What I’m Lovin’ Wednesday: Cookie Butter Coffee

On a recent trip to Trader Joe’s the Mr and I discovered Cookie Butter
Folks, this stuff is life changing!
I posted about it on instagram and apparently y’all think so too!8195631294b411e299e522000a9e28c4_7
It’s like gingerbread cookies ground up into a thick spread, similar to the consistency of peanut butter but very smooth.  You can use it to top your waffles, ice cream, or dip your celery, pretzels, apples and really I could go on and on (just ask the Mr, he hears me ramble on about this continually.  I have even been bringing it up in class with my students lol).
Ok so for lent I gave up dairy…..seriously that was a huge sacrifice for me and it really provided me with more opportunities to lean on Him, which was the point so I chose a good thing to eliminate.
But, since I couldn’t have any dairy products in my morning coffee, I had to get creative since I’m not a fan of black coffee.  When I discovered cookie butter I knew exactly what to do. 
I decided to add a little dollop, about a 1/2 of a teaspoon, of cookie butter to my hot coffee since it is dairy-free.  It melted in with my hot coffee and added a fabulous flavor with minimal calories to my morning coffee! Yum-o!DSC_0325-2
Holy moly this stuff is delicious!
You’ve got to try this cookie butter coffee and tell me what you think.DSC_0331-3
Yes, if I were you, I would bet money that you will see some more recipes with cookie butter around here soon lol
Anyone else try this stuff recently?
What do you dip in your cookie butter?
I was not paid for this review; everything written is of my own opinion.

How have I not thought of this? I have gotten my office hooked on cookie butter - did you know that they now have the crunchy kind? Apparently it is more gritty than crunchy, though. Good for you on the no dairy - are you glad to have it back in your life?

"UM SAY WHAT" when I saw this post.

This stuff sounds delicious! I wish there was a Trader Joes around here...I super miss that place!

Wow! What a great idea. I only put milk in my coffee, but recently found out that milk (well, dairy) is the root for a lot of my skin problems. Trying to cut back. Looks like I might be making a trip to Trader Joe's!

If I drank coffee, I think that would be an awesome flavor together! Ha! However, I adore a white mocha, any day, any time! =)

I am just finishing up my first jar, and I LOVED it! I mostly only ate it on apples that way I could trick myself into thinking it was all healthy.
