You know when you do something amazing, like get your newborn twins to fall asleep on cue so you can whip up fantastically perfect raw cookies and you feel like a superhero? Well, I can't believe I'm saying this, but I do! Well for today, at least. I lulled the girls asleep by strolling them around the block a few times, then gently and carefully eased them into the house where I quietly played in the kitchen with a new find: Jem Raw Organic Superfruit Maqui Camu sprouted almond butter. After a little trial and error, this wonderful cookie was created and I must saw, it is one protein-packed nutrient-rich energizing treat! Just don't eat half the batch at once. Not that I know anyone that would do that...
