Snack Attack – Chocolate PB Cookies

Afternoon!

I’m coming to the end of my second trimester in this second pregnancy and I’m constantly, relentlessly hungry. Al the time.

So far though, I’ve eaten relatively well during this pregnancy, save for the 6-12 weeks period where I had ‘morning’ Sickness but never actually threw up, just feeling sick in the evenings until it went at around 15 Weeks – during that time all I wanted was salty, fatty foods!

Continuing the healthy trend, I’m always on the look out for healthy variations of my fave snacks. This week it was Cookies.

I have a thing for chocolate oats at the moment so I decided to test out Meridian’s  new Cocoa Peanut Butter in some Oat Cookies.

The result was immense! Even hubs liked them and he rarely likes my healthy treats…he’s of the mind that if you’re going to eat a cookie, eat a PROPER cookie 🤣

They took less than 5 mins to prep and 15 mins to bake with no fuss whatsoever. 👌🏾
