This has been a busy month of trips for me! But I have had so much fun having so many awesome guest posters on my blog. Do we have any hockey fans in the house? I am headed to Denver to see the Blackhawks vs Avalanche game. It will be so fun to go to especially since the Blackhawks are undefeated! Then I will be heading in a week on my husbands company retreat in San Diego, and then we are celebrating our anniversary the week after! Phew March is making me tired!

I am excited to have Ruthie today visiting my blog. We met at a blog conference and she is really the sweetest person I have met! I absolutely adore her blog, and I especially love her cooking tutorials. Her recipes always look delicious and I can’t wait to try out these cookies!

  1. it is so simple to make and truly delicious. It is always incredibly moist, without being sickly, and it gets such positive compliments from guests. A superb recipe!

  2. Missing the step of sugar…..good thing I noticed after only one pan made. It’s in the list but not in the steps??

  3. I want to thank you so much for this recipe, it was great i adjusted it a little
    instead of wheat flour i used almond flour and instead of canola oil i used coconut oil, i also added dried cranberry and other dried fruits i had around the house 🙂 it was delicious.

    1. i thought it was an obviuos choice.. if you think about it, i can get that chocolate if i go to that shop in france. where am i supposed to get a man to meditate and gimme a unique matcha blend, huh?! and tea is healthier too!

  4. This looks like a good source of fiber and oats! I love oatmeal raisin cookies and this like an awesome recipe.

  5. These cookies look super easy to make and tasty. And yes we could all use a skinner cookie these days when spring and summer await us!
