Sometimes you just need a cookie.
Unfortunately, it appears that most people on jumping on this New Year Resolutions bandwagon and pushing all cookies and crumbs to the side. Well not so fast. I may or may not have pulled a fast one on you and made over some of my favorite cookies that my Aunt Kate makes. Let me know tell…these are sure to please.
The original recipe called for two sticks of butter…uh not so waist line friendly. Over the past year, I have undeniable love for coconut oil. It has umpteen amount of uses. I cannot get enough! Beyond the fact that it can increase your metabolism (um yes please!), it tastes so tropical but not like you just got done eating suntan lotion tropical. Ew. Another sweet obsession I have is maple syrup. I swapped some of the brown sugar, which contributes the chewiness to the cookies, for maple syrup, which contributes a buttery flavor. And since toffee rocks my socks off, I couldn’t cut corners there. Not way. So all the chips went in! Sorry new years resolutions, just some things are non negotiable. Since these oatmeal cookies are practically a metabolism boosting, health food, go ahead and grab another!
