Pizookie Party

Last night Jon-Jon had a bellyache, so we laid low and stayed in.  (Not that we had any big plans anyway.)  I was totally fine with staying in because I am always drained on Fridays.  So, I doused Jonny with DigestZen, heated up some soup, and played around in the blog-world.  Seriously how exciting are my Friday nights?

I was reading Ashley’s blog and found her Fudgy Chocolate Chip Protein Pizookie.  She describes a Pizookie as a “deep dish ooey gooey deep dish cookie.”  YUM!  Right then and there, I knew what my Friday night would entail: Pizookie Party.

The recipe is super simple, but I didn’t have any pumpkin on hand.  Instead I substituted applesauce and used real peanut butter instead of PB2 and eliminated the cocoa powder.  (I don’t love super chocolatey things.)  I also subbed flaxseed meal for the flour, added cinnamon, chia seeds, and vanilla extract.  But besides that, I followed Ashley’s recipe. 🙂  I popped the concoction in the microwave and BAM!  I had a tasty and healthy dessert!  Sorry, babe… if you were feeling better I would have shared.  Maybe next time.

It’s like cookie dough deliciousness, minus the raw part.

Staying in meant going to bed early.  Really early.  Is it weird that I actually enjoy crawling into bed at 8:00 p.m. on Friday nights?  Eh, whatever, I do.  It worked out well because I needed to be at the gym right when it opened at seven to crank out my workout.  Yesterday’s workout was a repeat of legs and it was much easier than last time!  Yay for improvement!

Today’s workout was Shoulder and Abs day.
