To my CF Mom friends,
I have managed to improve upon a Martha Stewart recipe for chocolate chip cookie bars. Here's the original recipe:
3 sticks butter
4 C flour
2t baking soda
3/4 t salt
1C white sugar
1 1/2 C brown sugar
2 C chocolate chips
Cream butter and sugars; add eggs and vanilla; mix dry ingredients together and mix with wet stuff; mix in chips. Bake in buttered half sheet pan for about 20 minutes at 350 degrees.
Here are my changes:
1.) For the creaming, I used 2 1/2 sticks of butter with 1/2 C peanut butter and 1/3 C (it didn't quite reach the top of the measuring cup because I ran out) of real maple syrup.
2.) I blended up oatmeal into flour and substituted 1C of regular flour for 1C of this oat flour.
3.) I only used 1 1/2 C of chocolate chips because we don't like the inside to be completely chocolate.
So good, you guys. They had something extra you couldn't quite put your finger on. I don't know if it was the PB, the syrup, the oat flour, or the combination but I'm not changing anything. I see no reason to put pans of chocolate chip cookies in and out of the oven. They have arrived.
Oats, flour, butter, eggs, sugar ~ add some milk for the kids and coffee for me and we've got breakfast!
