Peanut butter cookies and something about (not) staying in the moment

Sometimes London is too much – people are standing a little bit too close, slightly bigger gaps between the trains so more people on the platforms, other people’s headphones are louder than usual, everyone seems to have really bad coffee breath and there is always someone walking very sloooowly in front of you.

The day before yesterday was one of those days! Then I also got a message from the builder that he now needs access to my flat Saturday and Sunday to finish the wall in my living room on time. Noo, weekends are M and me time, not builders in my flat time.

So I decided not to live in the moment (and deal with the situation) and went into the kitchen to bake some peanut butter cookies. Prior to that I had been practising staying (more) in the moment. First step was to delete the facebook app on my phone – and I do feel like I have more time in the day. Another part of me thinks that I am really missing out on … well, videos of fat cats that can’t jump (it was funny though), thousands of comments on articles (I can read the articles on the websites), and I suspect that my friends will be fine without me liking or commenting on their posts immediately. So from now on I will make a concious decision to log into FB (when I need my curiosity fix) and not just aimlessly browse through the updates.

Anyway, back to the cookies which were, not only easy to make, surprisingly nice and rather filling so I still have a few left.

And the situation with the builder taking over my flat for the whole weekend … Well, Cotwolds here we come! Have a great weekend everyone!

Ingredients

Makes 12 cookies

1 egg
0.5ml (1/2 dl) sukrin
100ml (1 dl) sukrin peanut flour
1tsp baking powder (not sure if this is needed – next time I will try without)
2 (very) large tbsp of crunchy peanut butter (no added sugar)

Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4

Beat the egg with Sukrin until fully mixed.

Add the peanutflour and baking powder and beat again. Finally add the peatnut butter and whisk until well mixed.

With a spoon place the mixture on a baking tray covered with baking paper. Make sure that there is room between them as they will spread during baking.

Bake in the middle of the oven for about 10-15 minutes. Keep an eye them because suddenly they will burn. Mine could have done with a couple of minutes less but they were still delicious.
