Birthday Cookies

First off today is the LAST day to sign up for the jam exchange... so if you want in do it now!


Today I turn 29 for the first time! I'd also like to say Happy Birthday to my birthday twin Jeanne who turns 29 for the second time today! Why is it that 29 is the number people always joke they are? Hopefully this means it's going to be an awesome year!!

It was a friends birthday just this weekend and she had a rocking party to celebrate her ummm 9th anniversary of being 29 ;) I brought these cookies along for the ride. And oh it was a fun ride!! Hi to all the new friends I made, some of them who make very tasty cocktails ;)

Onto the bad for you cookies!!! Umm I mean... they are so healthy... whole grain... dark chocolate... almond butter... just ignore the stick of butter and cups of sugar will ya :)


Almond Butter No Bake Cookies
recipe by who the hell knows... someone made it up a billion years ago

1 stick butter (1/2 cup)
1 3/4 cup white sugar
2 Tbs dark cocoa powder
1/2 cup almond butter (I used maranatha YUM)
4 cups oats

In a sauce pan bring butter and sugar to a boil, boil for 1.5 minutes, remove from heat and stir in almond butter, vanilla, and oats. Plop tablespoonfuls onto wax paper and allow to cool.

chow your little heart out.

Happy B-day! And the cookies look delicious :)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Those cookies look amazing. Anything with almond butter . . . wow. Have to make these soon.

Hope you have a great birthday--but if any cookies are involved, I can't see how a birthday would be bad!! :-)

Happy Birthday Twin!
And nah. I'm 30. I'll embrace the age, just like I embrace my geeky side. Gotta to thine own self be true and all that.. (The only reason I'd stay 29 is so that we can be even more perfectly twins. The age is our only difference!)

Hope you have a *GREAT* birthday! And hopefully you get a good cake too! :)

(cookies look yum btw.)

Happy 29th!

I like that these are no bake. That`s the best when it`s scorching hot outside.

Happy 29th!!! :)

I love no bake cookies. My mom's don't include any type of nut butter, but I bet these would be awesome.

Have you ever tried no bake cookies w/oatmeal and cocoa? I have an old recipe from my Aunt Jewel that is pretty dang tasty, if you are interested.
