Peanut butter cookies!! To drown my disappointment.

This is a quick, easy, cookie.
I didnt know how they would turn out, but I was very pleasantly surprised!!!

Healthy Peanutbutter cookies

1 cup peanutbutter
1 cup sugar

combine then add,

1 tsp baking soda
1 egg

Bake at 350, for 10 min.

The recipe I copied, (found it on Pinterest) claimed only 36 calories per cookie, of course that depends on how big your cookies are! :O)
Very good, a bit crumbly  when warm, which is how I like my cookies. But not to bad when cool.
Next time I make them I am going to do 1/2 cup white sugar and 1/2 cup brown sugar, because I like the taste that the brown sugar adds. They do satisfy that craving! Dont they look great! Big and puffy!!

And drowning my disappointment in cookies, because, my Emma is still really lame after a month. I am now going to keep her in Mickeys stall for the next two weeks. That stall has the smallest outside run, and no step up into the stall. I am beginning to suspect that Emma injured herself going in and out of the stall. She throws so much mud when she comes in, that she has made the step up into her stall a 16 plus, inch, step up. I have plans to get a truckload of hog fuel or large bark to fill it in, but I have to wait until it dries out.
So my plans of riding Emma in the competitive trail competition, July 14th are on the back burner. I am now thinking if I want to ride, I am going to have to ride Easy, until Emma heals.  ((sigh)) It is her left stifle she has injured. I suspect it is a flexor muscle, because it is when she picks it up and forward, that it is hurting her.
Dont get me wrong, Easy is great! I just had my heart set on riding Emma. At 27 years old Easy can still be quite the challenge!! But she is old and getting a little arthritic, she should be in retirement! She does love to go though!
Have one more month until the ride, we will see how things go.


  1. sorry to read this , stifle injuries do take their sweet time healing .

  2. Oh no. I'm so sorry about Emma. I hope she heals soon. Hopefully Easy will be good for you and be easy to ride. hehe!

    Enjoy those cookies!


  3. No fears Lisa, Easy is a good mare. She is the one who has taken both my girls through 4-H and High School Equestrian team. She is a been there done that horse. Worth her weight in gold! If I could clone her I would!!

  4. Yeah Fern valley, so frustrating.
    I just want to ride her!

  5. When my mare had a stifle injury my farrier let me use some easy boot glove boots to help her.


Thanks for visiting my bubblebath of life! Come back soon!
