I had a cake mix and decided to try a recipe from it but the one on the box had nuts in it. I love nuts but it isn't fair for me to make something that my entire family can't enjoy or at least try (my husband has a serious tree nut allergy). Today I want to share how I modified that recipe into my own and review how well the spatula worked.
Double Chocolate Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies (44 average cookie scoop cookies)
1 pk Duncan Hines Dark Chocolate Fudge cake mix
¼ cup water
1 stick "I cant’ believe its not butter" (melted)
½ cup egg substitute
¼ cup light brown sugar
1 tsp real vanilla
1 cup old fashioned oats
11oz peanut butter and milk chocolate baking chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and grease your cookies sheets. Blend together the water, melted butter, egg substitute, and vanilla. Add in the sugar and oats thoroughly then incorporate the cake mix a bit at a time until it is all blended well. Finally add in the baking chips and get them into every layer of your batter.
Using an average size cookie scoop place the dough on your greased cookie sheets. Bake for 13 minutes (1 minute less for more googy or 1 minute more for more crisp cookies).
Remove the cookie sheet and cookies from oven but let the cookies set for two minutes before you start removing them to either a cooling rack or onto a piece of parchment paper or other surface. I use paper shopping bags cut and laid out myself then I recycle the bag after I'm done.
So, Sisters and Brothers, what do you think of these? Would you make them and if so, for what occasion?
