Barney Butter Oatmeal Cookies

by Meghann on August 21, 2009

Mmm… cookies!


I was inspired by Caitlin‘s Bake Sale at the Healthy Living Summit last week to bake up a batch of my own cookies.

I am in not way shape or form a baker, but every once in a while the mood does strike.

After browsing a few recipe ideas I decided to take advantage of the Barney Butter Oatmeal Cookie recipe card that came in my swag bag.


The recipe can also be found online here.

A couple changes I made

  • Halved the recipe
  • Whole Wheat Flour instead of Oat Flour
  • Left out the Almond Extract
  • Only used a small handful of chocolate chips and craisins

Another swag bag find helped me mix the batter.


Love my Oikos spatula!




While the cookies were baking I started piecing together a fun dinner as well.


I picked up these Nasoya wraps with a coupon I got at the summit and decided to make some ravioli with them. Well atleast my version of ravioli. πŸ˜‰


For the filling I combined:

  • Mashed up Chickpeas
  • Tomato
  • Basil
  • Mozzarella


All filled up.


I gave up trying to make them look like actual ravioli and just went with the haphazard squished look.


Unfortunately my haphazardness bombed in the pan. I tried to heat them up with some red sauce, but they just fell apart.


They were still really good though! The mozzarella in the middle heated up and became all gooey. I’m not even a big pasta lover and i loved this delish. I think it worked better having them fall apart. πŸ™‚

On the side I made a massage kale salad with tomatoes and mushrooms.


I’m happy to say Derek had the kale salad too and finished his plate. Major brownie points!

For dessert you know there were cookies!!


These came out great! Perfectly crumbly and almond buttery. I had one of the cookies and split the other with Derek.

Time to relax and cuddle on the couch. Hopefully there’s something good on tv.

Good night!!

Crumbly Barney Butter cookies?! Sounds like heaven to me, enjoy!

Oh those look delicious!!! Unfortunately I’m cooking in an AC-less home. It’s like 35C in here! lol That’s melting in Fahrenheit! πŸ˜›

I’m going to save the recipe for fall!

Did you not boil the ravioli, but try to “cook” them with the sauce? Kinda confused on this one!

It doesn’t matter, it looks good and it tasted good!

wow those wonton stuffed thingies you made look great, so creative!!

Wow homemade raviolis sounds BOMB. You’re right – they still taste the same no matter the shape, right! πŸ˜‰

You are just full of good ideas tonight! I should try making my own “ravioli”, too!

Well done for giving ravioli a go, I’ve never even attempted that!

12 Brandi August 22, 2009 at 7:28 am

those cookies look great!

Love the ravioli idea – nicely done! Even if they did fall apart – they look delicious! πŸ™‚ Have fun with Derek!

Those Nasoya wrappers are SO useful. I always make appetizers for parties by stuffing them with mashed sweet potato, curry powder, onion, and cumin. They end up tasting like Indian samosas! It’s much easier to boil the dumplings rather than sautee them. You know they are done cooking when they float to the top of the pot.

You know, peanut butter cookies have always been my favourite kind of cookie – and I’ve never tried an almond butter variety. I’ve got to do that when it’s no longer too hot to use my oven! πŸ˜› Hope you and Derek had a great night πŸ™‚

They look and sound wonderful! Peanut butter cookies are such a nice treat. Way to embrace Cookie Friday!!!

And I love your “raviolli” dinner. In no way does the shape of the pasta matter, espeically when its stuffed with ooey goodness like yours.

Hope you enjoy your night on the couch.
