While I’m out taking a break and healing from surgery, some of my favorite bloggers and bestest of friends have kindly agreed to help out with an LCMF blog series:
This series will hopefully answer some of your most frequently asked questions about “what can I do?” for someone who might be needing your help or support.
I am so thrilled to be able to help Lara out while she’s getting her jacked up body fixed. Truth is……..I’d do pretty much anything for that girl. She’s one of those people you meet and you just know she’s got your back. You feel like she’s been a solid friend forever. I first met Lara while attending a conference in April 2011. My first impression of her was…….hip, sassy, true. My impression of her a year later and a few more meetings later……the same, but on steroids. When I returned home, I featured her right away!
So when she asked if I would do a guest post for her while she was healing, I didn’t even need to think twice.
When people are sick, down from surgery, have a baby or just need an extra hand………I try to take them a home cooked meal or treat. I’ll never forget after having my son and having my whole word rocked in so many ways, that when a dear friend showed up on our door step with a hot meal and then refused to come in to visit…..I had never been so grateful for a gift in my entire life! That meal was exactly what I needed. It not only nourished my healing body, but it warmed my heart. It confirmed my beliefs that a gift doesn’t always have to cost money. Her gift is one I will always remember and have vowed to pass it forward since.
This quick recipe is a perfect treat to deliver to someone who may need a little pick me up. I’ve shared it on TCB, but I thought I’d spread the love and share it with all of you too!
Gluten Free Oatmeal Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
Recipe found on the back of my Trader Joes Rolled Oats
1/4 cup butter
1 1/4 tsp baking soda
3/4 cups sugar
3 cups Trader Joes Rolled Oats (Just a hunch, but I bet other rolled oats would work)
3/4 cup brown sugar
6 oz chocolate chips
1/2 cup sunflower or chopped walnuts
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup peanut butter
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, combine sugar, brown sugar and butter and beat until creamy. Add eggs, vanilla and baking soda and mix well. Add peanut butter and mix. Stir in oats, chocolate chips and nuts. Place teaspoon full of dough on a lightly greased cookie sheet about 2 inches apart. Bake 10-12 minutes until lightly brown around the edges.
Thanks for having me!
