Peanut Butter Cookies

After gaining the infamous freshman fifteen three years ago (and spending the last two years doing whatever to get back into shape), I made a few rules for myself:

1. No Nutella.

2. No Oreos.

3. No snacks unless I've worked for them.*

* bake/make them myself = I put in my time and effort

* menstration = it's an exercise (?)

* one unhealthy snack per grocery trip = carrying heavy bags burn a lot of energy

So I learned to bake - except I can barely step foot into the kitchen without something going wrong. Also, every recipe I found online seemed to involve some exotic food or spice that no college student would find in their cabinets. (Who has money to spend $10 on natural vanilla extract?) So I had to find reaaaally simple recipes with minimal ingredients. Here is my recent favorite!


1/2 cup peanut butter

1/2 cup sugar

1 egg


1. Mix.

2. Scoop into balls.

3. Bake for 8 - 10 minutes at 350°F

That's it! There's no doubting how unhealthy it is, but hey, at least it's not store-bought.

Now time to hit the gym.
