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.

Peach and Coconut Oatmeal Cookies-delicious and healthy cookies perfect for peach season! // thehealthymaven.com #glutenfreeThere 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 πŸ˜‰

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!

  1. 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!

  2. 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?

  3. I remember Louman! Does that mean I get a cookie? πŸ˜€ 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!

  4. These look very yummy! And I love the ingredient list πŸ™‚ Love when something looks good, tastes good, and is good for you too!

  5. Mmmm! I may have to make these! I just tried peaches in my oatmeal the other day and I enjoyed them πŸ™‚

  6. 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.

  7. Haha! You crack me up girl! I am obsessed with peaches but they have NOT been good lately. WTH!? I never would have thought to put peach and coconut together but I’m sure it is awesome.

    I wish I could wear yoga pants every day to work. I totally would. Right now I’m rocking dresses because they are the only thing that fits!

  8. Poor C! He’s so lucky to have such a fab gf to bake him alllll the peachy keen cookies. Then you went and added coconut….dreamy on another level! Is C willing to share?!

  9. Whenever I think of peaches, I think of Peaches and Cream Oatmeal from Quaker Oats and then I think of myself at the age of 5, 6 & 7 – Man I miss those years, when the worst thing that could possibly happen was have my barbie doll get throw in the deep end of the pool!
