I confess, I have absolutely no idea what to call these cookies besides delicious. At first I was going for caramel-chocolate chip, but that’s a bit wordy and does not do justice to how incredible these are. Then I thought monster cookies, since that’s somewhat where the inspiration came from but they did not have any other ingredients in them to make them actual monster cookies (m&ms, whole oats, raisins, etc.). And then I thought, well I think it came from either my mom or sister when they were eating them that they were almost turtle flavored. caramel, chocolate + nuts. Although no nuts. But close enough for me and maybe next time they will have nuts.
So if you can think of a better name for these delightful cookies, please share.
- 1 stick unsalted butter or margarine at room temperature
- 1/4 c grapeseed oil (or any other light oil)
- 1/2 cup organic sugar
- 2t vanilla
- 1t salt
- 2 eggs
- 2 1/4c oat flour (oats ground into flour is what I used)
- 1/2c sorghum flour
- 1/2t baking soda
- 1 cup chocolate chips
- 1 cup caramel bits1. In a small bowl, combine the oats, sorghum flour and baking soda. Set aside.2. In a large bowl, beat up the butter or margarine until it is nice and fluffy.3. Mix in the oil to the butter or margarine until it is somewhat mixed well, and then add in the sugar and continue mixing.4. Once the sugar and butter/oil mixture are combined, add in the salt and eggs.5. Dump the dry ingredients into the wet and stir until fully mixed together. If this ends up being too sticky, you can add some more oat or sorghum flour.6. Once the batter is a good consistency, add the chocolate chips and caramel bits.7. Try not to eat the entire batter as-is… and then take small scoopfuls of what is left and place on a parchment-lined cookie sheet.8. Bake in a 350′ oven for 10-12 minutes, rotating sheets halfway through if necessary.
