Since we all know that I’m not much of a baker, I’ve decided that I can no longer use that as an excuse and I’m going to start baking! (At least once a month) Part of the problem that I usually run into is that I always try to make substitutions or make it healthier. So I either need to follow directions exactly or use my Food Science learnings and make sure that the substitution is one that will work.
What did I tackle first???
Montana Whoppers!!! In my quest for a cookie recipe I found these on Caitlin’s blog at Healthy Tipping Point, and then on Meghann’s at The Inner Workings of a College Graduate. They looked SO good and I think are pretty healthy for a cookie! The recipe originally came from Michelle at Taste as You Go.
So with a few changes in the recipe I baked the afternoon away. I used some of Justin’s Maple Almond Butter instead of Peanut Butter and used all brown sugar and some mini chocolate chips because…well that is what I had. Other than those I followed directions exactly! I love the fact that the only ingredients are butter, eggs, sugar, almond butter, oats and chocolate chips!
all mixed together
ready for the oven (i’m terribly embarrassed of that excuse for a pan)
they turned out! miles of cookies
these are delicious! soft and chewy which is my favorite kind of cookie
Not sure what is next on my list so if anyone has any ideas for me, let me know!
