Attack of the cookies!

So I came home today to find my cookies from the swap I did with Primary Consumer had arrived! I was excited, but a little worried because the post office had put a big red stamp on it that said it was damaged in transit. My boyfriend was worried that perhaps some hungry postal worker opened it and munched on them. I proceeded to open the package and it was alright, it was just the actual mailing container that got scrunched.

The real comedy was trying to get the cookie tin opened. I tried. I failed. The boy tried. He failed. I got a spoon to jimmy it open. Failure. Sam is pacing and huffing (He is such a sensitive hound!). I get a knife. Failure (no injuries). The boy tries once more. Victory is his.

Inside the tin of tribulation are the most wonderful cookies! They are a carob chip made with whole grains and flax.



I immediately scarfed one down for quality control purposes. It was amazing. It tastes so good; sinful and healthy at the same time. The boy scarfed one down too. Sam looked hopeful, so I gave him a Sam cookie (Wellness treats) to make him a part of things.

I suggested then that we take pictures of the cookies right away, so on the long trip from the kitchen to the dining room, we both had to have another one. After such grueling exercise, one must refuel.



Apparently little Sam really was in the mood for a refueling too...



In the end we allowed ourselves 2 1/2 cookies a piece...for now. I am going to have to hide them if I want to eat any more of them...

Thank you, Primary Consumer!

Hehe, I'm glad you liked them. I was worried that maybe you didn't like carob, but I see that wasn't a problem. Sorry about the tin, I don't know what happened to it. I loved your cookies too, by the way! I hope you don't mind that I posted the recipe on my blog.

I hope you like them, they are a personal fave of mine as I grew up with these!
