Daphne Oz’s Reduced Guilt Triple Lemon Bars

I pinned this recipe for Daphne Oz’s reduced guilt triple lemon bars almost a year ago. Since then, I always wanted to make them, but had never used coconut oil in my baking before. Alas I took the plunge and bought a jar online, and have had fun experimenting with the ingredient since. The first […]

Giant Date Oatmeal Cookie (for 1 or 2)

White Chocolate Date Oat Flax Pudding Cookies

Flax seed has many nutritional benefits, but it also is a great addition to baked goods. I developed this recipe a couple of years ago on a whim, and have made it several times since. I love that besides making these cookies delicious and chewy, the flax seeds, rolled oats, and dates add fiber and […]

RAISINETS Oatmeal Pudding Cookies

I don’t know if it is a Western New York thing, but I don’t often see Raisinets in the candy aisles here. So when I spotted a huge bag on clearance after Halloween, I immediately purchased them. Originally, my intent was to have them as a snack for my family. Then my wheels got to […]

S’more Oatmeal Pudding Chip Cookies II

I call this “antioxidant oatmeal” because it is full of antioxidants from the almond milk, blueberries, vanilla beans., and rolled oats. This makes a wonderful warm breakfast or afternoon snack, and you can adjust the amount of blueberries to […]

Lucky Charms Pudding Cookies

We don’t generally eat sugary cereal in our house, but we do buy an occasional box of Lucky Charms. My husband ate a few bowls of it for breakfast over his Easter break from teaching. My daughter had two small bowls of it herself. (Believe it or not, she actually prefers wheat bran to the […]

Caramel White Chocolate Oatmeal Pudding Cookies

I just love the new Duncan Hines Frosting Creations packets….I have had so much fun experimenting with them in my pudding chip cookie and fudge recipes! Here I used their caramel flavor with french vanilla pudding mix, white chocolate chips, and rolled oats. They were a delight…a rich caramel backdrop with plenty of rich and […]

Sunshine Breakfast Pudding Cookies

I made up these cookies last week, and they are just full of unique and delicious ingredients. Instant white chocolate pudding mix makes them extra soft. Orange flavored Duncan Hines frosting creations packets give a pleasant citrus boost. Rolled oats and chopped dates add some pleasant body and texture. Plenty of creamy white chocolate chips […]
