The Cookie Jar

July 13, 2012

Who stole the cookies from the cookie jar?

Wasn’t me! Then who!?

Overnight oats in a cookie jar! Made with one of the Frog Hollow peaches (which was SO sweet and delicious!) and some Groovy Granola on top.

My coffee concentrate (which I made with the same ratio but maxed out the french press: 4.5 cups to 1 cup of grounds) lasted me all week. Since I’m headed out of town today, I filled my jar with the last of it – all concentrate today!

Coffee-3

I have a few things left to do and then I’m hitting the gym, the shower and then the road! Headed to Virginia Beach for my college roommate’s bachelorette weekend!

Loved the cookie jar story when I was little! Cookie butter is the more mature version HA!

OIA(Cookie)J! Fun post title.

The black coffee concentrate next to the black-labeled (cookie)jar makes for some handsome pictures.

Holy smokes, that is some dark coffee! You should be wide awake all day! :) I’ve been obsessed with peaches this week and now that I think about it, all 3 of my meals yesterday involved peaches! Sounds like a great weekend ahead. Have fun at the bachelorette!

It’s decaf : )

I was wondering if it was- I was getting all excited that you had found some new up-and-coming research that allowed pregnant ladies to drink tons of coffee. Dang.

Drink it, yes. Tons, no :(

I forgot that little rhyme! I had the crunchy Biscoff spread the other day and I’m addicted! YUM!

My husband eats so much Cookie Butter that I get to enjoy OIAJ often. :)

I love the TJ’s Cookie Butter. It is sooo amazing!!!

15 Laura @ Sprint 2 the Table July 13, 2012 at 8:49 am

Ohhhh… I love when I get to make overnight oats in a Biscoff jar. Cookie Butter OIAJ should be referred to to just as “Epic.” They deserve a single name. Like Cher.

I’m officially jumping on the ‘make oats in a peanut butter jar’ bandwagon!

It makes me feel good to know that whenever I get pregnant I can still enjoy coffee. I must remember that there’s always decaf! Sometimes I think in my head “I want to get pregnant, but what about coffee???”

Reply

18 KathEats July 13, 2012 at 10:17 am

The research says you can still enjoy a little real coffee – I had a few cappuccinos and things over the winter. Just not more than a cup or so a day

I’ve never had cookie butter before but it sounds addicting and soo yummy :)

Have a wonderful weekend!

Oh, VA Beach! Looking forward to the photos – we’re thinking of taking a weekend trip from DC there. I’m new to VA (I’m in NoVa though) and the east coast, so all this “stuff” is new to me.

MIssy, the NC Outer Banks are only another hour beyond VA beach from NOVA too!

I love oats in the cookie butter jar! It’s ALMOST as good at oats in a nut butter jar, if only the cookie butter had some crunchy texture to it….I’m thinking they should add chunks of cookies in there!

23 Ashley @ My Food 'N' Fitness Diaries July 13, 2012 at 9:20 am

yummm! i’m sure that OIAJ was packed with deliciousness! i don’t think i’ve ever had an OIAJ in a cookie butter jar – i need to try that!

I just love your spoons! I hope to collect utensils like that one day!

I’ve wanted to try cookie butter for so long but they don’t have it by me lol it sounds good!

26 Kimberly July 13, 2012 at 9:35 am

Cookie butter is all over the blog world lately. I still haven’t been brave enough to buy it. I know I won’t be able to handle having it in the house!

27 Lauren @ Oatmeal after Spinning July 13, 2012 at 9:43 am

Overnight oats in the the cookie butter jar are the best, ever.
Have fun in VA Beach… and don’t feel guilty if you go to bed earlier than everyone else. :)

28 Susan H. @ The Food Allergy Chronicles July 13, 2012 at 9:47 am

Your breakfasts in the ‘nut butter’ jars are always the most tantalizing for me! How yummy! Waiting for ‘Sweet Georgia Peaches’ that are hopefully coming our way…a guy sells them from his truck! Had them last year…oh my they were good!

I so need to get my hands on some of that cookie butter! I have a few peaches that need used up and I was thinking in the form of overnight oats, sounds refreshing with this heat!

Reply

37 Hope @ With A Side Of Hope July 13, 2012 at 2:06 pm

That cookie butter sounds yummy! I definitely need to pick up a jar the next time I’m in TJ! Have fun at the Bachelorette party! Mine is next weekend! I cannot wait! :)

38 Amanda @ flecksofgreen July 13, 2012 at 3:43 pm

Yum! I love it when the Overnights fill to the tippy top of the jar!

39 KathEats July 13, 2012 at 3:45 pm

That was the giant peach!

I love cookie butter! But unfortunately, I looked at the label and ingredients list and I don’t think I could call it real food. BOO!

Reply

41 Jo Williams July 13, 2012 at 8:29 pm

No Trader Joe’s in my area, but I was in Lexington KY few weeks ago & tried the cookie butter – oh my, very addicting! Love it on graham crackers, but I may never buy it again. No self-control,so I better stick to my homemade almond butter, which I can control portions on.

Yum, yum, yum!

I’m trying to break my bagel addiction and get back to morning oatmeal, and buying some cookie butter this weekend might be the ticket. A little bit sure goes a long way in some overnight oats. Where would I be without food blogs like this one for these great ideas???

I just wrote down on my grocery list to get some Trader Joe’s Cookie Butter when we go there.

Yum cookie butter. And that coffee concentrate looks intriguing too. Is there any particular reason you switched?

47 KathEats July 18, 2012 at 1:44 pm

So my iced coffee would be ready first thing in the AM!
