Healthier Soft Oatmeal Cookies
I loved the idea of a healthier oatmeal cookie recipe, so went ahead and made a little adjustments to this recipe hoping my family would like it. These are my changes: substituted butter with coconut oil, used 1 1/3 c brown sugar in place of both sugars, doubled the vanilla extract, reduced the all-purpose flour to 1/2 c, reduced the salt to 1/2 tsp, omitted the cinnamon and dates, and added 1 c chopped pecans and 1/2 c raisins. The rest of the ingredients (eggs, baking soda & whole wheat flour) were kept the same as the original recipe. My family loved these!! :) I try to always have these already rolled into balls in the freezer, so I can just take them out of the freezer to room temp while the oven gets to 375F and bake them for 12 minutes, this way they are done but still a bit chewy and just delicious. Thanks for sharing this recipe!

Vanilla Glaze
Very good recipe! Just made a few changes based on previous reviews: milk and butter were tbs instead of tsp, the rest were exactly as written. It had a nice buttery flavor, and complimented very well a confetti cake made to look like a "rosca de reyes" for kindergarteners. If you want a simpler flavor, I would keep the butter in tsp, but the milk definitely needs to be in tbs always.

Chocolate Chip Mini Muffins
I liked this muffins, but more importantly, the kids loved them! I think this is a great recipe if you are trying to give your family better options nutrition-wise. I used 1 cup white flour and 1 cup whole flour, coconut oil and coconut milk for the regulars keeping the same amounts as the recipe indicates, and used only brown sugar (1/2 cup in total). Also, added 2 tablespoons of cocoa as suggested. Thanks for the recipe!
