This recipe was inspired by my love for oatmeal-chocolate chip cooking and my craving for additional flavors + textures. I wanted a cookie that was crunchie, oaty, chocolaty, salty and sweet. So I took a regular oatmeal cookie recipe and had some fun with it. 

Always remember, the greatest gift you can give yourself is the ability to think and provide for yourself.

 

 

What you need to know

Prep: 15 mins
Cook: 12 mins
Total: 55 mins
Additional: 28 mins
Servings: 42
Yield: 3 1/2 dozen (depending on how big you roll them lol)
Options: Cut the recipe in half and try out your favorite add-ins. You don't have to make the full batch or go with the flavors I like. Make them your own!

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cups butter, softened
  • 1/2 cups coconut oil 
  • 1 cups brown sugar
  • 1/2 cups white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1-2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cups gluten-free flour 
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt (only if you don't use salted butter)
  • 1 1/2 cups gluten-free quick-cooking oats
  • 1 1/2 cups gluten-free crisp rice cereal
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup salted caramel chips
  • 1/2 cup raisins 
  • 1/2 cup walnuts

You can add any alternate add-ins that you prefer like white-chocolate, macadamia nuts, no nuts at all, cranberries, etc. It's all up to you. Just have fun with the flavors.

 

Directions

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).

Cover 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. 

In a large bowl, cream together the butter, coconut oil (it's ok if it's melted), brown sugar, and white sugar until smooth. Beat in eggs one at a time, then stir in vanilla. Combine the gluten-free flour, baking soda, and salt (if using unsalted butter or straight coconut oil); stir into the creamed mixture until just blended. Mix in the gluten-free quick oats and crisp rice cereal. Then fold in walnuts, and chocolate chips salted caramel chips and raisins. Drop by heaping spoonfuls into your hand and form a ball. Place onto parchment-lined baking sheets.

Bake for 10-12 minutes in the preheated oven. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

Store in a container.

 

 

PINK•E SPOTLIGHT

I want to tell you about an amazing global organization that is dedicated to lowering the pain of children through the teaching of martial arts as a therapy.

They are Kids Kicking Cancer!

The organization began in 1999 with ten children at Children’s Hospital of Michigan and is now empowering over 7,000 children in 90 hospitals and program locations in 7 countries, including here in Canada. 

The most unique and powerful element of the model is that each child becomes a teacher to others. Kids Kicking Cancer’s mantra is Power Peace Purpose. When asked what is your purpose? The children yell out, “To teach the world.”

Right now we are all dealing with COVID19 and social distancing but, cancer doesn't care if there is a virus in the air. The program is offered free to the children but, relies on our support. If you can, please consider donating.

We are all in this together!
