Why I Love This Recipe

Last night I turned what was supposed to be a healthy indulgence into an umhealthy disaster.

Never, under any circumstances, put your finger near the blades of the immersion blender. I did this and accidentally hit on. Painful cooking lesson that ended with a trip to the ER to get “sutures.”

Me in the ER after stitches at 2am last night.

Don’t worry the cookie mix was spared. Of course before all this I finished making the cookies.

Priorities people!

Everyone loves cookies. If someone tells you they don’t like cookies–even healthy ones–you know they are lying.

A lot of my friends are staying away from gluten.

While these cookies are probably not gluten free, they were made with the intention of having something sweet in the house that wasn’t too unhealthy.

Here is what you will need for my Choco-Oat Cookies!


Ingredients You'll Need

1 cup fake Peanut Butter (Trader Joe’s)
2 eggs
1 1/4 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tablespoons of Agave (natural sugar replacement)
6 oz chocolate chips (I used extra dark. It’s better for you)
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup I can’t believe it’s not butter
3 cups rolled oats


Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl mix together the sugar, agave, butter and beat until creamy. Watch your fingers if they are near an immersion blender! Add eggs, vanilla and baking soda and mix. Add in fake peanut butter. Then stir in oats, chocolate chips and nuts. Add teaspoons of dough on a lightly greased cookie sheet (olive oil spray) about two inches apart. Let bake for about ten minuted. Remove from the oven and set out to cool (or put in fridge for a short amount of time).


Tastes awesome alone or if you are if you are feeling decadent–broken up and sprinkled over frozen yogurt.


Questions, Comments & Reviews


Dear Sherbeth We are all entitled to our opinions on the definition of the word "uber." If you don't like the recipe, don't bake em. Simple as that. -B

I'm confused. What's so uber healthy about fake peanut butter and 3/4 cup of sugar? Create a cookie using healthy ingredients and maybe then I'll be impressed. Hae you checked the ingredients on that 'fake' peanut butter? ...hmmmm...cane sugar, rice syrup, tapioca syrup, (sugar, sugar, and more sugar), etc. Think I'd rather have the natural, full-fat peanut than all that sugar filler garbage. Nothing uber about this recipe.
