VIBE Vanilla Oatmeal Cookies
Get your taste buds fired up! Our very own Life Shotz Brand Rep Jeanine Lano created a recipe we had to share. She used the Toll House Chocolate Chip recipe but made a few “switch-er-oo’s” and created magic.
“What I love about this cookie is that while it still has a fair amount of ‘sugar,’ it is pumped up with VIBE to boost protein – which means this cookie is not an empty calorie bomb anymore!
Tips – Try adding in your favorite dried fruit for texture (I love golden raisins or cranberries will add a pop of color!). Also, I suggest cutting back on the amount of sugar, and you can play with using some honey or maple syrup too.”
- 2 1/4 cup VIBE Vanilla
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 cup butter or Ghee, softened
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 large eggs
- 1 cup oats (use gluten free if needed)
- 1 cup cacao nibs or dark chocolate
- (Optional: 1 cup chopped nuts or seeds)
Preheat oven to 375. Combine VIBE, baking soda and salt in small bowl. Beat butter/Ghee, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract in large mixer bowl until creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually beat in VIBE mixture. Stir in oats, chocolate and nuts. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto non-greased baking sheet. Bake for 9-11 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on baking sheet for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks and cool completely.
