Leftover Halloween Candy Cookies
Is your halloween candy still hiding away in that top shelf of your cupboard, taunting you every night saying eaaatttt meeee. It was for me ;)
I decided to use up these little chocolate bars and put them into a thick and chewy oatmeal cookie. They were SO good. They reminded me of something from my childhood but I still can't quite put my finger on it (probably a smarties Subway cookie tbh - don't judge me).
So instead of eating four chocolate bars a night then throwing yourself a little pity party (just me?) I highly recommend using up your leftover Twix, Aero, Snickers, Mars, Smarties, or whatever else you please and chuck them into these cookies. You won't regret it! Makes 6 Giant Cookies
1 cup flour 1 cup thick rolled oats 1/4 tsp baking soda 1/4 tsp baking powder 1/4 tssp salt 1/4 cup of Melt Organic Butter 1/2 cup and 2 tbsp brown sugar 2 tbsp canola oil 1 tsp vanilla 2 tbs coconut milk
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium sized bowl, mix together flour, oats, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Set aside. In a large bowl, using a stand mixer, cream together butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Add in canola oil, vanilla, and coconut milk and mix until smooth. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix until combined, the texture should be pretty thick, enough so you can ball each cookie and it will easily hold its shape. Using your hands (or a 1/4 - 1/3 cup measure) take batter and roll into a ball. Place on baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Press down and shape until it is roughly 4 inches wide and 3/4-1 inch thick. Bake for 7-8 minutes until they just begin to brown on edges. Remove from heat and let cool.
