Oatmeal Nut Butter Cookies with “Chocolate” Chips and Almonds

Posted May 24 2010 6:04am

Last night, I was watching the series finale of “Lost” when I thought to myself, “Boy, I really ought to update my blog.”

(Seriously, though, can we take a minute to discuss how terrible and pointless that was?  I feel like I’ve wasted six years, plus 2.5 hours of my life to watch a yellow lab run through the jungle.  Yes.  Vincent the dog was the highlight of the experience for me.)

But really, I did want to feature a product that I picked up at Marshall’s Fenway Farm Stand over the weekend and an equally great recipe I found on said product’s website: Once Again Sunflower Seed Nut Butter .

Since I’m already quite fond of peanut butter, I’m thrilled to have found this slightly healthier alternative: 5g of protein and 3g of dietary fiber in two tablespoons.  The most fun to be had, however, is browsing the “ Recipe Book ” section of Once Again’s site, where I discovered these delicious and hearty cookies that are also, I might add, absurdly easy to prepare.

Ingredients

1 cup White Whole Wheat Flour

1/3 cup Sunflower Nut Butter

1/2 cup honey

1/2 cup sucanat

1 cup quick cooking rolled oats

1/3 cup fat-free plain soy milk

2 Tbsp unsweetened applesauce

1 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 tsp sea salt

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 cup Tropical Source Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips

1/2 cup almonds

Preheat oven to 425ºF.

Combine the first ten ingredients into a thick batter.  Add the chocolate chips and almonds, mixing well.

Drop heaping tablespoons onto a greased cookie sheet…

…and bake for 8 minutes.  Allow cookies to cool on a wire rack.

See?  Easy.

Yields about 32 cookies.  The original recipe can be found at http://www.onceagainnutbutter.com/Dessert_Recipes.html .
