Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Breakfast Cookies

Cookies for breakfast? That sounds like a great idea to me! I found this recipe for Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Breakfast Cookies a few years back when I was reviewing Bob’s Red Mill Everyday Gluten-Free Cookbook and thought this would be a good time to repost them. They are great for busy school day mornings or anytime you need an easy breakfast idea. They make a nice snack too!

Frosted Chocolate Chip Mocha Brownies

I’m a big mocha fan—how about you? I’m a big brownie fan, too, so you’d think I would have made mocha brownies a long time ago. I finally got around to making them, after finding a recipe on the Community® Coffee Blog called Grandma W’s Extra Chocolaty Frosted Mocha Brownies. I modified that recipe slightly by adding mini semi-sweet chocolate chips to the batter and making my frosting a little thicker. They turned out soooo good!

Patriotic Brownies

Here’s a super-simple desert for the 4th of July—Patriotic Brownies! Everyone loves brownies and these are even more yummy because they’re topped with frosting and fresh strawberries and blueberries! The brownies are from a mix with chocolate chips and chopped walnuts (or pecans) added in. Or, you can make your favorite homemade brownie recipe. Likewise, these are frosted with ready-made frosting, but you can use your favorite homemade vanilla or cream cheese frosting recipe instead!
