True confession: I really, really don’t enjoy cooking. It’s not for lack of trying, though. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve attempted fun, Pinterest recipes only for them to turn out slightly-above-mediocre. People argue that cooking is creative & you can add your own flair without having to follow a strict recipe. Personally, that has never worked for me. And to people who can just whip something together, I envy you because for some reason I just suck at cooking.
That being said, I love love love baking. I love the precision of baking–if you follow the recipe strictly to a T, it will turn out well no matter what. Being a Type A, this makes my soul happy.
Good news is, it’s fall so that means it’s officially baking season! I made these easy (& healthy!!) pumpkin breakfast cookies the other week and loved them. For all you “just eyeball-it” cooks out there, this baking recipe doesn’t have to be super precise (it’s flexible & will turn out well if you generally follow the instructions), and for all you bakers out there like me, there is some precision and a guarantee that you won’t mess it up. Oh, and they only take 15 minutes to make & they’re gluten and dairy-free. Keep scrolling to find out more.
