Yesterday was a long day, so I am going to pretend that today is the start of the week. I did have a successful start to the Spring Bootie Buster(Fitness Friday) so that is good. Today I get to spend the day substituting in Kindergarten and will come home for a much needed run (need a little stress relief but was up too late last night to get up early to do it)
Here are some recipes I have tried and liked this week:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper
Mix bananas, coconut oil, and peanut butter with a hand or stand mixer until combined. Mix in sugar, egg, baking soda, vanilla and flax. Mix in flour and oats and blend until just combined. Stir in chocolate chips
Scoop 1/4 cupfuls onto you baking sheet. Flatten slightly with the palm of your hand (they will not flatten themselves while baking) Bake for 10 minutes or until they start to get golden brown. Cool before removing from cookie sheet
Best served warmed in the microwave. Keep some in the freezer for a fast morning breakfast. My recipe made 9 cookies

I am feeling very lucky and blessed because I am surrounded with a loving and supportive group of family and friends. I feel lucky everyday for the life I live and for what God has given me, the good and the bad and there have been some tough times. But every night before I go to bed I thank God for all he has given to me, I truly appreciate it all.
I feel lucky to have such an amazing family and not just my immediate family but my extended family (which includes my husbands family) . I know that not everyone has a family like mine which is why I feel so blessed to have them. We enjoy being with each other and we see each other often. Not just on holiday's because we feel like we have too. My boys are great friends with their cousins which I think is awesome.
I am also blessed to have so many great and supportive friends. I am lucky to have made friends with people who encourage me in the things I choose. They challenge me in positive ways and we have lots of fun together.
