Everything cookies

I’m going to call these “Everything” Cookies, because they’ve got a lot going on. I made them last night because I had most of the ingredients on hand, and I think they turned out pretty well. They’d be good if you couldn’t decide what kind of cookie you wanted (peanut butter? oatmeal? chococolate chip? cherry?) and didn’t mind having them all thrown in together.

Here’s my modified recipe, taken from the original at RecipeZaar.


1/3 cup smooth cashew butter,  almond butter, or peanut butter

2 tablespoons canola oil

½ cup organic sugar

1/3 cup soymilk

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1 cup whole wheat flour

½ teaspoon baking soda

½ teaspoon salt

1 cup rolled oats

½ cup non-dairy chocolate chips

½  cup chopped macadamia nuts or walnuts

¼  cup dried cherries


Preheat oven to 375°F. Spray a large baking sheet with non-stick spray; set aside.

Whisk together first five ingredients until very smooth. Mix flour, baking soda, and salt in separate bowl and add along with remaining ingredients to wet ingredients.  

Drop batter by large spoonfuls onto prepared baking sheet. Bake for about 8 minutes, or until tops just begin to crack.

I just want to point out, in case you needed some nudging to make these cookies yourself, that I shared some with a friend today and he said they “rocked” and are “the best yet from Morrisroe Bakery.” I very humbly accept this praise.
