No Bake Energy Balls

Easy, no bake energy balls are a great pick-me-up snack any time of day. #vegan #nobake Recipe on

When my mother was in town last month, we picked up some medjool dates at the local warehouse store where we have a membership. I kind of felt like a kid in a candy store when we made the purchase because neither my mom nor I usually buy dates at home because neither my dad nor my husband are fans, and it’s a caloric nightmare to eat a huge box of dates by oneself. But they are so good, one of my favorite foods, and I enjoyed sharing them with my mommy while she was here.  (more…)

Secret Recipe Club: Cookie Butter Snaps

Crispy cookies made with just 5 ingredients, including totally addicting Speculoos cookie butter!

Guess what darlings? Today is my first official post as a member of the Secret Recipe Club! The Secret Recipe Club is a fabulous group of bloggers that gets together (virtually) to make each other’s recipes. You’re assigned to another blogger and you get to visit their site, get to know them a bit, and then you pick one of their recipes to make and feature. Fun, right?

For my first assignment, I was given Colleen over at The Cookie Princess and thought, “PERFECT! Every princess needs a Godmother.” It was only a natural pairing, right? I also loved that we are both bakers, and her collection of cookie recipes is really impressive. Actually, she has quite the impressive list of baked goods, the focus of her blog, but I chose to make cookies because, well, Cookie Princess. It’s rather self explanatory.

I decided to make the Cookie Butter Snaps because I don’t typically make crispy cookies, so this is something newer for me, and I just so happened to have some cookie butter on hand from my Valentine’s mervielleux dessert adventure.

The cookies were good, but I had an issue with spreading on one of my cookie sheets. The other one was fine, so I’m not sure if maybe the cookies were placed too close together? I would likely chill the dough for a few minutes first before baking next time as I feel that would fix the problem. To make up for the odd shapes in the cookies, I drizzled them with some melted white chocolate because nobody pays attention to less-than-perfect cookies when there’s chocolate involved.

  3. Scoop out dough in tablespoon increments and roll into approximately 1 inch balls.

  5. Bake 10-12 minutes, rotating the pans once halfway through.
  6. Allow to set on the baking sheet 2-3 minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.
*I didn't have cinnamon sugar so I mixed together 2 tbsp sugar and 2 tsp cinnamon. It worked beautifully. 😉
