OMG! these cookies!
A while ago, I had a craving for oatmeal cookies. (Obsessive readers will remember that fiasco.) It was one of those inexplicable things (I’m ambivalent towards oatmeal and hate the raisins they’re usually studded with) but the desire would not go away, and since I firmly believe the best way to get rid of desire is to just give in … voila.
I can’t remember where I got the recipe from originally (sorry!) but I modified it a good deal anyway, so in the grand tradition of cookery I’m renaming it and pretending it was my idea from the beginning, ahem.
These are vegan, they are not healthy, and they have enough sugar to rot out your teeth from a single bite (consider yourself warned). They’re also super chewy and chocolaty and addictive and (in my humble opinion) the best goddamn cookies imaginable.
The first batch went fast. Cullen and I kept saying “OH MY GOD” and eating another one (sometimes we added an F to the OMG).
