Organic Oatmeal and Chocolate Cookies

I know I said I’m on a mission to find the best Peanut Butter Cookie recipe BUT, so what if I make a couple pit stops with other types of cookies along the way.  Maybe I just need to cleanse my palate, if you will.  On to yummy Oatmeal Cookies!!

I tried to make them somewhat healthy.  Okay, perhaps “healthy” is a bit of a stretch for cookies, but I tried.  Here goes nothin’…

2 1/2 Cups of organic quick or old fashioned oats, uncooked.
3/4 cup of organic wheat bran
1 cup organic raw sugar  — As I’ve stated before I feel that this type of sugar is the lesser of evils, it’s less processed and
that’s always a good thing.
2 Organic grass fed, free range eggs — They are slightly larger and taste awesome, try ’em.  It’s worth the extra money!
1/3 Cup organic extra virgin coconut oil
1 Tsp of vanilla
2 Tsp cinnamon
1 Tsp baking soda
A little bit of dark chocolate — I used Green & Blacks Organic Dark Chocolate. It’s 70% Cocoa.

All I did was mix the liquids first, then put in the dry goods.  For the liquids you can use a beater or just some arm muscles to stir it all up.  Add in the sugar and oats and all the rest.  As for the chocolate, I used about 1/4 of the bar, but feel free to add more.  Next time I know I certainly will 🙂  Chop it up, some fine slivers and some chip size.  Mix it all up one final time and throw on a non-greased cookie sheet.  Fire up your pit to 375 degrees and let these bad boys soak up the flames for about 10 minutes.
