Monster Cookies

Monster Cookies | Adventures of a Hungry Redhead
There are many things monstrous about these cookies:
1. They require a full jar of peanut butter
2. You’ll need a stick of butter in addition to the jar of peanut butter
3. They require four cups of oats
4. You add 1.5 cups of any and all mix-ins you like
5. The dough is monstrously addictive

Oh yeah, and it’s a Paula Deen recipe and some of you may think she is a monster. Continue reading

Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies | Adventures of a Hungry Redhead
I know I just posted Peanut Butter Chocolate Swirl cookies to the blog last week… and P’Nutty Slutty Brownies the week before that.. and Peanut Butter Cup S’more Bars before that, but is it too soon to post another peanut butter and chocolate recipe? Am I becoming a two-bit chocolate peanut butter pony?

I stumbled across this recipe looking for a new chocolate chip cookie recipe and, hello, when you look at the photo how can you NOT Pin It and bake them? Lucky for me (and now you) these are as good as they looked, which can often be a rare occurrence where Pinning is concerned. Continue reading

Biscoff Oatmeal Cookies

Biscoff Oatmeal Cookies | Adventures of a Hungry Redhead
OK runners, let’s be honest; we enter half marathons, marathons, 15Ks, 5Ks, for the swag. The t-shirts, the medals, the water bottles… the free samples at the expo. I rely on those expos to stock me up on my Luna Bar, Lara Bar and Cascadian Farms granola bar samples. They’re the perfect size for traveling. Not to mention the coupons and discount apparel. Ok fine, we all want to set a new PR too.

At the Hot Chocolate 15K in Atlanta, I encountered a new vendor of samples: Biscoff. And this wasn’t just a sample, it was a full size jar of Biscoff spread! Of course, as a Delta frequent flyer, I’ve had more than my fair share of Biscoff cookies and as a food blogger, I’ve been well aware that Biscoff makes a “cookie spread” similar to peanut butter. So it’s odd that I never bought a jar of Biscoff spread at the store before. Maybe this was destiny? Continue reading

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies for Sandy Hook

Cookies and Crafts for Sandy Hook
There will not be a Fired Up Friday post today. Instead, I’m joining my fellow bloggers in #BloggersForSandyHook. Today, we post in honor of the victims, families and community of Newtown, CT.

I know parents everywhere, upon hearing of the shootings at Sandyhook, immediately thought of their children and wanted them in their arms as soon as possible. I do not have kids. I thought of my mom.

Red and Mom at Pep Band
This is my mom and I. My mom is a teacher. She teaches music. Never did I hear her refer to “my students,” they were always “my kids.”

I thought about my mom and my heart sank, because I knew that if that was her school, she would have done everything she could to protect her kids. Continue reading

Old Fashioned Iced Oatmeal Cookies

Iced Oatmeal Cookies | Adventures of a Hungry Redhead
Call me old fashioned, but this cookie and me were destiny. I wasn’t looking for the perfect iced oatmeal cookie, but it found me.  It stared up at me from Pinterest with a look that said “I may look like just an average oatmeal cookie, but I’m special.” It was the holiday season, so I figured oatmeal cookies would ship well and be enjoyed by anyone with a soul (conveniently, I only ship cookie gifts to those with souls).  From the elegant simplicity of the recipe to the first test bite, to the icing droplets, this cookie saw right through me and it won me over.

I already have a go-to oatmeal raisin cookie recipe, but that’s like comparing apples and oranges. Those cookies are thick and chewy and the raisins are pops of sweetness. These iced oatmeal cookies are thin — soft in the middle with crisp edges — and the icing melts in your mouth adding just the right amount of sweetness to the cookie – like a perfectly glazed donut. See, donut,  it knew my weakness. Continue reading
