After baking at 325 degrees for 25 minutes let homemade trail mix bars sit and cool before cutting them...I say this because I was not patient and tried to cut into it right away and we had some wonderful crumblies to munch on, but once they cooled they cut well and held together well.

Finished product...oh so good!

Chocolate Malt-O-Meal Cookies

Standard

 

What happens when you run out of chocolate in your house (both Bakers chocolate & cocoa powder!) are almost out of flour, plus you’re craving chocolate?  You do another cookie experiment and end up with chocolate malt-o-meal cookies 🙂

 

Chocolate Malt-O-Meal Cookies

2 eggs

1 tsp vanilla

1/2 tsp sea salt

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/4 cup olive oil

1/4 cup honey

1 cup chocolate malt-o-meal dry (maple malt-o-meal would probably be yummy too)

1/2 cup unbleached white flour

1/2 cup whole wheat flour

Combine eggs, vanilla, sea salt, baking soda, baking powder, olive oil, honey and malt-o-meal…let sit for 5 minutes then add flours.  Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.  Drop dough by spoonful on ungreased cookie sheet.  Bake for about 9 minutes.  I made large cookies so recipe made 18 cookies all together.  The malt-o-meal adds an interesting texture to the cookies that some people may not like, but we thought it was wonderful…kind of like chocolate corn bread texturally.

Coffee Chocolate Cookies

Standard

Coffee Chocolate Cookies

2 eggs

2 tbsp instant coffee

1 cup organic sugar

2 ounces semi-sweet bakers chocolate

1/4 cup olive oil

1/2 tsp sea salt

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp baking powder

1 cup unbleached flour

Mix eggs, instant coffee, sugar and olive oil together well.  Melt bakers chocolate.  Slowly add melted chocolate to egg mixture whisking continuously as you add chocolate.  Add salt, soda, powder and flour.  Let dough rest for about 10 minutes.  Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.  Lightly grease a cookie sheet and drop cookie dough by spoonfuls onto sheet.  Bake for 9-11 minutes.  Cookies will puff up while baking and then collapse when you bring them out of the oven, making for a wonderfully soft and chewy cookie (we enjoyed ours with small glasses of Silk…but I am sure they will also be great with coffee).  Makes about 2 dozen nice sized cookies.

Needless to say, these cookies aren’t as healthy as some of the other cookie experiments I have done…so I was somewhat hesitant in posting nutrition facts, but here they are:
