C was home from work yesterday so you have him to thank for cookies appearing on the blog today. Poor kid destroyed his legs jet skiing and playing volleyball over the weekend to a point where he could barely walk to the kitchen, let alone make it to work. So when I asked him if there was anything I could do, his only response was “cookies”. Actually his only response was “Louman has been pretty empty…” but unless you’re a longtime THM reader you probably wouldn’t get this reference.
There are pros and cons to having him home. Pro: when at a loss for recipe inspiration, he is sure to encourage me to get my bake on. Con: He takes over my office aka the bed. Pro: I get to listen to the Game of Thrones audiobooks over the speakers with him. Con: He defaces my to-do list by adding “have a ridiculously good-looking boyfriend” to it then checks it off…okay that one made me laugh a little 😉
The best part about having him home is getting immediate feedback from the ultimate test-taster. He declared these Peach and Coconut Oatmeal Cookies to be “seriously awesome”! I’ll take it!

How to Make Peach Oatmeal Cookies
Using a stand mixer or electric handheld mixer, start by mixing the coconut oil, applesauce and coconut palm sugar. Mix in the eggs and vanilla extract until well combined. In a separate bowl, combine the dry ingredients – the oats, oat flour, baking soda and salt. Slowly add the dry mixture to the wet mixture. Lastly, add in the coconut flakes and chopped peaches until mixed in. Scoop out tablespoon sized balls and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
