CHOCOLATE CHIP CRANBERRY N'OATMEAL COOKIES

CHOCOLATE CHIP CRANBERRY N'OATMEAL COOKIES

Well I've been on a bit of a cookie kick lately. Probably because I've made them for my teammates a few times now and they've started to expect them when I turn up for training. I also bribe Mark Bell with them so he'll teach me how to powerlift. It seems to be working. He helped me bench press 200lbs over the weekend and made a really nice video about my deadlift. I think he referred to my form as "a dog crapping on a front lawn" you can check it out here: Fixing Ashley Beaver's Deadlift. Other then that my life has been busy with work and training. I've been training at WarriorZ CrossFit in Elk Grove on their Caffeine and Kilos NorCal Regional team. It's been an amazing experience to say the least. The athletes I've had the pleasure of working with are experienced, knowledgeable and a lot of fun to be around. We push each other, coach one anther, and hang out when we're finished. I couldn't ask for a more supportive group of friends to be training with every day. I made these cookies for a BBQ we had last weekend. Considering the fact that they were gone in 2 seconds, I'm gonna say they were liked somewhat. So you'll probably want to make them. Enjoy and happy weekend!

CRANBERRY WALNUT COOKIES

CRANBERRY WALNUT COOKIES

I have a serious addiction to chocolate. I'm just going to be honest and put that out there. I like my desserts smothered in it. And I just like to eat it by the handful. But it's an unhealthy habit. Sure a little dark chocolate is good for you, but I surpass the healthy amount when I get to eating it. So I wanted to come up with a dessert that was delicious and chocolate free! I love cookies, they're so simple and if you have self control (which is another thing I'm working on) you can just have a few and not feel guilty at all! So yea, that's the great news about these cookies, but I'm sure you want to know what's happening in my life as well. Don't you always? Well, I have a lot of free time to cook and blog right now, so that's a win win.
