Polly Wants Some Peanut Butter

For the past two nights, I have been craving two of my favorite things in the world.. Chocolate and Peanut Butter. 

These two bad boys called out to me, Trader Joe’s 100 Calorie Chocolate Graham Toucan and 1 tbs of Natural Peanut Butter.

Simple and delicious.  Eating this reminds me of when I was a little kid.  For a treat, we would have JIF peanut butter and sheets upon sheets of chocolate graham crackers.  Ah, to be young and naive about calories 😉

Early Morning Splurging

This morning’s breakfast wasn’t a splurge but it sure tasted like one!!  Oh, and I have recovered from that weird nap last night 🙂

Pumpkin-Banana Oats with Chocolate Chips.

Pumpkin, banana, chocolate chips, cinnamon, and flax

Sushi and Sweets!

This afternoon, I finally got to try Trader Joe’s ‘Just a Handful of Go Raw Trek Mix’.  They are pre-portioned snack bags of trail mix!

210 calories, 3 grams of fiber, and 7 grams of protein.  They were really tasty but slightly high in calories… it was good for a day where I am not feeling 100%!

After munching on these, I went for a very easy 2.25 mile walk.  It was nice out and I wanted to move on my ‘off’ day so it was perfect

DINNER

For dinner tonight, I went out and had Sushi!

Salad with Ginger Dressing.  I had a few bites of this, the dressing wasn’t good at all…

Steamed Edamame with Sea Salt.

Asparagus Roll!  Tempura Asparagus turned out to be fantastic!  I was surprised when this roll came out because I wasn’t expecting it to be crispy!

Vegetable Roll with asian baby carrots, marinated daikon, cucumber, and asparagus.

DESSERT!

For dessert tonight, We raided Earth Fare!  I had several samples of vegan candy from the bulk section and ended up making two sweet purchases.

Vegan Chocolate Frosted Cake

Double Chocolate Cookie from Alternative Baking. 

Don’t worry, I didn’t eat it all  😛

I am pretty full and extremely happy!

Chocolate Cupcakes with Peanut Buttercream Frosting!

To celebrate the blog’s one month anniversary, I made Chocolate Cupcakes with Peanut Buttercream Frosting from Vegan Cupcakes Take Over The World.  I took a lot of pictures and can you believe this is my first Vegan Cupcake-ever! 

Before frosting.

With Peanut Buttercream Frosting!

The chocolate and peanut butter combo was fantastic! The entire family enjoyed these, even my skeptical younger brother (he sniffed it a few times before deeming it worthy).

Here is my cupcake with a glass of Silk!

Sorry for the flood of photos, I’m sort of excited!  I’m blogging upstairs so I’m not tempted to eat another cupcake!  I didn’t do the calories for this dessert, I’m just enjoying it 🙂

Chocolate Chip Cookies

I wasn’t hungry when I woke up this morning.  So, rather than force myself to eat I decided to do something I enjoy: bake!  I used Veganomicon’s Wheat Free Chocolate Chip cookie recipe.  It was so relaxing and fun to bake- The last time I baked was during Christmas (time flies!)

Cookie Dough!  I can’t lie, I definitely licked the spoon when I was done!

Fresh out of the oven. 

A close up for you guys!  They were crumbly due to the oat flour but they are delicious.  I actually made the oat flour myself by putting oats in a food processor!

I haven’t had cookies with real sugar for quite some time but now that I have given up Splenda and all artificial sweeteners I can actually enjoy a real dessert.  I baked these without knowing the calories but of course I had to find out when I was done.  I was shocked!  They aren’t that bad for you!  Who knows how many i’ll eat today 😛
