Brownie Cookies from mix; These easy chocolate cookies are made with a boxed brownie mix. These brownie cookies from mix are delicious and so easy!
I never really did get nauseous when I was pregnant. What I got was massive headaches.
I still get massive headaches.
I’ve learned over the years to avoid them by keeping a consistent sleep schedule, limiting my caffeine intake, and keeping myself hydrated, and I’ve learned a few tricks to help me manage the pain a little better, but these things are not a cure. Not by a long shot.
This morning, for no good reason at all, I woke up with a doozey. It was bad enough that I begged Robb to handle the morning routine without me so I could stay in bed.
When I finally emerged hours later, I was headache-free, but had a strong strong chocolate craving.
I nearly drove to the nearest fast food restaurant in the pouring rain for a chocolate milkshake, that’s how strong it was. In fact the only thing that kept me from doing just that was the knowledge that there was a brownie mix in my pantry.
Making cookies from a brownie mix on a heavy headache day is a double bonus. Bonus number one, the obvious one, is the chocolate.
But bonus number two is equally as important. Because you’re making cookies from a brownie mix, they are fast and easy to mix up, and you can do it all in one large bowl with a wooden spoon.
Last time the massive-headache-chocolate-craving-blues hit me hard, I made these gorgeous Salted Dark Chocolate Cookies. Those got the job done, let me tell you.
I was kind of excited also to use a new product I found. The people at Star Fine Foods offered to let me try their new Butter Flavored Olive Oil, and I tried it in these cookies. I’ve never really been one to bake with olive oil, but the butter flavored oil gives a nice buttery flavor, with the soft consistency of oil.
Best of both worlds. Thanks, Star.
(P.S. You can’t get this product everywhere, but I’m almost positive it’s available at WalMart.)
