what is the number one best thing poppin' off in the woodsly goodness right now?
peanut butter oatmeal chocolate chip cookies.
you'd better believe it, buddy.
peanut butter cocoa drizzles all over the top of all of it to boost the burliness,
and the big activated action of 'em all the way up to eleven.
check the teleport:
i don't always eat seven cookies,
but when i do, it's because they're these jauns.
holy sh!tballs, i couldn't stop myself.
on the ones, i made three dozen,
and there's like ten left.
that's a had style, and a tough look, too.
i mean it.
i overdid all the things all the day long.
my homeboy dylan came through with a well-done sicilian square pizza,
and some blackberry cucumber seltzers,
like he's the mountain mackin' plug or somethin',
and he helped take down a great many cookies in a cooperative consumption contest-
we ate pizza, drank seltzies, and beat UP those cookies.
my other other dudes were present, and their appetites were on point, as well.
man, you act like i don't i share.
if y'all'd've been there, you could've had a few, too.
i never ever ever get cheap with the treat dispensation, duder...
that's the warrior poetic way:
gratitude and generosity, forever.
i'm even gonna give you the recipe, so you can get busy gettin' busy
with these bad boys all by your own damned self:
PEANUT BUTTER OATMEAL CHOCOLATE CHIP BLOXXX!
preheat your oven to 375℉
in a medium-sized metal mixin' bowl, mash up:
1/2 cup sugar;
1/2 cup brown sugar;
1/2 tsp salt;
1 stick (8T) vegan butts;
1 tsp vanilla.
combine completely, then stir in:
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce;
1/2+ cup natural creamy peanut butter.
make sure that's all totally blended together,
1 cup quick oats;
1 cup coarse oat flour (ground in a spice grinder from rolled oats, bro);
1 1/3 cups flour;
1 tsp baking powder;
1 tsp baking soda;
1/2 cup fair trade organic chocolate chips.
^^mash that up into a perfectly pleasant cookie dough,
and flatten up all the little bals you can fit on two cookie sheets.
bake 'em for 13 minutes,
and allow them to cool completely before blasting off into the future with that icing-
ICY COCOA PB GLAZE!
in a small bowl, combine:
4 sifted T cocoa;
1/2 cup powdered sugar;
2 T peanut butter;
1/2 tsp vanilla.
2-3 T non-dairy milk, as needed, to thin all of that to a spreadable consistency.
does it get any better?
put one in your face, and try to tell me how it could.
because too much is the right amount,
and that's exxxactly how much of these you're going to need.
i'm not saying these are so expert that other cookies are uninvited,
but i am saying these are so expert
that only eating one means you're definitely an A*-hole.
make 'em, and you'll know just how dope a handful of these tasty treats truly are.
the sun is out and the skies are lookin' hella crisp,
all ahead of some sort of supersnowstorm headed our way.
it isn't spring yet in new england,
nor is it when the calendar claims it is, either.
that's our thing.
hard styles, unreliable weather, inconstancy in all things at all times.
i think it's what makes us such an enduring people.
i'm being serious.
the unpredictable, yet expected poor performance of the weather
has us always ready for the worst,
which in turn has us in a perpetual Positive Mental Attitude-
we're ready for it, man.
even though it's likely to be a bummer,
we dig in, and sit through, and dig back out.
new england isn't for weak-sauce watery diaper-babies.
they all leave because it's too hard.
the hard way is the shortest distance to personal growth, guys.
taking it easy makes everything take longer,
and if you think slow and steady wins the race?
then i kinda doubt you've ever actually been in a race;
never quiet, never soft.....
