As you guys know, or if you don’t, every time I eat processed sugar I get super sick!  So I’m trying everything I can to get in something sweet with all the right ingredients.  All thanks to my BBF foods in my pantry! (Better Body Foods)  I’ve made a million recipes with their ingredients.  This is where I go to get all my protein, organic foods like avocado oil, coconut oil, cacao powder, maca powder, chia seed, super seed etc.  They have the best choices and its all natural and pure.  Nothing artificial added to their products which is what I always look for when reading labels!  So you can trust their products!  I’ve shared them with you so much, but I don’t share anything that I don’t absolutely love and thats a tried and true product for me and my family.  So onto these amazing cookies, which are super easy to make.  

PEPPERMINT CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES

INGREDIENTS 

DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat Oven to 350
  • Add coconut oil to a bowl and warm up until less chunky.  In a large bowl, add in Coconut oil, honey, egg and peppermint extract.  Stir and mix up until its fluffy.  
  • Add flour, salt, cacao powder, pink salt, baking powder, baking soda to the wet mix.  Mix up until it becomes a dough.
  • Add chocolate chips and stir in, then chill in the freezer for 10 mins while the oven heats up.
  • Crush up the candy canes.  I unwrap them and put them into a plastic sack  to smash them up.
  • Form dough into small balls 1.5 inches apart (heaping 1 Tsbp) and place onto ungreased parchment paper lined baking sheet.  Press the tops down a little and place on more chocolate chips.  
  • Bake for 8-10 mins.  The edges will be slightly dry and the tops will look soft.  Let it sit on a cookie sheet for a few minutes, then sprinkle the candy canes on top of the cookies immediately.
  • Let cool before eating!

HOLIDAY MOCKTAIL RECIPE FOR MY PREGGO MAMAS

Alright my pregnant mamas who loved to have a cocktail before they got pregnant, or for those who don’t drink and want a little something to sip on!  This is for you!  And for those who want a little alcohol in it, feel free to add some titos vodka in my friends.  Check out my COSMIC CRANBERRY HOLIDAY COCKTAIL from last year too.  That can be a mocktail, just remove the alcohol. 

Honestly, I’m not a big drinker, but I love to have a drink socially.  Like going out on a date with TJ, or out with friends, or even just sitting my our fire together after Oaks goes to bed.  It’s nice to have a glass and unwind.  So I created this little mocktail, super easy btw and its been nice to sip on while I’m pregnant.  

WHAT YOU NEED

  • Club soda 
  • 1/2 squeeze lemon
  • 1/2 packet TRUE LEMON (any flavor is good, but I love raspberry lemonade)
  • Ice 
  • Wine glass

DIRECTIONS

  • Add ice to the wine glass.  Then pour in the club soda filling it as much as you want to drink.  Then mix in 1/2 packet of true lemon.  Squeeze in some lemon to your preference and then stir and enjoy!

I’ve been giving Oaks true lemon as his juice for over a year now.  I’m not a fan of giving him juice with all the sugar in it.  So this has been a really nice replacement and he loves it, plus it doesn’t have any aspartame in it like the crystal light packets do.   So he actually will ask for “juice in there”  in his sippy and thats what he’s talking about.. haha its really funny the way he says it.  “momma more juice in narr”  I’ll do honest apple juice while we’re out at a restaurant, but thats a rare occasion.  I don’t keep any of it in my house.  Thats not to say I don’t give him treats, but I just don’t keep them in the house.  I notice a big difference when he’s eating to much sugar.  Anyways, thats a different blog topic ha.

Let me know if you guys like this, and share your mocktail recipes below!
