2 1/2 cups old fashioned oats
1 cup plain low fat greek yogurt
3/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
2 ripe bananas
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Grease muffin tin with shortening (I used butter flavored) or cooking spray or line with liners.
Place all ingredients except oats in a blender or food processor. Blend until smooth. Add oats 1/2 cup at a time and blend until smooth after each addition (this is how I have to do it with my wimpy blender, if you have a nice one, you could probably add the oats with the other ingredients).
Divide batter into 12 muffins (they will be very full) and bake for 15-20 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.
3/4 Cup firmly packed brown sugar
3/4 Cup trans-fat free vegetable shortening
1/2 Cup granulated sugar
1/4 Cup Water
1 Teaspoon vanilla
3 cups Quaker Oats (quick or old fashioned, uncooked)
1 Cup all-purpose flour
1 Teaspoon salt (optional)
1/2 Teaspoon Baking Soda
Heat oven to 375°F. In large bowl, beat brown sugar, shortening and granulated sugar on medium speed of electric mixer until creamy. Add egg, water and vanilla; beat well. Add combined oats, flour, salt and baking soda; mix well. Drop dough by rounded teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 9 to 11 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Remove to wire rack. Cool completely. Store tightly covered.
Serving Tips: Add 1 cup of any one or a combination of any of the following ingredients to basic cookie dough: raisins, chopped nuts, chocolate chips or shredded coconut.
Large Cookies: Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 15 to 17 minutes. About 2-1/2 Dozen
Bar Cookies: Press dough onto bottom of ungreased 13 x 9-inch baking pan. Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool completely in pan on wire rack. Cut into bars. Store tightly covered. Makes about 2 1/2 dozen bar cookies.
High Altitude Adjustment: Increase flour to 1-1/4 cups and bake as directed.
1 1/4 cups (210 g) flour
1 1/2 cups (125 g) old-fashioned rolled oats
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup (50 g) pecans, toasted and chopped
1/2 cup (80 g) golden raisins
1 stick cold butter, cut into 10 pieces
1/3 cup cold heavy cream
1/2 cup maple syrup
1 cold egg
Preheat oven to 350°F.
In a large bowl, stir together flour, oats, baking powder, baking soda, salt, pecans, and raisins. Scatter the butter pieces on top. Cut in butter with two knives until it’s somewhat broken down and grape-size pieces are still visible.
In a small bowl, whisk together cream, maple syrup, and egg. Add to flour mixture, and use hand mixer on low speed until dough just comes together, about 20 seconds.
Using a 1/3 cup measure, drop mounded scoops of the dough onto a baking sheet, forming 8 scones and leaving a couple of inches between each. Bake until scones are golden brown on top, 30-40 minutes. Transfer to wire rack to cool.
I found this to be incredibly sweet so just used a drizzle: next time I’d make a half or even third recipe. If you don’t like things to be too sweet, I’d recommend you go easy on the glaze.
1 cup icing sugar
3 tablespoons maple syrup
1 to 2 tablespoons water
While scones are cooling, whisk together sugar, maple syrup, and enough water to make a pourable glaze. When scones have cooled 30 minutes, brush or drizzle glaze over.
3/4 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup white sugar
1 cup light brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
3 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
1 2/3 cups (approximately 11 oz) butterscotch chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, beat the butter until smooth and almost fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add the sugars and continue beating until the mixture is light and fluffy, about 4-5 minutes. Add the eggs and vanilla and beat until smooth again.
In a separate bowl, whisk together all of the dry ingredients except the butterscotch chips. Gradually add this mixture to the wet ingredients, half at a time. Stir until fully combined. Add the butterscotch chips and stir well.
I used a medium size cookie scoop (about a tablespoon in size) to drop the dough onto a large baking sheet lined with a silpat mat. Bake for 8-9 minutes. Remove from the oven before the cookies are browned and when they still look soft in the center. Let them cool on the same tray for 5-10 minutes; this will allow them to finish baking without overcooking.
When the cookies are firm enough to handle, transfer them to a wire cooling rack and let cool completely. The finished cookies freeze well and the dough also freezes well. When I am baking the cookie dough straight from the freezer, I allow a few extra minutes for the baking.
