Chocolate Chip Raisin Almond Oatmeal Cookies!

I’m so excited! I leave today for my road trip. I got most of my stuff done yesterday, and all I need to do now is pack the cooler, paint my fingernails, (just in case I take a picture of something with my nails in it, ya know) make my playlist, and head out! ImΒ going to D.C., tonight (maybe depending how I am) , New York City tomorrow to explore the city and go to the Yankee’s game, and then up to Maine! IΒ will be in Ogunquit and Wells beach. I’m excited because I’ve never been to Maine, and I’ve heard it’s so beautiful! I have a feeling after this trip, I’ll want to keep going to Maine to explore.

I made breakfast cookies yesterday for the road trip. While I was walking around Trader Joes, I saw little trail mix cookies and they were adorable! It gave me the inspiration for these breakfast cookies. I picked up some extra ingredients and used some of the things I had at home. I was also surprised to see how cheap almond meal was at Trader Joes compared to the $10.00 bag of almond flour at grocery stores. It was only $5.00 at Trader Joes! Now, I won’t feel as bad for using it more.

Add raisins and chocolate chips! You can use any additives in these cookies. I was going to add nuts, but there is already almond meal in the cookies.

Mix well!

Grease a pan and add tablespoon sized drops to the pan. Next time I make these, I am going to shape the cookies before laying them on the tray. Don’t be afraid to roll them in balls and flatten them out into cookies.

I was so happy with how these turned out! The weren’t overly sweet, and I loved the texture of these! Crispy on the outside, soft in the middle! They were so good!

    I’ve lived in New England my whole life, and one of my favorite memories from childhood is visiting Wells during the summer. You’re going to love it! The water is COLD, but no one seems to mind it. Coastal road trips are the best. I’m assuming the pups are staying back with your parents, BUT if they are joining you guys, a visit to Peirce Island in Portsmouth, NH on the way to Maine (the spelling kills me on that, but that’s how it’s spelled!) is a must. The far part of the island is a big dog-friendly park with access to a swimming area, walking trails, etc. We took my doodle there last summer, and he LOVED it. Enjoy you trip, safe travels!

      I meant to mention…Congdon’s Doughnuts is pretty famous in Wells – go early because it gets crowded quick. Also, Scoop Deck has great ice cream and LOTS of flavors to choose from. In Ogunquit, we like to visit The Front Porch for the piano bar. It’s a fun experience!

    These look delicious! I am a huge fan of the banana-flax cookies you shared, as well as the banana protein pancakes so this will most certainly be a new addition to the rotation πŸ™‚ I totally understand the painting your nails thing- pictures of my hands holding something look infinitely cuter that way πŸ™‚

    Have a safe trip!

    These look delicious! I’m always down for chocolate in my breakfast too πŸ˜‰

    For the playlist, you definitely need some Disney classics. Your road trip companion might not enjoy them as much, but you can’t help but sing along when Hakuna Matata comes on.

    Hey Taralynn!

    I am from the seacoast of New Hampshire… so excited to hear you’ll be adventuring in southern Maine! Some towns that may interest you are York Beach, ME (such a cute town with a light house and Dunne’s Ice Cream… a must go to if you like ice cream) and also Portsmouth, NH. They will be towns you pass on the way to Ogunquit πŸ™‚ Portsmouth has a ton of history (some of the homes in the town are from the 1600s), some light houses, a fort, and like endless amounts of restaurants to eat at. It sits right on the bay/ocean, and several of the restaurants allow you to eat on decks overlooking the water.

    Have a great time!

    My Mom lives in Ogunquit! You need to walk the Marginal Way! Do NOT miss It! the views are amazing and its a great walk all the way to Perkins Cove!!

    If you get the chance, you have to go to Don Antonio’s for pizza in New York! They lightly fry the dough and it’s absolutely delicious! It’s in Manhattan, so you’d have to take a subway from Yankee stadium, but it’s not a bad ride. I hope you have a great time!

    I love a little 90s throwback playlist for roadtrips. Always fun to jam out to songs you haven’t listened to in years but somehow still remember all the words!
