One of my favorite comforting foods to eat is a bowl of Coaches Oats, laced with cinnamon,dotted with raisins, swirled with peanut butter and topped with a dusting of flaky sea salt. I can eat this at any time of day or night and be completely satisfied. This weekend, I decided to try to make a cookie with these ingredients–although, I am a bit of a dark chocolate fiend when it comes to cookies, so I dropped in some Ghiradelli’s 60% dark chocolate chunks and omitted the raisins (much to Elliot’s chagrin–he wanted raisins. I will make them again for him–with the raisins.) With upcoming entertaining and holiday cookie exchanges, this is a great recipe to try!
These have no added oil or flour, so if you use gluten free oats, they can be enjoyed by those with dietary restrictions. These are unbelievably good right after coming out of the oven–let them cool for about 10 minutes first, though! They are chewy and creamy with all the right flavors in one perfect bite, plus, they are hearty and satisfying enough so that one goes a long way. Aidan actually tried to pass one off for breakfast this morning. I hope you enjoy them as much as we are.
