Recipe by B. Maitreya
"A rich-tasting natural alternative to the usual peanut-butter chocolate chip cookie, this recipe calls for natural sweeteners and whole grains in place of refined white flour and white sugar. You'll find these ingredients in the natural food aisle of large grocery stores or your local health food store, and buy organic wherever possible. YOU are worth the effort to collect these ingredients and try this cookie! Substitute cashews or peanuts for almonds, if desired."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

regular rolled oats
butter, room temperature
1 1/4 cups
whole wheat flour
unsweetened dried coconut
unsweetened carob chips
I've made this a couple of times and also tried using all honey, 3 packets of stevia, and walnuts instead of almonds. Prefer 1-1/2 cups of carob chips. This is a great cookie!
I really didn't like these. I love carob and molasses but these cookies did not live up to my expectation. My boyfriend (who eats anything) didn't like them at all, so I know that it wasn't just me. I followed the recipe exactly except I substituted honey for the sugar. Maybe that was the problem? They were kinda bitter at the same time being sickly sweet. I also thought the 1/2 cup of butter overrides any potential health benefit. I rarely rate anything bad, but I did not care for these. Will not make again.
Instead of the sugar I used honey and so had to add extra flour to make up for the moisture the the honey adds. I also used walnuts instead of almonds, though I imagine that most any nut would work depending on taste. I also left out the coconut. I would like them to be just a little sweeter next time, but overall a wonderful cookie.
Yummy!! I made these all vegan by substituting veggie oil for the butter, and arrow root for the egg. I also used pre-made almond butter and all honey- no sugar. Soo good!
Great recipe, used a bit of natural peanut butter instead of the almonds, only used 1/2 butter and now oil. Also used rice flour and oat flour instead of wheat flour. Didn't use sugar just some agave nectar (1/4 cup.) They turned out awesome!
Reviewed on Wednesday, May 20, 2009 by iLoveMaitreya I've made these cookies a couple of times now, and really appreciate the tip for trying different nuts for the nut-butter portion. I tried using sucanat with this recipe instead of turbinado, and poured in a little honey for good measure. I thought it was interesting all the comments about using honey. If you're vegan, stick with the sucanat or turbinado. And 1Tb ground flax with 3Tb water will replace 1 egg. I think if you're not used to the unsweetened carob and over compensate with the honey it really won't be good. I couldn't rate this less then 4 stars!
My whole family loved these. The only thing I did was sweeten it more to our taste (unforturnately, I did not keep track of this). My husband commented that they tasted similar to brownies. Next time I will add half a cup of chopped nuts when I add the carob chips. Great healthy cookies! Thank you!
Very good flavor but too crumbly. They didn't seem dry but just wouldn't stay together. The only thing I changed was the carob chips. I used 1/2 cup choc chips and 1/2 cup dried cherries.
