And so did you all, apparently, since you are getting a second post today. TWO posts in ONE day?!?! It’s like a Cookies and Crafts lottery win up in here! Obviously exciting and obviously necessitating the use of so.many.capital.letters. and ALL KINDS OF !!!!!!
Technically, I didn’t win. BUT, my cookie recipe, made up in my head at the early 7 am hour yesterday morning WON!!!
It won the cookie taste test that we gave in my freshman bio class. The competitor was the Nestle Toll House recipe (with oats added) and I WON!!!
After seconds were offered of both versions, there were none of my version left, but there were tons of the other version!!
The freshman here are shattering all kinds of stereotypes. They picked a sugar free(ish….if not for the chocolate chips) and gluten free cookie over butter and real sugar!!!
While I can’t send you cookies directly, I can do the next best thing. I can give you the recipe.
It’s a recipe that I wasn’t even planning on posting. I wrote it down out of habit, but I didn’t take photos (also becoming a habit, as I delve further and further into the bad blogger category). Luckily they looked like these other cookies I did take photos of.
“The kids will love them” Chocolate Chip Cookies
- 175 grams margarine (about 3/4 cup)
- 225 grams erythritol (about 1 1/4 cup)
- 50 grams Stevia Baking Blend (about 1/4 cup)
- 2 1/4 tsp vanilla
- 2 large eggs
- 275 grams oat flour (about 2 1/4 cup)
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 bag chocolate chips
Cream together the margarine, sugars, vanilla, and egg. Add the dry ingredients, a bit at a time, until fully incorporated. Chill for 30 minutes.
Bake at 325 for 10 minutes. Cool on cookies sheet about 10 minutes then transfer to wire rack. Store in airtight container, but really you should just eat them right away.
Not to toot my own horn, but I think these are my best cookie recipe yet.
The students didn’t believe me when I told them that they were both sugar and gluten free, but several of them asked for the recipe.
Like I said, I WON!!!!
