Peanut Butter Cookies

 

 

Happy, happy Thursday! I can’t believe we are already halfway through winter- where is the time going? It must be a bounce back from 2020 but I really feel like time is going at warp speed! As you all know we are doing renovations in our new Noordhoek house and it is all moving along which is great! I also have had so much fun playing around with decorating our forest cottage. Right now my focus is on creating a spacious luxury suite that floats across birding filled acres of equine stables, vegetable garden and untamed forest. It will be a great space for visitors to get back to nature, enjoy mindful woodland meditations, fireside star gathering, bracing hikes, petting our pigs, goats and alpacas and tucking into fresh eggs from our hens with a cooked breakfast made by our wonderfully talented private chef Emma. On that note, she made some healthier yet delicious homemade nut butter cookies that I think you will love! I love getting your feedback, so let me know what you think by hitting reply (or shoot a message straight to @wellnessfingerprint) after reading. That’s all for me to now. Xx Sego
