WOW Chocolate Chip Cookies

Sometimes you find a recipe winner in the least likeliest of places.

Like here, for example: I was running low on sugar and happened to be in Ocean State Job Lot, a local discount store here in Rhode Island, that has one of the most extensive selections of Bob's Red Mill Products I think I've ever seen.  I grabbed a small bag of evaporated cane juice to get me through until my next trip to the big grocery store. On the back of the package was this cookie recipe that really caught my eye:

See? And it was already vegan. I even cut it off the back, and stuck it to the fridge so I wouldn't forget! 

Fast forward several months later... We were craving something sweet and I looked over and remembered my little clipping!

For those of you that can't read the microscopic iPhone photo, a web version of the recipe can be found here, along with a very interesting article on the milling of white vs. whole wheat flour.

I thought WOW Cookies was an appropriate name because WOW, they tasted great, were made with whole grain flour and oats, and they were just the right amount of sweet.  Next time I might try using coconut oil in place of the margarine.  And, WOW as in Bob's recipe says "make 2 dozen cookies" but in reality made closer to FOUR.  We had cookies coming out of our ears... Which meant: all the more to share with my co-workers! ^_^

  2. Well, I guess all I can say here is wow! They look awesome and this is the third cookie post I've read from yesterday now.

  3. The cookies look gooood. It's always the package recipe that rocks! Like the episode of Friends where Monica is trying to recreate Phoebe's grandmother's recipe... and then Phoebe says the g-ma got it from her ancestor Nestle Toulouse.
