Chocolate Chip Bars made with a Cake Mix

I have to say, baking is my favorite part of cooking.  Whether it's from scratch or semi-homemade, I'm loving it. That is why you will find so many desserts on my blog. Don't get me wrong, I do love to cook meals.....just not as much..  Smiles are always plentiful when my boys smell something baking in the oven. These Chocolate Chip Bars are no exception.  They are so easy to make...which I definitely love, with the help of a boxed cake mix.

Very Chocolate Brownies

I made these for my son to share with his class for his birthday.  They are very chocolaty and moist and a Hit!  I adapted this recipe from an old clip I found for Baker’s One Bowl Brownies.

My son requested these for his breakfast this morning.   I made them with the Homemade Biscuit Mix I made yesterday.  They turned out nice and fluffy.  He loved them!

Peanut Peanut Butter Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies

I made these yummy cookies yesterday. They are made without flour and if you use oatmeal instead of whole grains cereal, you will make them gluten free. Today when I checked, there were only 2 left.  I’m hiding them since there are 3 boys and I wouldn't want anyone to get their feelings hurts.  Guess where they can be found.  Winking smile  These made just shy of 3 dozen…you can make them a little smaller if you need more.  That’s probably a good idea if you have hungry cookie monsters like I do.  I also have another, no flour, Peanut Butter Cookies I made earlier this year that my boys also gobbled up.  Yep, they love peanut butter!  Make some of these thin, chewy, peanutty, chocolaty cookies for your cookie monsters and a little extra for yourself.  You’ll be glad you did.    <3 and hugs!

Peanut Peanut Butter Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 cup extra crunchy peanut butter
1 cup dark brown brown sugar, make your own brown sugar
1/2 cup whole grain hot cereal, or quick oatmeal, uncooked….make instant oatmeal
1 egg, beaten
1/4 cup dark chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F  Stir baking soda in with sugar.  Mix peanut butter and with sugar until incorporated.  I used a fork, you can use a mixer to make it easier.  Stir in beaten egg.  Add  dry cereal stir well.  Stir in chocolate chips.  Roll into walnut size balls, place on ungreased cookie sheets.  Bake for 8-10 minutes until turning brown around the edges.  Take out of oven when done.  They will be soft.   Let sit on cookie sheet for 1 – 2  minutes.  Transfer to cooling racks.  Enjoy!

Peanut Butter Cookies Gluten Free

Each Tuesday this summer means my twin 5 year old boys are going on dates to the movies.  ~smile~  I'll be honest with you...I'm a Mom that takes food to the theater.  There is just no reason to charge 3 dollars for a bottle of water or 6 dollars for a soda (I drink way to many diet cokes).  The food is ridiculously priced as well.   The exception is a large popcorn.  I can divide it 5 ways and refill it for free on the way out for us to munch on later.  Most Tuesday mornings you will find me bustling about the kitchen making a snacks to take with us.  This morning I was out of flour, all flour.  I remembered this one my precious Mama would make for me oh so many years ago.  ~smile~  I made them and added mini chocolate chips to the tops before putting them in the oven.  They are sweet, I think I will reduce the by half next time I make them.  My boys loved them and I hope you do, too! <3 and hugs!


Peanut Butter Cookies Gluten Free
makes 2 to 3 dozen bite size cookies

1 cup peanut butter, your choice
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 egg, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup, more or less, chocolate chips, optional
1/4 cup, more or less, oats, optional
1/4 cup, more or less, peanuts or pecans, optional

Stir both sugars (start with half of each and taste, adding more if you wish), egg and vanilla together.  
Add chocolate chips, nuts, oats or whatever you wish, if you want to.  Start with 1/4 and adding a little more if desired. 
Pinch dough and roll into a quarter size ball for bite size cookies and place on an un-greased cookie sheet.  
I pushed the dough slightly and added mini chocolate chips on the top instead of in the dough.
Bake for 5 minutes, turn and bake another 2-5 minutes depending on size.  
They are done when brown on bottom and light brown around edges. 
Put on cooling rack immediately out of the oven.   
Enjoy!  <3 and hugs!

Dark Chocolate Chip Strawberry Shortcakes

I'm still trying to revamp recipes to make them a little healthier than my norm.  Healthier this time was adding flax seed and cutting down on the sugar.   One of my twins was more than happy to help this morning when I told him we were making this for breakfast.  He sliced the strawberries, added the vanilla and little bit of sugar.
