Comfort Food at its Finest

I am all about healthy substitutes, whole wheat over white, skim over whole, grilled over fried, light over heavy…

With that said, sometimes a girl just needs a cookie. A real, old fashioned cookie. Complete with butter, sugar, flour, and chocolate. Lots of chocolate. 
ImageWith the season premier of the Bachelor set to DVR last night, I made my way into the kitchen, rolled up the sleeves of my robe-who needs an apron, anyway, and proceeded to empty out the contents of our cupboards. Luckily, with a sweet tooth like mine, I almost always have the ingredients on hand for a dessert of some sort.

ImageWhat you will need to make these mini monster cookies: 
  • 2 cups flour
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 sticks of butter (gasp)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • chocolate chips
  • peanut butter m&ms
*Bake at 375 degrees for 8 minutes
Reader Question: What is your all-time favorite comfort food?

  1. There’s seriously nothing better than fresh baked cookies! And I’m obsessed with peanut butter M&M’s, ugh so good! I agree, cookies shouldn’t be healthy all the time. Bring on the butter and sugar!

  2. GAH! Nola looking at those cookies is the cutest thing ever!

    Those cookies sound delicious. I couldn’t agree more – sometimes healthy substitutions just won’t cut it and sugary baked goods are just what the Dr. ordered!
