These are an amalgam of a couple of recipes — my usual way of cooking and baking. Cruise the cookbooks and magazines, take a peek at Pinterest — then make something up.
• half cup butter
• third cup nut-butter (I used macadamia)
• 1 cup rolled oats*
*whizzed into coarse flour in food processor
• 1 square bakers chocolate
• quarter cup whole almonds
• 2 tsp vanilla
• 3/4 cup sugar, equal parts white and brown
• 1 egg
• half cup flour + 1 tsp baking soda
Cream butters and sugars, stir egg and vanilla together and add to butter/sugar mixture.
Whiz the oats a bit, (pulsing 4 or 5 times was enough to make a crumbly flour) then add it to the wet mixture.
Now toss your almonds and rough-chopped chocolate into the processor and pulse it a few times, add to wet mixture.
Stir vigorously then add stirred or sifted flour/baking soda… (muttering to yourself, "Take that! gluten-free dweebies!")
Chill, roll into balls, flatten slightly on parchment covered sheet.
350 degree oven, about 9 minutes.
Now these don't yield a whole lot of cookies, you'll get maybe 2 dozen… but at my house that's a good thing.
To paraphrase Warren Zevon here:
"Enjoy every cookie".
