ProBar Winner & Double Chocolate Chip & Pine Nut Cookies

Happy Friday all! I am enjoying my day off of work! Unfortunately, my tummy has been acting up allll morning. I woke up around 3 am to an aching belly and couldn't fall back asleep. Although my tummy hurt, I was some how hungry so I ate a little and it started to feel better. I decided (since I was up) to take 5:45 am Body Pump and then I walked a bit on the treadmill. Afterwards it was off to the food store for my weekly stock up trip.

I returned home, unloaded my goods and made up some Double Chocolate Chip & Pine Nut Cookies!! We're going on a trip tomorrow (which I will tell you about tomorrow or Sunday IF things go well) and I wanted to bring the people we're visiting some baked goods. I used Joy of Baking's chocolate cookies recipe as the base, doubled all quantities, removed the white chocolate chips, added regular semi sweet chips and toasted pine nuts. The yummy result:


Ok, ok onto the winner of the ProBar contest!!! Now don't be sad if you didn't win because I have another AWESOME contest that I am going to announce later on today for some yummy greek yogurt!! The winner of the ProBar contest is (based on a random number generator):
