Monday Motivation (all about food)
I like to cook. I like to bake. I am not a professional but, since we have to eat and sometimes it's an enjoyable experience we do it.
Today I was super motivated and made 3 things! Now as I stated I'm not a professional so I will also share the recipes of the items!
I think the one thing I have on my side at least is that 2 of the 3 are healthy. The bonus is that everything is kid approved. As a mom of picky eaters that just makes me so happy!
I started my morning with a cup of hot mint chocolate. This was a fun recipe with its green color and I even choose to make one red in honor of the upcoming Valentines Day! Easy recipe with minimal ingredients and tasty!

Next up was a healthy spin on cookie dough bites. I would never try to make cookie dough healthy but, I would try to make my kids eat healthier. Guess what 1 out of 2 kids fell for it. That's OK thats a start! This cookie dough balls although made with chickpeas are actually quite good. I guess there's enough sweet stuff in them to kind of coat the taste. I thought they were a little dry but, that just means we need a class of milk with our cookies!

Lastly we not only needed some chocolate but we needed a dessert. Enter the chocolate brownies! Since I was on a healthy role I decided to stick with it. This recipe makes a nice moist cake like chocolate brownie. 2 kid approved on this one!

Now I'm not saying get our of hand and make everything on Monday but, I am saying if your going to make something, make it a little healthy and a lot of good!
