Peach and Coconut Oatmeal Cookies

August 12, 2014

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.

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!

        No worries 😉 I had a mini panic-attack thinking I may have forgotten to write then eggs in! Glad it all worked out! How did you like the cookies? Thanks so much.

          Loved the cookies! I left out the coconut, since my husband does not care for it, but next time I’m going to have to add it because I love coconut! I also used a GF flour mix that I have instead of the oat flour and it worked out perfectly. Sorry to cause the mini panic-attack!

    1) obvi obsessed with peach season
    2) I wear basically whatever to work, minus workout clothes. That’s the beauty of working for a company that sells jeans. Today I’m wearing some soft pants and a kind of sheer white blouse. I should text you about this actually.

    Mmm these look awesome girl!

    I just got home from England last night and I haven’t had an Ontario peach yet! But I’m actually going to the farmers market soon to buy some – I can’t wait!

    I want to go home now and work from bed!! While Kardashians playing. Multitasking, right?
    Aww, I love that you baked those cookies for C. What a lucky man.
    I love peaches. I wonder if it is possible to make peach sauce? Like applesauce? That would be delicious, no?

    I remember Louman! Does that mean I get a cookie? 😀 Because it would go amazingly with the peach smoothies that I’ve been downing like crazy lately. I don’t know what I’m going to miss more when summer is over — the weather or the fruit!

    The only time that I sort of wish I made a little money blogging is when I feel guilty for the time involved – if I made money I could be on my laptop and say “I’m working!!” Sometimes I pretend that I’m doing other work on my computer when I’m really just reading blogs – fools no one in my family but makes me feel a bit better.
