Shaved Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

Shaved Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies, recipe I am experimenting with cookies to bake for the local police department; I am so happy that they found my bike I wanted to do something nice for them. I am experimenting with cookies and so far so good. The shaved chocolate oatmeal cookies were adapted from Giant Chewy Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies. I left out a few things and will put the recipe up soon. I used my country boy as a taste tester and he enjoyed the cookies, but did not like the fact that I used flax eggs apparently he did not like the nutty taste (he will get use to the flavor). I am assuming the police officers won’t either so I am going to stick with eggs and real butter (I used earth balance). I guess I should not push my obsession with vegan baking on those who are not willing to eat (well just yet) :).

Smoothie Challenge Day 7: Raspberry Oatmeal Smoothie

Raspberry Oatmeal Smoothie Oh how I love smoothies but I think summer is officially over and it is time to transition into fall. Well that’s what I was saying to myself when I tried my very tart raspberry oatmeal smoothie this morning. My smoothie had 1 cup of raspberries, ¼ cup cooked oatmeal, and ¾ cup unsweetened hemp milk.

My Tribute to Summer: Oh summer I will not miss the hot weather that seem like I was burning in hell. I will miss your variety of juicy luscious berries, melons so sweet and delicious. I will miss your sexy exotic fruit that you brought me: Pineapple, mango, passion fruit, peaches, plums, grapes, the list goes on. Fall is now here and I bid you good bye I will just half to wait until next year where we will be reunited again…
