This month’s Mo Mail brought two new books in the Elephant & Piggie Like Reading series: Cookie Fiasco and We Are Growing! These books hit the shelves September 20th! What is the series all about you ask? Best friends Elephant and Piggie introduce kids to their favorite books – brought to life in original stories created by contemporary children’s book authors and illustrators. And of course fun and funny like Mo Willems is known for!
Fiasco.Cookie Fiasco is all about four how friends need to problem solve when there are only three cookies! Our kids are loving this one and of course with every reading they’re asking for one thing… cookies, of course! Earlier this Summer we had a picnic with friends and Nicole brought our friend favorite – this chocolate chip cookie recipe! We thought we had found the best of the best, and then our friend Kim brought these. We had to share this amazing Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe — they are incredible!! Double that recipe so you don’t run into your own cookie fiasco. 😉
Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 Cup Brown Sugar
1 Cup White Sugar
1 Cup Butter; room temperature
1 tsp. Baking Soda
1 tsp. Baking Powder
1 tsp. Vanilla
1 1/2 tsp. Salt
2 Cups Oats
2 Cups All-Purpose Flour
1 pkg. Chocolate Chips; I prefer Milk, but any variety works well.
Optional: Nuts, coconut, etc.
Cream together brown sugar, white sugar and butter. Add eggs, mix until combined. Add baking soda, baking powder, vanilla, and salt. Mix together.
Grind 2 cups oats in a blender to make a chunky flour. Add oat flour and white flour and mix until combined. Fold in chocolate chips and/or any other accompaniments.
Spoon onto a greased baking sheet. Bake at 400 degrees for 8-10 minutes.
