Ah, cookie butter! The Netherland’s greatest edible invention (second only maybe to stroopwafels). For a mere two euros, you can indulge in what is essentially cookies ground up into a spreadable paste. With speculoos (Dutch for this marvelous concoction) a plenty, I just had to use it for baking. And what better use for cookie butter than to make…cookies!?
I used Averie Cook’s delicious Softbatch Cookie Butter Brown Sugar Cookie recipe and was not disappointed.

Surprisingly, I’ve only used cookie butter for baking once before (as the filling in these monstrous Christmas cookie sandwiches).
Any suggestions for more cookie butter recipes? Let’s hear ’em!

I run a lot (like, a whole lot), so I’M ALWAYS HUNGRY. That said, when I first transitioned to a plant-based diet, I struggled with staying full between meals. I had no problem creating delicious vegan breakfasts, lunches, and dinners, but I would often forget about the snacks that fall between. Not having vegan snacks readily available made it so much easier to resort back to my old ways: i.e. binge eating pretzels with Nutella. For those who are considering switching to a plant-based diet (or who just need to switch up their vegan snacking routine!), here are my suggestions for super easy, super filling, and super delicious snacks.
No-Bake Peanut Butter Crisp Balls
Banana Oatmeal Breakfast Bites
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Protein Bars
Cinnamon Kettle Corn
Spicy Sweet Potato Fries
Chubby Hubby Protein Bars
High Protein Banana Peanut Butter Snack
Healthy Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Miracle Cookies
Chocolate Covered Banana Almond Bites
