Oatmeal to Go Pumpkin Cranberry Muffins

As a homeschooling family, I only have to cram breakfast in while packing lunches and getting out the door on time once a week. We have a weekly co-op, and every Tuesday, amid the scramble, I marvel at all you moms and dads who run the gauntlet of morning activity every day. "Where are my… Continue reading Oatmeal to Go Pumpkin Cranberry Muffins

Raspberry Oatmeal Cookie Bars

In the past several weeks I made two monumentally bad choices. Probably more, but these two will probably haunt me the rest of my life. The first mistake was trying salt n' pepper pistachios for the first time. Please hold your judgement until you find out the other thing I've never had before. Pistachios pale… Continue reading Raspberry Oatmeal Cookie Bars

Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal Bars

My nieces came over unexpectedly today. My gluten/dairy free sweet lovelies. I had just pulled a Blueberries & Cream Pie out of the oven...which, (of course) they cannot eat. It's absolutely unacceptable for my sweet girls to come over to Auntie's house and not get a treat. But what to make? I remembered seeing this… Continue reading Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal Bars

Perfect Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Chocolate is grand, but oatmeal raisin cookies will always be my favorite. Packed with hearty rich flavor and succulent raisins, these cookies are absolutely perfect. Big and thick, soft and chewy. I love them. I'd take these over any other cookie out there. Any day of the week. And twice on Sunday. Odd saying. Anyone… Continue reading Perfect Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Graham-O-Toffee Candy

The "O" is for oats. These treats are to DIE for. Incredibly easy and layered deliciousness. I'm taking them camping this weekend. If they last that long. I love recipes where the finished product seems like more work than it actually took. Shhh. It'll be our little secret how simple these are. Start with a… Continue reading Graham-O-Toffee Candy

Apple Oatmeal Cookies With Brown Butter Frosting

I'm pretty conflicted about sharing this recipe. On the one hand, the cookies taste delicious. They are kind of like an apple crisp cookie. They have chewy oats and sweet apples with a hint of cinnamon. Delightful. On the other hand, I'm pretty sure the recipe was missing a key step. Chilling the dough. My… Continue reading Apple Oatmeal Cookies With Brown Butter Frosting

Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Waffles

It's time for me to fess up. I adore oatmeal raisin cookies. I know they get no love and, when compared to chocolate chip they are the wallflower of cookies. But I love them. These waffles have all the flavor of plump sun-kissed raisins and hearty oats, AND you get to top them with butter… Continue reading Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Waffles

No Bake Energy Bites

My husband recently brought home some chocolate from Israel. His co-worker brought it back from a trip. I was intrigued by the packaging. Instead of a caloric count on the back, the label read "energy". I love that. Food = Fuel. Sometimes I forget that the food I eat provides energy to my body. These… Continue reading No Bake Energy Bites

Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies

There's a girl I know. She bakes a lot of wonderful things. She says these are her favorite cookie. If, of all the delicious things she creates, these are her top pick, they must be awesome. I had to try them for myself. But just one. I'm selling the rest tomorrow at our garage sale.… Continue reading Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies

White Chocolate Oatmeal Cranberry Cookies

I generally do not like raisins in my baked goods. Oatmeal raisin cookies are pretty much my one exception. However, once I substituted white chocolate chips and dried cranberries for the raisins in this recipe - the plain old raisin variety pretty much bit the dust. These cookies are just how a good cookie should… Continue reading White Chocolate Oatmeal Cranberry Cookies
