Philly Cheesesteak Stuffed Peppers

I absolutely love the flavors of a Philly cheesesteak. Soft, toasty bread, tender beef, and melty cheese. Mmmm… I first had Philly cheesesteak when we visited my aunt and her family in Philadelphia. Let’s just say it wasn’t a grain-free or sugar-free trip. When we got back home I wanted to find a way to enjoy the flavors …

Chocolate Chip Corn Flake Cookies

Chocolate Chip Corn Flake Cookies

Packed with rich chocolate chips and crisp Corn Flakes cereal, these Chocolate Chip Corn Flake Cookies are soft and buttery and the perfect cookie to have on hand when your sweet tooth is begging for something deliciously different. 

Chocolate Chip Corn Flake Cookies

Have you heard of breakfast cookies? There are no shortage of breakfast cookie recipes on the internet and they’re often made with wholesome ingredients like oats, Greek yogurt and a variety of nut butters. I am a big fan of healthy breakfast cookies but in this postpartum phase of life, I must admit that the cookies I’ve been consuming for breakfast look a lot more like soft, buttery cookies with crispy edges, speckled with chocolate chips and crunchy Corn Flakes cereal. Let’s just pretend the Corn Flakes in these cookies make them breakfast appropriate, mmmkay?

Chocolate Chip Corn Flake Cookies

No judgment, please. The newborn baby phase of life = Anything goes.

There’s something about postpartum life that has me craving chocolate chips around the clock. We always have a bag or two of them in our pantry and they call to me when my sweet tooth starts raging. I love them by the handful, sprinkled on top of a spoonful of peanut butter (#alldayeveryday) or paired with salty cashews and my favorite Paleo coconut crisps but there’s no denying that chocolate chips were basically made for chocolate chip cookies.

Chocolate Chip Corn Flake Cookies

And chocolate chip cookies were made for me… especially the current version of myself who is surviving on minimal sleep and who gets great joy out of biting into a Chocolate Chip Corn Flake cookie, no matter what time of day.

9 a.m.? Why not?

10 a.m.? A little lunch appetizer.

3 p.m.? The perfect afternoon pick-me-up.

10 p.m.? Pre-bedtime nursing fuel.

Any time of day is a good time of day for these bad boys!

Chocolate Chip Corn Flake Cookies

I’ve loved Chocolate Chip Corn Flake cookies for years and thought they were relatively popular but it wasn’t until I began recipe testing my own version of the cookies that I realized maybe they aren’t as beloved as I thought. Ryan said he had never heard of them nor tried Chocolate Chip Corn Flake Cookies in the past so you better believe I took it upon myself to immediately rectify this atrocity. I’d like to think we made up for lost time because I’ve now made five batches of these cookies in four weeks. Can’t stop, won’t stop.

Chocolate Chip Corn Flake Cookies

As we bit into our billionth Chocolate Chip Corn Flake Cookie, we started chatting about other cereals we might be able to successfully incorporate into cookies. I have visions of Cinnamon Toast Crunch snickerdoodles, Honey Bunches of Oats oatmeal cookies… so many possibilities!

But, before I get too ahead of myself, let’s stick with this classic cookie that may or may not actually be a classic cookie depending on whether or not these cookies are actually as popular as I previously believed them to be. Popular or not, they’re worth a try, especially if you’re a fan of texture in your cookies. The crispy, not-too-sweet Corn Flakes contrast perfectly with the rich chocolate chips and the sprinkle of sea salt on top of the cookies at the end just takes them to the next level.

Chocolate Chip Corn Flake Cookies

If you give these cookies a try, I’d love to hear what you think! I also appreciate it so much when you take the time to leave a rating for my recipes so thank you to those of you who take a moment to leave star ratings after you give a PBF recipe a try. I hope you enjoy these cookies, my friends!

    Time Management for Top Performers

    By Leo Babauta

    In my coaching practice and Fearless Mastery mastermind group, I work with some high performers. These are people who have excelled at something in their lives.

    They’re always looking to take themselves to the next level.

    And they’re always wanting to make the most of their time.

    The key to how to make the most of your time, if you’re a high performer, is finding high-impact ways to leverage your limited time.

    Let’s take a look at some key ideas here.

    Our Time is Limited

    I find it important to reflect on death, on a regular basis. Just the simple fact that we will die someday … and we don’t know when.

    This helps us to remember that life is short and precious, and to resolve to make the most of this gift.

    As a high performer, you can make a big impact on the world, doing good and serving people in a meaningful way, with the limited time you have in this life.

    But it’s important to do so by not frittering away time with busywork. We tend to go to the easy tasks, keeping busy by doing a bunch of little things. You could spend a year like this and not make much progress on anything meaningful, just staying afloat.

    Let’s remind ourselves regularly that we have limited time each day and each week.

    We Have Too Many Things We Can Do

    Our time is limited, but our tasks are seemingly unlimited.

    On any day, we have more things that we could do than we can actually get done. We’ll always finish the day with undone tasks. This is always true — every year, we have way more options than we can possibly take on.

    With that in mind — that our time is limited, and we have more tasks/projects than we can possibly do — this brings home an important question:

    How do we make the most of our limited time?

    More specifically: What’s the best investment of your time right now?

    What high-impact task can best leverage your time right now?

    And the only way to answer that is to answer these questions:

    1. What do you want to accomplish?
    2. What impact do you want to have?
    3. What would be meaningful to you?

    If you don’t know the answers to these questions, you can’t know what would be the best way to leverage your time. You can’t know which tasks to choose, because they’re all about the same.

    Get Clear on What Matters

    What do you care most about accomplishing? And why?

    What do you want to do with this year? Quarter? Month? Week?

    Write out the answers to those questions. Answering those questions is the thing you can do right now that would have the highest impact.

    Then answer:

    What do you want to do with this day?

    Getting Good at Focus

    Once you’ve gotten clear on what matters, the rest is execution. And you’re already pretty good at that.

    What do you want to accomplish today? Get clear on that in the morning — or even better, the evening before. Make a list of 1-3 things — what key tasks should you focus on to leverage your time today?

    Then in the morning, focus on those high-impact tasks. Use your time like a limited resource that it is: take it and make the most of it.

    Focus on the things that matter. Clear everything else away, and don’t act on the urges to put off the important stuff.

    Notice when you’re turning away from the high-impact tasks, and train yourself to turn towards it instead.

    Batch the smaller stuff (like email and messages) and give that some time later in the day to focus, if that’s important to your work.

    Train yourself to focus, and train yourself to always know what you should focus on.

    And then connect to why it’s meaningful.

    This is how high performers can train to get the most out of their limited time, and make a meaningful impact on the world.
