2 cookies = 1 yellow container
So there is a GREAT recipe in the Fix book that I love for oatmeal cookies with chocolate morsels. I modified it a little today, as I didn't have any pecans, and I haven't been to the grocery store in awhile. This makes 16 cookies, and 2 cookies equal 1 yellow container!
1 cup old fashioned rolled oats
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp sea salt
1 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate morsels
Here's the REALLY amazing thing about this recipe. The only thing my little guy can't have in here is oats! This is so rare, I can't even tell you how excited I was when I saw this recipe. So what I did was cut the recipe in half and make two separate batches. One batch had oats, the other had flour that is safe for Logan. If you have a picky eater, or a little one who struggles with allergies and still want to include them, this may be a great option for you. Of course, it DOES include wheat, so keep that in mind!
To top it off, these cookies are SO easy to make, it took me about 5 minutes, even with splitting the recipe up!
First, I gathered all of the ingredients and preheated the oven to 350. I didn't have old fashioned rolled oats on hand, so I just used quick oats, which worked just fine:
|Oat mixture is on the right, flour mixture is on the left|
I mixed each with separate forks (some people use whisks, I'm just not a huge fan, they're hard to clean and a fork does the same thing for me):
I used a rounded tablespoon and two separate pans (I highly recommend parchment paper, we just happened to be out at this time) to scoop each cookie onto the pans (make sure to use safe cooking spray if you're dealing with allergies). Bake at 350 for about 14 - 16 minutes, or until firm.
