Is it a cookie? Or an ugly muffin? February 21, 2010Posted by oatmeal in Non-Oatmeal Stuff, Recipes, Snack.
I dunno–what do you think?
They look like cookies but soft like muffins? But who cares ’cause I like the way they taste I haven’t baked in a while so this was fun!
Check out my festive photo decorations:
Why do I keep coming up with festive things once Christmas is over?! What the hell, brain?!
But anyway isn’t it exciting that I’m updating? Too bad I couldn’t even get oatmeal into this post either!
Anyway, I got the recipe from Susan V but I don’t have balsamic vinegar or anything so it’s just regular chocolate cookies–but with ginger–exciting huh?
Spicy Cocoa Cookies [?] – 11 to 12 cookies
1 cup whole wheat flour
0.5 tsp baking soda
0.5 tsp baking powder
1.5 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
2 tbsp fruit jam of some flavor [too lazy to look it up...wildberry?] or more sugar
1 tbsp cocoa powder
0.25 cup brown sugar
0.33 cup water or milk/soymilk
1 tsp ground ginger [optional]
1. Mix all together–I never really got into the “add wet into dry ingredients” thing–I am a rebel!
2. Preheat oven to 350F.
3. Spoon batter onto baking sheet/pan/etc. Make them as thick or thin as you like–make ‘em thinner if you want a more biscuit texture
4. Bake for 10-11 minutes.
Next time I’ll definitely add some oats in place of some of the flour because I’ve been neglecting the mission statement of this blog. And because life without oats is an empty and fiber-less life.
I can’t stop taking pictures:
Yay for Reading Week huh? Maybe I’ll actually get around to blogging more!
