Sharing Smiles, a Cookie, and Some SunButter

Sharing Smiles, a Cookie, and Some SunButter


Hey hey! Happy Friday!

I meant to do a cool Flat Kitty Friday dance post like I wrote about here.

But, life is hectic and this week flew by. I didn’t do anything with Flat Kitty. (Even though I was tempted to try to get him to dance behind Bob the other day. How cool would that have been with those socks and everything?)

So today, instead of a Flat Kitty Friday post, I have some things that are making me smile these days and a little SunButter giveaway.


First here’s the things that are making me smile.


Spring smelling hand soaps in every room of the house.


These cute flowers outside.



My same breakfast I’ve been eating every day this week (a whole wheat bagel thin with egg whites and sugar free jam).


My go to lunch lately of a roasted tempeh Flatout wrap sandwich with kale chips.



The fact that even though I burn my roasted broccoli slaw the majority of the time, it’s still mighty tasty topped with marinara and served with a cheese less sandwich (inside the sandwich- Smart Balance, garlic salt, garlic powder and nutritional yeast).



These NuNaturals products that I won from my friend Sarena’s blog.


I can’t wait to experiment with them and try out some of the fun recipes.



Coming home from the gym to find these Healthy Bites my dear friend Lindsay made for the boys.


And after letting the boys shove a couple in their mouths before bed,


making sure to sample all the flavors for myself.


I already want more. They are delicious.

(Hmmm….I think it might be time to not have the boys wear their Christmas pajamas anymore and for me to do something about my dry hands and nails. That sure isn’t making me smile.)


This video and recipe for my pumpkin protein dough.

Then topping the pumpkin protein dough with SunButter.



Speaking of SunButter, I had almost forgotten about this cookie until the other day. Shucks, when I remembered it, it sure made me smile.


STUFT SunButter Oatmeal Cookie

1/3 cup oats

1 tablespoon whole wheat flour

1 tablespoon SunButter

1 tablespoon applesauce

1 tablespoon nondairy or low fat milk (I use almond or soy milk)

¼ teaspoon baking powder

¼ teaspoon vanilla

1-2 packets no calorie sweetener (or 2-3 teaspoons regular sugar)

Cinnamon to taste (optional)



Combine all ingredients together in small bowl.

Form into large cookie on baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

Bake at 350 for 10 minutes.

Note- You can sub in any other nut butter (or prepared PB2) for the SunButter. Feel free to add chopped apples, dried cranberries or chocolate chips if you really want to smile.



Okay, now it’s your turn to share and smile.

Not only do we put SunButter on pretty much everything over here, but SunButter also supported us in our race for Amelia back in November and they’re located in North Dakota (which just so happens to be where Grandma D is from). I like to say the STUFT family and SunButter are pretty darn close. So close, in fact, that they sent this last week for me to give to a STUFT reader.


Pretty darn cool huh?

All you have to do to enter is leave me a comment here telling me something that’s making you smile today (besides this giveaway- that’s a given). He he.

For an additional entry you can tweet the following and leave a comment telling me you did:

“Need a smile today? Winning a jar of @SunButter4Life from @stuftmama might help. http://stuftmama.com/2012/03/30/sharing-smiles-a-cookie-and-some-sunbutter/

I’ll pick a winner at 8:00pm PST Sunday, April 1st.

Woot woot! Have a good one!


Um, as a side note, I just need to tell you that I have some really fun stuff to giveaway next week. Like REALLY fun! I can’t wait! Talk about smiling.

    What’s making me smile today at 5:35 a.m. is the fact that I didn’t burn my oat bran this time! Haha, it’s the little things that make me smile. 🙂 Oh, and my dogs makes me smile when he looks up at me with his big puppy eyes so he can try to scam more food out of me. He makes me laugh!

    I also tweeted about this giveaway. Thanks! Have a great last Friday of March. 🙂

      STUFT Mama says:

      Oh I would love that. Hike, protein cookies, healthy bites…… and then some wine. 🙂 He he. I can’t even tell you how fast those bites were gone. Funny that you told me I could store them in the freezer. Not a chance around here. 🙂

    I have been addicted to Sunbutter for the past year and am thinking of starting a support group, although admitting it’s a problem would mean a decrease in consumption. Not happening. Great giveaway! My extra smile is just because it’s Friday and I’ve worked for 11 days straight. Smile!

    Krystle says:

    What made me smile today was when I went on a run, I saw a father running on the other side of the road, pushing his little boy in a stroller. When I am older and have kids of my own, I would like to do that. It seemed so enjoyable and peaceful especially on a day like today when the trees are just fully bloomed and the weather is not too chilly.
