Sometimes i'm actually so lazy on the weekend that i don't get around to eating until it's nearly lunch time. bad, i know. but i'm just sleepy and not that hungry right away and usually just enjoy basking in the sunshine in the backyard with my (fur) baby jessie moomoo and isaac over a cup of coffee.
Then I made these mini salted chocolate cookies and felt they were the most perfect accompaniment to the weekend sloth situation. so now we enjoy the sun in our sling chairs with our kitty cat and cups of coffee that we dunk our little bites into. it's so perfect, i'm upset i didn't think of it sooner.
i will admit that nothing will compete with teddy bear biscuits dunked in a cup of instant blend 43 coffee with milk (shocking habit..thanks dad) but these little cookies are far less processed, not as sweet and much higher in fibre than their store-bought counterparts so i'll take them any day! and that is called having your cake and eating it too!
