I had a BIG craving for salty-sweet stuff. And halt! I know these don’t have sprinkles but I was admittedly trying to fulfill a craving, and stumbled onto something definitely delicious.
If ever there was a cookie I’d pinned, bookmarked and revisited over and over and over before actually committing to the labor involved, this is it. When I tell you the number of site views I must have contributed to this recipe post, oy. It’s soaring somewhere near 30x, that’s for sure.
Just a little detour to show you how I’ve been doing and what I’ve been up to. I went to Whole Foods yesterday and grabbed some snacks for a trip. I saw a sign (cue Ace Of Base) and what do you know? A vegan mini muffin company with muffins for super cheap! That’s not a common sighting. I picked up a few of them in various flavors to try them out while I’m recovering from a crazy workweek.
Let’s be honest, vegan foods are not always good emulators of non-vegan counterparts. Sometimes it’s a texture thing, sometimes it’s a taste thing in general, and sometimes the whole thing is ‘off’. That can be a problem with mock-foods. To me, that’s okay. It just means I’ll eat more plant-foods because I know what I’m getting myself into. Plant foods usually trump plant-food-based products nutritionally and usually, they taste better, too. But, every now and again you have something that fits a certain flavor expectation and you really appreciate it. Enter, Phoney Baloney’s coconut bacon.
Since I love all things involving sprinkles, I decided to incorporate them into a cookie to complete the fiesta vibe I look for whenever I indulge in a dessert. Which, quite frankly, is on the daily. Indulgence status: nullified. I am made mostly out of sprinkles, cakes, and cookies at this point.
