Tiddlypom

hi there lovelies! today i found something very exciting on the glorious web- the song My Never by Blue October. On Stephanie Meyer's website she has lists of songs which she would listen to when writing certain chapters of the twilight series. Well one of the songs is the previously mentioned My Never, which isn't actually released yet but Blue October played at the special Breaking Dawn concert. Previously you could only hear it via youtube but then I found this delightful website: http://www.playlist.com/. I love, love this song it's so adorable 'specially when you figure out which chapter she was thinking about when listening to it! Anyway I really wanted to share it with you guys so here it is: (he he someone scream I Love Edward part way through! lol! the song is suppose to be from Jacob's point of view)

Oh and also thanks to the gorgeous River from Wing It Vegan,who gave me the idea to bake cookies using the sunflower seed butter i posted bout the other day. Today I decided 'yep, i'm gonna bake me some sunflower seed butter cookies!!'
I based it very loosely on a sugarless peanut butter cookie recipe from About.com. But I changed it so much; I ended up blending together two overripe bananas with 1/3 cup sunflower seed butter, 1 tblsp vanilla extract, 2tblsps molasses & 1 tblsp soymilk then added that to 2 cups homemade oat flour & 1/4 cup wholemeal spelt flour.
on top i added a droplet of sunflower seed butter then baked 'em up for 15mins. They were pretty good if i do say so myself, not very sweet which is a okay by me. The banana flavor was subtle but nice, you could really taste the flavor of the sunflower seed butter most predominantly which is what i aimed for so yay! They looked a little funky, very small and weirdly shaped but oh well, i'll leave you all with another pic of these babies:
Oh and Tiddlypom! Don't know what I'm going on about? Well apparently there is a blogging revolution afoot! Head over to The Vaguetarian Tea Room or I am the Diva for the details and be sure to let me know what you think of their idea (i find it interesting/hilarious!)
Cheerio for now!

Those cookies sound great! I am trying to find nut substitutes and I think I might try that. I'm not sure whether I'm allergic to seeds other than sesame. Thanks for the recipe!

haha, manioc is almost like a potato but it is SO much better. It is actually very common here in Brazil. Before, Brazilians didn'thave potatoes manioc WAS their potato, practically. It's all pretty neat and manioc is one of my favorite foods EVER! haha

Erica said...

Wow! Your cookies look so good, I want to make these for Josh. He loves the sunbutter!

Yes, CPR has changed a lot- 30 compressions to every 2 breaths. It is exhausting!

lesley said...

your sunflower seed butter cookies look so awesome! i love the dollop of sun butter on top. i too love a cookie that's not overly sweet, perhaps i'll have to pick up a jar of sun butter and try these out! they look awesome to me! mmmmmmmmm!

Hayley said...

MMMMM...Your cookies look so nice and healthy. I too love a less sweet cookie, that way I don't feel bad eating them for breakfast. I'll have to try this sunbutter, it sounds too good.

teeni said...

Hey Amira - those look wonderful! I don't like things too sweet either and Sunflower seed butter has its own yummy sweetness. Sounds perfect. Thanks so much for all the linky love here! That was so nice of you! However, I think your readers were a little too distracted by the goodies to pay attention to Tiddlypom! LOL. No matter. It's a fun little silly thing while those cookies look seriously good - I wonder how many you got out of your recipe?
