I’m Running Away From Home


Only joking!  But if I were, I’d tie some of these Monster Cookies up in a red bandana and throw them in my knapsack.

These cookies could stand in for a meal!  Filling, full of fiber – oatmeal, nuts – macadamias and of course some chocolate chips, dark chocolate chips.  They also include natural peanut butter – with very few grams of sugar, and honey!  All in all they aren’t too unhealthy.

Enjoy!

Monster Chippers

Ingredients:
1/2 cup softened butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup + 2 tbsp. brown sugar, firmly packed
3 eggs
2 cups peanut butter
3/4 tsp. honey
1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
41/2 cups regular oats, uncooked
2 tsp. Baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1 cup dark chocolate chips
1 6 oz. pkg. mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup macadamias

Cream butter; gradually add sugars.  Beat well.  Add eggs, peanut butter, honey and vanilla, beat well.  Add oats, soda, and salt, stir well.  Stir in remaining ingredients.  Dough will be stiff.

Preheat oven to 350*.  Lightly spray cookie sheets with Pam.  Pack dough into 1/4 cup measure.  Drop dough 4 inches apart onto cookie sheets.  Press each cookie into a 31/2 circe with fingertips .  Bake for 12-15 minutes.  Centers of cookies should be slightly soft.  Cool on cookie sheets for a few minutes and remove to racks to cool completely.

    “Easily sharable” – there wouldn’t be any sharing going on if I got my mitts on them 😀 I like the one in the top right of the second photo the best… looks all crinkly and lovely.

  4. Great recipe and really nice photos!

    I love the image of running off with a knapsack full of cookies! These look like a good choice to take too. 🙂

    I want to run away from home with you if you bring the cookies.

Make my day - leave me your thoughts!
