Baking Project #2 Revealed

Ha – I guess I forgot to post my other baking project from last weekend, so here it is!  :)

Nick loves cookies. And so do I. We decided to try to make some healthier cookies, so I looked up some recipes and we ended up making our version of these Oatmeal Brownie Cookie


Check out that chocolate chip – looks like he’s trying to bust out of the cookie  :)


My modifications were:

 – I ended up having to add a little milk to the batter to get it to come together

– We did 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips and about 1/4 cup walnuts

– Instead of using just regular sugar and vanilla extract, I used this!




Vanilla Sugar!!! Beadie gave this to me when we met a few weeks ago, and I knew I need to use some  – this stuff smells and tastes a.mazing.

Needless to say, these cookies did not last long in our house….although, it only made about 25 cookies so I guess there weren’t too many to begin with  :)



I figured I should finally post these since I’m hoping to bake some more healthy cookies tonight! Don’t worry – I’ll try not to make you wait a week to the next batch!


The church fellowship was good and I think people liked my couscous salad – it was completely gone. I’m glad I made a batch of couscous just for us.

Alright – off to finish laundry, clean, finish dinner, and hopefully bake before posting dinner!

It’s snowing here!!! I’m hoping it will stick.


  1. Those look so good! I have been tossing vanilla beans into my sugar canister for years now, and I’m always happy when I take the lid off and get a whiff of the vanilla goodness. Ah! So good!

    We are being threatened with massive snow here in DC, but I’ve only seen a few little flurries so far. I guess we will see what happens! I hope you get the sticky snow you are hoping for! :-)

  2. ooh brownies and cookies together? count me in!
