    My room has stuff scattered all over too. So hard to keep it tidy! :p
    I like the idea of buttery goodness smothered over these cookies, yes I do.

    yay for passing the rental inspection!!! they were always such a hassle 🙁

    Well done on the inspection and clearing your room for some frenetic dancing. My suggestion? Skip the pop tunes and go for one of the tracks (15 to 20 minutes) from Miles Davis’ Bitches Brew. He was the master of polyrhytms (simultaneous use of two or more conflicting rhythms) so you can have your feet tapping to one rhythm and your hips and hands moving to another rhythm. You can’t beat that! (You might need to hop into some OCY Cookies first to give you the energy). Oh! And the monkeys and jellyfish would be proud of you.

      Bitches Brew, yeah!

        Way to go Emma. I can just see Hannah krumping frenetically to Pharaoh’s Dance and even heel clicking in Spanish Key. I’d love to see that!

    Eeeek, Cherry and Cacao Nibs here too! I think the universe is trying to tell me something …

    Congrats on the rental inspection. Can’t say I was sorry to say goodbye to them 🙂

    I really, really don’t miss rental inspections. Actually I rented for so long that still even now it doesn’t really occur to me that I can just bang a nail into the wall if I want to. Or god forbid paint it. Your baked products look intriguing- you must have a lifetimes supply of dried cherries!

    Yum these sound so good, and a teensy bit similar to a recipe I’m posting tonight too! LOVE dancing while I’m cooking. Usually to song I can kareoke to. Adele is a must 🙂

    Cherry and cocoa nibs?? Sign me up! As for dancing, I’m super keen on We Are Young by Fun. and Tokyo by The Wombats. Those songs always make me wiggle.

  8. Kari @ bite-sized thoughts

    These are definitely my sort of cookies. Almond butter and all 🙂 And I’m delighted you have room within your room, for such things make a world of difference to me and dancing space is clearly worthwhile space. Also, I’m impressed you wear high heels. That makes you an Adult in my mind, and also someone with better feet skills than me 🙂

    What gorgeous pics you took of the food. Looks insanely delicious!

  11. Vien @ We Dare Food

    My room is NEVER clean 😛 My brother scolds me for not cleaning my room. tsk tsk I’m a terrible big sister.

  12. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    I have a bag of cacao nibs that I really need to get through! Sounds just about perfect! 😀

  13. Kath (My Funny Little Life)

    I’ve never tried cocoa nibs, but a friend of mine is going to give me some soon. Can’t wait to try them! But I think that I won’t be able to make such fancy things like your cookies with them. 😛

    I love nailing a rental inspection 🙂

    Cocoa nibs? Fancy fancy cookies 😉
    Never had them before but these delish cookies will give me a chance to try them!
    Yum, thanks!

    Oh, the dreaded inspection! Glad you sailed through the ordeal but isn’t it an enormous amount of work tidying up for these inspections. I’m the same when my mother comes over to the house. I’ll spend three days frantically making sure the house is in order and everything is put away and all is neat and tidy and my husband thinks I’m completely mad. But after all that effort (of trying to impress my mum about what an excellent home-maker I am) I rather enjoy the neatness and order the tidy-up brings. Shame it doesn’t last!

    Good for you and housemate, Hannah. Inspections are never fun. Good luck with keeping the piles filed.

  18. Daisy@Nevertoosweet

    YAY low fat healthy cookies and the fact that you’re using my new favourite Chobani yoghurt it’s practically perfect hehe 🙂 Thanks for sharing!! I can’t wait to try this recipe and best part is hehe I have all the ingrediets to make it at home! But i don’t have Cacao nibs can I just use chocolate instead? 😀

  19. Miss T

    OO delish – where did you get the nibs from please?
    Telephone – Lady Gaga. Not pretty.

    *Of course* you nailed your house inspection. I doubt there’s any tests out there that you don’t nail, you high achiever you. 😉

  21. penny aka jeroxie

    I love the plain ones too! And anything with cocao nibs

  22. ATasteOfMadness

    This looks absolutely mouthwatering!! I don’t even know where to buy dried cherries, but I will find out 🙂

  23. JohannaGGG

    ooh chocolate yoghurt – I had been sure you were using cherry yoghurt – esp because they don’t look full of chocolate yoghurt – but then I have only ever brought king island chocolate yoghurt (maybe it is a cream dessert) and it is too good to put in cookies so what would I know! You can send some my way to taste just to check if you like 🙂

  24. Heidi - Apples Under My Bed

    I love that you baked with plain chobani. These look so so good!!! Yay for dancing around like a crazy person to music. Mine is usually pop music like Taylor Swift. Usually = always.

    I’ve been dancing about to Sugar Ray lately. They may have made my favorite 90s pop songs. Shoop doop de doop.
