National Peanut Butter Cookie Day

My workout of choice lately has been swimming laps. I can be out in the sunshine, I love being weightless in the water, and maybe the chlorine can help with my godawful acne. However, swimming does make me ravenous. I was sitting here after lunch, thinking about how I was still hungry, and I read that it's National Peanut Butter Cookie Day.


Flourless peanut butter cookies. Except I used 1 cup of peanut butter, 3/4 cup brown sugar, and 1 flax egg, so I guess they're vegan, too. Bake at 350 for 10 minutes. Delish. And totally worth having to add a new jar of peanut butter to the grocery list.

Swim hunger: 0 Therese: 1.


  1. O.K ! What is a flax egg???? Grandma S

    1. Whoops! Sorry for the confusion. A "flax egg" is 1 Tablespoon of ground flax seed mixed with 3 Tablespoons of water. If you mix it in a small bowl and set it on the counter for 5 or 10 minutes, it starts to thicken and gets a gel-like consistency. Of course, the original recipe just used one real egg so you could do that too.
