Sorry for the very long delay in posts. I have been so busy, I haven’t had much time for anything! Well, anything but cookies! I had some dried apricots in my cabinet that have been begging to be used up, and I was in the mood to bake, so out came cookies! I bought a bag of oats a few months ago called “Coach’s Oats”. It was a Costco buy, and a huge bag. They aren’t traditional oats, nor steel cut, but they have a really interesting texture, so I decided to use them in a new cookie.

Apricot Maple Oatmeal cookies

For the record, I think my cookies would’ve been better with regular rolled oats, but these were none the less YUMMY! They had the perfect crispy edge with a chewy, chewy center! I haven’t perfected the recipe. I just threw a bunch of stuff together, minding my ratios and kept watch over the oven. The first batch was a bit flat, so I added more oats. The second batch came out a lot nice, but it still needs a bit of work, so I will refrain from posting the recipe just yet. I will tell you though, there wasn’t too much sugar in these bad boys, and they’ve got a great rich flavor from the maple syrup!

Cookies!I will be back a bit later with another post to make up for my absence! Happy MoFO!
