TV Appearance & Special Guest Star Today

Pretending to be a celebrity today - will be back tomorrow - COMPLETE WITH VIDEO FOOTAGE!

Helping me out today is my new friend and Special Guest Star Pamela.  She's quite the baker, and I think you'll agree that the goodies she's brought in her basket today are OUTSTANDING!

I am so glad to be here to talk about Healthy Desserts.  I make healthy cupcakes and cookies for my family and community.  It just started out as a hobby and then people started asking me about my cupcakes and cookies, and then Pamela's Heavenly Treats was born.  I am so excited to be able to showcase these healthy desserts, because then I know that what I am making is good for everyone.

When you hear the word "HEALTHY" people cringe and think "YUCK", but if my kids are eating every single cookie and cupcake that I make then I think I am doing something right here.  All you have to do to make your favorite dessert recipe healthy is substitute a few ingredients.  And since I am doing a gluten free recipe today, we only have to use 4 ingredients.  Yes, you read it correctly. This is the easiest, moistest, most peanut buttery tasting cookie that I have ever had.  I made this cookie for my homeschool co-op Valentine's Day party and they were gone in about 10 minutes.

So here we go - I always make double batch so I can get 30 cookies.

1 cup of Natural Peanut Butter (the kind with the peanut oil on the top)
1 cup of light brown sugar
1 egg (fresh brown eggs)
1tsp gluten free vanilla (or homemade if you make your own)

Preheat oven to 350.  Add all ingredients to your mixer and mix until well incorporated.  Using a small scooper , roll like a ball place on parchment paper lined baking sheet and then press down with a fork. Bake for 10 minutes, let sit for 2 minutes, transfer to wire rack. Enjoy!

I have enjoyed being here on Suburban Prairie.  You may come by my blog to see my healthy cupcake and cookie recipes at Pamela's Heavenly Treats .

Thanks so much, Pamela - we were so glad to have you today!  I hope everyone takes a few minutes to go see your wonderful treats that are up on your blog...

Enjoy your cookies!
