After my workout, I mixed up a protein shake (muscle milk light) and gobbled it down while checking emails and doing some work on the computer.
I headed out on the road, and really didn’t feel much like packing anything. So I stopped at Subway and grabbed a Veggie 6-inch sub on Honey Oat Bread…it reminded me of the wheat bread that you get at the Cheesecake Factory. Yummm.
Now the one thing that I feel like I HAVE to share with you are the cookies that I have been hoovering all week. Whole Wheat Surprise Me Oatmeal Cookies.
3/4 Cup Butter
1 Cup Brown Sugar
1/2 Cup White Sugar
1/4 Cup Water
1 Teaspoon Vanilla
2 Cup Whole Wheat Flour
1 Teaspoon Salt
1/2 Teaspoon Baking Soda
3 Cups Surprise Me!
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. With a mixer, combine butter, brown sugar and white sugar until smooth.
2. One at a time, mix in the egg, water, and vanilla. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, salt and baking soda. Then mix the two together.
3. Now! Stir in your surprise me! This is your oats, chocolate chips, raisins…anything you can think of. I chose:
1 1/2 Cups Rolled Oats
1 Cup Chocolate Chips
1/2 Cup Craisins
4. Spread the cookies out on a greased baking sheet. Bake them for about 13 minutes, or until they are golden brown on top and have a slight brown rim around the bottom.
These were unbelievable! They take less than 20 minutes to put together and you can change them up every time. I literally had one of these after every meal this week. So I had to share. They are that good. Writing this is making me want to whip up another batch….
Well let me know if you try them! And you mix them up!
Tonight…Bacon has a bath in store for him…he’s been smelling up the room lately.
