Spinach Pizza Sandwich and Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

Today’s Workout

  • Step & Tone Class – 60 minutes
  • That is all

Yesterday

Yesterday afternoon, I finally made the spinach pizza sandwich that I saw on Pinterest. I plugged in George to heat up and then I assembled my sandwich.

I used:

I really like the Aunt Millie’s slimwiches because they are a little thicker and doughier than regular sandwich thins. And they only have 90 calories.

I topped one half with pizza sauce.

Then, I added spinach and a Babybel light cheese. I think this would also work well with shredded mozzarella cheese.

I put in on the George Foreman grill and grilled in for a few minutes – about 4-5 minutes until the cheese melted.

I ate it with some apple slices on the side. I knew this George Foreman grill would come in handy :)

I also baked cookies yesterday afternoon. I saw the peanut butter protein cookies on Run Eat Repeat’s blog, and they got me craving peanut butter cookies. I didn’t make mine with protein powder. I just made basic flourless peanut butter cookies.

Flourless Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Handful of chocolate chips

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a bowl combine sugar, peanut butter, egg, baking soda, and vanilla extract. Mix well.
  3. Add chocolate chips and combine.
  4. Place spoonfuls of dough on a baking sheet and press down with a fork in a criss cross pattern.
  5. Bake in a preheated oven 8-9 minutes.

Make sure you don’t overcook these cookies or they will get to crisp. I cooked the first batch for about 9 minutes and they were perfect, although they appeared slightly underdone (they will continue to cook when cooling and harden a bit). I had enough dough to make about four more cookies and I baked them about 11 minutes and they were so crispy that I had to toss them.

I ate a few cookies and then had Danny take the rest to work. I like baking and eating a few cookies, but I hate having the leftovers sitting around the house.
