You know when you’re sitting around with a group of people and out of nowhere someone starts asking random questions? Well, that happened to me the other day, and the best question asked was, “What would you want your last meal on Earth to be?” Honestly, it didn’t even take me second seconds to blurt out, “Warm, gooey chocolate chip cookies and a tall glass of milk!” Now that’s what I call a sweet tooth!
For as long as I can remember, I have loved chocolate chip cookies – Chips Ahoy, Tollhouse, Keebler, Soft Batch – you name it, I ate it! However, the one thing I wasn’t so good at growing up was making my own cookies from scratch. Sure, I could slice n’ bake and call them my own, but that’s not my style! I wanted to perfect my own chocolate chip cookie.
The perfect opportunity came to be in the 10th grade. We had to bake cookies for Chemistry class (for pi day or something). I remember driving to the store to buy all the necessary ingredients, going home and actually making the cookies, and then being completely disappointed when they came out as hard as hockey pucks. I still brought them to class, only to have some boy throw one across the room to prove that they were unbreakable. Eek! Talk about embarrassed!
Since then, I haven’t really experimented with homemade cookies much. It’s been break n’ bake ever since. Well, until today that is…
So they don’t photograph well…you can’t have it all, people!
I saw Katie’s Flourless Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe yesterday and just knew that I had to make something very similar very soon. So, I got home, ate a quick dinner, and got started. I was in an adventurous mood today, so I took her recipe and modified it a little. And if you’ve already read Katie’s post from yesterday, you know my cookies don’t look half as beautiful as hers, but they tasted really good. That’s what counts, right?!
Double Dark Chocolate Flourless Cookies
Modified from Chocolate Covered Katie
Yields 6 cookies
3/4 cup quick cooking oats
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons raw cane sugar
1 tablespoon unsweetened dark chocolate cocoa powder
1 tablespoon peanut butter
2 tablespoons unsweetened applesauce
2 tablespoons dark chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Combine first five ingredients in a blender until the mixture is coarsely combined. Melt the peanut butter in the microwave for 10-15 seconds. Mix melted peanut butter and apple sauce in with the dry ingredients. Add in the chocolate chips right before the mixture starts to form into a ball of “dough.” Form 6 cookie patties and place on lightly sprayed baking sheet. Bake for 9 minutes. Enjoy!
Sure, these aren’t decadent, rich cookies, but they sure did satisfy my sweet tooth. And if I can do that while still being healthy, I’ll take it!
Off to watch some Wednesday night reruns. Does anyone know when new episodes of Modern Family start back up?!

Double dark chocolate? Oh my word, those look/sound incredible! Um, like I want to take them off the screen… do you know how I can do that? 😉
Ohhhh… I want to make these! Brown foods… I swear there’s no way to make them “pretty.” But we know they are tasty. 🙂
Mmm these look so good! And I love that they’re pretty healthy too. Score! ;D
I would want my last meal on earth to be sushi followed by pumpkin pie. Random, but delicious!
Um YUM. These look awesome.
Er send some over, would ya?? Last meal on earth for me would be a bowl of spaghetti in marinara sauce followed by choc chip cookies topped with vanilla ice cream (or choc chip cookie dough cheesecake- either work :D)
What a question! Definitely pizza! 🙂
That may be the hardest question ever! Hmm, I guess I would say I’d want pizza with goat cheese followed by frozen yogurt with all the toppings! 🙂
I would love sushi as my last meal on earth. And then a bunch of Magic Middle cookies…do you remember those? They were divine! Too bad they stopped making them.
Brownies or a nice sweet potato with earth balance and brown sugar
Last meal on earth?? Hmm I think an oreo cheesecake..or sundae! lol
Ohh cheesecake is a close second for me!
Last meal on earth? Pizza with a side of spaghetti and tacos for dessert. 😀
