Cookie Experiment

Well I took the basic recipe from Vive le Vegan.. but changed it around a little bit. You all know I love oats.. so I left out a little of the spelt flour and added oats :-D Then I put in chunks of papaya instead of carob chips like it calls for. And.. I pureed some of the peaches (haha!) instead of using oil. And.. that was basically it! Oh yeah and I didn't have baking soda so I added a PINCH more of baking powder and figured they'd be fine.. and they are!

I wanted to send them to my partner for the cookie swap.. but I burnt the second half of the batch. Now I'm out of papaya.. well I might just make a different kind and send her a mix. I'm not even sure how to send cookies in the mail!

you are so clever in the kitchen! they look delicious. you could send cookies in an old oatmeal or cocoa container -- both are round and might hold the cookies well. what a treat to get cookies in the mail! :o)

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I have enjoyed yours. Your cookie modification is great! I love the peach idea.

Off topic, but I just noticed you are a musician: My boyfriend is studying music education with a string concentration. He's on his 6th year and still has the full year + dreadful student teaching. He plays upright and electric bass.

These cookies look so tropical! Peach puree and papaya.... yum. What a treat. I once sent cookies in themail packed in a little box full of unsalted, unbuttered (air popped) popccorn.
