Oooops….Almond Butter Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Multitasking makes you stupid…its true. I am a HUGE multitasker. At any given time, I’m usually doing at least two, if not three or four things. This proved slightly disastrous on Monday morning when I went to bake a birthday treat for a friend. Instead of going to blog world to look for a new recipe to make, I leaned on a cook book I recently reviewed, Parents Need To Eat Too (disclaimer: I received this book for free).


I found an awesome recipe for healthier almond butter banana oatmeal cookies. I knew this would be the perfect treat for said friend.


I mixed up the ingredients, but wasn’t paying too close attention to what I was doing. Instead, I was keeping a very close eye on Kaylin who is ALMOST crawling. I baked up the first batch of cookies and they seemed kind of meh…then I realized I didn’t put in the almond butter (doh!). I mixed an estimated amount of almond butter into the rest of the batter and baked them up. They turned out really well (IMO)!



To make up for the smaller amount of cookies in the package, I baked up a batch of pumpkin chocolate chip bars and put a few in there. You all should totally run out and get this cook book! Even if you don’t have children, there are so many delicious recipes in the book.

On a side note, Josh and I recently hit up Basil for dinner. This place is seriously delicious (although it’s a little pricey for what you get…). One of their best menu items, the flaming wonton soup:


Basil on Urbanspoon

While we were at dinner, Kaylin learned to hide on her own. It seriously cracked me up (as you can tell). Excuse my annoying baby voice Winking smile:

Basil has such a good happy hour. Appetizers are 5 and under and drinks are really cheap too!
