Truth: If I had the option of meeting Jennifer Aniston or Mama Pea of Peas and Thank You I’d probably choose Mama Pea. This is saying a lot because I’m probably one of the biggest “Friends” fans you’ll ever meet. (Favorite episode ever? When Ross tries to learn the bagpipes for Monica and Chandler’s wedding…hilarious!)
Here’s the reason: What would Jennifer Aniston and I talk about? How I wanted her haircut in 1994? Why a “Friends” reunion is necessary? It would be awkward. However, if I could hang out with Mama Pea, I’m certain we could talk for hours, if only about food…and maybe, just maybe, she would bring me some of these…
These are cookie dough balls. To be specific they are peanut butter chocolate chip cookie dough balls and I love love them.
These are super easy to make, vegan and oh so yummy.
Gather your ingredients. Easy.
Mix up the peanut butter and sugars. Simple.
Invite a 3 year old to run the hand mixer. This all of a sudden became complicated. Especially when his sister wants to “help”…
Instead, give her the measuring cup of peanut butter to clean out. Success. Crisis averted. The girl loves her pb!
The best part about vegan cooking? No salmonella…
Flour is added along with the Best. Part. Ever….chocolate chips! Note: a minor meltdown was brewing over the desire to sample said chocolate chips, but we made it through. Phew.
Form them into balls (apparently this part is super exciting to Miss Rae:), bake and enjoy! Or, be like Matty B and eat approximately 3 cookies worth of dough when he thinks I’m not looking. But I’m a mom AND a teacher. I know everything.
I think they liked them:)
Side note: Matty B is super picky about his baked goods being over done. According to him, these were burnt. Burnt? What?
Help me, people, please! Would you comment, just a quick “yes” or “no” (yes, they’re burnt, no they aren’t) so this debate can be settled once and for all!
