Technical Difficulties, Wardobe Malfunctions, The Usual

I was so excited to share this giveaway with you and then I went and blew the photos - meaning I took a bazillion and didn't realize until I was processing them that *ahem* there was a slight wardrobe, erm, complication. And then pretty much everything snowballed from there and I regret to inform you that the giveaway is rescheduled for next Monday.

But. BUT. You will love it. I promise.

And. AND. You will want to come back and enter. And enter. And enter. Because there will be multiple chances to win.

In the meantime, please to enjoy this clean eating cookie recipe review:

Almond Butter Cookies with Dark Chocolate (from The Best of Clean Eating)
1 C. unsalted almond butter
3/4 c. sucanat
1 egg
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp. fine sea salt
3 oz. dark chocolate, broken into pieces

Stir first five ingredients until well blended, then add chocolate chunks (I went easy on my family and used semi sweet chips) and drop by rounded spoonfuls onto parchment lined cookie sheets. Bake at 350 for 10 minutes. Let cool on cookie sheet for 5 minutes, transfer to rack and let cool for another 10 minutes. (It seems to keep cooking as it sits). Yield: 24 cookies.

This recipe received 4 thumbs up, and 2 "It's not my favorite" - I was one of the ones who really liked it. I ended up using salted (but definitely not sugared) organic almond butter and not adding any salt to the recipe. The sucanat gives it a nice texture and flavor. These are not fat free or low calorie by any means, but they are a pretty good option for when your sweet tooth comes calling. And if you can handle dark chocolate, they're high in anti-oxidants too.

The cookies look yummy. That is funny about the wardrobe malfunction. At least you caught it before you posted the pictures, right?

At first I was like, "oh, I'm not into milk chocolate chip cookies." Then I read the name of the recipe. YUM! Then I was like, " well, I already have a good chocolate chip cookie recipe." And then I read the first ingredient. Double YUM! I am definitely going to make these SOON.
