White Chocolate Sunflower Butter Cookies

On my quest to eat better, I have made many changes in my life. I’ve decided that there is no way that I’ll be able to keep sweets totally out of my diet.

And that’s okay.

I will also still have my Starbucks on Saturdays-white chocolate mocha and I cannot be separated. Besides, after a week of being super duper good with my meals, one cup of overly-expensive-but-worth-it-coffee isn’t going to ruin anything. : )

I like to eat my treat (usually chocolate) while watching my favorite shows. Some of you have admitted to your secret of being a reality show junkie like me. Do you watch Bravo tv? I could watch it all day long-except for when they throw on an actual movie. Why do they do that to us?

Just give us reality all day!

My list of recent favs:

Tone It Up

Courtney Loves Dallas

All of the Real Housewives (New York coming soon-yay)

I hope they still keep on Jeff Lewis and the Million Dollar Listings because I miss those.  Do you watch any of these shows?

Here is a cookie that I can feel a little better about because it’s made with sunflower butter and my son could actually eat since he’s allergic to nuts.

It’s a win-win for everyone!
