Secret Recipe Club


It’s Secret Recipe Club time.

Hands in the ai-ur, wave em’ like ya just don’t cay-ur.

This week is all about Rachel Humiston, the lovely lady behind the blog, The Avid Appetite.

Rachel “claims” that she couldn’t even boil water 3 years ago…but we all know that somewhere deep inside, Rachel had some GNARLY cooking/baking skills.

Now, she shares her fabulous recipes with us on her blog…it’s a win-win situation.

Because my days are pretty jam packed w/ work I go for the quick snacks.

Enter Rachel’s recipe for Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cookie for One.

I mean, seriously? That had my name written all over it.

I haven’t had peanut butter since I gave it up for Lent and have felt amazing ever since.

Soooo…I substituted it w/ coconut butter. 🙂

You can basically use any nut butter in this recipe that you wish.

It’s all about improvisation, people.

I didn’t really change the recipe at all, I just substituted coconut flour to make this cookie paleo-friendly.


What, what!


This cookie is seriously cake-like…fluffy and chewy.


Oh, and those melted chocolate chips w/ each bite.


Mhhhhm you know what I’m talking about.


And the best thing about it…it’s for you and you only.


Single serving cookie for the win!
