Let me say this:  It’s not that this is necessarily a bad recipe, I just failed at it.  The original recipe called for microwaving the cookie-goo, but I really wanted that fresh from the oven taste.  That maaaay have been a mistake.  Also, when combining the ingredients, I just made a crumbly mess and had to add a little more butter to make it work.  Feel free to try this in the microwave for 1 minute, but I’m still not sold because of the crumbliness.  Let me know if you got it right!  I need to learn!

Instead, I would recommend trying out the Oatmeal Breakfast Bake, which is VERY cookie-like.  Swap out a few things for other things and I’m pretty sure you’ll get even more of a cookie taste.  If I get around to it, I’ll post my attempts to make the breakfast bake a cookie.  Until then, let me know if you tried it!!


  • 1 tbsp melted butter
  • 2 tbsp dark brown sugar
  • 3 drops vanilla extract
  • pinch salt
  • 1 egg yook
  • 1/4 cup bread flour
  • 2 tbsp chocolate chips



  1. Mix all ingredients.
  2. Transfer to oven or microwave safe bowl (depending on what you do in step 3).
  3. Bake at 350 degrees F for 20 – 25 minutes in oven or toaster oven.  -OR- Microwave 40 – 60 seconds.

*So obviously, baking it was my first mistake.  After describing my failure to friends at work the next day, their response was “why didn’t you just make a batch of cookies?  You did almost the same amount of work and let it bake for longer.”  Truth.  Next time, I would just try microwaving this.

I’m apparently on a strawberry and pecan meal kick, as the last bunch of posts seem to have some version of one of those in them.  So now, I shall combine the two.

For years, my dad added pecan meal to his chocolate chip cookies instead of chopped up nuts.  When I made my own for the first time, I ignored the “chopped nuts” part of the recipe and they never tasted like his cookies.  Every time I’ve made them since, it’s been the same result and I could never figure out why.  Until now.  [The mini-egg chocolate cookies also calls for pecan meal.]  Now I’m hooked.  This recipe is based on the Toll House chocolate chip cookie dough recipe.


  • 1 cup + 2 tbsp bread flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
  • 2 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 3/8 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup coursely chopped strawberries (or more if desired)
  • 1/2 cup pecan meal
  • 1/2 to 1 cup of chocolate chips (for melting)


  1. Mix flour, baking soda, and salt in a small bowl and set aside.
  2. Beat sugar, butter, and vanilla until creamy.
  3. Add egg and mix well.
  4. Gradually add flour mixture.
  5. Stir in pecan meal and mix well.
  6. Coarsely chop strawberries and stir into mixture.
  7. Drop by teaspoonfulls onto baking sheet and bake for 9-11 minutes at 375 degrees F.
  8. Melt chocolate chips via your favorite chocolate-chip-melting method as the cookies cool.
  9. Once mostly cool, decorate the cookies with chocolate!  I dipped half of each cookie and let them dry on wax paper before packing them up.

This recipe makes about 30 cookies, more if you make them smaller.  I was going to write a bunch of words that described how good they are, but I couldn’t find any.  Pictures are MUCH better.  Drool away, because they’re AWESOME.
