This Chocolate cookie pizza is gluten free, high in protein and so quick and easy to make! You would never know it’s a healthier treat!
YOU GUYS. WE MADE IT TO THE END OF THE WEEK!
Was it just me or did this feel like the longest week EVAH? Then again, I think I feel that way every.single.week. You too? Glad it’s not just me.
Now, because you worked SO hard this week and got ALL THE THINGS crossed off your to-do list, I think you deserve a treat. Whaddya think?
Sidenote: Even if you’re to-do list is still eleventy billion miles long, just pretend that it’s done. That’s what I do most of the time. 🙂
Ya’ll KNOW that I have a slight love of peanut butter (read: a total and complete undying love for the stuff. Somuchso that if it had asked me to marry it pre-Mr. FFF I would have said yes.) SO, OBVI when my brain thinks of “treats that make ya face say GOOD GOLLY YUM” it goes toward this ULTRA creamy, nutterific goodness.
You guys. I just let you into my BRAIN. Was it a scary and not-super-sensical place? Probably.
Anyway, the sequel.
How-EV-ER, today we are not just talking about any old peanut butter (not that any peanut butter is inferior, I am an equal opportunity peanut butter-ist.) Today it’s SALTED CARAMEL PEANUT BUTTER.
Like. WHOA. !!! + more !!!!! for the EFFECT.
I have been eating peanut butter for as long as I can remember being on this earth, so when I had the chance to try the NEW, limited-edition Peanut Butter Spread with Salted Caramel Creamy, well…I didn’t even have to think for .01 seconds.
YES YES YES…..please. We can’t get rude in our excitement. You understand.
This peanut butter is the ultimate you guys. If you were on the brink of attending PB Anonymous before, just wait until you try this. It’s still got the rich, smooth texture that we all know and love. BUT THEN an extra layers of salty/sweet goodness that will make your taste buds fall RIGHT OUT OF YOUR MOUTH.
And you won’t even be worried about it.
After tasting the ULTIMATE peanut butter, I knew it would make the ultimate peanut butter oatmeal cookie. BUT, that would be a little predictable right? You know we don’t do things like that ‘round here.
Enter the Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookie PIZZA! That justsohappens to be gluten free, INSANELY easy , ready before you can say “scrumdiddlyumptious” and protein packed due to Greek Yogurt Frosting.
Yogurt. It aint just for your breakfast nums anymore.
Now, before you RUN (don’t walk guys. DON’T DO IT) to the grocery store to find salted caramel peanut butter (because it’s on shelves now!) can I make a suggestion?
There’s this fancy awards show coming up. You might know it as “The Oscars.”
You might (read: will) just need some fun finger foodies to serve at the awesome bash that I KNOW you’re throwing.
