tbs almond milk
stevia to taste***
Preheat oven to 400. Mix the ground flax with the water and set aside to thicken up. Place the almonds in a food processor or high speed blender until a flour consistency. Add the rest of the ingredients and blend well. Place in little balls on a baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes or until bottom is golden. Remove and let cool completely. Mix the ingredients together for the frosting and swirl it around on the cookies. (I put the icing in a ziploc and cut of the zip and swirled it on.) Makes 20 cookies.
*instead of the flax egg you can use 1/2 cup eggs as a substitute.
**i have tried coconut oil in place of the butter and it’s good but doesn’t give it as a cinnamon bun taste. Def good though!
***i used a few drops of stevia but you can use powdered sugar just add more milk.
I am off to the gym. Okay I lied I want to go to the gym but I am still in my pajamas and my bed couch is looking comfy. Yesterday I went to the gym after class and knew I shouldn’t have because I was just tired I ran for 10 minutes and maybe did 5 bicep curls and gave up. lol
What makes me happy: mexican night tonight, yumyum so excited!
What are you up to this weekend?
Who else pulled all nighters and took days to get back to feeling normal? Hate it!
