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! Im 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! I 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.
Ingredients: *1 cup almond meal, 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate hips, 1 tablespoon baking powder, 1/2 cup raisins, 1 cup oats, 1/4 cup baking stevia (or honey), 1 egg, 4 oz unsweetened cinnamon apple sauce, pinch sea salt, and 3 tablespoons coconut oil melted.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Add oats, baking powder, and almond meal to a mixing bowl and combine.
Stir in applesauce and egg.
Melt coconut oil and mix in!
Mix in Stevia (0r you can use honey for sweetener)
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.
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.
Bake for about 13-15 minutes! The edges will be slightly brown.
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!
These are going to be great to keep in the car for our trip. They will also be delicious heated up in the morning for breakfast.
Makes 24 -28 cookies!
Ok, since i’m making a playlist…I need your favorite road trip song! GO!
