Okay folks, stop whatever it is you are doing, drop whatever item you have in your hand (unless of course it's a phone food, in which case eat it quickly and follow these instructions.... and if you do you will find yourself in pure bliss :)

 Find yourself a bag of raw mixed nuts (I will allow you to post-pone this post for the next time you're at the grocery store if it is currently a random hour of the day that would not elicit a trip to the store)

These ones if you want to be twins :
 Chuck said bag of nuts into a food processor and blend and blend and blend and blend and blend... and blend once more, until smooth (this does take quite a while so patience is key! Also, ear plugs :)

 Scraping down the sides is also necessary for consistent smoothness.
 While everything is whazzing up, grab a few jars (sterilised)
 And stuff em' full of that delicious nut butter (have a taste test too because it will be slightly warm and entirely scrumptious!
 Then realise that you have an annoying amount left over and retrieve another jar:

 Fill it a quarter full with remaining nut butter (I full on considered just eating the remainder from the processor but eventually reasoned with my crazy self that there was a few too many spoonfuls left!!
 Pop jars in the fridge.
 Wake up the next morning and crave cookies
 Begin what can only be described as the process of making one of the most delicious breeky's ever by pouring 3/4 cup rolled oats, 2 tablespoons oat bran, 1/2 teaspoon chia seeds, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon and 1 tablespoon raw carob (sub in for cacao if you prefer) powder into a bowl and mix to combine.

Microwave 2 tablespoons of your amazing home-made nut butter and two tablespoons of almond milk in a small bowl for 30 seconds and then combine with dry oat mix.

Form into balls (any size, but I chose to make two BIG cookies :), flatten slightly on a tray and bake at 180 degrees celsius for around 15 mins (you'll smell them when they're ready!!)

Remove from oven and devour.
 I chose to make one cookie with my home-made nut butter and the other with bought peanut butter and guys.... whilst the peanut cookie was good, you have no idea how amazing this home-made nut butter is in cookie form!!
 There ain't nothing like cracking open a warm fudgy cookie!
 I also made some cherry 'ice cream' prior to cookie making that sat in the fridge hardening up for around 40 mins:

 It was simply 1 frozen banana + a handful of frozen cherries whazzed up until smooth:
So, yeah, do this now and you will be left with this:
 One of the best cookies ever!

So that was my Saturday morning adventures, how about you?

What did you have for brekky?
How do you like your cookies? I'm a soft, chewy and fudgy cookie fan!
Ever made your own nut butter? Do you find that it is 10000x better!!

 I hope you all have an awesome weekend, relax, have fun and, if you follow the commands of this post, eat something delicious!! Bye for now friends! :D
