I have a treat for you! And something to top it with. Isn’t that great how life works out? First you need to start off with the treat. I made some delicious cookies, known around our house as Butter Bombs. I’m sure you can tell from the name, these are super healthy cookies. (sarcasm button on.) This is a recipe out of a family cook book, and it is a favorite around our house. It is a variation on a chocolate chip cookie and they don’t last long around here!
Mix it up:
- 1/2 cup + 3 tablespoons butter
- 1 egg
- 1/2 tsp. vanilla
- 1/2 tsp. water
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 2/3 cup flour
- 1/2 cup oats
- 8 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips
- Chopped pecans (optional.) Although I don’t know who would want to ruin a perfectly good cookie with nuts, blech.
Preheat oven to 375. Cream butter, egg, vanilla, water, sugars, salt, and baking soda. Mix until light and fluffy. Add flour one cup at a time, stirring until just mixed. Add oats and chocolate chips. This time we also added some butterscotch chips, a personal favorite of mine.
