It started with one of the most stressful mornings I’ve had in awhile. I then had to deal with a “running around like crazy” sort of afternoon. The stress was eased by a much-appreciated visit from my friends. However, their presence at the house didn’t protect me from the catastrophes that awaited me! While we visited in the kitchen there were a plethora of accidents! I knocked eggs off the counter, which fell to the ground and splashed onto my clothes, my cell phone got soaked in water, then it got dipped into oats and was absorbing the mess into every opening …all of this was happening in the midst of the annoying buzz of the oven alarm; I was baking/cooking 2 recipes at the same time, CHAOS! However, the chaos was topped by a rather miraculous and peaceful late afternoon. Remember my stressful morning I was telling you about? Well, in the late afternoon, that stress went away by the blink of an eye. It was seriously a little miracle. All God. I was talking about Him to my friends, during one of our conversations, and I think that He wanted to show Himself to them. He wanted to show them that when people love Him and believe in Him, He will take care of them. I love that! I loved experiencing a first hand miracle. Especially when my friends could tell that the solution to my stress happened because I welcome Him into my life. He is very present in my life and in our household; He loves us. No matter how challenging things may get, it will all be all right at the end. He makes sure of that. I love God! Life would be empty without Him. So yeah, my crazy day (which made me want to cry…twice) was 100% turned around. Everything I was stressing about got fixed. And the crazy part was that I didn’t even have to do any work for the solution to come. How cool is that?! I just had to share that with you guys. There is nothing in life that He is not overseeing and that He cannot help fix. During the kitchen chaos, I had some Lime Coconut Cookies baking, which turned out rather satisfying. My big batch of 20 cookies got reduced to 5-6…hubby inhaled them once he got home from work! Get the full recipe here! Don't let the Truvia in this photo trick you...it's not listed in the ingredients and that is because I ended up using honey instead! 8 Responses Carol September 6, 2012 How much Truvia? Wasn’t listed with other ingredients. Mariel Lewis September 7, 2012 Great question Carol! Sorry for the confusion. I ended up using honey instead of Truvia (I just never changed the picture), so just follow the ingredients list and you should be good to go! Carol September 7, 2012 Thank you so much for the prompt response! I can’t wait to make these! Carol September 12, 2012 If you had used Truvia (I’m using Stevia), how much would you have used? Max September 28, 2012 Just made these…AMAZING. Holly October 8, 2012 Had to add more coconut & coconut flour & used lemons but they are DEE LISH ISH Kiran mudnaney December 14, 2012 I tried these today, and they turned out amazing.. Though I guess a bit more flour would’ve helped, but that’s just for the crispness.. Otherwise in taste it was awesome.. My family loved it.. And to even think of making cookies without wheat flour or rice flour n most importantly sugar seemed impossible.. Looks lik I have a great alternative for my sweet tooth.. And being pure vegetarian I did not put egg.. Still tasted lovely.. Thank you so much Mariel.. Mariel Lewis December 14, 2012 Hi Kiran, thanks for your sweet comment! I am glad you liked these!
