I hope this recipe finds you all well. It is truly strange times we are living in and I pray that everyone is coping to the best of their ability. This is a time when it’s important to continue as normal of a routine as possible. If you are unable to go to work right now, get up and create a new routine for you and your family at home.
Remember to move your body for 30 minutes every day. Whether it be walking, doing laundry, working out, cleaning your house. Whatever it is move your body today and every day.
I have really kept the same routine since this all started and I believe it has helped not only myself but the morale of my family too. They know what to expect and what each day will bring. And as boring as that sounds, it’s also comforting.
We have started baking more (not that we didn’t before) but now it seems we are in the kitchen several times a day coming up with something. Yesterday morning I really wanted a cookie, and I knew I wanted it to be a peanut butter cookie. I also knew I didn’t want to spend forever in the kitchen making peanut butter cookies, because after all, Faith is still continuing her normal homeschool and Grace now has school work here to do about 3 hours a day at least. So this super simple recipe was done within 30 minutes! Literally from start to finish!
- 1 cup peanut butter
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup Monkfruit natural sugar (you could use regular sugar)
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine all ingredients together in a mixer bowl with a paddle attachment.
- Using a scoop. Scoop out batter onto a sheet pan lined in parchment paper.
- Press flat with a fork to create those cute little lines in the cookie!
- Bake for 10-13 minutes.
- Let cool and serve!
That’s it! Nothing more than that. Let cool and eat. Store in an air tight container for a few days.
Like I said super easy to make with your kids!
Enjoy and stay well.
