We learned a lot in that class, relaxation breathing methods, to never ever get an epidural, that c-sections are the greatest of all evils and doctors are out to cut you open every chance they get and lots of other fun stuff**.
But I think looking back that the best thing that I learned in the class was how to make 3 ingredient peanut butter cookies. And we all know I love recipes with as few ingredients as possible.
We made some friends in the class too- the 2nd best thing about it- one of those friends brought these cookies to one of the meetings (because we had snack time every week, 3rd best thing) and I have never forgotten the recipe, partially because she wrote it down and it is still in my recipe box, but also because I love them, so so much.
I made them today and did a bit of a modified version that I give to you now.
3 ingredient peanut butter cookies:
- 1 cup peanut butter
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 2 egg whites
Blend and bake @ 350 for 6-8 minutes and DO NOT over bake. Makes about 12 cookies.
The time that my friend made these she used all natural peanut butter with the oil on top and that was great too if that's what you're into. Also, the recipe calls for regular sugar and 1 whole egg. When I made them I cut the recipe in half, used a little less powdered sugar and only 1 egg white for the healf recipe. You can used regular or powdered sugar- pick your poison, although it will change the consistency of the cookie, it tastes great either way. You can either use 2 egg whites or one whole egg, again do what feels right.
Just make sure you enjoy them, that's the most important thing.
**I kid about the class, but it really was a great learning experience and gave lots of great tips for natural birthing, which have come in very handy for us.
