Darren is in Oberlin visiting me this weekend!
He arrived Friday night around 9 pm. Since he hadn’t eaten dinner yet, I treated him to a pita pizza, apple, and yogurt. Then, like any totally normal long distance couple, the first thing we did was make cookies!
These oatmeal chocolate chip cookies are totally delicious. Darren even approves of them. I only told him after he’d eaten two cookies that they were “healthified”. He didn’t even seem to notice. The cookies are crisp on the outside and chewy on the inside like any oatmeal chocolate chip cookies should be, in my opinion.
Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
- 1 cup all purpose flour (I used whole wheat flour)
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 2 tbsp unsalted butter, room temperature (I used Brummel and Brown)
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup unpacked brown sugar
- 1 large egg
- 1/4 cup unsweetened apple sauce
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 cups quick oats
- 3/4 cup dark chocolate chips (I used semi-sweet)
Now I am trying to spend the day studying while Darren works on his senior project paper. I’m obviously doing a terrible job staying focused since I’m here writing this blog. Darren seems to be pretty productive though, and I enjoy scolding him when he gets distracted We are planning on going out to dinner tonight and seeing a show I bought tickets to. The show is a surprise though, so I can’t talk about it until after the fact!
Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend!
