swirled chewy chocolate peanut butter cup cookies (gluten-free, dairy-free)

Untitled

I made these delicious (and SO easy) little cookies the morning before I left for a little trip to Syracuse, and they were ready in a jiffy.

Half of the cookie is a five-ingredient peanut butter cookie recipe that was based off of this recipe, and the other half is a dark chocolate version of that using almond butter (a spin off of the spin off!!!). Both are incredibly easy.

In a blogger’s world, any recipe that is worth repeating is a BIG DEAL.

3 times in 1 weekend.

Make them! Perfectly fudgy, melty, and chewy like store bought popsicles, but much richer and homemade tasting. Perfection.

mix it up interval run

I don’t usually do this, but I wanted to try something new and use pic monkey to create a graphic! Since this blog is first and foremost my way of documenting my creations, I think that this falls under that category.

This is one of the workouts that I’ve been doing lately. I love being able to run outside in the summer, but I usually have to keep myself from getting too bored when I’m running by myself! When the music gets old, and I’m not feeling the audiobooks, I like to break up the miles with some circuit training.

This morning, I went through this workout 3 times at the park and around my neighborhood (and borrowed the edge of someone’s yard…oops).

raw vegan chocolate & peanut butter cups

I’ve been wanting to try making my own raw chocolate for a while, and I don’t know why I waited so long! With only 3 ingredients, it couldn’t be easier.

Hello, cute little heart molds from IKEA. You’re supposed to be for ice cubes, but I don’t care! Although now that I think about it, some fruit-infused heart ice cubes would be adorable.

black bottom cupcakes

These are SO easy and delicious, I’m kicking myself for never trying to make them before!

The prep time may be a tiny bit longer to make the cream cheese filling, but the end product is pretty cute and doesn’t need any frosting or other decorating!

The chocolate cake is so dark chocolatey and moist–I’m sure it would be great on its own too! Bonus: it’s vegan!

Yum!
