There are many different buzz words that explain this phenomenon: flexitarian, semi-vegetarian, and week day vegetarian; where you only eat meat on the week-ends. But anyway you want to say it, you are cutting back on the meat you eat. Some do it for health reasons, animal rights, the environment or all of the above!

Reese's Pieces Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies


1 stick unsalted butter, softened
1 cup peanut butter,
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
2 tablespoons honey
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 1/3 cups flour
1/3 c cocoa powder
1 tsp baking soda
2 1/4 cups Reese’s Pieces, frozen

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream butter, peanut butter, sugar, and honey until smooth. Add vanilla and eggs, one at a time, and stir until incorporated.

2. In a separate bowl, sift together flour, cocoa powder, and baking soda. Slowly add dry ingredients to the peanut butter mixture. Stir in the Reese’s Pieces. It’s mandatory that you should eat a few to make sure they are safe.

3. Drop or roll into balls onto cookie sheets lined with parchment or a silicone mat. These cookies do not spread much, so only an inch apart is necessary.

4. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes. Allow to cool for at least two minutes before removing with a spatula to a wire cooling rack.
