Wouldn't you agree, sleeping in is a pastime? Most mornings, I am up wayy before 6am to go for a dip, so I don't get to sleep in much (I'm actually so used to it that I don't need an alarm.) Anyways I've always wondered what lazy mornings and Saturday cartoons were like. I found out, on my own schedule...at night.
For breakfast, I often eat oatmeal with agave nectar and walnuts. But it was nighttime, so making a cookie seemed more appropriate. And that is how the SATURDAY MIGHT COOKIE came about.
We then curled up with our cookies, had hot chocolate in place of coffee, and watched cartoons. It was the perfect Saturday "might" (morning at night.)
So now I know what a "Saturday morning" is like. Though on actual Saturday mornings, I prefer my team and the pool...there are no commercial breaks.
Big bowl, large bowl, mixing spoon, fork or whisk, oven, cookie sheet
Large bowl: 1 cup all purpose flour, 1 tsp baking powder, 1/2 tsp baking soda, 1/4 tsp salt, 1/4 cup brown sugar
Small bowl: 1/4 cup vegetable oil, 1/3 cup agave nectar, 1 tsp vanilla extract
When combined: 1/3 cup chopped walnuts, 1/4 cup oatmeal (I used quick oats)
Preheat the oven to 350F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and sugar.
In a small bowl, whisk (or fork) together oil, agave and vanilla extract. Pour into flour mixture and stir until almost combined. Add the walnuts and oats and stir until distributed in the cookie dough.
Shape into 12 rounded balls and place onto prepared baking sheet.
Bake for 10 minutes, until cookies are lightly browned around the edges.
Cool on baking sheet for 2-3 minutes, then transfer to a plate to cool completely.
