We can't wait for Christmas thanks to Joy & Judy's Chocolate Espresso Cookies!
Chocolate Espresso Cookies
1 cup almond butter
3 oz strong espresso, hot (*see below for a tip)
2 tbsp ground flax seed
1/3 cup good quality, unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 T vanilla extract1/2 cup organic cane sugar*
1/2 tsp baking soda
Sprinkle of sea salt
1/4 cup good quality chocolate chips or chopped dark chocolate *can use coconut sugar
*Tip - Joy & Judy used 1 1/2 - 2 teaspoons of Espresso instant crystals in 6 tablespoons of hot water, which make up 3 oz of espresso....perfect!!! Taste it! They didn't want theirs too strong.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl combine almond butter and espresso. Stir in flax, cocoa powder, sugar, baking soda and sea salt and vanilla extract until it all comes together. Stir in chocolate. If mixture is a little wet (this will depend on your almond butter), place batter in fridge for 30 mins to set. Roll dough into 1 tbsp sized balls and place directly onto the cookie sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Let cool on sheet for 10 mins before removing from sheet. This step is important, do not attempt to remove them from the sheet before 10 minutes is up. Store in an airtight container for up to 3 days, or make a double batch and freeze them!!!! Note: Recipe has been tested using organic white cane sugar and coconut sugar. Both are fabulous!

Art classes allow young people to express themselves in important ways. Unfortunately, arts education is disappearing from schools in America; since 2008, 80% of school districts have cut funding for art programs. Simultaneously, student creativity scores have dropped. Fortunately, there are people and groups out there fighting to keep arts education present and vibrant in schools across the country.
Tennis is a popular and fun pastime, in that it requires mental focus and athletic ability. But due to the cost of equipment and court time, lots of kids never get the chance to try their hand at the sport. Leaders of the Junior Tennis Champion Center (JTCC) recognized this cost challenge, and decided to do something to change it. In 2009, JTCC launched a Community Outreach initiative, with the goal of introducing underserved kids in Prince George's County, MD, and Washington, DC to tennis. And the program has become an indisputable success.
