My mombean has been so inspired by Millie's mombean and the great cooking stuff that she does that she decided that she wanted to make something too. So, when she saw the cookies that she made she wanted to copy her. On Millie's mombean's blog Cooks With Love She posted a recipe for White Chocolate Chip Cookies with Cranberries and Peanuts.
Of course mine had to do her own thing so she made Oatmeal, Dark Chocolate Chip with Cranberries. (no nuts coz she sez nuts upset her tummy) I'll turn over the blog to mombean.
Oatmeal is good for you, dark chocolate is good for you, and cranberries are good for you.
So this is like a health food right?
I like chewie bar style cookies so I put the whole batch in to a square Brownie pan and will cut up after baking. Its easier to bake too.
Here they are all mixed up and ready to go into the oven. (the white stuff around the edge is just the bakers style pam I sprayed into the pan. Its got oil and flour mix together for point and shoot ease.)
Just out of the oven .... Mmmmm Smells so good!
After cooling, I cut into serving size chunks. See all the good Cranberries and dark chocolate chips?
All but 3 of the cookie bars are packaged up and ready for the freezer. Once a week or so I'll put a treat into the lunch I pack to take with me to work. Also, if they are frozen I won't scarf them all down when I'm plopped in front of the TV. I had to eat one right away -- for quality control (that's my story, and I'm sticking to it!) and The other 2... well one will be for my lunch and 1 for TV time tonight.
Psssssttt! Psssst!! Wanna know a seceret?She used a package mix!! Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha! Yeah, she's great baker alright.
Hey, Beezer!! That's not nice. I was gonna tell. Besides we have such a small kitchen that if I were to buy and store all the things to make cookies from scratch and have all the gear like a big stand mixer there wouldn't be any room for Temptations or cans of stinky goodness.
HUH? WHAT??? *MY* TEMPTATIONS!?!?!
Well, you did steal the idea about adding the cranberries. I - I mean thought up, yeah, that's it, thought up the idea about adding the cranberries. Now, that, my loving mombean, was genius!
Happy Memorial Day!
