These were so good. Like really really good. Taste just as good cooked as the batter tastes good (maybe even better!!)
Last week, my sweet tooth was majorily misbehaving. Typically it ranks about an 8 on a scale of 1 to 10 of how bad it is. Last week, it had to have been at least a 13. Sometimes I can calm it down with a small piece of dark chocolate, or a little bit of brown sugar (yes, i stick my spoon in the brown sugar bag and eat it by itself, judge me), but none of my usual solutions worked last week.
So I made cookies. And they really were sort of healthy cookies, I promise!! I found a lovely recipe on another food blog, the healthy everythingtarian (whose concept on food is quite outstanding), and modified it a bit.
Here’s what you will need:
1 1/4 cups wheat flour
1 cups quick oats (or whatever oats you have on hand)
1/2 t baking soda
1/2 t baking powder
1/2 t cinnamon (more if you like cinnamon, and i do, so i added more)
dash of salt
1 c packed brown sugar
5 tbsp butter
1 t vanilla
10 or so strawberries, pulsed a few times in the fp
1 c shredded coconut, pulsed a few times in the fp
1/2 c chocolate chips
Prehead your oven to 350 degrees.
Sift (or food process if your sifter was thrown away b/c a bug decided to take up residence in it) the dry ingredients.
In a separate bowl, combine the sugar and butter until creamy. Add in your egg and vanilla. Once this is all combined, add in your dry ingredients slowly. Once that is combined, fold in the strawberries, coconut, and chocolate chips.
Form medium sized balls with the dough (after you have eaten several clumps of it) and pop in the oven for about 14 minutes. I left mine a little gooey and they were delicious. Typically Wes gets a little fussy if I use whole wheat in things (he thinks he can taste a difference). But this time he had no idea I had used whole wheat. Muahaha 🙂
His brother Michael liked them also.
