Yes, I am supposed to be monitoring my wheat and sugar to see if it could help me with the congestion issues I have, but that is a self-diagnosis. I decided that before I give up or modify all that yummy goodness, I would go to see an expert. So later this month I have an appointment with a holistic doctor…I will let you know how that goes.
But for right now, I was craving sugary goodness last night and decided to make some chocolate chip oatmeal cookies that I saw on this blog called the “bakingsheet”.
Here is the recipe straight from the blog (with my slight modifications in pink):
Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
(from The Frog Commissary Cookbook)
Preheat the oven to 350F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper (I used wax paper and it worked out fine).
In a large bowl, cream together the butter and the sugars until mixture is light in color. Beat in the eggs one at a time, followed by the milk and the vanilla extract.
In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Either by hand or with the mixer on low-speed, gradually beat the flour in to the sugar mixture until just incorporated.
Stir in the oats and chocolate chips by hand.
Drop 1-inch balls of dough onto the cookie sheet, placing about 1 1/2 inches apart so they have room to spread.
Bake at 350F for 10-13 minutes, until golden brown at the edges and light golden at the center.
Cool on baking sheet for at least 1-2 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
Makes 4 dozen.
You can also freeze the dough by wrapping it with saran wrap or placing it in a container and thawing it out when you want to make more.
