A cookie made with Nutella? I was like hell ya. If you're like me and LOVE nutella then this might be the cookie for you. This cookie tends to lean in on a healthier scale, think more along the lines of granola, which we all know is one seriously pretty good thing... well maybe minus the butter but you can't disagree with oats, flaxseed, hazelnuts and the glory ingredient nutella now can we?
I've been bringing these to work the past couple of days for a somewhat healthy snack. There not very sweet but I love the nutty flavor and I find myself eating two at a time, of course.

recipe 1/2 cup melted butter 2/3 cup nutella or hazelnut spread 2 cups rolled oats 2/3 cups chopped roasted hazelnuts 1/2 tsp baking powder 1/4 cup whole ground flaxseed 1/2 cup flour 1 egg

market days: the goods

I did how ever manage to buy the candy cane beets, which are boiling up a storm as we speak... or as I write? Whichever, I picked up a few other things too. Truthfully if it was earlier and I wasn't planning to go anywhere else I would have bought sooo much more. I didn't think it was a good idea to carry a big ol' piece of raw meat or cheese in my purse while I went on a attempt to find some new 'underthings'. I just couldn't imagine walking into the ariestore knowing what my purse withheld, and on the other hand it I don't know... might go bad.
[Market tomatoes, pear shaped] I fell in love with these as soon as I saw them and knew immediately that I was gonna put these babies in pasta. This is a pretty basic pasta: tomatoes, basil, garlic, olive oil, lemon, and salt a…
