Silas and I made two new Trim Healthy Mama recipes tonight (I subbed half and half for the almond milk because I was all out of almond or coconut milk).
First up was this Raw Cookie Dough recipe. It was incredible easy to make and made just the perfect amount.
We all thought this was pretty good. It wasn’t quite like normal cookie dough, but still fairly yummy. I couldn’t get past the almond flour taste in it enough to declare it really good, though.
We put the extras in the freezer and will enjoy them for a delicious snack tomorrow. I think it might taste even yummier frozen!
Next up, Silas and I made these Peanut Butter Pancakes.
This recipe was really easy to whip up, too.
I subbed half and half for the almond milk in this recipe, too.
The batter was really thick so I ended up making one pancake with the batter according to the recipe and the second pancake with a little extra liquid added to see what the difference would be.
The thicker pancake ended up turning out better. However, neither pancake ended up looking that great — but it was mostly because I used this pan on the stove top instead of our griddle. I didn’t feel like lugging out the big griddle to just make two pancakes!
They aren’t really peanut butter pancakes as they don’t have any peanut butter in them, but the peanut flour mixed with all the other ingredients sure makes them taste a lot like they do truly have peanut butter in them.
They weren’t too bad, but we much prefer the Trim Healthy Mama pancakes. I think it’s mostly because I’m learning that I just don’t like things make with coconut flour or almond flour when compared to recipes made with oat flour or oat fiber. Live and learn, eh?
After we were finished, Silas also helped me clean up the kitchen. He rinsed all the dishes and Kathrynne loaded the dishwasher while I put everything away and wiped down the countertops. It literally took just a few minutes and the kitchen looked spic and span again.
As the kids get older and we’re training them to be able to help with more and more chores, I just can’t believe how much of a difference it makes in our workload and how much cleaner our house stays — without me having to do much work at all!
Moms of littles: keep on and know that one day soon, your hard work is going to pay off and you’ll be working yourself out of job… Don’t give up!
