- Sometimes, you just can’t decide. I was recently at home with a sweet tooth and a pantry full of goodies, and I couldn’t decide if I wanted an oatmeal cookie, a peanut butter cookie, or a chocolate chip cookie. I mean, who can choose?
So I created the Frankencookie. The best parts of all three cookies, rolled into one giant, soft, sweet — and not drastically unhealthy — snack.
(makes about a dozen large cookies or 16-18 small ones)
- 3 cups oatmeal, quick-cooking or old-fashioned
- 1 cup creamy peanut butter
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup coconut oil
- 1 1/2 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 cup light brown sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 2 teaspoons honey
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/4 cup shredded coconut
- 1/4 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
Preheat oven to 325. Mix together the oatmeal, flour, brown sugar, salt, cinnamon and baking soda. Slowly add the coconut oil, peanut butter, eggs and honey, and mix well until completely blended. Then add the coconut and chocolate chips (and the walnuts if you are choosing that option).
Form the dough into balls (makes about 12 large cookies or about 18 small ones) and bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.
Thanks to coconut oil instead of butter or oil, and brown sugar and honey instead of granulated white sugar, this is even a *relatively* healthy cookie.
