Cookies…By Popular Demand!

For goodness sake, I tried to give you greens (see previous post) y'all only want cookies. Fine! I celebrated the March snowstorm making agave oatmeal chocolate chip. Mostly I wanted to use the agave that was sitting in the pantry for a while. The best way to get inspiration is to try to use up an ingredient.

Here's what I learned about agave. It has about the same number of calories as granulated sugar, it's sweeter, so some people use less depending on the usage, and it has a lower glycemic index as measured by the current standard.

Here's what I learned about your cooking preferences. Baked good recipes will always be more popular than greens…I tried 🙂

The recipe is straight from the Dominos website. Cookies are on the sweeter side, especially since I subbed chocolate chips for the raisins.

And yes, good with milk, hot chocolate, tea, coffee and wine – B (and for breakfast)

  1. Hi Betsy, Love your blog but miss you on Sirius. I just heard that the Broads on the Stars network are being cancelled. That morning slot would be perfect for you! Hope to have you for company again whenever I’m driving. Joan

  2. Do you think you have to use both types of Agave, or can you get away with only one type (I have one in the house…). Thanks!

  3. Yum! Oatmeal cookies are my fave now that I know they don’t need to be made with raisins 🙂
    A recipe i love also includes cranberries and both dark and white chocolate (and a dash of cinnamon). Am not usually a white chocolate fan but it’s a great combination. Thanks Betsy!
