So, I am bit of a Cookie Monster.  I can admit it.  I loooooove cookies.  It's more of an unhealthy obsession than love really... the kind of situation where I would follow them from a distance and take pictures of them sleeping, if cookies slept that is.  Let's just say if cookies weren't inanimate objects, healthy boundaries could be a problem for me, LOL!  But luckily for me, they are a less scary obsession than many I could have, so my obsession continues along unchecked.

I recently made a delightful batch of cookies, which I have dubbed "Chewy Trail Mix Cookies".  They are all the best parts of trail mix (like craisins and chocolate) without the down sides (all the seeds and bark and whatnot).

You will need:
1 cup earth balance
1 cup organic sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 tbs ground flax seed mixed with a little water
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/4 cup unbleached flour
1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 cup oats
1 heaping cup semi-sweet choc chips
chopped pecans (just dump some in, more or less however much you like)
1 cup craisins

Heat the oven to 375
melt the butter
mix the water and flax, then toss everything else in
scoop out spoonfulls on a cookie sheet
bake 10-12 mins till golden brown and delicious

These are best served with ICE COLD almond milk, for dunking!  See?


  1. My dad keeps trying to convert me to soy milk, I think it tastes like dirt... maybe I will try almond milk.

  2. Almond milk is a lot creamier an tastier than soy, imo.
